HeatNet, RBI’s proprietary integrated boiler management system is the driving force behind RBI’s energy optimization philosophy for its high efficiency equipment and is standard equipment on all Fusion and Futera (XLF & III) Air-Fuel coupled products.  Designed for precise system control, Heat Net provides repeatability and feedback thru digital communication.  The control monitors boiler temperatures and limit circuit inputs, maintains system and domestic hot water requirements, supports boiler room components including system/domestic pump, boiler pump, combustion air damper and modulates boiler firing rate to maximize turndown ratios in order to maintain peak efficiency.   (Click on pdf for additional information)

3/12/2008    New Futera Fusion Boilers Are IBR Rated And Up To 97.5% Efficient

WESTFIELD, Mass. October 30, 2006 -- RBI has introduced the next generation of high efficiency commercial boilers and hot water heaters with the Futera Fusion™, a boiler that is IBR-listed and up to 97.5% efficient. The new boiler is designed to meet the changing demands of environmentally sensitive or green building design.
The gas fired condensing boiler with full modulation and a 3:1 turndown, is available in sizes from 500 to 2000 MBH. The Futera Fusion features advanced heat exchanger technology with solid bronze headers, a gasket-less heat exchanger and finned copper or cupronickel tubing for superb heat transfer. A metal-fiber burner allows seamless modulating turndown, ultra-low emission levels and whisper-quiet operation. In addition, the system automatically adjusts energy input to precisely match the heating load without over-firing or wasting fuel. In addition every model has a minimum full input efficiency rating of 94.5% with certain sizes achieving a rating of 97.5%. At minimum inputs, each model is capable of producing efficiencies as high as 99%.
A secondary solid stainless steel heat exchanger with condensate trap operates at the boiler’s full-flow rate and allows operation in condensing mode at all times. A state-of-the-art temperature mixing system protects the system’s primary heat exchanger.
The Futera Fusion is available as a fully packaged unit, including integral boiler pump, near boiler piping, low temperature mixing value and secondary heat exchanger. In addition, the new boiler comes with a full, 21 year, non-prorated warranty against damage from thermal shock. Its compact footprint of just 29-inches wide enables the unit to fit though standard doors, and its low maintenance design makes the boiler ideal for commercial, institutional and industrial applications.
