The Raypak gas heater
has a polyester-coated, non-corrosive cabinet that is more durable than solvent-
borne and waterborne-coated metal cabinets. Every piece of sheet metal goes
through a 7-stage wash system, making certain the powder paint has a perfect
bond. Underneath the tough, yet beautiful finish you will find galvanized metal that
offers superior rust prevention and years of durable service
No need for fans to combat drafting
problems under normal conditions. This heater is designed to draft naturally in
outdoor installations with its exclusive low-profile design. It is so thoughtfully and
carefully designed it actually protects itself from the things that tend to stifle
ordinary pool and spa heaters. It delivers uninterrupted heating performance
regardless of falling leaves, wind, airborne debris, rain, downdrafts, updrafts, sleet,
stains from harming your pool or spa’s surface, giving you years of trouble-free
All- Copper-Fin-Tube Heat Exchanger
The fin tubes of the heat exchanger are each made from a single
piece of extruded copper. This integral-fin design allows maximum heat transfer to
be attained and maintained. Raypak also uses thick stainless steel tube sheets for
robust construction and rust free operation.
The 156 is available standard with Raypak’s propriety AFT digital control.
This control handles all the safety functions of the heater as well as the electronic
ignition and flame supervision. State of the art diagnostic reporting and fault
recording. This is the same control we use in our bigger gas pool heaters. Only the
best will do for the model 156. The electronic ignition system requires external
power (120VAC or 240VAC) and generates a pilot only when there is a call for
heat. Units come with a 3 foot, 3 prong power cord.
2” Water Connections
Supplied with every Raypak 156 heater is a set
of 2" flange connections to make your installation secure and effortless.
The Raypak 156 comes standard
with a built in water bypass so it can handle different GPM’s without having to
adjust your flow rates manually. The bypass also helps keep a constant engineered
flow through the tubes to help reduce condensation caused by cold water.
Every burner tray is built to last, from
the stainless steel burner deck to the aluminized metals used in the heat sensitive
areas. Innovative design allows for the easy removal of the tray for servicing.
A ceramic fiber combustion box keeps
your heater running efficiently while keeping the outside jacket cool. By using this
space-age material the heater won't retain residual heat after it is turned off,
allowing it to be installed without the use of costly metal heat sinks.
Energy-smart Raypak heaters
consistently achieve the highest efficiency ratings. They meet or exceed all federal
and state standards
Available for natural gas or propane.
Please note the Raypak model 156 is not designed to meet the emissions
regulations in areas requiring Low NOx levels.
