Solo 399 Boilers

JohnJohn Posts: 1Member
I am a building owner thinking of putting a Triangle Tube 399,000 BTUH boiler into a commercial building with floor heating. Does anyone have any experience with this product and is it a good choice. Any input is invited.

    Best high efficiency condensing boiler I have seen. We

    have been installing 399s for about 18 mos now. I think we have about 12 of them in and running for up to about 16 mos now. No problems to date. Great savings in these buildings over the old equipment also. Perfect fit for floor heat bldg also. Good luck, Tim

    I've been using

    the Burnham Alpine 399's on a few large products I've had come up lately and I'm very happy with them, the one thing I really like is you can concentric vent them. I personally hate the look of PVC venting on the outside, it looks cheezy.

  • How did you attach those heavy buggers to the brick wall?

    did you through bolt them or just lots of anchors?

    Triangle Tubes

    No problems with these five 399's heating a "house" in Montana. The job is not yet complete.

    Thanks for the kind comments, guys.

    We mounted them on factory brackets, which we anchored to the brick with double expansion shields.

    I really like this job if I do say so myself.

    What happened to the original poster?

    Matt, did you do all the mains in victaulic or just the boiler

    room, and I must also ask, why??? Tim

    We did all of the mains and the majority of the boiler room in Victaulic as an experiment in saving money. We feel that Vic is superior to threaded black pipe given the fact that glycol and threaded connections don't get along.

    2,000,000 btus, that is sickkkkk. I bet they are even going

    to apply for the federal tax credit for installing high efficiency boilers. I think they ought to tax for high energy use single family homes. I mean if it is a house of say 4, then we allow for energy use of xx amount per person, ignore the size of house and then for every $ over the allowed it is a 50% tax on that amount. All energy useage is reported like on a W2 and it can easily be tracked. I do a lot of large home work and it sometimes makes me ill as to the waste that takes place.
