Alpha introduces modular range of commercial boilers

Alpha Heating Innovation, boiler, commercial boiler

Alpha Heating Innovation has launched a range of commercial boilers comprising nine models with outputs from 200 to 900 kW. ARES Tec boilers incorporate self-contained modules, each with its own down-firing pre-mix burner, fan, ignition and safety controls to accurately match output to demand.

An integrated boiler cascade manager spreads the load evenly between the modules. To ensure equal daily rotation and even running times, the boiler cascade manager alternates the ignition of the modules every 24 hours.

Heat exchangers have serpentine waterways to optimise heat transfer and a cast-pin design to increase surface area.

There are three flueing positions (rear or either side). Hydraulic and gas connections on models from 200 to 350 kW can be to the left or right.

The control panel is hidden in a pneumatically controlled housing to help prevent unwanted interference with settings. An external sensor for weather compensation comes as standard.
