XES Commercial Electric Tank Water Heater

XES Commercial Electric Tank Water Heater

  • System Sentinal: immersion thermostat models employ an element diagnostic panel, utilizing light emitting diodes (L.E.D.), corresponding to the number and location of each heating element. This system monitors the on-off function of the electric heating elements.
  • Long-life ASME Tank Design: propietary steel formulation with high temperature porcelain enamel to maximize corrosion resistance resulting in a superior tank design.
  • LIFEGUARD Heating Elements: separate screw-in type elements feature a stainless steel outer sheath of INCO-LOY 840, surrounding a Nichrome wire filament to resist water chemical corrosion and burn-out even in air or sediment for long element life and long life performance.
  • Full Port, Full-flow Brass Drain Valve
  • Minimal Heat Loss Design: 85% of the tank surface area on all Rheem-Ruud Commercial Electric products are insulated with 3" of rigid polyurethane foam insulation providing superior insulating qualities. Unlike other designs, Rheem-Ruud Commercial Electrics can achieve 85% because of the unique compact layout of the heating elements. This results in heat losses less than the energy used by a 100 watt light bulb during a 48 hour standby period!

Other Features

  • Integral Fusing: all models have integral fusing for each element.
  • Anode Rods: two magnesium anodes are installed in each tank to ensure long life and corrosion resistance.
  • Temperature and Pressure Relief Valve: AGA/ASME rated and factory installed.
  • Electrical Connections: pre-wired, accessible control box with multiple knock-outs on side in size selections to match the National Electric Code. Sizes range from 1/2" to 2". A grounding screw is provided for attaching an equipment grounding conductor.
  • Single Panel Control Box: with hinged door, provides immediate access to all electrical components and elements.
  • Terminal Block: all models are equipped with U.L. listed terminal blocks for simplicity of installation. The terminal block will accept either copper or aluminum field connect wire.
  • 120 Volt Control Circuit: all units are furnished with a fused 120 volt control circuit. All controls (thermostats, high temperature limit, etc.) are operated off this basic 120 volt control circuit. This circuit is created by an internal multi-tap transformer of unique design that has four taps for primary voltages, 240, 380, 415, and 480.
  • Water Connections: hot outlet and cold inlet are 1-1/2" NPT dielectric nipples which prevent excessive turbulence of heated water and results in optimum tank draw.
