Sensei N masters hot water flow

Delivering more than 950 litres per hour, this new generation of continuous flow hot water systems is an industry game changer

Rinnai’s newly launched Sensei N Series water heater range will make installation easier, enhance performance and increase levels of serviceability in the continuous flow hot water market, thanks to it’s more compact and improved combustion design.

It’s the first-ever continuous flow hot water heating unit manufactured with stainless steel heat exchangers to be available in the UK and Ireland. This gives a greatly extended working life at optimum performance to each of the four models in the range. Added to this are the Sensei N Series market-leading extended warranties.

The four models are: the N1600i giving 954 litres per hour; the N1600e (external) also giving 954 litres per hour (at 50C); the N1300i giving 775 litres per hour; and the N1300e also giving 775 litres per hour of temperature controlled at 50C. The two 1600s have load profiles of XXL and are water efficiency class A rated, while the 1300s are load profile XL and are also water efficiency class A rated.

All components in the range are designed and manufactured by Rinnai, and this ensures maximum quality and reliability from the industry leader in commercial continuous flow water heating products and systems. Rinnai manufactures over 2 million hot water heating units each year, offering cost savings for installers and end-users. The N Series models are probably the most competitively priced type of their kind currently available to the UK and Irish sector, and they can be purchased from Hamilton Gas Products in Bangor, County Down, Rinnai’s all-Ireland distributor.

All models in the range are low-NOx and benefit from Rinnai’s patented advanced burner technology with a 13-1 turn down ratio – the largest on the market – with extremely quiet operation. Integral controls on the units enable the water heater to achieve high efficiencies because of advanced burner control and high modulation ranges.

In reducing Legionella proliferation, Rinnai has developed additional ‘SMART’ controls for secondary return DHW systems in the form of an advanced temperature control system, which allows for safe running of water at 42C core temperature during the day and 60C overnight.

The Sensei N Series range has been third-party tested at 28 mg/Kwh, making them some of the greenest water heating appliances available. As the units do not incorporate storage, their ‘green credentials’ are further recognised by BREEAM and score additional credits under the building regulations.

Rinnai’s continuous flow heater systems are proving to be more energy efficient than conventional storage systems and are increasingly the experts’ preferred method of hot water provision. Rinnai units easily cater for any size of projects that need high volumes of water at intermittent times of day.
