Pensotti Quality Heating Boilers and Panel Radiators – A COMMITMENT TO QUALITY

PNA, Inc. is proud to supply you and our network of dealers with the high quality PENSOTTI BLUELINE Cast Iron Boiler throughout the North American marketplace.

We are confident that your purchase of the PENSOTTI home comfort package will provide years of efficient, economical, trouble-free operation.

“Quality remains long after the price is forgotten”.

The PENSOTTI BLUELINE boiler is a high efficiency residential heating appliance that provides maximum energy utilization and the highest efficiency.

Fuel cost savings can only be achieved by matching the PENSOTTI BLUELINE boiler to the true heat loss of your residence. During the past couple of decades, the trend towards improving wall and ceiling insulation levels and eliminating air infiltration by caulking and weather-stripping, has made most existing heating appliances oversized.

When you purchase a PENSOTTI home comfort system your new appliance will be sized on the basis of the new heat loss calculation. This will ensure that your new PENSOTTI home comfort system will deliver only the amount of heat required to match your actual home’s heating demand. We want to provide you with the maximum comfort level achievable combined with the highest fuel cost savings.

The following are useful bits of information presented under a series of sub-headings.

Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (A.F.U.E.)

The A.F.U.E. is a measure of the estimated ability of a heating appliance to extract heat from the fuel, based on a full heating season.

The A.F.U.E. increases as the burner on time increases until it reaches ‘steady-state efficiency’. Steady state is the efficiency of the appliance measured when the burner is running.

Any time the burner cycles on and off, the A.F.U.E. drops because of “off-cycle” losses. The A.F.U.E. drops most sharply when the heating plant operates between 10 and 30% burner on time.

An increase in the percentage of burner on time improves the A.F.U.E.

A General Comment

The PENSOTTI BLUELINE boiler is a high quality, efficient oilfired heating appliance, which must be installed and serviced by a trained and if required licensed service technician.

Oilfired installations should be installed in accordance with NFPA31 and NFPA211 when no local code is in effect. Be sure that the installation is according to all National, State and local codes and authorities having jurisdiction over heating, electrical, plumbing and oil burner systems.

The electrical system to this unit should be supplied by a separate circuit provided with a fused disconnect switch at the service panel.

All boiler installations must conform to the A.S.M.E. Boiler Code. If the boiler requires National Board approval consult PNA, Inc. for special order. Many states and local authorities require National Board inspection and registration for installation in buildings used for public assembly, more than four (4) apartments, etc.

It is important therefore that these instructions be followed carefully and that a competent PENSOTTI dealer installs the BLUELINE Series boiler only.

The boiler should only be used as the primary heating source of a well-designed and installed hydronic heating.

It is the responsibility of the installer to ensure that this boiler is installed properly and that all settings and adjustments are made before putting the unit into service.

The boiler is provided with a Lifetime Limited Warranty. A copy of the warranty is found on the inside front cover.


Hawkfield Gallery Consultants Review – Fine Art of Buying Art


First things first, do you have any idea on what an art gallery is?

For those who do not possess in-depth understanding on the role of art gallery – it is a space where different art forms are presented to public for viewing. Paintings, drawings, photography, sculptures, pottery, relics, jewelries with historical value, ancient manuscripts and archeological artifacts are some art forms that can be seen in a particular art gallery.

Art galleries exhibit art works not just to recognize and appreciate talented artists but also to help art buyers in purchasing art work that will suit their art preferences. Art consultants of a gallery may also provide assistance to those looking for a certain piece of art that interest them even if it is not in the gallery.

In some cases, art works displayed are not directly owned by the gallery but consigned to them by the artists or the owner of the artwork. This means that the artwork is loaned to a gallery for display and potential sale. This type of agreement doesn’t involve money on both sides (gallery owner and seller), not until the consigned piece is bought by a client.

One thing artists want to achieve is to have their art displayed in an art gallery and make them sellable. Hawkfield Gallery relieves artists of the need to do advertising of their works. Their website provides a list of artist they represent and they even encourage other artists to present their artworks for evaluation.

A person with knowledge in the gallery business is aware that appraising artworks are a delicate process. The very nature of price building in art is subjective to the current trends in the market. Art consultants and experts uses comparative sales approach by applying current auction sales as the basis for pricing art works.

Hawkfield Gallery has a diverse range of art at an accessible price. You don’t need to have deep pockets to own an art piece. By visiting art auctions and antique shops, the gallery gains knowledge into the quality and value of many different artworks they have collected. This ensures clients that what they see at Hawkfield is not only a broad representation of classic American art but also guaranteed high-quality and in reasonable price.

Online Security: Fighting Online Fraud Through eDNA


Long ago, a cartoon ran in The New Yorker, showing a canine seated at a desktop computer. “On the internet,” ran the caption, “nobody knows you’re a dog.”

The same premise holds true today and poses a knotty question in online commerce and FinTech: How do you know the person on the other end of a transaction is really who they say they are? And even if you do confirm their identity, how do you know that person can be trusted?

One firm, IdentityMind Global, provides real-time risk management and fraud prevention through “digital identities,” collecting data across dozens of parameters, separating the financial ecosystem into good actors — those deserving of trust (and completed transactions) — and, well, bad actors.

In an interview with PYMNTS’ Karen Webster, Garrett Gafke, president, CEO and founder of IdentityMind Global, said that the construction of digital identities, by necessity, goes well beyond data that might be thought of as standard, such as a street address, a credit card number or a two-factor security question test.

True merchant risk goes hand-in-hand with global digital commerce and, as Gafke described it, comes in the form of people with little or no history — no history of driver’s licenses, credit cards issued, traditional bank accounts or other standard bits of information. They may not even be scored by the traditional credit bureaus. Yet, these individuals are looking to do business and conduct transactions. Their would-be partners on the other end of the transaction must decide whether to enter into a relationship (however fleeting) with that consumer … or not.

Gafke noted that “transactions of any kind leave a kind of financial, online exhaust” and that each transaction has attributes that, taken together over time, ultimately, can be assembled into a digital identity. “This is real, current information,” said Gafke, “rather than just public, physical information. Good reputations are built slowly, while bad reputations come very quickly.”

That digital identity is established, as Gafke said, in IdentityMind Global’s platform, which links and finds correlations between disparate bits of information and transaction trails that “process, capture, rate and build overall profiles on online identities.” Emails, digital wallets and payments are all linked together, said the executive, to build a “trusted” digital identity.

“Trust” would be the operative word in the relationship between individuals and the firms with which they seek to do business. Trust would also extend to, and be colored by, the people associated with that individual or business. Consider how, in the age of social media, amidst concerns about money laundering, an individual might be viewed with demonstrable trails of following, say, terrorist-linked groups on Twitter.

In a recent whitepaper by the firm, IdentityMind Global also noted that additional data points may come from internet-enabled devices, which can, for instance, help bring location into consideration when determining good actors from bad and in screening across sanctioned individuals or nations.

Using these techniques, said IdentityMind Global in its whitepaper, can help reduce manual review time. There is also a financially positive impact, via a 60 percent reduction in transactional fraud from chargebacks and a 90 percent reduction in fraud that comes at the point of account origination.
