Rheem ES50-54-G Commercial 50 Gallon Electric Water Heater

Rheem-Ruud Electric Commercial Water Heaters are suitable for general commercial hot water applications and are also ideal for point-of-use installations. A single unit can be used as a booster heater to satisfy the hot water requirements of commercial dishwashers. A single temperature storage unit, when installed with a mixing valve, will supply two temperatures in food service establishments.

Rheem Water Heaters Heavy Duty Series

Construction Features

  • System Sentinel –
  • immersion thermostat models employ an element diagnostic panel, utilizing light emitting diodes (L.E.D.), corresponding to the number and location of each heating element. This system monitors the on-off function of the electric heating elements.

  • Long life ASME tank design –
  • proprietary steel formulation with high temperature porcelain enamel to maximize corrosion resistance resulting in a superior tank design.

  • LIFEGUARD heating elements –
  • separate screw-in type elements feature a stainless steel outer sheath of INCO-LOY 840, surrounding a Nichrome wire filament, to resist water chemical corrosion and burn-out even in air or sediment…for long element life and long life performance. Elements are directly immersed in the water for maximum recovery efficiency (98%) and are easily changed by simply screwing new ones into the tank. Lifeguard elements feature a three (3) year limited warranty.

  • Full port, full flow brass drain valve
  • Minimal heat loss design –

    85% of the tank surface area on all Rheem-Ruud Commercial Electric products are insulated with 3"" of rigid polyurethane foam insulation providing superior insulating qualities. Unlike other designs, Rheem-Ruud Commercial Electrics can achieve 85% because of the unique compact layout of the heating elements. this results in heat losses less than the energy used by a 100 watt light bulb during a 48 hour standby period

  • Thermostat Staging – On all immersion thermostat models, 24kW and above (18kW for 208V), additional thermostats can be provided so that the maximum element input will not exceed 18kW - 27 kW per step. Temperature differential between steps can be set as desired.
  • Note: Thermostat staging recommended on 81kW models.

  • System Sentinel – all models employ a diagnostic panel utilizing light emitting diodes (L.E.D.), corresponding to the number and location of each heating element. L.E.D.’s are energized when the electric elements are operating. An unlit L.E.D. pinpoints the exact location of a non-functioning element, making element operation diagnosis simple and positive.

The minimum distance to provide adequate clearance for protection of combustible material is 0 inches from jacket and 18 inches from access door. However, additional clearance for accessibility to permit inspection and servicing such as removing heating elements or checking controls must be provided. All models are approved for installation on combustible flooring.
