The QuikWater natural gas-fired direct-contact Water Heater Model 3500, rated at 3.8 million British thermal units per hour (MMBtu/hr), when operated at 48 percent, 73 percent, or 95 percent load, has oxides of nitrogen emissions no greater than 7.7 parts per million volume, measured on a dry basis (ppmvd), corrected to 3 percent oxygen and carbon monoxide emissions no greater than 10.2 ppmvd, corrected to 3 percent oxygen when the equipment is operated and maintained, in accordance with the QuikWater Installation, Operation, and Maintenance manual for this water heater.

Model 5000

The QuikWater natural gas-fired direct-contact Water Heater Model 5000, rated at 5.0 million British thermal units per hour (MMBtu/hr), when operated at 50 percent, 66 percent, or 95 percent load, has oxides of nitrogen emissions no greater than 7.1 parts per million volume, measured on a dry basis (ppmvd), corrected to 3 percent oxygen and carbon monoxide emissions no greater than 12.1 ppmvd, corrected to 3 percent oxygen when the equipment is operated and maintained, in accordance with the QuikWater Installation, Operation, and Maintenance manual for this water heater.

Technology Description:

Direct-contact water heating technology does not use tubes to isolate hot combustion gases from the water to be heated. The exhaust gases are allowed to come into direct-contact with water in a totally non-pressurized environment so that all heating occurs at atmospheric conditions.

Technology Application:

Direct contact water heaters can be used in almost any application that has a need for large (sometimes not so large) quantities of hot water. There are three general classifications of water usage. These groups are:

  1. Single Pass Application

  2. Open Loop Recirculation Systems

  3. Special Applications
