Rising above all others with Dawson Company.

You may have seen a new Behemoth rising above the tall buildings in down town Los Angeles; this is Wilshire Grand, the tallest building built west of the Mississippi river to date.

This 1,099 foot tall 73 story building is owned by Korean Airlines and is a 900 room hotel along with retail shops and restaurants.

The job of designing and supplying the Domestic water heaters went to Pan Pacific Mechanical out of Fountain Valley Ca. Engineer Dominic Pacone needed to make sure that the best system was used to provide the most efficient hot water delivery for this tall building.

Many venders wanted to get their Products on this project, however after reviewing what Aerco Corporation had to offer, Dawson Company was selected to provide the water heaters.

Dominic said it was the efficiency ( up to 99% with 30-1 turndown) and the small footprint( door way sized due to the tank less design) of the seven Aerco 1350 MBTU Innovation’s that determined this as the best system for the job.

The job of designing and supplying the domestic water heaters went to Pan Pacific Mechanical out of Fountain Valley, California. Vice President Ryan Cavanaugh and Project Manager Mark Carothers Together with their Engineer Dominic Pacone needed to make sure that the best system was used to provide the most efficient hot water delivery for this tall building.

The AERCO Innovation Water Heater utilizes state-of-the-art technology to easily meet highly precise demanding commercial and industrial hot water requirements in a compact and reliable condensing design. The durable, high efficient, helical fire tube heat exchanger is time tested to be impervious to thermal stress for an extended life. The all stainless steel construction maximizes longevity in the condensing application and the corrugated tubes increase effective heat transfer surface area for optimal thermal efficiencies up to 99%. Enhanced waterside flow distribution maintains constant minimum velocities across the heat exchanger; this keeps solids in suspension and greatly reduces scale dropout to maintain high-efficiency performance and long life.

The advanced control system incorporates dynamic feed-forward sensing for precise modulation of its high turndown air/fuel delivery system. These controls fire the unit to accurately match load requirements and produce a tight hot water outlet temperature control. With a  30:1 turndown, the AERCO Innovation takes maximum advantage of its thermal efficiency, eliminating wasted fuel and reducing operating costs.
