Benefits

INTELLI-VENT™ GAS CONTROL VALVE
A state-of-the-art tamper resistant and self-diagnosing electronic gas control valve is installed for more precise water temperature control and easy troubleshooting
Integrated ON/OFF switch
Detailed fault history
Protective PVC tubing over the ignition wires
Serviceable single circuit board

SILICON NITRIDE IGNITOR
Improves efficiency by eliminating the energy used by a standing pilot. The operating life of the ignitor is extended using the gas control’s Intelli-Vent™ technology.

HIGH EFFICIENCY BURNER
Environmentally friendly. More efficient combustion resulting in a reduction of air pollution.

SIGHT GLASS
Provides easy viewing into the combustion chamber to verify the operation of the ignitor and the burner.

HIGH LIMIT TEMPERATURE CUT-OFF SWITCH
In the event of an over-temperature condition, the thermostat will disengage the power from the system..

ROLL-AROUND BASE
Provides easy handling for installer without damaging the floor during installation.

FLAMMABLE VAPOUR SENSOR
Detects the presence of flammable vapours and shuts down the water heater.

BLADE-TYPE BAFFLE
Provides a higher efficiency than regular baffles.

GLASS-LINED INNER TANK
A uniquely formulated blue cobalt glass enriched with zircon is fused to specially treated steel at 1,600°F (871°C) to provide the best coating available against corrosion for many years. The tank is certified at a test pressure of 300 PSI (2,068 kPa) and a working pressure of 150 PSI (1,034 kPa).

HIGH QUALITY MAGNESIUM ANODE
Provides excellent protection against the corrosive effects of water and extends tank life.

3/4" NPT-F SIDE TAPPINGS*
For combination heating applications.

FACTORY INSTALLED 3/4" NPT DI-ELECTRIC NIPPLES
Extend the life of the water heater by providing excellent corrosion protection.

NEW POWERFUL BLOWER ASSEMBLY
No chimney required, simply vent through the roof or an exterior wall. For ease of installation, the power venter is equipped with a ten (10) foot (3 m) electrical cord. In the event of an overtemperature condition, the thermostat will disengage the power from the system

FACTORY INSTALLED T&P RELIEF VALVE
Protects the tank from the damaging effects of excessive temperature and pressure.

INSULATION
A thick uniform blanket of GREENFOAM® eco-friendly insulation keeps the water hotter for longer periods, reduces standby losses and energy costs. GREENFOAM® contains no HCFC’s (hydrochlorofluorocarbons), CFC’s (chlorofluorocarbons) nor VOC’s (volatile organic compounds).

DRAIN VALVE
A high quality and tamper resistant one-piece brass drain valve is installed for easy drainage.

*Applicable on models UG50-62 and UG50-58.
