The system was specially designed as a water heater that would eliminate the chance for flammable vapors to enter into the ignition chamber. This water heater has some really great features, one of them is the New Ultra Low NOx Burner System, and this heater was designed with this concept in mind. The burner is also environmentally friendly because of the low NOx emissions.
The water heater also has a new strong and reliable burner construction, the parts of the water heater are new and improved, and they are constructed from stainless steel or an inconel alloy. These two types of materials are able to stand up to extreme temperatures. The burner is a one handed pilot ignition called a Piezo Igniter. All burner and burner parts have been tested before they are installed into the water heaters. The Select Ultra Low NOx Water Heater uses a PEXAN material which is a cross linked polymer that was created to be able to stand up to a long term high temp exposure to temps up to 400 degrees. The Diffuser Dip Tube will help reduce the amount of lime and other sediments that tend to corrode a water heater over time. The water heater itself is protected by a powder coat enamel. The better the water heater is protected the more efficient it will be and the more money you will save.
