The Atmospheric Vent FVIR Defender Safety System® Models Feature:
■ 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
-- 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 a exclusively engineered
enamel formula that provides superior 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 1600ºF.
■ 1" 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”
■ T&P Relief Valve—Included.
■ Low Restriction Brass Drain Valve—Durable tamper proof design
