HYTECH Boiler - 1983 Wall Hung USA

what do you want to know?

These have been either very good or very bad. We have about 4,500 of them here in Rhode Island. Many of them still running. They are no longer made as a heating boiler. Paloma-Pak water heaters are still around.

There were some incidents with the heat exchanger melting down and causing carbon monoxide incidents.

R.L. Gourley has parts as was already posted. They are located at 80 Felton Street, Waltham, MA 02254-0030 Tele 617-894-2301 FAX 617-894-9500.

If it is still working and in good shape then leave it alone. Does the model you have use spark ignition or a thermocouple?

    HYTECH Boiler 1983 Wall Mount USA


    We have a customer that has a HYTECH Wall Mount Boiler made in 1983. The Manufacturer is out of Shrewsbury, MA.

    Input ratings on the boiler is 121,500 btuh Max 36,400 btuh min. There's a rotary switch on the front with 3-settings. This appears to be 3-seperate chambers and/or firing rates. The flue is standard and piped to the chimney.

    Does anybody have any information on this boiler?


    If it truly is a USA Wall Hung, it's the oldest one I know of, and it's still operating.
  • Was originally Paloma-Pak

    I have anything you want as to literature on all of the Hy-Tech or Paloma Pak wall hung/chimney mount boilers.

    Parts are still available, I installed a couple back in the early 80s and they are still around along w/ appx 10 more we work on. We get parts from Gourley co. in Massachussets. Good luck, Tim

    Model PP16NE

    Do you have anything on the PP16NE.

    The boiler still works and the customer is questioning whether to change it out because it's 24yrs old.

    It sounds like there's several still around.

    It sounds like you have a good history with these boilers, are they fairly reliable? Even at 23-24yrs old?

    Sounds like they've been reliable. Any additional info would be appreciated.
