Rheem has been aggressively pursuing
various paths to offer solutions that build confidence in Rheem
products. Some of these measures include:
1) Improvements in our manufacturing process since
2011. Production coils since 2011 do not exhibit the
susceptibility to formicary corrosion evidenced before.
2) Beginning in early 2013, we will offer tin-plated indoor
3) Rheem is also in the process of designing a new all
aluminum coil. This new design will have several
benefits, which include: being physically identical to
current production coils in size and efficiency, front
facing drain connections, mechanical compression
fittings on the TXV for ease of service, and reduction
in weight for ease of handling and installation. And a big
benefit of this all-aluminum design is that it will have
excellent protection against formicary corrosion.
