Side Arm Heat Exchanger - 38" Stainless Steel 3/4" & 3/4"NPT 23,000 Btu

AB Sidearm Heat Exchangers have a compact, lightweight design that allows for a quick and easy installation. Designed with natural thermosiphon heating technology, this heat exchanger is enhanced with fins to allow for higher heat transfer efficiency and to help reduce cross-contamination for potable water. This fin-enhanced design, which is 5-8 times bigger than the traditional bare tube design, produces both significant turbulence on the system side and faster heating at a greater capacity. This type of heat exchanger is recommended for smaller households of about 1-3 people or households with lower hot water usage.
