Residential Storage Tank AST Models
Bradford White is pleased to announce the introduction of our new Residential AST Storage Tanks. The AST tanks are available in four sizes: 40, 50, 80, and 119 gallons. The old Aero AST storage tanks are now obsolete, which includes the 30, 70, and 115-gallon capacity models.
The AST Storage Tank has an adjustable surface mounted thermostat enabling hot water to be stored at a constant temperature ready for use during peak demand periods. All of the AST models are protected from the corrosive effects of hot water with our exclusive Vitraglas® lining. The Hydrojet® Total Performance System is also standard with all AST models along with 2 inches of Non-CFC foam insulation completely covering the side and top of the tank.
The ¾" Brass Drain valve on the AST models come equipped with a boiler return for applications utilizing hydronic heating systems.
The AST connections (Outlet, Boiler Supply, Boiler Return) for the 40, 50, and 80 gallon models are ¾", and the 119 gallon model has a 1" outlet, 1" Boiler Supply, and ¾" Boiler Return. A Circulator and Temperature Pressure Relief valve are not included with the AST Storage Tanks. We do recommend the use of a stainless steel or a bronze circulating pump and will be offering two circulating pumps (Part# 006-BC4- ½" sweat connections, Part # 006-HBT4- ¾" NPT connections) as optional service parts.
A six-year limited tank and parts warranty are standard for all AST models.
The specification sheets for the AST models have been distributed and are available for order. If you have any questions please contact the Product Management Department at 1-800-523-2931.
