Water Pik Technologies, Inc. has announced that its new Laars(R) Pennant(TM) and Laars(R) Rheos(TM) boilers are filling a gap in its commercial boiler and water-heating product offering and will enable the company to compete in the larger and growing mid- and high-end commercial boiler and water-heating markets.

The Laars(R) Rheos(TM) boiler, first introduced in August 2002, is said to be a high-efficiency, modulating commercial boiler.

The Rheos(TM) Model 2400 reportedly provides industrial-grade performance for hydronic and volume water applications. The new Boiler/Water Heater technology combines the precision control of state-of-the-art modulation electronics that sense the existing conditions and automatically adjust the boiler's capacity to meet the required heating load from 1.2 million to 2.4 million BTUs, according to Water Pik. Its high-density heat exchanger uses a patented, double-row, finned tube design to maximize the heat transfer surface area and balance water flow.

The Rheos(TM) Model 1200, available in May 2003, will meet the required heating load from 600,000 to 1,200,000 BTUs. The company plans to release two additional models (1600 and 2000) of the Rheos(TM) by year-end. All Rheos(TM) models may be installed either indoors or outdoors.

The recently introduced Laars(R) Pennant(TM) boiler, said to be a high-performance, low NOx, fan-induced unit is available in five models ranging from 500,000 to 2 million BTUs. According to Water Pik, the Pennant's compact, modular design allows for ease of installation and long-term maintenance. Pennant(TM) systems are available in both hydronic and volume-water versions, and may be installed either indoors or outdoors. All models are designed for staged firing to meet required heating loads. Pennant(TM) boilers and water heaters offer the building owner six different operating control programs to best match the type of installation in each building.

The company has manufactured gas-fired water-heating products for over 50 years, and has expanded its product line to include high efficiency boilers and water heaters for residential and commercial heating applications. Laars(R) water-heating systems are sold through a network of sales representatives and plumbing and HVAC wholesalers in the U.S., Canada, and internationally.
