HJ Cooper Stainless Steel Mains Pressure Hot Water Cylinders

Peace of mind
This range of mains pressure electric hot water cylinders comes with a 20 year limited warranty on the inner cylinder*. You won't find a longer warranty on any other electric hot water cylinder in New Zealand! Whats more, it's backed by Rinnai after sales support.

Energy efficient
• Curved element design ensures 98% of water is heated.
• Cold water inlet dip tubes deliver water to the bottom of the tank to avoid mixing of water
• No cylinder wraps required, all HJ Cooper cylinders meet NZ MEPS

MEPS = Minimum Energy Performance Standard
 
Future proof your home
Connect to a hot water heat pump or solar system with the extra eco inlet connection**, either now or in the future.

Install as a low pressure system then connect, without replacing your cylinder, to the luxury of mains pressure when you are ready.

Convenience
• Lightweight, stainless steel makes transport and installation are a breeze
• Low maintenance, no sacrificial anode to maintain
• Future proofed, auto reset thermostat option means these cylinders can be solar and hot water heat pump ready

Innovative design
The 250 and 300 L cylinders have the option of a second element making recovery times quicker and making it less likely you'll run out of hot water.

* Please see the owner and installer guide, in the 'Technical' tab, for full warranty details
** Excludes 135 L cylinder
 

Suitable for:
• Indoor installations
• Mains and low pressure systems
• Domestic and commercial water heating applications
• Left or right hand plumbing connections
• Connection to open loop solar or hot water heat pump systems

Not suitable as a pool or spa heater.

Water quality
HJ Cooper water heaters are manufactured to suit most New Zealand council water supplies. However some water supplies can have a detrimental effect on the water heater, its operation and life expectancy.

Water supplies with a high level of calcium carbonate (hard water) can cause scaling on hot surfaces. We recommend a water temperature of no more than 65 °C to minimise scale build-up. Scale reducing or water softening devices should be considered in hard water areas. The unit is not guaranteed against damage due to scaling.

General properties of duplex stainless steel 2304
Duplex 2304 is a 23% chromium, 4% nickel, molybdenum-free duplex stainless steel whose structure is a balance of ferritic and austenitic. It has general corrosion resistance similar or better than Alloys 304L and 316L but with yield strength nearly double that of austenitic stainless steels. Its duplex microstructure and low nickel and high chromium contents also allows Duplex 2304 to demonstrate improved stress corrosion resistant properties compared to 304 and 316. It is typically suitable for all applications in the -58 °F to 572 °F
(-50 °C to 300 °C) temperature range and is designed to feature high mechanical strength, good weldability, good corrosion resistance, high resistance to stress corrosion cracking, good machinability, low thermal expansion, good fatigue properties, high thermal conductivity, and easy fabrication.
