Westfield, Mass., July 26, 2004 -- HydroTherm's new KN-10 commercial gas fired boiler featuring Tru-Flow™, self-adaptive design technology, received an Honorable Mention for excellence in product design in the first Dealer Design Awards Program sponsored by Air Conditioning Heating & Refrigeration News magazine. An independent panel of 13 contractors acted as judges in the contest that had 119 entries from over 75 manufacturers.
"Obviously we are very pleased with this honor," said Floyd Lewis, product manager for HydroTherm. "The KN-10 was just introduced in May and is already gaining widespread approvals from both contractors and building owners alike. Its unique design represents the state-of-the-art in commercial boiler design."
The HydroTherm KN-10 is a self-adaptive commercial boiler that adjusts air and fuel under many conditions and "thinks for itself' to maximize performance and boiler safety. As such, the boiler can be used in many areas where air-inlet pressure issues may occur without any degradation in performance. The high efficiency, small footprint cast iron boiler offers a 1 million Btu/hour input in a condensing design with efficiencies of up to 93 percent.
ACHR News Publisher John Conrad stated, "Manufacturer design teams are coming up with unique ways to assist contractors in installation, service, and maintenance. This awards program is an ideal way for our magazine to call attention to products that are designed with the installing dealer in mind."
Winning entries in the Dealer Design Awards are featured in the July 19, 2004 issue of The ACHR News.
