Lockinvar® Introduces Copper-Pak® Commercial Gas Water Heater



LEBANON, Tenn. (October 14, 2004) - Lochinvar Corp. is merging two of its most advanced technologies into a single product line-Copper-Pak®. The new design teams a high-efficiency Copper-Fin® water heater with a dedicated Lock-Temp(TM) hot water storage tank. The advantages of a Copper-Pak system over a traditional tank-type water heater include reduced operating cost, smaller equipment size, and easier installation.

"Integrating the Copper-Fin with the Lock-Temp storage tank has produced some astounding results," says Bill Vallett, Jr., president of Lochinvar. "Our new Copper-Pak system is able to outperform and outlast the competition. Plus, Copper-Pak is less expensive to own and operate."

The newly upgraded Copper-Fin atmospheric series water heater operates at a remarkable 82 percent thermal efficiency. With Copper-Pak, the water heater is mounted on top of the storage tank in a unique design that reduces the system footprint. All piping is completed at the factory so the unit ships in one box, ready for installation. Also, the Copper-Pak is only half the weight of comparable water heaters, thanks to Lochinvar's Loch-Heat(TM) ceramic insulation tiles.

Copper-Pak comes equipped with a factory-installed, all-bronze 1/6 HP circulating pump to ensure scale-free heater performance. In tank-type water heaters, lime scale build-up can reduce efficiency by as much as 44 percent in just four years.

The Lock-Temp "Energy Saver" tank is available in 85- and 100-gallon capacities. Unlike conventional tank-type water heaters, Copper-Pak is designed to allow the tank to be replaced separately from the water heater. Even the heat exchanger is designed to slide-out independently for easy access. With only a half-gallon of hot water in the heat exchanger at any given time, stand-by losses are extremely low in the Copper-Pak. Furthermore, Copper-Pak does not require a flue damper to meet stand-by loss requirements.

Another Copper-Pak advantage is its amazing durability. Its average useful life is 13 years-more than twice that of a standard tank-type water heater. Copper-Pak features a 5-year limited warranty on its Lock-Temp tank, as well as a 3-year limited warranty on the heat exchanger.

Additional standard features of the Copper-Pak system include:
o Built-in draft diverter contained entirely within the heavy gauge galvanized steel jacket assembly and requiring no additional external draft hood devices.
o Stainless steel burners operating on a horizontal plane.
o One-piece, glass-lined, cast-iron heaters without bolts, gaskets, or "O" rings.
o Manual and automatic reset high limit
