Product details

AO Smith DRE-80-12KW 80-Gallon Commercial Electric Water Heater, 3 Yr Tank / 1 Pts Warranty

  • Meets the standby loss requirements of the U.S. Department of Energy and current edition of AHRAE/IES 90.1.
  • Gold elements - DRE models ship with the Goldenrod 24K gold plated elements (see element availability chart). Patented Goldenrod elements provide long life and superior scaling resistance. Low watt density means lower surface temperature to minimize scale buildup and more surface to heat water. Goldenrod elements carry a one-year warranty against failure due to lime scale build-up.
  • Glass-lined tank - Three sizes: 50, 80 and 119 gallon capacity. Tank interior is coated with glass specially developed by A. O. Smith for water heater use. Tanks rated at 150 PSI (1034 kPa) working pressure
  • Fusing - Protects all elements, thermostats, and internal wiring circuits against excess current flow. Meets National Electrical Code requirements that non-ASME tanks must have internal fusing when current draw exceeds 48 amps.
  • Standard voltages - 208, 240 and 480V single-phase and three-phase delta. Convertible from three-phase to single-phase (in field) and vice versa. 277V single-phase also available.
  • Terminal block - Factory installed. Just bring the electrical service to the heater and connect to block.
  • Controls - One temperature control (adjustable through a range of 120° to 181°F) and manual reset high temperature cut-off per element. Thermostat step control may be achieved by varying settings on individual temperature controls. Located behind hinged control compartment door for quick, easy access.
  • Surface mounted thermostats
  • Simplified circuitry, color coded for ease of service
  • Two anode rods for maximum corrosion protection
  • Cabinet has bonderized undercoat with baked enamel finish
  • Bottom inlet and top outlet openings
  • Brass drain valve
  • CSA Certified and ASME rated T&P relief valve
  • Single panel control box
  • Foam insulation reduces costly heat loss.
