Previous Training Sessions

 

Slant/Fin was happy to be a part of the AHR Expo in Chicago in late Jan 2012. This show featured many manufacturers of the hydronics industry. We were proud to present the Slant/Fin Hybrid system, which is a combination of a traditional cast iron Galaxy Caravan module with the 96.7% efficient Jaguar. The hybrid system combines the durability and reliability of a cast iron boiler Caravan system with the benefits of a high efficiency condensing modulating boiler.
