B&G Tank Heaters are 2 pass U-bend heat exchangers.
The B&G Tank and Heater offers many advantages, as it both heats and stores the water in the same unit. It can be operated by passing either steam or hot water through the coil and is an excellent heater for hard water territories. Large capacity in small spaces makes this heater particularly suitable for boiler rooms with low head room.
