Hot Water Temperature Maintenance

In large commercial buildings a single pipe hot water temperature maintenance system provides immediate hot water at the tap, and helps you save energy and water. Find out how the single pipe HWAT approach improves on recirculation systems.

nVent RAYCHEM hot water temperature maintenance systems offer comfort and an intelligent way to supply instant hot water at the tap.

Why install a hot water maintenance system?Hot-Water-Temperature-Maintenance

  • Long, complex pipe networks are energy inefficient
  • Waiting for water from the tap at the desired temperature level can waste lots of valuable drinking water
  • Legionella prevention and decontamination in long and ramified pipe systems are much harder to execute

These are typical issues in buildings including

  • hotels
  • healthcare buildings & hospitals
  • office buildings
  • sport buildings
  • schools
  • prisons
  • apartment blocks

The system consists of RAYCHEM self-regulating cables and the HWAT-ECO control unit:

  • Engineered for direct application on hot water pipes, the RAYCHEM system does not require return pipes, valves or pumps
  • Self-regulating heating cable is positioned on the pipe and compensating for any temperature loss in hot water and maintaining the desired temperature along the pipe
  • Parallel circuit construction of the heating cable allows design and installation flexibility
  • The control unit manages the power consumption of the system in an efficient way to get energy savings
