The FLX has distinct design features that include non-welded ferrule tubes for ease of tube replacement. The package includes a ProFire® burner for a completely integrated and engineered solution from a single source. Removable sectioned side panel design permits full access to all tubes. The field erectable option allows you to replace boilers in tough to access spaces. The pressure vessel is assembled at the factory and hydro tested. During the disassembling the tubes are matched marked for easy installation on site. The boiler is a 5-pass cross flow water tube design. This allows for maximum heat transfer thru every pass. The gas flow design of the FLX does not require baffles which lowers maintenance costs throughout the boilers life. A fully water-cooled furnace reduces heat loss from the furnace section. The design eliminates the need for costly maintenance on side or rear insulation, which reduces the total cost of ownership.
