MCDONNELL & MILLER INTRODUCES INDUSTRY’S FIRST SELF-CLEANING PROBE FOR LOW WATER CUT-OFFS

Chicago, IL — November 7, 2005 – An innovative “self-cleaning” probe that prevents the build up of lime on the probe tip during boiler operation and provides five years of maintenance-free service has been introduced on all McDonnell & Miller electronic low water cutoffs.

Designed to prevent nuisance boiler shutdowns and potential flooding, the new self-cleaning probe reduces costly callbacks. It also reduces the time required to service a boiler.

This technologically advanced “industry-first” makes use of the water turbulence around the sensing probe to initiate the cleaning element to oscillate at the end of the probe, preventing accumulation of lime.

Ideal for both the residential steam and hot water boiler markets, the self-cleaning probe is standard on all McDonnell & Miller electronic low water cut-offs including all Series PS-800s, the RB-122, the 750-P-MT-120 and the RS1-LP.
