Track-mounted filter system
This filter system protects equipment by stopping airborne debris before it becomes a problem. The filters are resistant to ultraviolet rays, mold, and mildew. The track-mounting system reduces installation time and ensures a taut, wrinkle-free fit. The filters are designed to increase the operational efficiency of equipment and reduce the need for filter changes in air-handling units and the cost of water treatment in cooling towers. —Air Solution Co.

Color-coded piping products
Aquatherm product lines are now identified using a color-coded convention: The domestic water pipe formerly known as Aquatherm Greenpipe is now Aquatherm Green Pipe, and the HVAC pipe formerly known as Climatherm is now Aquatherm Blue Pipe. Aquatherm Lilac Pipe (recycled reclaimed water) will retain its name. —Aquatherm

Condensing boiler
The CREST condensing boiler is now available with inputs up to 5 million Btuh. A dual-fuel-gas train is available. Recent product enhancements include lower firing input derate numbers in high-altitude applications and thermal efficiencies as high as 99 percent. —Lochinvar

 

 

 


Chimney-relining system
The first UL-listed factory-built chimney-relining system allows relining of older 1,700°F UL 103-rated chimneys to allow attachment of a wood-burning appliance that requires a 2,100°F UL 103 HT system. All M&G DuraVent UL 1777-listed relining systems combined with a patent-pending termination have been UL approved for use in the United States. —M&G DuraVent

 


Increased warranty coverage
DENSO Corp. has increased the warranty on its MovinCool portable spot air conditioners to cover parts and labor on the entire unit for three years. The new warranty applies to the Office Pro, Classic, and Classic Plus lines. Unlike supplemental third-party warranties, the MovinCool warranty is issued by the manufacturer itself. —MovinCool



Tankless Made Simple
NPE Series gas condensing tankless water heaters feature advanced technology that revolutionizes installation by utilizing existing gas lines and flue chases. Features of the NPE Series include 2-in. PVC venting up to 60 ft, ½-in. gas lines up to 24 ft, dual stainless-steel heat exchangers, and ultralow-NOx emissions. —Navien



 

Water system filter
ORIVAL Inc. was approached by a manufacturer that had a 150-ton magnetic chiller on the evaporator loop of its cooling system. The filtration system had to handle both organic and inorganic solids and provide continuous flow from the cooling tower with minimal pressure losses and steady flow rates. A fully automatic self-cleaning ORIVAL Model OR-06-PE filter with a 200-micron stainless-steel screen element was selected, and more than seven years later, it is still going strong. —ORIVAL

Air-intake filter screens
PreVent air-intake filter screen are designed to catch debris such as cottonwood before they foul a cooling system. The screens protect the outside-air intakes on condenser coils, air-handling units, cooling towers, and building louvers. Easy to install and clean, PreVent filter screens reduce system downtime, maintenance, and man-hour cleaning while optimizing system efficiency and airflow. —Permatron

Wind-driven-rain louver
The ECD-545 5-in. horizontal blade, wind-driven-rain louver has a Class A AMCA CRP rating at a core velocity of 886 fpm for the 29-mph, 3-in.-per-hour simulated AMCA wind-driven-rain test. It has a Class B rating at a core velocity of 984 fpm for the 50-mph, 8-in.-per-hour test. The ECD-545 provides this protection with only 0.15-in. wc of water-pressure loss at a free-area velocity of 980 fpm. —Pottorff
