The ICON System™ is a next-generation gas control valve. It will be standard equipment on almost all of the manufacturer’s residential and light-duty commercial products. The gas valve has an advanced temperature control system; the microprocessor constantly monitors and controls burner operation to maintain consistent and accurate water-temperature levels. The proprietary algorithms provide enhanced first-hour delivery ratings and tighter temperature differentials. According to the manufacturer, the high-strength advanced polymer composite thermowell provides isolation between electronic temperature sensor and surrounding water, so there’s no need to drain the tank when removing or replacing the gas valve.
