Thermal Solutions designed its Evolution high efficiency copper-fin tube water heater to meet the complexities of today's building systems. For nearly two decades, the Evolution water heater has been the industry benchmark for quality, reliability, and performance. Coupled with the Thermal Solutions Boiler Control (TSBC™), the Evolution is the most sophisticated and easily integrated boiler product available.

The Evolution takes copper-fin tube water heater technology to the next level by incorporating a list of unique design features. These include Rugged Heat Exchanger Design, Advanced Maintenance-Free Combustion, Feature-Rich Operating Control, and Ease of Installation and Service. The Evolution Water Heater truly is a step above the rest.

Rugged Heat Exchanger Design
Central to the Evolution Water Heater's design is its heat exchanger, which boasts twice as much heating surface than our competition. The rolled copper-fin tube, patented H/F True Fin, is extruded from a solid piece of copper that results in high quality and unsurpassed heat transfer. The gasket-less header design allows for easy inspection, cleaning, and individual tube replacement. Completely enclosed in a stainless steel compartment, the combustion chamber effectively handles short-term condensing periods (cold start) to protect the boiler. The Evolution heat exchanger has thicker tubes (0.072") and more robust heads than any other water heater product (compare the weights) that makes it very forgiving, more durable and built to last!

Advanced Maintenance-Free Combustion
The Evolution ceramic radiant burner never requires inspection or maintenance! Designed to operate with NOx emissions less than 10 ppm, the whisper quiet ceramic radiant burner (<50 dBA) runs at minimal excess air levels providing high efficient, trouble-free operation. The burner features a larger surface area and lower flux that allows for greater heat transfer and more uniform heating that extends the life of the copper tubes. A rugged cast-aluminum blower assembly, fitted with a replaceable combustion air filter that is 99% efficient to one micron, is used to keep the burner free of contaminants. A commercial-grade microprocessor based flame safeguard with LED diagnostic display, proven spark ignition, and a UV flame scanner complete the Evolution's unsurpassed combustion system for safety and reliability. The Evolution boiler can be operated with its jacket panels removed during inspection, avoiding the nuisance problems associated with pressurized compartments.

Feature-Rich Operating Control
Designed by boiler experts, as stand-alone or easily integrated into today's complex building management systems, the Thermal Solutions Boiler Control (TSBC) provides unparalleled design characteristics. Key features include advanced boiler modulation, intelligent multiple unit staging (peer-to-peer) by connecting an RJ11 telephone cable between water heaters for communication, outdoor air temperature reset, warm weather shutdown, domestic hot water priority and multiple auxiliary device control, making the TSBC the most advanced onboard water heater control in the industry.

Ease of Installation & Service
All rear connections and complete front and rear access to the unit's components allows for space saving side-by-side modular arrangements. The Evolution's flexible venting options include sealed or room air combustion, direct vent, or conventional venting for multiple unit common stack arrangements. Quick setup and low maintenance make the Evolution water heater an ideal choice for either retrofit or new construction projects.
