Water Heater Features and Innovations from Bradford White Canada

Innovation that Delivers Performance, Reliability and Efficiency.

Bradford White has established a reputation for bringing truly innovative features to the water heater industry. This is a standard by which Bradford White strives to consistently provide better safety, reliability, and performance.

Our mission is to provide our pro and homeowner customers with the most advanced, high-quality, reliable products on the market today.

Hydrojet®
Total Performance System

The Bradford White Hydrojet® Total Performance System is a cold-water delivery tube that reduces sediment buildup and thoroughly mixes incoming water with stored water to reduce thermal stratification.

The secret is a series of flow-altering “jet ports” that create counter-rotation and dynamic turbulence that effectively blasts suspension and prevents its accumulation. The upper “jet ports” direct the flow outward to begin the dynamic mixing action. The lower “jet ports” direct the flow inward to increase pressure and turbulence.

Sediment buildup is the main killer of water heater life. But Bradford White’s Hydrojet® system reduces sediment to lengthen the life of the water heater, improve first hour rating, provide more hot water for the money, improve overall operating efficiency, and deliver more hot water faster than other water heaters.

The Hydrojet® Total Performance System is an innovation that separates Bradford White from the competition. Hydrojet® is unequaled in its effectiveness. And, it’s standard equipment on all Bradford White top connect residential water heaters.

VitraglasTank Lining

Vitraglas® is an exclusive enamel tank lining that provides unsurpassed protection from the highly corrosive effects of hot water. Vitraglas® keeps harmful and corrosive elements from reaching the steel of the tank and other components.

Vitraglas® is uniquely formulated and applied to the water heater tank, head, base, and flue tube, and is then bonded to the steel surface by firing at a temperature of over 1600°F. An automatic spray application system maintains consistent thickness to produce a superior, durable, corrosion-resistant, and long-lasting tank lining. Vitraglas’® unique compound structure allows the lining to expand and contract with the steel tank.

Bradford White created Vitraglas® and effectively set the standard for glass-lining protection. Since then, we’ve constantly improved both the chemistry and application of this exclusive formula to create the perfect tank lining. Today it’s included as standard equipment on nearly all Bradford White tank water heaters.

The Defender Safety System®

For many homeowners, the water heater is located in a utility room in the basement or in the garage right where flammable liquids might be stored. Bradford White’s Defender Safety System® with FVIR (Flammable Vapor Ignition Resistant) Technology defends your property and belongings from potential combustion of these fumes by keeping any flames inside the water heater.

The heart of Bradford White’s Defender Safety System® is the patented flame arrestor design with ScreenLok® Technology. If flammable vapors enter this uniquely designed system and are ignited, any flames present in the chamber will be prevented from traveling backwards through the flame arrestor plate and outside of the water heater, providing added protection for you and your home.

Since its inception, the Defender Safety System® has proven to be one of the most successful, reliable, and maintenance-free flame arrestor technologies in the industry.

Eco-Defender Safety System®

The Eco-Defender Safety System® features a different burner to maintain its Low NOx emissions while resisting the ignition of flammable vapors that can occur outside the water heater.

With a state-of-the-art radiant burner and an advanced control system, Eco-Defender models emit 75% less NOx emissions than standard models while maintaining optimal combustion efficiencies and performance. Our exclusive Eco-Defender Safety System® protects against external vapor ignition ensuring safe operation and peace of mind.

Infiniti Tankless® SRT

Infiniti Tankless® is the SMARTER way to go tankless, using advanced technology for better performance.  All models feature SRT™ (Scale Reduction Technology) that utilizes multiple components to reduce scale build-up, which is known to result in poor performance, premature component or product failure, and ultimately additional maintenance costs for the consumer.

A vertical modulation burner helps to reduce hot spots in the heat exchanger that can attract sediment buildup. Internal turbulators help lower the surface temperature of the high-quality copper primary heat exchanger; both help to reduce sediment buildup on both the inside and outside of the water tube. Even the secondary heat exchanger uses smooth tube construction to reduce internal and external sediment build-up.

SRTTM enables an Infiniti Tankless® to operate at peak performance longer and helps to reduce the consumer’s maintenance costs.

STEADISET Technology

Tankless water heaters have always faced the challenge of temperature stability. While a tank water heater has 40 gallons or more of perfectly hot water, a tankless water heater has to generate that hot water as needed – and must adapt quickly to changes in demand. This traditionally has been overcome by adding an external buffer tank and circulator which increases operating costs and lowers efficiency.

The Infiniti® K Series uses a very different approach: Steadiset™ Technology. Instead of adding water volume, the Infiniti® K uses the mass of the existing water already contained within the heat exchanger to create a surplus of water that’s 10 to 20 degrees hotter than the desired set point. This hotter water is then blended with cold water using a dynamic mixing valve to achieve the desired output temperature.

So instead of needing additional external equipment like conventional tankless, the Infiniti® K Series uses SteadiSet™ Technology to respond instantly to changes in demand and keep water temperatures stable – reducing operating costs and increasing efficiency.
