M&G DuraVent announced today that it has obtained a key approval for PolyPro Venting Systems. Aerco approves M&G DuraVent’s Single-Wall PolyPro for the following boiler models Benchmark 750/1000/1500/2000/2500/3000/6000; Modulex 303/454/606/757/909/1060; Modulex Ext 321/481/641/802/962/1123/1530/1912/295/2677/3060; and water heater model Innovation 600/800/1060/1350.

Benchmark Boilers: Gas-fired Benchmark boilers reduce total project and lifecycle costs while delivering energy efficiency, quiet acoustics and easy maintenance. Condensing heat exchanger design is built to withstand thermal shock and eliminates the need for boiler pumping equipment. Forced draft, modulating burners operate with unmatched turndown to minimize cycling and maximize seasonal efficiency while simplifying the venting system

Modulex Boilers: A breakthrough in high-efficiency design, this line of condensing and fully modulating boilers supports 300,000 to 1 million Btu/hr. hydronic heating systems while delivering a greater degree or operating reliability for customer peace-of-mind.

Modulex EXT Boilers: A breakthrough in high-efficiency design, AERCO’s condensing and fully modulating Modulex boilers support 321 to 1123 MBH hydronic heating systems while delivering a greater degree of operating reliability for customer peace-of-mind.

Innovation Water Heaters: Aerco’s newest line of premium water heaters. Featuring a tankless design, advanced condensing & modulating technology, and a scale-resistant heat exchanger, Innovation delivers performance and economic advantages to any system.

PolyPro: An engineered system specifically designed for venting heating appliances. Gasketed joints require no primers or adhesives and easily assemble in seconds with just a splash of water. Terminations are designed for superior performance in poor environmental conditions. PolyPro is tested and listed to the ULC S636 standard in Canada and rated as a Class IIA, IIB, and IIC vent system. PolyPro offers the only double-wall polypropylene flex in the U.S., making it durable for relining masonry chimneys and factory-built chimneys. The product is also useful for relining B-vent pipe when retrofitting it to use as a chase. PolyPro is superior in performance and easier to install than PVC or CPVC pipe, which were designed for irrigation, not venting. PolyPro has been successfully venting appliances in Europe for over 15 years.

About Aerco
Aerco International, Inc. is a leading supplier of boilers and water heating products, the originator of semi-instantaneous water heating. Founded in 1949, it introduced a revolutionary design for an indirect-fired water heater that heated water on demand, and without storage, at a controlled temperature. This innovation became today’s standard for water heaters. With continued improvements, AERCO has been able to maximize the recovery of latent heat energy, significantly increasing the operating efficiency of this equipment.
