Lochinvar’s new low NOx Knight

Lochinvar, Knight, low NOx

Lochinvar’s Knight range of water heaters now features a new type of low NOx burner. Available in four models, these water heaters provide storage capacities ranging from 108 to 358 litres with recovery rates of 140 to 290 litres per hour based on a temperature rise of 50°C.

The new Knight models produce between 22mg/kWh and 48mg/kWh, which is comfortably inside the ErP requirement of 56mg/ kWh. The popular LGL75 model, which delivers the best result at 22mg/kWh, also qualifies for the maximum two BREAAM credits for lowemissions.

Lochinvar’s new low NOx range provides a cost-effective and ErP compliant alternative for replacement applications where an upgrade to condensing may be technically difficult or not economically viable. 

By revamping the range in this way, Lochinvar is giving end users valuable room for manoeuvre. In most cases, specifiers and contractors are replacing older water heaters with new higher efficiency condensing products, but there are many circumstances where this is simply not an option.
