Rheem Manufacturing Company was established in the mid-1920s when brothers Richard and Donald Rheem acquired a galvanizing plant in San Francisco, California. In the 1930's, Rheem began manufacturing water heaters, and by 1936 had coast to coast distribution. During the 1940s and 1950s, the company increased its product line to include space heating units for homes, oil furnaces and air conditioners.
Rheem Product Advantages:
• Exclusive Rheemglas enamel tank protection against corrosion by coating the inner tank with an exclusive rheemglas and fused with solid steel at 870 C. The result is a smooth, tough glass-like lining that effectively resists the corrosive attack of hot water chemicals and ensures a longer life span on Rheem heaters. Tank is designed and tested to withstand 2000kpa hydrostatic test pressure for pressure of 1000kpa. • UL Approve combined temperature and pressure relief safety valve (TPRV) provides protection against excessive water pressure (Pre-set at 0.98mpa). The TPRV allows tank to be manually drained off to facilitate servicing. • Adjustable thermostat with over temperature protection is a safety device that automatically and safely cuts off the power in the event the preset temperature is exceeded. Thus prevents scalding by hot water. Thermostat conserves electricity by cutting-off power supply to the heater once it has reached the preset temperature. • Incoloy sheathed immersion heating element promotes longer, more efficient performance. Efficient heat transferring design reduces sediments built-up in tank. • Anode rod protects the inner tank corrosion by equalizing aggressive water reaction. Thus extending lifespan of the heaters. • CFC free polyurethane insulation between inner tank and epoxy coated steel jacket provides maximum heat retention and minimize operating after years of service. • Compliance to international requirement IEC 60335-2-21 and U.L 174. Tested and approved by PSB Corporation.
