Futera XLF: Efficient Power, Sized to Your Vision
Today’s boiler and water heater markets demand high efficiency in smaller spaces – both mechanical room space and equipment size. RBI has the solution to both situations. Engineered performance in a small package is the Futera XLF. Futera XLF brings a proven history of solid performance to even higher levels. XLF’s compact footprint and application flexibility provide solutions for all applications big and small.
When we say big – we mean big. XLF capacities reach 10,000,000 BTU/h occupying the smallest footprint on the market today.
More horsepower – less space…..Futera XLF.
The Futera XLF is designed with 5-to-1 turndown, up to 88% efficiency, and backed by RBI reliability and ease of service. Those are just a few of the ways we are helping you solve today’s commercial design challenges. And having double the power in the same compact dimensions — width, depth, and height — doesn’t hurt either.
Big-Time Components, Small Diameter Vent
Like all RBI products, the Futera XLF is built with the highest-grade components and materials. The heat exchanger’s solid bronze headers prevent rust and corrosion for the life of the unit. XLF’s symmetric air/fuel coupling provides a high degree of safety while ensuring consistent combustion quality regardless of changes to fuel or air flow. In addition to its compact dimensions enabling 2.5 to 10 million Btuhs to be installed in a small space, its small vent diameter is easy to work with and reduces vent material costs. Removal of top and front panels is simple, streamlining installation and service.
The Turbo Pilot®, Rugged & Reliable
Another investment in the reliable performance that’s built into the XLF is its patent-pending Turbo Pilot system. Far more durable than any Hot Surface Ignition and more robust than a simple direct spark system, the Turbo Pilot gives burner ignition a sure, powerful source. UV detection keeps system diagnostics informed about performance; a technician can also use the observation port to confirm spark/flame without removing the pilot or burner assembly. And if maintenance does need to be performed, a few seconds is all that’s needed to pull, clean, or adjust the pilot.
Every premium efficiency boiler manufactured by the Mestek Boiler Group is integrated with HeatNet 3.0® – an innovative, digital BoilerManagement System that provides consistency and feedback through digital communication. By continuously monitoring several systemcharacteristics, HeatNet 3.0 modulates boiler firing rates to maximize turndown ratios and maintain peak efficiency – no matter the load.
HeatNet 3.0 doesn’t just benefit stand-alone boilers; it is a valuable and cost-saving tool in operating a multi-boiler Master/Membernetwork of up to 16 boilers, including mixed-size units. By functioning as a boiler management system, HeatNet 3.0 can incorporate amixture of condensing boilers and non-condensing boilers to eliminate costly third-party, wall-mounted boiler control platforms.
