Ilios: Natural Gas Engine Driven Water Heater
Ilios Dynamics, a subsidiary of Tecogen Inc., is showing the Ilios High Efficiency Water Heater. Powered by a highly efficient natural gas engine, this water heating module extracts energy from the atmosphere and pumps this heat to useful temperatures. Free waste heat from the engine is captured and repurposed, adding to the unit’s capacity and efficiency. Ideal for commercial and industrial sites with substantial hot water requirements, the unit offers up to twice the efficiency and half the fuel consumption of a conventional gas-fired boiler, says the company.
