GTS LX Series Selected as 2018 Money-Saving Product by BUILDINGS Magazine

DriSteem’s LX Series Gas-fired Humidifier Selected as 2018 Money-Saving Product by BUILDINGS Magazine (Eden Prairie, MN) – DRI-STEEM Corporation (DriSteem) is proud to announce that BUILDINGS magazine has named its LX series gas-fired humidifier as a 2018 Money-Saving Product Award winner. The GTS® humidifier LX series (patents pending) is the most recent addition to DriSteem’s market-leading gas-fired humidifiers. The LX series has the flexibility to tackle almost any application. The LX series offers:  Condensing design provides for highest efficiency and PVC venting: Saves money on energy costs with greater than 90% efficiency.  Ultra-low NOx for a clean environment and to meet increasingly stringent regulations: Ultra-low nitrogen oxide emissions of under 20 ppm conform to SCAQMD (South Coast Air Quality Management District) 1146.2 air quality management standards for gas-fired humidifiers.  Reduced installation costs: The LX series patent-pending condensing technology ensures that the flue temperature stays under 140 °F, allowing for the use of PVC, CPVC, or polypropylene flue piping which is less expensive, easier to work with than stainless steel, and can be vented through sidewalls, saving on installation costs.  5:1 turndown ratio for accurate humidity control: The LX series has a 5:1 turndown ratio for accurate humidity control through a wide range of load conditions, providing consistent output from low to maximum demand.  Sensing technology that adjusts drain intervals automatically, in addition to accurately measuring water tank level: The LX series humidifiers’ electronic water level control accurately manages tank filling and draining with all water types from tap to deionized. This universal water control means that there is no need to change configurations based on water type when ordering equipment or retrofitting to fit new water sources in the field.  Space-saving design for ease of installation and placement flexibility: All LX series humidifiers feature a small footprint for easy installation in crowded mechanical rooms, with a wall mounting option for 50 and 75 lbs/hr models for even more placement flexibility. For installing outdoors, there is a climate-controlled outdoor enclosure option available. “We are thrilled that the LX series was selected for the 2018 BUILDINGS Money-Saving Product Award. DriSteem’s gas-fired humidifiers have been trusted for their quality in the industry for over 20 years,” said Phil Lilja, DriSteem Product Manager. “We are especially proud of the new LX series because it offers a next generation breakthrough for energy savings, installation flexibility, and environmental protection.” Finalists were evaluated by the BUILDINGS editorial staff for the money-saving qualities they offer to building owners and facility managers in areas such as energy consumption, water savings, lighting, security, roofing, and maintenance. DriSteem’s LX series is showcased in the magazine’s June 2018 issue, as part of an elite group of money-saving products.

Trend Changes to Warranty

Our Products are Outstanding!

....................and to back up this statement we are now providing 5 years warranty on IQ4 & IQ4 I/O*.

All IQ4 controllers and IQ4 I/O modules purchased from the 1st of June 2018 will receive a 5-year limited hardware Warranty.*

*This is applicable on Trend systems installed with IQ4 controllers and IQ4 I/O modules. For systems which contain a mixture of IQ4 controllers & 3rd party I/O modules the extended warranty is not offered and our standard 2 year warranty applies as this solution increases the risk to the Trend hardware installed. Offering a solution with Trend IQ4 Controllers and Trend I/O modules provides the best long term investment for our mutual end-users. It improves the long term supportability and is future proofed. So keep it simple, keep it Trend and benefit from the extra 3 years of support and protection on your Trend Controllers.

This extended warranty does not include parts of the product that are implemented to prevent cyber security issues, when it is no longer reasonable to continue to provide security updates to firmware due to advances in or availability of 3rd party components or processing performance and capacity of the original product.

We have updated our standard partner Terms & Conditions document to reflect this very positive change.
