For generations, steel has been a far superior material for boilers. Yet, most boiler manufacturers continue to make boilers with the exact same material and technology they have used for decades, cast iron.
Our mission is different. At Energy Kinetics, we use every available resource to innovate, including steel, to make Energy Kinetics the most energy efficient and reliable boilers on the market.
Why are commercial boilers made of steel? Because steel is typically 50% stronger than cast iron. Its densely compacted uniform structure is more corrosion resistant than cast iron. Steel is ductile, flexible and easily welded into complex shapes. It heats up rapidly, expands and contracts easily and is highly resistant to temperature shock. It’s simply a better material for hot water boilers and it’s this design that last longer and runs at higher efficiency than cast iron.
System 2000 by Energy Kinetics was not only the first steel boiler to successfully compete with cast iron boilers, but it was the first one to surpass cast iron in its energy efficiency, saving consumers money. Plus, its specially formulated steel is uniformly thicker than the 5/32” thickness now found in many cast iron boilers. Additionally, it’s 50% thicker than the tubes found in most other steel boilers providing a stronger and more serviceable design with longer life.
Yet System 2000 weighs only 160 pounds and contains just 2 ½ gallons of water. This means it can reach heating temperature must faster than cast iron and doesn’t leave unused heat energy in the boiler.
Its uni-body construction has no gaskets to leak. There are no sections. There is no tankless coil flange to leak, another primary area of failure. We simply build better boilers that are not subject to the frailties of cast iron or other steel models.
System 2000’s wide circular flue passage design permits full access for cleaning, brushing, and visual inspection. And unlike cast iron designs, System 2000 keeps its original efficiency for years.
System 2000 boilers installed some 35 years ago still operate at or near their original efficiency. How long will they last? The answer is simple: 35 years and counting!
