Burnham SteamMax

We've been installing quite a few of the new Burnham SteamMax boilers since they've been out. We like them for jobs that are > 400 EDR.

The only thing we dislike about these boilers (and there is a lot to like), is that the supply tappings are only 2", for all sizes. And the lack of a tankless coil option, which is quite strange, given all the R&D.

Burnham gets around the 2" tapping problem on the larger sizes by increasing the number of tappings/risers. Beginning at 890 EDR to 1012 EDR, there are 3 risers. Above that, up to 1400 EDR, there are 4 risers.

We haven't landed a 4-riser job yet. But we are currently building a STMX350, with 3 risers. We thought we'd share, as it's looking pretty cool...
