Featherweight Thermoplastic Specific Questions

The heating elements available for The Featherweight electric unit are 3800, 4500 and 6000W with additional configurations coming soon.
The ETC 160 Controller is used on electric units and is an energy saving device to optimize water heater operations which results in a lower consumption of energy. The controller provides the user with the ability to control the operation of the unit.
A Vaughn Featherweight Thermoplastic tank is a seamless water heater using no anode rod, requiring no maintenance, is immune to water quality variations and tolerates higher temperatures and pressures than a glass lined tank. Very often a glass-lined tank may have defects in the glaze which is why they require anode rods that must be maintained on a regular basis. Glass-lined tanks do require service calls and operating at higher temperatures may void the warranties.
The Vaughn Featherweight line of water heaters and storage tanks uses a proprietary technology to fuse a polybutene inner liner with a polybutylene and fiberglass structural outer layer at the molecular level to create a lightweight, monolithic composite vessel with seamless construction.
