April 30, 2018

ASHLAND CITY, Tenn. (Apr. 30, 2018) – A. O. Smith, a leading water heater manufacturer, has enhanced and expanded its popular commercial-grade ProLine® family with three specialty electric water heaters for low-demand, point-of-use applications, such as office lavatories, handwashing stations, emergency stations, RVs and more.

The ProLine Specialty Point-of-Use Electric Water Heater series includes 2.5-, 4- and 6-gallon models. Each is equipped with a single low-watt density copper heating element and durable tamper-resistant brass drain valve.

The 2.5- and 4-gallon models come with a standard 110/120V cord set with three-prong plug and wall-mounting bracket for easy installation. The 6-gallon model requires hard-wiring. It features side-mounted plumbing and electrical connections, with optional top-mounted water connections for field conversion.

“Our ProLine Specialty Electric Water Heater family covers a wider range of point-of-use applications with fewer models, enabling distributors and contractors to provide unmatched value for end-users,” said David Chisolm, vice president of marketing at A. O. Smith. “The compact design of our Point-of-Use series is good for creating extra counter space and providing hot water and temperature control in remote locations.”

The ProLine Specialty Electric Water Heater models feature a glass-coated tank and aluminum-anode rod for protection against corrosion. It features a 6-year limited tank and parts warranty.
