Instantaneous water heater
Flow heaters from eibabo are a convenient, energy-saving way to heat water. A flow heater only heats water when a tap is opened. Flow heaters usually have a high heat output and are, thus, able to produce hot water continuously. Flow heaters are perfect for decentralized water heating, for example in the kitchen, bathroom, guest toilet and shower. Find information about the different electric and hydraulic appliances at eibabo and locate your optimum water heater! Electric flow heaters are for example perfect if you need hot water fast. Here, a high electric power is required, your electrical installation must be equipped accordingly. Common are flow heaters with a power rating of 18, 21, 24, 27 or even 33 kW, with compact heaters usually having a power rating of 11 or 13.5 kW. In hydraulically controlled flow heaters, the water is heated with up to three heating levels. The water is heated by means of a bare wire heating element which is immersed in the water. Please note that, due to their design, hydraulically controlled flow heaters cannot heat very small amounts of water since a minimum flow is required to turn on the heating element. The advantages of hydraulically controlled flow heaters are - in addition to the higher efficiency and the shorter response and, thus, heating time - a significant reduction in calcification of the appliance. With electronically controlled flow heaters, you set the desired water temperature at the device. It might not be necessary to add cold water. The advantages of these flow heaters are easy and convenient operation, as well as improved efficiency compared with hydraulic heaters. Another type of flow heaters is small water heaters, appliances with an output of 3.5 to 6.5 kW. These small water heaters are mainly used to supply single taps and have only a small hot water output. These devices are suitable for applications where small amounts of hot water with a lower temperature are needed.
