The Smarter Choice
Have you ever wondered if there was an alternative
to all of the look-alike residential boilers out there?
A better mouse-trap that doesn't come packaged with
all of the problems so common to the typical residential
boiler? Well, you've found it. But you have to go
against the grain to cash in on all of the advantages
that come built in to these boilers. They aren't built
the same way as all of the other mouse-traps. They're
built better. We've combined the best of cast-iron
technology with copper technology to create a more
efficient, longer lasting, lighter weight, boiler
for residential heating that has a smaller foot-print
and is easier to install and service. We call it the
At the heart of the Mini-fin is our own cast iron/copper-finned
heat exchanger. Using a unique gasketless design,
we've combined the best of both worlds: cast iron
headers for long-lasting durability, and specially
finned copper tubing for higher energy efficiency.
In fact, the Mini-Fin is rated up to 84.2% A.F.U.E.-which
means lower energy consumption and operating costs.
maximum performance, the copper fins are extruded
directly from the wall of the copper tube. The result
is a heat exchanger that has a heat transfer ratio
9 times greater than ordinary copper tube. Plus, because
it's copper, there's no need to worry about rust or
corrosion-it simply lasts longer. And the gasketless
design reduces the risk of leaks or system failures
that are so common with conventional boilers.
A high efficiency Min-Fin can not only do the job
of other boilers for much less- it also needs less
space. Our 45,000 BTU unit has a footprint of less
than 2.5 sq. feet. It features a smaller profile,
too. With an overall unit height of just 28 inches,
the Min-Fin is a natural choice for applications where
headroom restrictions are factor.
The Mini-Fin combustion chamber is insulated with
our special Loch-Heat ceramic tiles. These interlocking
tiles not only insulate better than standard materials,
they're also more durable. And unlike refractory-lined
combustion chambers, this space-age material won't
ever crack or spall. Developed from the same technology
used to protect the Space Shuttle during re-entry,
Loch-Heat insulation is thinner and lighter than standard
refractory. Up to 25% lighter, which makes installation
and servicing much easier. In fact, Mini-Fin units
start at just 113 lbs.-so they can easily be handled
by just one man.
What's more, the Mini-Fin allows easy access to all
major components for servicing. We even designed the
heat exchanger to slide right out the front of the
boiler for faster maintenance, and we back it with
our exclusive 20-year Limited Warranty.
