New, Premium Residential Boiler for All Comfort Heating Needs Including High-Performing Combi Applications 

The future of residential comfort heating has arrived with the introduction of the ECO® Tec high-efficiency boiler from Weil-McLain®. The new ECO Tec premium boiler meets nearly all residential application needs including multi-zone and combi applications. It features a long-lasting fire tube heat exchanger and is available in combi versions with response time and domestic hot water (DHW) output designed to meet the demanding needs of residential replacement applications. ECO Tec is easy to install, use and service, operates whisper quiet, and is among the most energy efficient residential boilers available today.

ECO Tec is available in four heat only sizes ranging from 80 to 199 MBH. The combi versions are available in three sizes – 110, 150 and 199 MBH – with hot water output up to 5.4 gallons per minute (GPM) and features Weil-McLain’s advanced ECO BOOSTTM technology to provide rapid DHW response. ECO Tec also includes built-in zone control, connects to four thermostat inputs and features an easy-to-use setup wizard and heating system presets.

ECO Tec features exceptional domestic hot water performance and was developed with Weil-McLain’s next generation, easy-to-use Unity 2.0 control with color touch screen display. Contractors will appreciate the ease of installation, use and service, while homeowners will enjoy high performance and energy-efficient comfort home heating.

Featuring a 95% AFUE rating, ECO Tec is among the highest energy efficient residential boilers in the industry. ECO Tec achieved the “Most Efficient” rating level from Energy Star® in 2020 and is rated to deliver maximum operational cost savings to homeowners.

The unit’s durable stainless steel fire tube heat exchanger features a vertical orientation for “self-rinsing” during operation, and a polypropylene condensate-collector base that provides better corrosion resistance than traditional stainless steel, helping to ensure a long service life. A sound suppressing air silencer on the heat exchanger provides whisper quiet operation.

ECO Tec is designed for easy maintenance and service with a spacious cabinet that allows for full access to internal components, common parts for all unit sizes and the easy-to-use control touch screen display.

The new CerroZone™ indoor air purification system achieved a 99.9684 percent reduction of live COVID-19 in a single pass in under 30 seconds, according to independent testing at the University of Missouri Laboratory for Infectious Disease Research (LIDR). “We are thrilled with the dramatic results confirmed by LIDR and are excited to prepare the product Read more

The new CerroZone™ indoor air purification system achieved a 99.9684 percent reduction of live COVID-19 in a single pass in under 30 seconds, according to independent testing at the University of Missouri Laboratory for Infectious Disease Research (LIDR).

“We are thrilled with the dramatic results confirmed by LIDR and are excited to prepare the product for market launch,” commented Michael Duggan, President of CerroZone LLC. “We appreciate the outstanding work done by the LIDR team led by Dr. Paul Anderson.”

Duggan said CerroZone plans to initially launch two product configurations, a mobile unit and a wall/ceiling mounted unit.

Unlike UV-C based systems, Duggan said, CerroZone will offer the market a compelling value proposition without need of frequent replacement of expensive UV bulbs and accessories.

“Another key difference versus competing products,” he said, “is that CerroZone units will be whisper quiet.”

Testing on other pathogens is being planned for 2021 with similar results anticipated, Duggan said.

CerroZone will apply under Section 510(k) of the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act, which requires device manufacturers to notify the FDA of their intent to market a medical device at least 90 days before launching the product.

The patent-pending system was developed in conjunction with Micron Pure™, a Hecto Group™ company.

Details and updates will be shared on www.CerroZone.com.

With the acquisition of HoldRite in 2017, RWC knew it had gained something special. Well-known and respected for its firestopping solutions, HoldRite continued to lead brand and category growth through product innovation well after the acquisition.

And after the successful introduction of the first iteration of HoldRite firestop sealants in 2019, RWC is now offering an even more robust solution with the launch of the HydroFlame 300 self-leveling (HF300SL) and HydroFlame 300 caulk-grade (HF300CG) silicone firestop sealants.

First launched in June 2020, the HF300SL and HF300CG are moisture-resistant silicone fire sealants designed for areas subjected to high levels of moisture or when UL listed W ratings are required. As quick curing silicone sealants, they can also be used across a variety of pipe types. The self-leveling HF300SL is designed for floor applications, while the HF300CG is a caulk-grade sealant designed for use on both floor and wall penetrations.

“The new iterations of our firestop sealants will provide contractors a solution that is both excellent for W ratings and washout conditions while also developing new efficiencies,” said Jeff Hamilton, firestop product manager at RWC. “HF300SL and HF300CG will simplify installation and create new standards to elevate contractors’ businesses, especially where W-rated sealants are needed.” 

RWC pursues supreme quality through each product design. With continued investment in firestopping solutions, the manufacturer is continuing to lead one of the most innovative and transformative segments in the market.

The new silicone sealants are just one part of HoldRite’s proven system of firestopping solutions. Customers have come to understand the value and advantages of using HoldRite’s HydroFlame products for firestopping needs, and when they express the need for additional solutions, RWC listens.

“We are in the field and partner with customers to ensure we hear feedback first-hand. We take those inputs to our team to help inform product improvements and innovation,” Hamilton continued. “By listening to feedback, we are evolving how and what we create to make efforts more efficient and cost effective.”
