Instantaneous Water HeatersBack to Article Index...
Welcome to the State of the Art...
Life without the luxury of hot water is almost unthinkable in this day and age.
There is nothing more refreshing than an invigorating shower to overcome the tiredness of an early morning, and nothing is more relaxing than a long hot bath.
For over 80 years STIEBEL ELTRON has been synonymous with reliability, high quality and modern technology for making life more comfortable. We believe it is important for water heating products to be easy to use and install. Through our research and development we have set the pace, introducing appliances that use less water and less energy.
One of the most significant developments in the past few years has been the introduction of the first fully electronic instantaneous water heater. Modern microelectronics allows this product to control the temperature of your water with a high degree of accuracy, which results in savings on both electricity and water usage. For example, if you only want a cupful of water it will only use that exact amount of electricity, to heat that cupful you require. No waste of water or power, it does the thinking for you, saving you time and money. Or if you want to re-heat pre-heated water i.e. solar, it will do that to.
The NEW DHE...SL fully electronic instantaneous water heater is a real star for your bathroom, because its wide range of functions ensures that it has the perfect program for everybody. It keeps the water temperature precisely to the set level to ensure the water does not suddenly go cold or very hot due to a pressure drop. It also offers every conceivable convenience, and can be programmed to suit individual needs: Precise temperature settings, infinitely adjustable from 20 - 60°C. Two temperature settings can be programmed into memory, once set....and it does not forget...the DHE will supply water at your perfect temperature by a touch of a button. A child safety control where the variable temperature is restricted to a minimum of 36°C e.g. for a baby€™s bath. Four wellness shower programs can be selected for alternate showering i.e. promoting circulation, cold prevention, winter stimulation and a summer fitness program.
Environment-friendly ECO function, set at a rate of 8 litres per minute which saves energy and water, ideal for showering. Simple to control the multifunction display controls the flow rate, water consumption, energy consumption or simply the time. If it needs a service, or what the fault is, it will tell you. This is the smartest water heater in the world, and with the problems South Africa have with power and water shortage, you can't get better to help the environment.
Hydraulically controlled instantaneous Water Heater - DHB thermo control The DHB thermo control is unique in the field of hydraulically controlled instantaneous water heaters. The integrated control function smoothes out any pressure fluctuations and keeps the temperature constant, supplying several tap points. The bare-wire heating system that is housed in a pressurized copper cylinder ensures that it is suitable for both soft and hard water areas. With just one hand you can adjust the output in three stages: At little water flow, the half loading (stage 1), switches on i.e. kitchen sinks, wash- basins. When bigger quantities are drawn off i.e. shower, bath, full load is activated (stage 2). Fine -tuning is then done by using the comfort control knob. The position 2 saves energy and water when showering especially in summer.
