Hamilton Engineering's EVO condensing boilers offer several advantages to greenhouse growers. Designed as a condensing boiler and constructed of high-quality, 316L stainless steel, they thrive on cold return water temperatures. This eliminates the need for any mixing of hot boiler water into the return water to prevent condensing or thermal shock in conventional boilers. The EVO system operates only on demand, reducing unnecessary heat loss typically found in high-mass boilers on stand-by waiting for a call for heat from the greenhouse.
