boilers and water heatersDesigned for versatility and energy savings, the XP boilers and XP automatic circulating water heater units bring together touchscreen simplicity and high-efficiency operation. The boilers and water heaters can be used for large-volume commercial applications. With a combination of control features and modulating capabilities, XP high-efficiency fully condensing boilers offer high outputs for demanding applications ranging from 920,000 to 3.4 million Btuh. XP models are designed to be used in both hydronic and potable hot-water applications such as large-volume, full-service hotels and high-rise apartment complexes as well as resorts, government buildings, schools, and hospitals. XP models are equipped with state-of-the-art stainless steel heat exchanger technology, which can achieve thermal efficiencies of up to 99 percent when used in low-temperature applications. The multipass/multiburner heat exchanger is designed to optimize efficiency and minimize operating costs with every heating cycle. Each unit features fully modulating burners with a turndown ratio of up to 20:1, which allows an unprecedented range of load-equalizing firing rates, the company claims. XP models match exact boiler output to the building’s needs or requirements. The control operates each of the burners as a separate boiler, which means that it is able to send error messages about problems with one burner while activating another – thus preventing system shutdowns.
