Fury series with the Guardian System

rheem gas water heater furyRheem gas water heater from this series is equipped with the Guardian System, which allows maintenance free operation as the air filtration system prevents the arrestor to become clogged.

Arrestor plate is specially designed feature so it can prevent the ignition of the fuel vapor outside of the heater and its gas burning chamber.

Fury models have another safety system that shuts off the gas and air supply if any spill incident occurs. With such a double protection, any fire or burning of sustained vapor in the combustion chamber is prevented.

Another great feature found on all Fury series that saves on gas cost and provides continual efficiency is the patented system that fights sediment build-up, and it is called EverKleen. Cold water enters the tank through the inlet tube or dip tube and makes the turbulence. Special dip tube design allows water flow to become turbulent.

All the models are certified for use up to 6000 feet (2 km) sea level while some are certified up to 10,200 feet.
