Continuous flow – sometimes called ‘Tankless’ – water-heating units are ideal for domestic properties, cafes, pub, restaurants, offices, shops, hairdressers, small commercial units, caravan parks and leisure facilities. Continuous flow water heaters are proven to be more cost efficient than traditional systems.
Small businesses and domestic properties require high volumes of water at intermittent times of the day – delivered at accurate temperatures for optimum user comfort and safety.
Sudden changes in water temperature, causing cold showers or scalding hot baths are a thing of the past with Rinnai’s Infinity 16i water heaters. Unlike other systems available, the water temperature set is the one that is delivered. So, if a user is showering at, say 42°C, and someone turns on a tap elsewhere in the property, the temperature will not vary.
With the Rinnai Infinity units, running out of hot water is a thing of the past, as the water is drawn straight from the mains, as and when needed. As the units are IPx4 rated they can be mounted in zone 2 within bathrooms.
The Rinnai Infinity 16i measures 675 x 370 x 103mm and weighs in at 18kg. The room sealed unit has a temperature range of 35°C to 60°C with direct electronic ignition. Gas consumption ranges between 4.7kW-34.9kW for Natural Gas and 4.9kW-36.8kW when using propane. Hot water delivery flow is an impressive 16ltr max flow. Nominal operation pressure is 1-7 bar and it uses a 230V AC 50Hz 1ph power supply with an electrical consumption of 68W.
The Infinity 11i is 29mm deeper, weighs 2kg less at 16kg; consumes 6.10kW-21.60kW of natural gas (it is not compatible with propane gas) and has an 11 litres per minute maximum flow.
Meanwhile the Rinnai Infinity 17e unit has the added advantage in that it is externally mounted. This feature gives greater flexibility at the design stage and can offer an alternative solution where flue runs are problematic or internal space is not available.
The 17e has full frost protection. A range of external ancillary items including pipe cover box and security cage are available where necessary.
Capable of flow rates of up to 510 litres per hour at a 50°C rise, the 17e is suitable for multiple applications and can be specified for use with Natural Gas or propane.
