Residential Atmospheric Vent Gas Water Heater
The Atmospheric Vent FVIR Defender Safety System® Models Features:
■ Bradford White ICON System™—Intelligent gas control with proven millivolt powered technology and built-in piezo igniter. A standard, off the shelf thermopile converts heat energy from the pilot flame into electrical energy to operate the gas valve and microprocessor. No need for external electricity.
-- Enhanced Performance—Proprietary algorithms provide enhanced First Hour Delivery ratings and tighter temperature differentials.
-- Advanced Temperature Control System—Microprocessor constantly monitors and controls burner operation to maintain consistent and accurate water temperature levels.
-- Intelligent Diagnostics—An exclusive green LED light prompts the installer during start-up and provides ten different diagnostic codes to assist in troubleshooting.
-- Pilot On Indication—Flashing green LED provides positive indication that pilot is on.
-- Separate Immersed Thermowell—High-strength advanced polymer composite thermowell provides isolation between electric temperature sensor and surrounding water. No need to drain the tank when removing gas valve.
■ Advanced ScreenLok® Technology Flame Arrestor Design—Flame arrestor is designed to prevent ignition of flammable vapor outside of the water heater.
■ Resettable Thermal Switch—Proven and reliable bimetallic switch prevents burner and pilot operation in case of ongoing flammable vapor burn inside of the combustion chamber or restricted air flow.
■ Maintenance-Free—No regular cleaning of air inlet openings or flame arrestor is required under normal conditions.
■ Sight Window—Offers a view into the combustion chamber to observe the operation of the pilot and burner.
■ Factory-Installed Hydrojet® Total Performance System—Cold water inlet sediment reducing device helps prevent sediment build-up in tank. Increases first hour delivery of hot water while minimizing temperature build-up in tank.
■ Vitraglas® Lining—Bradford White tanks are lined with an exclusively engineered enamel formula that provides superior tank protection from the highly corrosive effects of hot water. This formula (Vitraglas®) is fused to the steel surface by firing at a temperature of over 1600°F (871°C).
■ Non-CFC Foam Insulation—Covers the sides and top of tank, reducing the amount of heat loss. This results in less energy consumption, improved operation efficiencies, and jacket rigidity.
■ Pedestal Base.
■ Water Connections—3⁄4" NPT factory installed true dielectric fittings.
■ Factory-Installed Heat Traps.
■ Protective Magnesium Anode Rod.
■ 3x4 “Snap Lock” Draft Diverter—Allows either 3" or 4" vent connections with inputs of 40,000 BTU/Hr or less. Over 40,000 BTU/Hr. has the 4" “Snap Lock” Draft Diverter.
■ T&P Relief Valve—Installed.
■ Low Restriction Brass Drain Valve—Durable tamper-proof design.
