DW+ Indirect Fired Double-Wall Water Heater

The AERCO DW+ water heating package is designed to address the requirements of commercial, potable water heating systems. A responsive, load tracking control system maintains accurate hot water temperatures under the diversified load patterns of commercial applications. AERCOs integral load monitoring system and high turn down control valve maintain +/- 4F accuracy without the need for storage tanks, blending valves, pumps or other temperature averaging components. The DW+ is constructed of double-wall tubing two distinct copper tube walls separate the potable water from the heat transfer medium via a vented air gap. This continuous air path is atmospherically vented through a clearly labeled, visible, leak detection port. The construction of the AERCO DW+ model meets all double-wall heat exchanger requirements as set forth by BOCA (National Plumbing Code), IAPMO (Uniform Plumbing Code), and NAPHCC (National Standard Plumbing Code) the three national associations which reference double-wall requirements. The baffle-free, vertical U-bend tube bundle constitutes the lowest stressed U-tube heat exchanger design available for domestic water heating. Generously spaced U-tubes mounted in a vertical vessel provide for extremely low water side velocities a factor which greatly increases heat exchanger life by reducing erosion. A low Energy Density designed into the heat exchanger reduces susceptibility to thermal stress, providing for a longer, more maintenance free existence as a domestic water heater. All water wetted parts are copper of copper alloy materials -- the best selection for longevity in even the most aggressive of potable water supplies. With steam or boiler water in the tubes and domestic water in the shell, this SemiInstantaneous design is compatible with low or high steam pressures or Low Temperature Boiler Water (LTBW). A footprint of less than 4 ft2 and doorway size provide broad installation flexibility. Tight temperature control, high quality, reliability, low maintenance and longevity make the AERCO DW+ a most logical choice for all commercial, domestic water heating installations.
