Product description

The principle feature of Shinagawa’s Sankyu Boilers is their excellent thermal efficiency. Whereas other manufacturers’ boilers have exhaust temperatures of around 300°C to 500°C, our Sankyu Boilers enjoy a clear advantage thanks to an exhaust temperature of about 200°C. In short, Sankyu Boilers efficiently transfer heat to the water in the tank.
High thermal efficiency means these boilers start up quickly and that they can do the same job as other manufacturers’ boilers even though they use smaller burners, helping to save on gas and reduce running costs.
