AM Series Boilers

The AM Series of commercial condensing boilers are essentially pre-packaged boiler plants. Each unit consists of between two and four individual modules, each with its own combustion chamber, burner, gas valve, and combustion controls and safeguards, all tied together to common water connections and assembled in a single enclosure. This provides all of the advantages of a larger boiler plant, including high turndown and multiple-unit redundancy, while still keeping installation costs down and operation simple. Full front access means near-zero side clearance with no loss of serviceability when more than one million BTUs are necessary. Installations take up minimal space and remain simple to service. Standard Modbus controls easily connect to Energy Management or Building Automation System.

The high efficiency of the AM series condensing boilers and water heaters means less wasted heat and lower operating costs. In a condensing unit, lower fire rates return higher operating efficiencies. By running multiple modules at low fire rather than one large unit at higher fire, the AM series ensures the installation is always running at its most efficient. High efficiencies also mean lower flue temperatures and thus a range of venting options. All units can be vented in polypropylene, PVC, cPVC, or AL-294C vent materials.

Model Input Output*
AM 399 399,000 351,000-395,000
AM 500 500,000 440,000-495,000
AM 750 750,000 660,000-742,500
AM 1000 1,000,000 880,000-990,000

*Output depends on a range of factors including inlet temperature and ΔT. For further information contact your local factory representative.

Cascade Sequencer
AM Series Sequencer will maximize the performance of a bank of AM Boilers or AM Water Heaters with single storage tank. The two sequencer options include:

  • Cascade Manager – Budget friendly sequencer with ability to control up to 8 units dedicated to either space heating or domestic water heating with single storage tank
  • AERCO Boiler Control 64128 – Advanced sequencer with ability to perform domestic hot water priority, equal run-time rotation, pump exercising and BACNet communication

Contractor Kit
Includes all the spare parts necessary to service and maintain the unit, including control board, igniters, flame rods, and all the screws, nuts and gaskets

Sentinel Products
Compatible with all materials found in a hydronic loop, these chemicals offer overall protection of a heating system from sludge, scale, corrosion, and freeze conditions.

Secondary Low Water Cut-Off (LWCO)
Where required by building code, secondary LWCO must be installed external to boiler.
