Hydro One EcoHeater uses heating component that is made of non-metal based silicon composite material with lower power consumption rating that was first invented in Germany. It is non-electricity conductive material for much lower risk of electrocution and could perform at higher efficiency in water heating application.
The heating component has proven its application and widely used in many challenging industries such as automotive, medical and semi-conductor due to its ability to generate heat rapidly, efficiently and high reliability under harsh environments. It also features other technical advantages of:
- Long life span with high temperature strength of up to 1200 deg C and 80 bar pressure & outstanding thermal shock resistance.
- Anti-scaling character with superior chemical resistance & oxidation proof coating
- Superior thermal efficiency allowing huge savings in energy consumption.
Adapting this proven heating technology into domestic household water heating application has made Hydro One EcoHeater to bring unparalleled advantages over conventional storage water heater or boiler system.
Its energy efficiency is so high that its heating component can evenbe energised by DC current, famously known as “DC Water Heater” among users.
Thanks to its most unique non-metal Silicone-based heating component, Hydro One EcoHeater enhances the safety factor while operates at much lower power consumption of only 1500 Watts against 3000 Watts as used in convention system, allows user to enjoy hot water with peace of mind while achieving 50% savings in energy cost.
Nevertheless, the heating performance of Hydro One EcoHeater is not compromised at all and it could achieve rapid heating up to 1 deg.C/ minute.
For greater durability, the Silicone-based heating component has high resistance against oxidation and scaling that makes Hydro One Eco Heater could stretch for longer lifespan.
The hot water storage tank of Hydro One EcoHeater is made of 1.5mm thick SS304 Stainless Steel material, which is guaranteed to be rust proof and is protected by an auto-operated safety device of Pressure Relief Valve and fully insulated with 60mm thick of CFC Free High Density Polyurethane (PU) Foam for heat loss prevention.
This makes Hydro One EcoHeater suitable for application of either multi-point or individual hot water supplies as the hot water demand is always well taken care of.
Safety factor of Hydro One EcoHeater has been boosted to another advanced level without using high power metal heating element. The heating component that produce hot water of Hydro One Eco Heater is a non metal component ( silicon based ) with low power rating, which is non-electricity conductive that prevent risk of electrocution when contact with water.
Moreover, Hydro One EcoHeater is equipped with a Triple Safety Protection design of reliable Thermal-Cut-Out Protection in both digital & mechanical thermostat that limits the heating process to cut-off at preset level. First cut-off stage is maximum up to 75 deg.C while the second independent mechanical Thermal-Cut-Out is limiting water temperature not to exceed 90 deg.C. This is a per-requisite to comply with the Safety Regulation of Malaysian Standard MS IEC 60335 (Part 1 & 2). The functionality & safety protection of the product is also tested & certified under the stringent international CB Testing Scheme by SIRIM.
Thirdly, Hydro One EcoHeater also features a mechanical safety device of Pressure Relief Valve that will purge automatically if there is excessive heat & pressure exceeding the permissible level. In fact, SIRM has tested and accredited to verify Hydro One EcoHeater has the working pressure up to 600kPa (6 Bar) with the Test Pressure is stressed to double up to 1200kPa (12 Bar).
