How to Choose a RayPak Heater

RayPak gas-fired heaters come in different configuration designed to meet specific heating application:

Digital Electronic: Uses electricity to generate ignition, heater is wired to a 110V or 220 V electrical source.
Or
Millivolt Ignition: Uses a continuous pilot light to generate ignition, does not require electrical source

 

Do I need Digital Electronic Ignition?
Most Residential and almost all commercial users use Digital Electronic version of RayPak heater because of ease of maintenance, simplicity of control operations and environmental regulation

The RayPak Digital Electronic Ignition heaters are the most commonly installed heaters for both residential and commercial customers. They easy to operate with accurate temperature setting digital controls, can be remotely controlled using pool automation systems. only generates a pilot when there is a call for heat. Keeping the sensors active requires electrical power, so power must be wired to the unit. They are energy efficient, you only use fuel when there is a call for heat. Electrical source makes sure ignition source can not be extinguished.

 

Do I need a Millivolt Heater?
If you do not have an electrical source to wire to the heater and do not need to control the heater remotely you can used Millivolt pool heater. You can not use Millivolt heaters if you're in Low NOx areas.

Millivolt pool heaters are designed to be stand-alone with no electrical wiring required and has a constant burning pilot light, sitting just below a small generator. This generator uses the heat of the pilot flame to generate small amounts of power (milli-voltage, or thousands of a volt). This trickle of power is then used to operate the rest of the system.

 

Do I need Low NOx heater?
Some parts of the USA like Southern California and Texas also require that ALL pool heaters (both residential and commercial) meet the SCAQMD Low NOx emission standard. Low NOx is an emission standard that ensures pool heaters and boilers meet very low levels of Nitrogen Oxide (NOx) emission levels required by clean air regulations.
Raypak's Low Emissions units use combustion control to minimize levels of nitrogen oxides (NOx). The units meet emissions standards in all Low NOx areas, from Los Angeles (SCAQMD Rule 1146.2 certified) through the San Joaquin Valley (SJAPCD Rule 4308), and any other areas applying the stringent SCAQMD standard.

 

Do I need ASME heater?
Most commercial (public pool) operators are required to use ASME (American Society of Mechanical Engineers) certified commercial heaters. Because of this requirement, commercial pool operators are restricted to the use of Digital Electronic ASME heaters only.

 

What is a Cupro-Nickel Heater?
Cupro-Nickel heaters have a heavy-duty heat exchanger that made of Cupro-Nickel instead of just copper. The advantage is that Cupro-Nickel is less susceptible to chemical corrosion due to pH imbalance and can also be used with salt water pools. Regular copper heater exchanger can be easily damaged by high pH levels and salt in the water.

ASME Copper Fin tube - (Optional)    
The Raypak Digital ASME gas heater is equipped with .062" wall integral copper finned tubes. This tubing is approximately 50% larger in wall thickness than standard tubing, providing additional resistance to wear from chemical corrosion. The Raypak Digital heater is also available in an optional ASME version. Raypak has inspectors on-site daily performing certifications for our pool heater and commercial boiler production that may require ASME. Being in the boiler business for over 50 yearstruly ,akes Raypak the leader for your commercial needs. Why ASME? Most local codes require that public pools, pools that are in condominiums, appartments, or other commercial applications, be ASME certified. ASME stands for American Society of Mechanical Engineers, a non-profit group which sets many industrial and manufacturing standards. A pool heater that is made to ASME standard must perform to a set of specifications as determined by ASME, specifically in relation to the operating water pressure the application can handle. Each and every ASME heat exchanger that goes into RAypak heater is certified by a state inspector to make sure it complies with ASME codes for pool heaters.

Cupro-Nickel Fin Tube - (Optional)    
Raypak heaters are available with an optional cupro-nickel fin tube heat exchanger for added protection against aggressive water chemistry, which has been known to attack copper heat exchangers and cause premature failure. Cupro-nickel offers superior tolerance to bad water chemistry and increases erosion protection, thanks to a harder surface and wall that is approximately 50% thicker than our standard copper fin tube. When you're unsure of your ability to maintain the pool or spa water chemistry, a cupro-nickel heat exchanger is a cost-effective way to protect against premature failure.
