Lochinvar unveils latest in flexible boiler technology Capable of working at high
operating pressures of up to 11bar, Herald boilers are particularly suitable for high rise buildings. They also deliver temperatures up to 88degC and at Delta T of 30degC. They are particularly compact. At 394mm wide, they are narrow enough to fit through a standard doorway and the largest model, at 228kW output, has a footprint under 0.5m2. At a maximum height of 1080mm they can cope with most headroom restrictions and can fit into the tightest of plant rooms.
Multiple flue options are available including horizontal or vertical concentric balanced flue and also conventional where runs of up to 60m are achievable. The conventional flue outlet connection is at the rear of the unit, which means the Herald is perfectly designed to be a replacement for traditional atmospheric boilers.
and hotels. If left unchecked, limescale can lead to problems such as higher energy bills (British Water estimates that just 1.6mm of limescale can increase a heating system’s fuel requirement by up to 12%), as well as premature repairs, breakdowns and replacement of secondary hot water system components and appliances, business downtime, and unnecessary, unplanned capital expenditure. To inhibit the buildup of limescale, KalGUARD® from Sentinel
Lochinvar launches appbased smart boiler control
gasfired condensing boilers. The ConXus™ system enables users to
connect their smart devices, including phones and tablets, to the onboard boiler controls so they can monitor and adjust the system operation and heating parameters from anywhere in the world. ConXus is an ancillary option, which can be
ordered and fitted to the boiler before despatch, or retrofitted on site. The app is free to download and is suitable for iPhone or Android devices. There are no ongoing costs and it provides full control over the boiler with email or text alerts keeping users connected and updated 24/7. Operation of the device is via touch screen
technology or by typing in specific information to remotely adjust set points, outdoor reset curves, pump controls and many other functions. It can also be adjusted to allow temporary
access to other users for maintenance or after sales support so that any operational

problems can be resolved as quickly as possible. The system can also be configured by the main user to allow up to three extra service personnel to receive e mail or text alerts. ConXus™ uses
colourcoded status alerts to indicate if the boiler needs attention or servicing. It describes any potential problem and offers a solution. “Smart technology
really comes into its own in this kind of application,” said Lochinvar managing director David Pepper. “Our app reduces service and repair costs and avoids potential system downtime by acting as an early warning system. “It also enables continual monitoring so the user can adjust settings at any time of day or
Lochinvar puts NOx emissions to the sword
launched a new range of low NOx, fully condensing gasfired water heaters aimed at small commercial and large residential projects. EcoSword is available in nine models with storage capacities ranging from 163 to 388 litres and with rapid hot water recovery rates from 210 to 540 litres per hour based on a temperature rise of 50°C. As a result, this technology represents a costeffective option for end users looking to use condensing technology in smaller hot water demand applications. The ‘cold zone’ heat
exchanger design ensures that the unit operates in condensing mode as much as possible and, along with its fully modulating pre mix burner, this allows it to achieve seasonal efficiencies of up to 98.2% (Building Regulations) and water heater efficiency of up to 94% (ErP) All models are WRAS certified and ‘A’ rated under the ErP Energy Labelling legislation. With air quality also an
increasingly important consideration for
specifiers, EcoSword boasts NOx emissions below 37 mg/kWh across the range and, therefore, each model qualifies for the maximum three BREEAM points available.

unit and minimal clearances of only 50mm at the side and 100mm in front. Also, all of the components can be accessed from the front of the unit to make maintenance easier. EcoSword’s storage
vessels are built from enameled steel and include a Correx system, which protects the vessel from the effects of electrolytic action, but requires less maintenance than traditional magnesium anodes. The storage vessel is
supported by a threeyear warranty; is fully insulated and jacketed; and has low standing losses. “For a company that is
more readily identified with large commercial projects, EcoSword is an important addition to our range,” said Lochinvar’s Managing Director David Pepper.
“Condensing hot water
technology has not always been financially viable for some smaller projects, but with this development we are making higher efficiency, low NOx solutions available to a wider crosssection of the market.”
Commercial is a scientifically – and independentlyproven – limescale control device which uses unique driven electrolytic technology. What’s more, KalGUARD is arguably the best limescale control device on the market in terms of overall costeffectiveness, performance, ease of installation and maintenance.
The only methodology approved in Part L
KalGUARD, which comprises a zinc anode unit, water meter and controller, permanently ‘conditions’ water by dosing it with a very low level of stable zinc. This is achieved via a controlled electrolytic process, which uses a powered zinc anode and a copper cathode, forcing naturallyoccurring calcium carbonate crystals to form as soft, non depositforming aragonite rather than hard, depositforming calcite (limescale). Electrolytic technology is the only powered deviceled methodology to
be recommended by UK Building Services Compliance Guide to Part L. Furthermore, independent testing undertaken at Cranfield University has proven KalGUARD’s ability to reduce limescale.
Permanent limescale prevenon
Forget temporary limescale control – KalGUARD continuously alters the chemical composition of calcium carbonate crystals for longlasting protection and complete peace of mind.
Not LSI dependent
night from wherever they are. This means the heating system will always run efficiently and respond to any change in user requirements or operating conditions.”
Slim, bright and powerful
KalGUARD does not rely on water chemistry and ambient temperature having a positive Langelier Saturation Index (LSI), so there is never any need for extra units or additional water analysis and liaison between manufacturer and designer. As a point of note, KalGUARD can be designed on demand, not just according to pipe size.
One KalGUARD treats an enre system
WRASapproved KalGUARD is able to treat an entire system when installed on a rising main before pump and booster sets, providing a valueengineered solution to limescale control. There is no need for additional units to be purchased and installed at more than one location, such as where water drawoff is sparse and spasmodic.
KalGUARD is proven to be suitable for successful use in conjunction with all types of heaters from leading OEM providers; there is no restriction for use with high heat flux density water heating equipment, such as continuous flow heaters, for example. This provides maximum flexibility for the designer or consulting engineer on choice of heater.
Once commissioned, KalGUARD requires only a biannual service if the system filter is fitted. Moreover, no consumables are needed for its ongoing operation, while the zinc anode lasts up to 12 years. KalGUARD comes in a range of sizes, from 22mm through to 108mm.
