Carry on caravanning with Rinnai – ideal for all commercial sites

  • 20 Jun 2018

Rinnai, the UK leader in hot water heating units and systems for all commercial and residential sites, has recently completed an installation at a caravan park and holiday multi-activity centre.

Rinnai HDC 1500e external unit, fuelled by LPG, was installed at a site in rural Herefordshire, comprising part of regular upgrades on the complex.

The hot water was for a very specific function – the Disabled, Laundry and Dog Wash rooms providing.

Space and configuration constraints meant the Rinnai 1500e unit was selected and installed neatly on an external façade and accessorized with a pipe cover box to prevent any vandalism and offer weather protection.

As this is a pre-manufactured unit, no additional flue or ancillaries required, apart from standard pipe and electrical connections. The installation was easily completed in less than a day.

LPG is increasingly popular for caravan sites, as it provides extra flexibility on fuel and very good cost savings for the owners and operators.

LPG is one of the cleanest off grid energy sources and, as such, is the ideal fuel for water heating applications in rural areas that are off-grid.

Chris Goggin, Rinnai’s Operations Director, says Rinnai Infinity continuous flow water heaters combined with LPG gives end users, such as caravan site owners, for example, an ‘unrivalled energy efficient and environmentally friendly solution’, with all units delivered to site being ‘LPG-enabled.’

Rinnai, the UK’s leading manufacturer of the ErP A-rated Infinity range of continuous flow condensing gas-fired water heaters, supplies the best energy efficient range of low-NoX water heating units currently on the market.

One of the site concerns was Legionella proliferation; so therefore, a ‘SMART’ controls for the secondary return DHW systems in the form of an advanced temperature control system which allows for safe running of water at 42°C core temperature during the day and 60°C at a time when the building is closed was used. By the time the building reopens, core temperature is 42°C for safe use.

The company’s integrated scale control system is an innovative solution and comes in the form of an LC (lime check) code on the display of the controller, which deals with age-old industry problem concerning hot water delivery of lime scale build-up.

Almost all water-fed appliances, including plate heat exchangers, boilers and water heaters will accumulate scale deposits when used within hard water areas over time.

Ultimately, persistent use with hard water may shorten the lifespan of conventional water heating appliances and systems. To safeguard against this, Rinnai units continually self-monitor for lime scale deposits around the heat exchanger.
