Cleaver-Brooks Extensive History of Hydronic Boilers Highlighted in New Video

THOMASVILLE, GA (November 30, 2023) Cleaver-Brooks announces the release of a video that details the significant impact Cleaver-Brooks has had on the hydronic boiler industry for the past 70 years. Since introducing its first hydronic firetube boiler in the 1950s, Cleaver-Brooks has led advancements in boiler development, providing engineers greater flexibility in their system designs as well as improved efficiencies for facility owners.

Cleaver-Brooks Director of Hydronics Catie VanWormer, PE, LEED AP, said, “From the development of our original firetube and flexible watertube boilers to our condensing boiler systems, our engineers have a proven track record of delivering reliable hydronic boiler solutions that provide safety, efficiency, and long service life, all with minimal maintenance.”

During the past decade alone, Cleaver-Brooks has introduced four industry-leading condensing boiler systems. In 2013, our engineers developed the ClearFire®-LC fully condensing boiler, the largest-capacity condensing boiler on the market for several years. This boiler features an optimized heat exchanger with extended heating surface design and AluFer® technology.

Six years ago, Cleaver-Brooks launched the ClearFire-CE (CFC-E) boiler, designed for use in variable-flow pumping systems, and voted the 2019 Product of the Year by consulting-specifying engineers. The CFC-E provides superior performance with system engineering flexibility and is easy to install, operate and maintain.

Last year, Cleaver-Brooks unveiled the SwitchFire® dual-fuel condensing boiler, named the 2023 Product of the Year. Developed for markets requiring redundant fuels and larger capacities, this boiler features a custom-designed Weishaupt burner and controls for dual-fuel applications.

Our latest innovation, the Next Generation ClearFire-CE fully condensing boiler, debuted this year. Delivering up to 99% efficiency, this high-mass boiler combines the patented TurboFer® heat exchanger technology with innovative industry-leading controls, 10:1 turndown on all sizes, and features a robust design that is built to last.
