Bosch’s new Tronic 4000 C and Tronic 6100 C bring new levels of efficiency to on-demand hot water

Bosch Thermotechnology, a leading global source of high-quality heating, cooling and hot water systems, introduced today two new innovative members of its electric tankless water heater family: Tronic 4000 C for point-of-use, under-sink installations and the new Tronic 6100 C for whole-house applications. Both products deliver 100% electric, high-efficiency on-demand hot water with a compact design for significant energy and space savings.

“All-electric, on-demand hot water is in high demand for both consumer and commercial applications,” said Victoria Otto, product manager at Bosch Thermotechnology North America. “The Tronic 4000 C replaces previous models with a completely redesigned housing packed with new features and a tiny footprint so it can be installed out of sight under practically any sink. The Tronic 6100 C has a sleek, modern design that swaps out analog nobs with an LED screen and clean, intuitive touch buttons for temperature. This product comfortably delivers enough hygienic hot water even for large homes.”

Tronic 4000 C

The Tronic 4000 C is one of the smallest yet most energy-efficient electric tankless water heaters on the market today. At only 8.5” X 13” and only 4.4 lbs., it can be wall-mounted directly under the sink, and because it runs on electricity and doesn’t hold water, there is no venting and virtually no maintenance required. The Tronic 4000 C comes in four model options: 3.5 kW, 6.5 kW, 8.5 kW and 10.5 kW, delivering up to 96 Uniform Energy Factor (UEF) ratings.

With significant energy and space savings, this tankless water heater delivers for point-of-use applications from residential to light commercial. Although tiny, its powerful output makes the Tronic 4000 C ideal for use in homes, cabins, newly remodeled spaces and more as well as office buildings/break rooms, apartments, warehouses and even stadiums with sinks that are either not in use or in bursts of high demand, such as during an event.

Tronic 6100 C

The Tronic 6100 C provides on-demand hot water for the entire home. With the debut of the Tronic 6100 C, Bosch combines the energy savings and convenience of tankless water heaters with a beautifully streamlined, easy-to-install, compact and lightweight form factor. The stainless-steel canister inside the unit heats up the water but does not store water like a traditional tank water heater, which makes for a much more hygienic system. It also uses technology with modulating elements that ensure a constant output temperature. This means regardless of whether the water that comes into the house is near freezing in the winter or simply cool in the summer, the temperature that comes out will always be consistent with the homeowners’ desires.

The Tronic 6100 C takes up very little space with measurements of 13 ¼” X 20 ¼” and comes with 3/4″ NPT fittings for both cold and hot water connections, making it easy to install in place of outdated tank water heaters. It delivers an impressive 95% efficiency with no stand-by loss, so no water or electricity goes to waste.

Both new products offer Bosch’s 5-year warranty. For more information and complete warranty details, please visit https://www.bosch-thermotechnology.us/.

NIBCO PressACR Jaws, plumbing, pressing, HVACRNIBCO INC. introduces its jaws that are compatible with the NIBCO PC-280 tool for use on the PressACR® product line. The new jaws can be used to press the full PressACR size range through 1 3/8″ with one tool.

Available in sizes ranging from 1/4″ to 1 3/8″, the patent-pending PressACR fittings feature an interior groove design on the press ends that help support high-pressure requirements of HVACR systems.

“We are excited to announce that the new jaws can be used to press the full PressACR size range with just one tool,” said Marilyn Morgan, senior product manager-fittings, of NIBCO. “The PressACR provides a safer installation as there is no flame or fire hazard with the press technology.”

The PressACR system is a copper tube joining method that delivers consistent joint quality and is designed to meet the demands of air conditioning and refrigeration applications. Made in Stuarts Draft, Va., of the highest quality, globally sourced pure copper, PressACR fittings meet stringent certification and compliance standards that support the higher-pressure requirements of HVACR systems.

In addition to the NIBCO PC-280 press tool, the new jaws (up to 1 1/8″ inch) are compatible with other press tools featuring a force of 32 kilonewtons, including tools manufactured by RIDGID and Milwaukee.

HE Suspension System is the HVAC fabric duct industry’s first and only solution to suspending fabric duct in natatoriums, food processing, chemical plants and other corrosive environments.

FabricAir® Inc, Duluth, Georgia, the original manufacturer of fabric HVAC duct, introduces the Harsh Environment (HE) Suspension System. The HE Suspension System is the fabric HVAC duct industry’s first and only hot dipped galvanized (HDG) coating for safely protecting critical weight-bearing suspension components from corrosion in commercial/industrial building harsh environments.

The HE Suspension System is designed for use with FabricAir’s proprietary anodized aluminum H-Rail suspension products and consists of HDG threaded M8 steel rods, nuts, washers, threaded rod couplings and rod/H-Rail connectors. The specially-designed, proprietary connectors accept M8 (5/16-inch) rods, but adapt to the M6 (1/4-inch) diameters required for standard H-Rail connection. The HDG coating’s minimum 40-micron layer is thicker and more protective than most competitive coatings. Consequently, the male and female threads of the rods and receptacles are cut strategically to facilitate smooth turning.

The HE Suspension System complies with North American building standards. The HE suspension system and H-Rail are both designed to endure a minimum of 30 years in a natatorium. Natatoriums are often classified under corrosion categories of C4-C5, because they’re one of the most challenging engineering environments due to inherent high humidity, chloramines and gaseous pool sanitization chemicals. Food processing, waste water treatment, chemical and other corrosive environment facilities and are also ideal applications for the HE suspension system.

FabricAir recommends combining the HE Suspension System with Combi permeable fabric duct for a total HE air distribution system. Combi’s polyester material is corrosion resistant and its permeability prevents duct condensation formation. Optional antimicrobial fabric treatment is also available for food processing, pharmaceutical and other applications where mold, mildew and other microbes potentially grow. Combi is available with all FabricAir air distribution vent designs.

The HE Suspension System’s other advantages are:

  • Similar pricing to standard suspension systems.
  • Applicable for 8 to 90-inch-diameter (203-mm to 2,286-mm) fabric duct.
  • Does not require routine maintenance.
  • Meets all building codes.
  • Contractors are responsible for hardware that connects the suspension system to the structure.
  • Simple and quick installation with conventional tools.

The HE Suspension System complements FabricAir’s current galvanized and stainless steel suspension system options.
