It was manufactured in 2010 and has had only one owner, who traded it in for
a new one.
It has an energy-saving fully-modulated PowerFlame burner rated at
5640 MMBTU / HR input and designed to generate 4907 MMBTU / HR output.
Currently set up to run on gas, it has a combination burner and could easily
be converted to run on diesel.
To avoid problems from corrosion, it has a stainless steel expansion tank instead
of the standard carbon steel tank.
The service manager at CEI thought firebox looked good, and the electrical system and burner
appear to be in good condition.
We were told that the heater was operating OK when it was taken out of service.
It is equipped with an annunciator.
Other than cosmetic damage which would not affect operation, such as the scrapes
and dents on the skin, the only flaws we know of are:
• approximately 15% (22 of 155?) heat tubes in the heat exchanger are plugged, so
the heater will probably not operate at full capacity unless the heat exchanger is rebuilt.
• the electrical panel box needs to be re-attached to the frame (broken weld).
• the igniter may need to be re-installed or replaced.
It will need a gas regulator (not included) if it is to run on gas.
