The new FTX 1.0 features a higher input while maintaining the smaller footprint of previous Lochinvar fire-tube boilers

Lochinvar, an industry leader in high-efficiency boilers and water heaters, announces today the addition of the FTX 1.0 to its best-in-class line of fire-tube boilers. The FTX 1.0 fits neatly into mechanical rooms with limited space while offering a higher input of 999,000 Btu/hr. This expansion further bolsters Lochinvar’s offering for commercial applications.

“When designing the FTX 1.0, we relied heavily on the feedback we received from customers on previous models of our fire-tube boilers,” said Robert Wiseman, Lochinvar product manager, hydronics. “Our customers consistently emphasized their need for a higher input unit that maintained the features of our fire-tube boilers. With the introduction of FTX 1.0, customers get the features they know and appreciate at a higher input with even further improvements.”

Customer feedback led to the integration of a combustion filter into the FTX 1.0 units. The filter system collects debris from combustion make-up air, potentially extending the time between burner and heat exchanger cleanings, ultimately saving facility managers and homeowners money.

The unit’s new 7-inch LCD touchscreen display makes it easier for contractors to adjust parameters with minimal effort and provides access to the remote connectivity capabilities for improved ease of installation. The FTX 1.0 features both CON·X·US® Remote Connectivity and SmartTouch™ operating control capabilities, better connecting contractors with the unit.

Improvements from previous models also include a 10:1 turndown ratio and a thermal efficiency rate of up to 98.3%. FTX 1.0 also features an updated, sleeker look, with a new front bezel and Lochinvar’s badge front and center.

“We hope this line expansion not only provides facility managers and homeowners with extended model options but also gets them excited about the future of Lochinvar’s water heating solutions,” said Wiseman.

Lochinvar’s fire-tube boilers have a stainless-steel fire tube heat exchanger that allows them to operate over a wide range of flow rates with minimal low-pressure drops and makes the units more flexible at handling frequent fluctuations in the system flow rate. This exchanger allows units to be installed in variable primary systems, eliminating the time and materials costs of primary/secondary piping and pumps potentially needed to maintain flow in a water-tube boiler.

Berner’s Architectural Contour Air Curtain Series “outside-the-box” design sets the trend toward aesthetic, geometrically shaped, front entrance air curtains that complement modern commercial architecture

North America’s leading air curtain manufacturer and innovator, added the Architectural Contour Air Curtain Series to its Architectural Collection, giving specifiers another beautiful, technologically advanced design for protecting commercial building main entrances when the door is open.

The Architectural Contour 8 and 10 models feature the HVAC industry’s quietest operation from a high-performance air curtain.  The design targets healthcare, hotels, retail, restaurants, and other applications where thermal comfort, front entrance doorway aesthetics, and energy savings are critical.

Its patented, unprecedented aesthetic is Berner’s second departure from the industry’s decades-old rectangular box shapes after recently introducing the Architectural Elite. Featuring a sleek, discreetly contoured cabinet constructed of anodized aluminum, the Architectural Contour complements 21st Century anodized aluminum doorways and metal architecture.

The Architectural Contour 8 and 10 feature low profiles of 8-1/4 H x 20-inch D (20.9 x 50.8-cm) and 12-3/4 H x 25-3/4 D (30.3 x 60.4-cm) without sacrificing performance for protecting up to 8 and 10-foot-high (2.4 and 3.0-meter) doorway heights, respectively. Both models (including heating options) are certified under AMCA-220, which qualifies them for the new construction cost-saving vestibule exception now included in building and energy codes, ASHRAE 90.1-2019; the IECC -2015; and the IgCC.

The Architectural Contour equals the aesthetics of the Architectural Collection’s full-featured, Golden Ratio-inspired Architectural Elite air curtain, but offers an economical alternative. Specifiers can add the Elite’s standard features as à la carte options to the Contour, such as electronically commutated (EC) motors or the Berner AIR smart controller and app. When combined with the Collection’s entry level Architectural Low Profile 8 and High Performance 10 models, the Contour and Elite offer building owners a diverse “good, better, best” selection, respectively.

All air curtains in the Architectural Collection use Berner’s industry-leading, factory-installed Intelliswitch digital controller platform. The Intelliswitch features pre-set programs, a time clock, time delay, built-in thermostat, 10-speed fan control, and other integrated, end-user customizable features. The optional Berner AIR smart controller and app can be added to the platform, allowing operation and monitoring from a smartphone. The Berner AIR includes true BACnet integration and a proactive adaptive setting based on the weather. The optional Berner AIR must be ordered with the air curtain.

Heating options include hot water or electric coils. A thermostatic probe monitors the coils and reports the temperature to the Intelliswitch. Also available is Berner’s proprietary Venturi electric heater option that heats supply air from a unique blower intake setup versus the industry standard of positioning electric coils in the airstream, making the air flow less efficient.

Both the Contour and Elite models are the industry’s quietest high performance air curtains. These patented designs combine innovative out-of-sight top intake panels; Berner’s patented high efficiency, low noise, articulating Pro-V Nozzle; and quiet-running 1/5th-HP AC or EC motor choices. Depending on the selected motor and speed, typical operating noise is 49 to 55-dB, which is similar to a coffee percolator or quieter than normal conversation.

Other Architectural Contour features are:

  • Designed, manufactured, assembled and factory-tested in U.S.A.;
  • Available in most voltages;
  • Five-year warranty on ambient, two-year warranty on heated models;
  • UL/cUL-listing and AMCA 220 certification;
  • Top and wall mounting hardware is included. Glass transom mounting hardware is available.
  • Hot water coils are tested to 450-psi;
  • Architectural Contour 8 (AC08) and Architectural Contour 10 (AC10) come in installation cost-saving single length construction up to 10 and 12 feet (3 and 3.6-meters), respectively.
  • The RoHS compliant Intelliswitch Gen 4 is discreetly placed as part of a design feature along the nozzle of the air curtain, and easily accessible with a step stool or ladder for direct programming, and/or initial pairing with the Berner AIR app;
  • All Berner air curtains are simple to install, operate, and maintain;
  • Washable aluminum filters are removable and cleanable in less than five minutes.
  • Sustainability and ESG commitments – The Architectural Collection air curtains are included in Berner’s Energy Savings Calculator, which includes a GHG emissions reduction estimate.
