Gas-Fired Boiler - RBI Water Heaters - Facility Management Product Release


RBI Water Heaters
website | Company information


The Futera Fusion is a gas fired condensing boiler with full modulation and a 3:1 turndown. Available in sizes from 500 to 2000 MBH, it is well suited to applications with low operating, return, or make-up water temperatures.

The boiler features advanced heat exchanger technology with a gasket-less primary heat exchanger with solid bronze headers and finned copper or cupronickel tubing for superb heat transfer. A stainless steel secondary heat exchanger is designed to operate at the boiler's full flow rate. It operates in full condensing mode at all times, while a temperature mixing system protects the boiler's primary heat exchanger. A metal-fiber burner allows seamless modulating turndown, low emission levels and quiet operation. In addition, the system automatically adjusts energy input to match the heating load.

The boiler offers a larger heat transfer surface area than any competitive product currently available, according to the company. Every model has a minimum full input efficiency rating of 94.5 percent with certain sizes achieving a rating of 97.5 percent. At minimum inputs, each model is capable of producing efficiencies as high as 99 percent.

The structural steel base is designed to fit through a 30-inch doorway. The boiler comes with a 21-year, non-prorated warranty against damage from thermal shock.
