Benchmark® Platinum’s Innovative Technologies Optimize Performance and Efficiency

The Benchmark Platinum is AERCO’s most advanced boiler yet featuring a powerful bundle of innovative technologies including AERtrim (patented O2 Trim technology), Dual Returns (enables design flexibility and maximum efficiency), and onAER Remote Monitoring (unique pro-active health of system monitoring).

AERtrim
AERtrim, AERCO’s advanced, patented O2 Trim technology, monitors actual site conditions and self-adjusts its combustion process to ensure the boiler is operating at optimal O2 levels despite environmental variations such as humidity, atmospheric pressure, filter dust loading and delivered gas energy content. Proper O2 levels provide greater uptime reliability, increased energy savings, lower emissions, and an additional 1%-2 % seasonal efficiency gain.

Dual Returns
Benchmark Platinum’s Dual Returns allow engineersto take full advantage of diverse load demands specific to a site in order to design the most efficient system possible. Most traditional boilers offer a single return that forces the blending of hot and cold water temperatures. However, Benchmark Platinum’s Dual Returns keep cold water separate, creating a larger condensing zone in the heat exchanger that improves boiler efficiency up to 7%. Dual Returns are ideal for applications that feature combination systems including multi-zone space heating, space heating with domestic hot water, radiant floor heating, snow melt, and pool heating, or as the system’s by-pass to the high temperature connection.

onAER Remote Monitoring
onAER Remote Monitoring continuously monitors the overall health of the system helping customers properly maintain and protect their investment. onAER provides a convenient site that offers an instant, intuitive overview of the system including unit performance, plant efficiency, upcoming maintenance required, detailed technical data and more. onAER allows for quick resolution and prevents more serious problems from developing that can result in inefficient operation and increased expenses. Monthly reports and instant email alerts notify customers and facility managers of any faults or decline in equipment to prevent unnecessary wear-and-tear as well as premature failure. In addition to these features, AERCO offers an industrybest warranty for the Benchmark Platinum. Benchmark Platinum is an innovative, state-of-the-art system that provides maximum effi ciency for bigger savings and greater Return on Investment.
