Copper Fin Tube - Residential
The Raypak 106 and 156 are built to last by using the highest quality integral copper fin tube available. Copper is well known for its ability to transfer heat efficiently, and is the first choice for pool and spa heat exchanger construction.
Pure copper has stood the test of time as the industry standard for efficiency, quality and product life. Raypak’s copper finned tube is one integral piece of copper with the fins extruded from the tube. Hybrid designs using separate copper fins and cupronickel tubes just can’t stand the test of time. When you choose Raypak, you can rest assured you are making the right choice.
The water flow rate inside the heater is controlled to help eliminate condensation, sooting and scale buildup that can shorten the life of a heater. Raypak engineered a built-in automatic bypass specifically for the 106 and 156 to help prevent condensation, scaling and erosion by balancing the flow going into the heat exchanger. This allows the heaters to operate with a large range of pump sizes without having to make any adjustments to the flow rates.
The Raypak 106 and 156, utilize the latest technology in rust free polymer header design along with an integral copper finned-tube heat exchanger and stainless steel tube sheets. Even the smallest details such as the studs and nuts are made out of stainless steel. The payoff? A heater that will last year after year and can easily be serviced if the need should ever arise.
