Instantaneous

What is a continuous gas water heater and how does it work?

An instantaneous water heater heats water only while is flows through the appliances. That water is used immediately, not stored. (please view image to the right) The push rod rising from the water section pushes the rod in the gas section up, thus overcoming the return spring and opening the gas valve. Gas flows through the burner, where it ignites off a permanent pilot. Flame. The main burner heats the water as it flows through the heating body. When the water outlet is closed (e.g. turning shower off), the flow through the water section stops. The return spring now pushes the gas valve back down on to its seating, shutting off the main burner.

Instant water heaters can supply hot water indefinitely, but at a limited rate of flow (VERY IMPORTNT TO CHECK WHEN UPGRADING FROM A HWC). If more than one outlet is opened, the rate of flow of hot water from each outlet is reduced. ON the other hand, a minimum flow rate is needed before the burner will ignite. Euro Plumbing will check that appliances with small flow rates such as dishwashers, draw enough water to operate the water heater.

Mains pressure STORAGE water heaters can provide high rates of flow to several outlets at once. However, any storage system can run out of hot water! Where storage water heating is undesirable or unsuitable, instantaneous heating is recommended. For example, showers or hot cleansing processes may only need a limited flow rate but may exhaust a stored supply of hot water. We have complied a few “general” specials below, these can be customised to suit your unique requirements.

We often get asked about how long a gas bottle will last when running a gas appliance. Using the calculation below you can work this out yourself.

The following information is taken from Rinnai

euro_plumbing_lpg

LPG gas bottle energy calculation

1 kg of LPG gas contains 50.4 MJ of energy

1 kW = 3.6 MJ

This means that a 45 kg LPG gas bottle has:

45 kg x 50.4 MJ = 2268 MJ

This works for the different bottle sizes, here are the most common:

9 kg = 453.6 MJ

45 kg = 2268 MJ

twin pack = 4536 MJ (two 45 kg bottles)

Calculating how long an LPG bottle will last

To work out how many hours an LPG gas bottle will last, you need to divide the energy (MJ) by the total MJ input of your appliance (in MJ/h).

For example, here are some approximate running times for a few of Rinnai's heating products:

Rinnai Portable Convector: Avenger = 2268 ÷ 25 (MJ input of appliance on high) = 91 hours (approximately)

Rinnai Energy saver®: 309FT = 2268 ÷ 13 (MJ input of appliance on high) = 174 hours (approximately)

Rinnai Gas Fireplace: Arriva = 2268 ÷ 31.5 (MJ input of appliance on high) = 72 hours (approximately)

The input figures used in the above calculation are when the appliance is running on high. It is rare that you will run the appliance on high for a long period of time, so the above usage calculation will be the worst case scenario. A continuous flow water heater has a slightly different calculation as usage is normally intermittent. You can still use the calculation, you just need to determine how long the unit will be used each day, i.e. the shower is used three times each day for approximately five minutes, there are two loads of washing done each day, and there is intermittent use of the kitchen tap—equates to 30 minutes of continued use each day.

Approximate running time based on the above example:

Rinnai Infinity VT26 = 2268 ÷ 199 (MJ input of appliance on high) = 11 hours (approximately) = 660 minutes ÷ 30 minutes equates to 22 days per 45 kg bottle
