Triple-Flex™ Ultra-High Efficiency Boilers
Bryan Triple-Flex™ (patent pending) Ultra-High Efficiency Condensing Boilers feature flexible stainless steel tubes, minimum thermal efficiency of 90% with 160° return, 180° supply at 100% firing load. Efficiencies of 99% are achievable with lower return water temperatures as found in new building designs. Triple-Flex boilers fire at 3,000 MBH input, with sub 30 PPM NOx utilizing a hybrid metal fiber 5:1 turndown burner.
Triple-Flex boilers are suited to deliver the industry's highest operating efficiencies up to 99% in new buildings designed for condensing boiler conditions and better than 90% efficiency in retrofit applications not designed for condensing boilers.
