Nibco adds new Iron, Copper for Gas & ACR Press Fittings

 

Copper and iron press fittings are a mainstay in the plumbing and hvac industry. Nearly every job site, project or contractor has made the switch to this technology because of the promise of labor savings.

Heres a look at what is coming in 2020 from Nibco. I think what is most interesting is their entry into the Press G market (copper press fittings for gas). I’m located in Minnesota, copper piping for all fuel gas is common for both residential and commercial work. One of Nibco’s biggest competitors has recently pulled their copper press gas fitting off shelves in North America due to some changes to the CSA testing and certification standard. Nibco’s gas fittings have the CSA US stamp on them which should make them acceptable wherever copper piping for gas is allowed.

Navien’s official entry into the commercial boiler market

We caught up with Brian Fenske, Director of Commercial Sales to learn about the Navien NFB-C commercial boiler while at AHR Expo.

First let us acknowledge that no official press info has been released with delivery date, technical specifications etc at this time. As soon as we receive that information from Navien, we will be the first to share here and on our social media.

Now for all the details

Here’s what we do know about the Navien NFB-C boilers:

There will be two models available, the NFB-C-301 and 399. Each number corresponding to the Btu input rating. The model name [NFB-C] translates to Naven Firetube Boiler – Commercial. Each boiler will have at its core Navien’s unique in-house design and manufactured stainless steel heat exchanger. For more info on their new firetube click here.

These boilers will have the usual negative pressure gas system and as stated in the video, can be adjoined in cascade [up to 4 units] with common venting. Brian Fenske does a great job explaining all this and more in our video from AHR Expo, please watch below.
