Features & Benefits:

• The tighter the commercial retrofit, the more you will appreciate how the Universal’s compact size and multiple water connections simplify installations. Choose from 80% thermal efficiency models that range from 98,000-399,900 Btu/h and have maximum temperature setting of 180 degrees Fahrenheit.

Space Saver Design:

• The short heights and narrow jacket diameters, plus the top, front and rear water inlets/outlets offer the ultimate in installation flexibility.

System Sentinel™ LED Diagnostic System:

• Our exclusive diagnostic system, with glowing LED lights, verifies system operation sequence by sequence.

Patented Technology:

• Universal’s proprietary steel formulation, patented multi-flue design, combined with two coats of porcelain enamel, results in a superior heat exchanger design.

Stainless Steel Burners:

• Precision burners, raised port design, are formed from high chromium stainless steel. Each burner assembly slidesout like a drawer for quick inspection and maintenance.

Low Profile Automatic Flue Damper:

• Low profile damper minimizes overall product height. Heavy duty vent hood supports are designed to withstand the rigors of installation. Full-port, Full-flow Drain Valve Factory installed brass drain valve allows for faster draining and servicing.

Direct Spark-to-Pilot Ignition System:

• Energy saving ignition that ignites pilot only when there is a call for heat.

Altitude Certifications:

• Up to 5,000 feet for natural gas and 2,000 feet for LP; with high altitude certification kit, up to 8,000 feet.

Patented Anode Rods:
