A major system failure in the hotel’s domestic hot water system would have major financial impact on the hotel’s revenue, and the failure required a solution that would prevent future recurrence.

The hotel had a storage style design with very large tanks which leads to major waste storing water at elevated temperatures. There are two (2) different pressure zones in the building at 150# on the first four floors, and 300# above with a total of 10,000 MBH load continuous every morning between 5:30 a.m. and 8:30 a.m.


Stark’s boiler team experts recommended changing to instantaneous hot water system and got production started on skids in a matter of weeks.
The solution brought in only two (2) boilers initially and included:

  • Three (3) Futera XLF 5000s
  • Armstrong Brain mixing valves
  • Schneider Electric controls with touch screen interface


Added in 1,000 gallon tank that kept water hot, instead of two 10,000 gallon tanks. All new equipment fit on the pad of the failed boiler that was demolished.
