The president of the Preferred Utilities Manufacturing Corporation, David Bohn directs new product development and handles corporate revenue and growth efforts. David Bohn took the helm as president after joining the company’s Redding, CT, office and working his way up the ranks. He has spearheaded a number of projects in his leadership role, including the development of the Advanced Performance Inject-Aire (API-AF) Low NOx Burner.
The API-AF offers extensive fuel-burning capability and an impressive efficiency that significantly reduces greenhouse gas emissions and the overall carbon footprint of users. Designed to produce a stable flame regardless of firing rate, the burner can fire a range of fuel oils and natural gas. It incorporates variable-frequency drive motor controllers for enhanced control of the forced-draft fans, which in turn provides more air for combustion and results in a reduction of energy consumption.
Preferred Utilities engineers constructed the burner for use in single-burner applications, such as cast iron sectionals, watertube boilers, and high temperature hot water (HTHW) generators. Its installation at the Stapleton Houses managed by the New York City Housing Authority has contributed to prolonged boiler life, a reduced carbon footprint, and increased electrical and fuel savings. In addition, the API-AF limits NOx emissions and meets compliance standards for Local Law 87, a green building and energy efficiency ordinance set forth by the New York Mayor’s Office of Sustainability.
