Aqueous instant hot water for specifiers and home owners
Australian innovator AusJ imports is introducing its latest 10L Aqueous MK2 hot water system to provide near instant hot water water for homes, commercial and recreational users.
A finalist in the Australian 2017 Sustainability Awards and Watermark accredited, the 10L Aqueous MK2 unit reduces wastage of both water and energy by locating the heater under the sink, close to the point of use.
‘Domestic and commercial building owners throughout Australia and the Asia-Pacific typically waste a lot of time, water and energy when turning on the hot tap and waiting for hot water to arrive from remotely located big tanks, which can be five or more metres away. This is wasteful of energy and water – not to mention frustrating when users must wait ages to serve up water needed for regular daily tasks such as washing and cooking,” said AusJ managing director Jay King.
Hot water can account for a third of average household energy consumption, with each of us using about 150 litres of water a day, much of it for tasks requiring warm or hot water.
“It doesn’t make much sense in terms of energy conservation to be heating a lot of water that will go cold in the pipes waiting for use – and then there is the wastage of many litres of high quality drinking water that is typically flushed down the drain,” says King.
Innovative features of the Aqueous MK2 water heater include:
- durable outer case with service and inspection points
- SPCC steel and enamel tanks
- single weld line for extended lilfe
- polyurethane insulation for heat retention
- thermal cutout and run-dry protection
- combination pressure relief valve and non-return valve
- incoloy 840 heating element for rapid heating and enerrgy efficiency
- floor or wall-mounted operation
“The Aqueous MK2 can act as a supplementary heater to reduce lag time while the main heater kicks in. Our aim is make instantly available hot water at the kitchen sink. It makes sense for householders and building and facility managers to use this sort of technology to save water and energy.”
