A. O. Smith has launched the Cyclone LV, a large-volume commercial water heater that rounds out the company’s Cyclone family of high-efficiency gas products. A. O. Smith created the LV model to serve the needs of facilities that require large storage for jobs with critical load requirements. The model’s modulating process adjusts the burner’s firing rate to a specific demand, which allows for performance of up to 96 percent thermal efficiency while lowering operating costs. Available in 220- and 250-gallon capacities, these units allow engineers to specify two Cyclone LV units where they would have previously needed four Cyclone Mxi units. Cyclone LV products feature advanced electronic control with built-in diagnostics and free iCOMM remote monitoring. LV models’ lightweight design eases maneuverability and installation.
