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.

WESTFIELD, Mass., August 2004 -- RBI now provides high efficiency Futera II Series boilers with an optional stainless steel jacket. The brushed stainless steel jacket provides corrosion resistance for indoor or outdoor installations in harsh environments such as coastal areas and processing applications requiring wash down.
Futera II Series boilers, featuring non-condensing design, provide up to 85% efficiency with industry leading NOx levels of less than 10 ppm. The boiler features an advanced troubleshooting and self-diagnostic control that provides step-by-step cycle of operation. Each step is automatically tested and indicated, allowing for simplified and less costly troubleshooting.
Quality components include a rugged heat exchanger with bronze headers and fittings that prevent rust and corrosion for the life of the boiler. Finned tubes are industrial-grade copper with fins and tube walls formed as one for maximum heat transfer.
The compact, low maintenance design and venting flexibility of Futera II Series boilers permit easy installation and service. Seven models are available ranging from 500 to 1950 MBH. Futera II Series boilers are ideal for any domestic hot water or hydronic space heating application.
