Light Duty Commercial Electric Water Heater
6-119 Gallon Capacity, up to 12 KW, Single Phase and Three Phase Open Delta
The Hubbell Model E water heater incorporates a number of features not found in other conventional heaters which makes it better suited to resist the highly corrosive effects of hot water. The heart of a Hubbell water heater is a superior storage vessel which utilizes a specially formulated Hydrastone cement lining, solid copper-silicon threaded tank openings and a built-in heat trap device, all of which ensure a longer lasting and energy efficient water heater.
When you specify and install a Hubbell Model E, you will have confidence in knowing that the owner will be provided with a long lasting, trouble-free water heater.
Heavy Duty Construction
- Hydrastone cement lining provides long tank life
- Plastic jacket will not rust, scratch or dent eliminating damage and is maintenance free
- No sacrificial anode rod required
- Industry's lowest standby heat loss reduces your operating costs
Model E Water Heater Specifications
Model E: 2" Polyurethane Foam
Model M: 3" Polyurethane Foam
Standard: 5 Year Non Pro-Rated
Optional: 10 Year Non Pro-Rated
The Hubbell tank is all welded heavy steel construction designed for 150 psi working pressure and tested to 300 psi. Each tank is centrifugally lined with 1/2" thick seamless high density Hydrastone cement with guaranteed 100% coverage of all steel surfaces. All tank openings are non-ferrous solid copper-silicon and are resistant to the corrosive effects of hot water.
3/4" combination cold water inlet and drain, with non-corrosive strata flow diffuser which prevents incoming cold water from mixing too rapidly with the hot water in the tank and assures delivery of more hot water - not lukewarm. A 3/4" hot water outlet with a uniquely designed built-in heat trap prevents heated water from radiating through the piping during standby periods.
Copper sheathed immersion heating elements with low watt density for prolonged life - up to 12 KW in 120, 208, 240, 277, 480 volt single phase. An adjustable surface thermostat operates in 110-170°F range.
Integral hi-limit with manual reset button for over-temperature protection is factory set at 190°F.
Upper and lower element configurations are factory wired for non-simultaneous operation.
Highly efficient thick polyurethane foam insulation meets or exceed the requirements of ANSI/ASHRAE/IESNA 90.1-2007 standards for energy efficiency and heat loss.
The exterior protective jacket is constructed from high impact composite material which cannot rust or corrode and does not require painting.

All 3 phase open delta water heaters are supplied with upper and lower heating elements that are wired for simultaneous operation. Due to the unbalanced load of a three phase open delta circuit, the amperage on one leg is higher. Circuit protection should be sized based on the amperage of the highest leg of the open delta (L3).
