Hamilton Engineering is a Michigan-based company, founded in 1981, that specializes in building customized hot water systems for commercial and industrial use. These individualized systems can be designed to prioritize whatever is most important for the customer—whether that’s fitting into a small space, maximizing efficiency, or staying within a tight budget.
With over 25,000 Hamilton systems installed, they serve a wide range of facilities–from dry cleaners to apartment buildings to hospital laundries.
To ensure that their systems meet the needs of these diverse facilities, Hamilton regularly works with the engineering departments of companies that produce goods that consume hot water and steam, such as dishwashers and washing machines.
That way they can make sure that the system they build will produce as much hot water or steam as needed without being oversized and wasteful.
Hamilton’s premium products are their EVO high-efficiency condensing water heaters, boilers, and pool heaters. These EVO condensing combustion systems can achieve efficiency ratings as high as 99.8%.
The EVO products come in a wide range of capacities, from 79,000 BTU/hr all the way up to 2,000,000 BTU/hr for individual units, which can be combined to fulfill even higher capacity needs.
The EVO heat exchanger is entirely built from 316L stainless steel. Other special features of the EVO line include common venting, scale monitoring, and modulating burners.
In addition to the EVO line, Hamilton Engineering also offers a copper-finned tube line of water heaters and boilers for those who are more budget-conscious. This line includes near- and non-condensing units that can achieve efficiencies of 81-88%, as well as 96% efficiency condensing models.
Hamilton also produces accessory equipment to go with their boilers and water heaters. For instance, their San-03-tyzer adds ozone to the water for self-service laundries. This sanitizes the washing machines with every cycle, destroying microorganisms like mold and bacteria. Plus, it deodorizes fabrics, leaving laundry smelling fresher.
