Navien introduced three new innovative products in booth 1573 during AHR 2020 in Orlando, FL. The new NPN series non-condensing tankless water heaters, NPE-2 series condensing tankless water heaters and NCB-H series condensing combi-boilers were all displayed at the front of the Navien booth inside the Orange County Convention Center for attendees to get a first look at the technological advancements within each series.

Available in the NPN-Universal series (indoor or outdoor with vent cap) and NPN-Exterior series (outdoor only), Navien utilizes the technology and innovation that helped make the NPE series the number one condensing tankless water heater in North America in their new non-condensing NPN series, with some new additional features. The NPN series is the first and only non-condensing tankless series to offer NaviTech™ technology that includes a stainless-steel heat exchanger and an advanced stainless-steel burner with the same very low NOx level as the NPE. Both the NPN-U and NPN-E have built-in recirculation control, air pressure sensor, water adjustment valve and mixing valve, and are designed with a pin-to-pin matching configuration for easy retrofit installations.

NPE-2

The NPE-2 series brings the biggest update to condensing tankless water heaters since the NPE series changed the landscape of the industry in 2012. The new features found in the NPE-A2 and NPE-S2 series include a turndown ratio up to 15:1, an upgraded advanced multi-line control panel in plain English for easy set up, and increased 2” PVC venting length. The NPE-2 will continue to offer the high-efficiency features that made the NPE the number one selling condensing tankless water heater, such as dual stainless steel heat exchangers, half-inch gas pipe capability up to 24 feet, cascade and common vent capability, industry leading efficiency up to 0.97 UEF, and the patented ComfortFlow™ recirculation system with built-in pump and buffer tank on the NPE-A2.

Bradley Navigator Thermostatic Mixing Valve, plumbing, TMVsBradley Corp., an industry-leading manufacturer of lead-free valves and tepid water delivery solutions, introduces its newest Navigator Thermostatic Mixing Valve. Engineered to deliver safe water temperatures to both commercial faucet applications as well as emergency safety eyewash fixtures, this model provides a complete and efficient single mixing valve solution.

With its innovative combination of two valves in one, the Navigator TMV saves on installation time and conserves space under sinks. During regular faucet use, the TMV delivers tempered water for uses such as hand washing; in an emergency, the valve delivers tepid water to the emergency safety eyewash to meet the ANSI/ISEA Z358.1 standard for the required 15-minute flush.

This new Navigator TMV is ASSE 1070 and 1071 Certified, and includes a 3/8″ compression fitting to faucet. A reliable liquid-filled thermostat ensures safe water temperature to the eyewash, and a separate wax filled thermostat delivers safe water temperature to the faucet.

With its built-in safety features, the cold water bypass on the eyewash assures cold flow if hot water fails. Navigator TMV also offers anti-scald protection with positive shutoff of hot supply when cold supply is lost.

Designed for reliable precision, Navigator TMVs deliver accurate temperature control to within ± 3° and features an adjustable set point within temperature range.

Ready for easy direct mounting to walls, all materials are 100% factory assembled and tested.
