Caleffi will be introducing its new LegioMix electronic mixing valve this week. The LegioMix is an electronically controlled point-of-distribution electronic mixing valve for commercial domestic hot water systems. The LCD/LED controller/user interface displays set points, variables, alarms, data logs and programs.

Intellihot
Intellihot, manufacturer of on-demand tankless commercial water heaters, is debuting the iQ3001. The company touts the iQ3001 as the largest and most powerful on-demand tankless water heater in the world. It has a capacity of over 3,000 MBH, 3 million BTU/hr, 4,400 GPH, and a 100:1 turndown ratio. The unit occupies 80 percent less valuable floor space than traditional systems. The unit is optimal for hotels, multi-family residential buildings, correctional facilities and hospitals.

Navien
Navien will be introducing a new Fire Tube Boiler line. The NFB, Navien Fire Tube Boiler, is designed for residential and light commercial applications. Four models will be displayed at AHR.

UV Resources
UV Resources will be showcasing a product that ensures an ultraviolet-C (UV-C) system’s long-term effectiveness by alerting users when it’s time for a lamp change. Other UV-C solutions will also be on display that decrease HVAC/R system pressure drop, boost heat transfer efficiency, and save 10 to 25 percent in energy.
