    Cyclone® Xi Named Top Product of 2008

    Ashland City, TN (Monday, 30 March 2009)

    After its appearance in PM Engineer (PME) in January 2008, A. O. Smith’s Cyclone® Xi tied with one other product in generating more comments from the readers than any of the other products featured in the trade publication last year. As a result of this reader-response, the Cyclone Xi commercial water heater has been named the Top Product of 2008 in the April 2009 issue of PME.

    The A. O. Smith Cyclone Xi is the industry’s most technologically advanced commercial water heater. The Cyclone Xi family takes water heating performance to the highest levels, with up to 96 percent thermal efficiency and inputs up to 500,000 BTU. The Cyclone Xi provides outstanding hot water output with dramatic savings on operating costs compared to units with standard 80 percent efficiency.

    The Cyclone Xi also features intelligent controls, making it the “smartest” water heater in the industry. The advanced controls with LCD screen—an exclusive A. O. Smith design— provide detailed status information, allow precise temperature control, and include built-in diagnostics.

    A. O. Smith’s leading-edge engineering delivers conventional power-vent or sealed combustion power direct-vent versatility, low-nitrous oxide (NOx) emissions, and space-saving characteristics—helping make it the readers’ choice for the Top Product of 2008. PM Engineer is the magazine of choice for those involved in the design and specification of plumbing, piping, hydronic/radiant heating and fire protection systems. It is also the only non-association magazine exclusively covering the design and specification of products and systems for the “wet side” of the industry.
