PolyTuf Textured Powder Coating
The Ruud gas heater has a polyester-coated, non-corrosive cabinet that
is more durable than solventborne- and waterborne-coated metal cabinets.
Every piece of sheet metal goes through a 7-stage wash system, making
certain the powder paint has a perfect bond. Underneath the tough, yet
beautiful finish you will find galvanized metal that offers superior
rust prevention and years of durable
No need for fans to combat drafting problems. This heater is designed to draft
naturally in outdoor installations with its exclusive low-profile
design. It is so thoughtfully and carefully designed it actually
protects itself from the things that tend to stifle ordinary pool and
spa heaters. It delivers uninterrupted heating performance regardless of
falling leaves, wind, airborne debris, rain, downdrafts,
updrafts, sleet, snow, etc.
Polymer headers prevent rust stains from harming your pool’s surface, giving you
years of trouble-free swimming pleasure
All-Copper-Fin-Tube Heat Exchanger
The fin tubes of the heat exchanger are each made from a single piece of
extruded copper. This integral-fin design allows maximum heat transfer
to be attained and maintained. Cupro-nickel is also available as an
Stainless Steel Tube Sheet
Stainless steel tube sheets are used on all Ruud gas heaters. This allows for a
completely nonferrous waterway, leaving your pool truly rust-free
CPVC 2" Water Connections
Standard with every Ruud is a set of 2" slip-fit CPVC water connections to make your installation secure and effortless
The Unitherm Governor helps reduce condensation from low inlet water
temperatures. It automatically regulates the water flow to help keep the water
temperature in the heat exchanger above 105°F. Both water temperature and
water flow rate are controlled to eliminate condensation, sooting, and scale
build-up that can shorten heater life
High Flow Rates
The Ruud gas heater comes with an automatic bypass built into the header.
You'll find that the heater is capable of handling water flow at a rate up to 125 gpm
Every burner tray is built to last, from the stainless steel burners to
the aluminized metal used in the heat sensitive areas. Innovative design
allows for the easy removal of the tray and burners for servicing
A ceramic fiber combustion box keeps your heater running efficiently
while keeping the outside jacket cool. By using this space-age material
the heater won't retain residual heat after it is turned off, allowing
it to be installed without the use of costly metal heat sinks.
Energy-smart Ruud heaters consistently achieve the highest efficiency ratings. They exceed all federal and state standards.
