Microprocessor Controlled Thermostat
The Raypak Digital gas heater comes with a microprocessor based thermostat control. This control allows you to set your pool or spa temperature precisely at your favorite setting just by pressing an up or down temperature control button. The Digital display gives you a constant read out of your pool water temperature. Just set it, and forget it! Truly simple.
Troubleshooting a gas heater has never been easier. The Raypak Digital has on-board diagnostic controls that let the user and the service professional know what is going on with the heater at all times. In the event that you would ever have a problem with the heater, the digital display will show where the problem is in the control circuit. It's like having a service technician built into every heater!
The Raypak Digital is compatible with most major pool control and remote systems on the market today. Any two-wire or three-wire remote can connect to the Raypak Digital and be integrated into the pool control system of your choice.
Raypak Digital heaters come standard with intermittent spark ignition pilot safety controls. What this means is that the pilot only comes on when there is a call for heat. This is a more energy efficient way to control your heater's gas usage by not having a standing pilot. Raypak has been using the same reliable electronic pilot ignition design for over 20 years.
Built-in Wind Resistant Design
The Raypak Digital has the best outdoor design in the market today. With over 50 years in designing and building gas heaters, Raypak has put all that experience into its newest heater design. No need for fans to combat drafting problems, the Raypak Digital was designed for 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: falling leaves, wind, airborne debris, rain, downdrafts, updrafts, sleet, snow, etc. In fact it is so efficiently designed it ensures uninterrupted heating performance regardless of all but the most extreme weather conditions. Built Raypak tough. Built to last.
Smart Cabinet Design
One look will tell you that the Raypak Digital is different! The look is contemporary. The design is advanced. And inside and out it's engineered to last. The attractive forest green and charcoal gray panels complement the latest pool and spa equipment designs. Raypak's original "pagoda top" design will keep the heater operating even in extreme wind conditions and downdrafts.
Polytuff Powder Coating
The Raypak Digital has a polyester coated, non-corrosive cabinet that is more durable than solventborne and waterborne coated metal cabinets. Every piece of sheet metal that gets powder coated goes through a 7-stage wash system making certain the powder paint has a perfect bond. Underneath the tough and beautiful finish you will find galvanized metal that offers superior rust prevention and years of durable service.
Most local codes require that public pools, pools that are in condominiums, apartments, or other commercial applications, be ASME certified. ASME stands for American Society of Mechanical Engineers, a non-profit group which sets many industrial and manufacturing standards. A pool heater that is made to ASME standards must perform to a set of specifications as determined by ASME, specifically in relation to the operating water pressure the appliance can handle. Each and every ASME heat exchanger that goes into a Raypak heater is certified by a state inspector to make sure it complies with all ASME codes for pool heaters. Raypak has state inspectors on-site daily performing certifications for their pool heater and commercial boiler production that may require ASME. Being in the boiler business for over 50 years truly makes Raypak the leader for your commercial needs.
Cast Iron Glass-lined Headers
Raypak has applied its years of commercial boiler experience to the design of the cast iron glass-lined header. A metal header design allows for the higher working pressures required by ASME. Only after the material meets the stress analysis and metal composition tests is it approved for use in an ASME unit.
ASME Copper Fin Tube
The Raypak Digital ASME gas heater is equipped with .062" wall integral copper finned tubes. This tubing is approximately 50% larger in wall thickness than standard tubing, providing additional resistance to wear from chemical corrosion.
CPVC 2" Water Connections
Standard with every Raypak Digital is a set of 2" slip fit CPVC water connections to make your installation secure and effortless.
Standard on all Raypak Digital models is Raypak's Unitherm Governor, which helps reduce condensation from low inlet water temperatures. The Unitherm Governor 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 buildup that can shorten heater life.
High Flow Rates
No need to worry about large pumps or high flow systems. The Raypak Digital comes with an automatic bypass built into the header. You'll find that the Raypak Digital delivers the industry's lowest pressure drop and highest water flow rate - up to 125 gallons per minute - exceeding the maximum recommended for 2" plumbing systems. More hot water moves through faster and more efficiently.
Efficient? You bet. Energy-smart Raypak heaters consistently achieve the highest efficiency ratings and the Raypak Digital is no exception. It exceeds all federal and state standards.
Every Raypak Digital burner tray is built to last. >From the stainless steel burners to the aluminized metal used in the heat sensitive areas. In the event that anything should happen to your burners they can be quickly and easily serviced. One more reason why the Raypak Digital is made to take the work load year after year.
A ceramic fiber combustion box keeps your Raypak Digital running efficiently and keeps 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.
Raypak is proud to be a ISO 9001 registered manufacturing plant. One more reason why Raypak is number one in the heater industry today.
Every Raypak gas pool heater is plumbed and test fired before it is put in the carton. This ensures that your heater will fire right out of the box and continue to give you years of trouble-free operation.
The Raypak assembly process includes 6 final assembly quality checkpoints that help to ensure that each and every Raypak Digital is built correctly, and built to last.
All of Raypaks products are CSA certified. The Raypak Digital is tested by CSA to the ANSI Z21.56 standard.
Low NOx heaters are required when installing a new Natural Gas heater in Texas, and the following California Counties: Ventura, Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, and San Bernardino. CA and TX residents must purchase the Low NOx model (see separate item listing).
Due to its size, this item must be shipped by freight carrier instead of UPS. If there are other items on your order, they will be sent on the same freight shipment.
