Lochinvar is growing its line of ARMOR Condensing Water Heaters. Five new models, ranging from 399,000 to 1 million BTU per hour, will join five models from 1.25 to 4 million BTU/hr. ARMOR models now offer up to 99 percent thermal efficiency; a 10:1 turndown ratio; and direct vent flexibility up to 150 feet in floor mount, wall mount, indoor, outdoor and indoor/outdoor convertible options.
The new ARMOR models feature the next generation of the Lochinvar SMART TOUCH operating control with CON-X-US remote connectivity. The CON-X-US platform gives customers the option to monitor and manage each ARMOR water heater without stepping into the mechanical room. It will send alerts via text or email reporting changes in system status, so the user can monitor and adjust on-the-go.
Built to meet and exceed ASME Section IV requirements, ARMOR water heaters employ a next generation heat exchanger, constructed with 316L stainless-steel. The water tube design reduces head loss, providing greater performance and reliability for large commercial applications, such as hospitals, hotels and universities.
The ARMOR product line offers six venting options and installation flexibility; units permit direct-vent air intake and exhaust runs up to 150 feet.
ARMOR water heaters are installed with a storage tank to provide a comprehensive solution to the varying hot water needs of a commercial application. Lochinvar can factory assemble custom package solutions featuring ARMOR water heaters and storage tanks in a variety of quantities and configurations.
