HOW DOES BRUTE™ ELITE DO IT? The Brute™ Elite Integrated Control System monitors all aspects of boiler operation, and includes several features that can improve the performance of the entire heating system. One of the most important features of the Integrated Control System is ease of use, and intuitive design. A large, back-lit LCD screen displays information in full text, rather than complicated codes. Common settings are grouped in menus for easy access, and a Quick Setup feature provides installers direct access to control settings for basic installations. Advanced Stainless Steel Heat Exchanger The Brute Elite's stainless steel heat exchanger transfers heat from the combustion process, to the water circulating throughout the heating system.

DOMESTIC WATER HEATING USING THE BRUTE™ ELITE & POWERSTOR SERIES® INDIRECT WATER HEATER Combine Brute Elite™ high efficiency and quick response with a Bradford White PowerStor Series® indirect water heater for improved performance and fuel savings over conventional water heaters. Enabling the Brute Elite’s domestic hot water priority control feature directs the boiler’s full heating capacity to the PowerStor indirect water heater when needed. In normal residential applications, this can provide nearly double the hot water capacity of conventional stand-alone water heaters, along with excellent durability. Bradford White PowerStor indirect water heaters are heavily insulated storage tanks, constructed with a heat exchanger coil designed to deliver heat from the boiler to the domestic water in the tank. Hot water supplied from the boiler travels through the PowerStor’s heat exchange coil transferring heat into the domestic water in the tank. The PowerStor indirect water heaters oversized heat exchanger coils are capable of proving more hot water than nearly any than competitor. In addition, PowerStor’s the low pressure drop can provide savings that begin with the installation.
