The Weil McLain Ultra Commercial Mod Con Gas Boiler is high efficiency gas boiler, which is available in two sizes and models, the model 550 and model 750, which have thermal and combustion efficiencies reaching around 94%. The Ultra Commercial is a modulating condensing boiler which adjusts its firing rate to closely match your heating needs and extracts as much heat as possible from the flue gases for maximum efficiencies.
The Weil McLain Ultra Commercial model 550 has a maximum input of 550 MBH and can modulate its firing rate as low as 110 MBH with a thermal efficiency of 93.9% and a combustion efficiency of 94.7%. The Weil McLain Ultra Commercial model 750 has a maximum input of 750 MBH and can modulate its firing rate as low as 150 MBH with a thermal efficiency of 93.6% and a combustion efficiency of 94%. Weil McLain was founded in 1881 and is and is recognized as an industry leader in the home and commercial heating industry. Weil McLain is headquartered in Michigan City, Indiana and has a manufacturing facility in Eden, North Carolina with over 700 employees around the world.
The Weil McLain Ultra Commercial Mod Con Gas Boilers are Modulating Condensing boilers, which means that they modulate the firing rate automatically according to your actual heating needs closely matching the input without wasting fuel. The condensing feature utilizes heat in the flue gases to preheat the water returning to the boiler and actually scrubs so much heat out of the flue gases that water vapor in the flue gases condense to liquid. These mod con boilers operate at the highest possible efficiencies giving you the maximum possible return on your energy dollar. The Weil McLain Ultra Commercial Boilers utilize a stainless steel pre-mixed mesh burner that has a 5:1 turn down, with a variable speed blower, negative regulated gas valve, and venturi mixing body which provide a precise mixture of fuel and air for clean burning and maximum efficiency. The Weil McLain Ultra Commercial Mod Con Gas Boilers meet the Low NOx emission requirements and are certified by the SCAQMD meeting the rule 1146.2 requirements.
The Weil McLain Ultra Commercial Mod Con Gas Boilers are designed for a Quick and easy installation with a compact ready to install package boiler that can be vented with PVC up to 100’ for direct vent and exhaust. The Ultra Commercial is compliant with CSD-1 meeting the requirements for assembly, installation, maintenance, and operation of controls and safety devices on the boiler. Also featured on the Ultra Commercial is the U-Control Module, which controls safety and operation by monitoring ignition control, high limit, low water protection, burner modulation, alarms, priorities, outdoor reset, manual reset, control up to 4 circulators, warm weather shut down, temperature management with up to 3 set points, and boiler status on the 3 ½” LCD display. The U-Control can also up to 3 boilers with up to 11 preset configurations.
The Weil McLain Ultra Commercial Mod Con Gas Boilers standard equipment includes an aluminum heat exchanger, direct spark ignition, temperature and pressure gauge, manual reset low water cut off, high limit, low and high gas pressure switches, sensors for system water temp, inlet & outlet temperature, and flue gas temperature. Also standard is a 30-psi relief valve with options for 50 & 80-psi, drains in the vent adapters, vent screens, condensate trap, a front jacket, which is removable for servicing, and an orifice for propane conversion. The standard electrical components on the Ultra Commercial include a power switch, 50 VA Transformer, and a line voltage receptacle for servicing. The Ultra Commercial has 2” tappings for supply and return, 1 ¼” gas connection, 1” condensate connection, measures 47 ¼” W X 18 3/16” D X 46 ½” H with the model 550 weighing in at 505 lbs. and the model 750 weighing 550 lbs.
The Weil McLain Ultra Commercial Mod Con Gas Boilers are provided with a 2-Year Limited Parts Warranty on the entire boiler and a 10-Year Limited Parts Warranty on the heat exchanger.
