Mains pressure stainless steel twin coil for wetback and closed loop solar

Overview

Twin coil = running cost savings

Twin coil systems, save money on power in summer using solar water heating through the standard coil, and in winter heat the water by the wetback fire using the thermosiphon coil.

The thermosiphon coil for wetback has the water circulating through a coil inside the cylinder by a thermosiphon effect, i.e. warmer water rises and cooler water falls, creating a natural flow. This means there's no need for a pump to circulate the water, you can still heat your water even if there's a power cut.

- indoor installations only
- mains and low pressure systems
- connection to a wetback fire and closed loop* solar system
- residential and light commercial water heating applications

No suitable as a pool or spa heater, or for underfloor heating.

Water quality
Rinnai cylinders are manufactured to suit most NZ council water supplies. However some supplies can have a detrimental effect on the cylinder, its operation and life expectancy.  Stainless steel cylinders are not suitable for bore or tank water.

* For closed loop solar systems the heat transfer fluid is circulated through the solar collector on the roof where it is heated by the sun. The heated transfer fluid then passes through the cylinder coil, which acts like a very large element to heat the water.

Twin coil lower element
For new builds and renovations connecting to a wetback fire and a closed loop solar system, where the homeowner will have full electric boost when there is not enough heat from the supplementary heating sources.

Twin coil dual element
For new builds and renovations connecting to a wetback fire and a closed loop solar system, where the homeowner wants faster recovery times, and to reduce the risk of running out of hot water. Cylinder will have higher running costs. 

Twin coil upper element
For new builds and renovations connecting to a wetback fire and closed loop solar system, where the homeowner relies heavily on heat from the supplementary heating sources. Upper element is only used to quickly heat water in the top of the cylinder.

FAQs

In all Rinnai cylinder instructions, we mandate the use of a drip tray. This is because all cylinders have the potential to leak water and cause extensive damage.

Our instructions state:
The Rinnai warranty does not cover any consequential loss from leaks to the cylinder, so it’s important a suitably drained drip tray/catch pan is fitted as per AS/NZ 3500.4:2015 5.4 and G12/AS1 6.11.3.

Like-for-like replacements are a grey area as most installers will only replace the cylinder to the same configuration as the cylinder that is being replaced. In these instances, Rinnai still maintains that a drip tray should be fitted. This protects the homeowner and the building from any future problems should a leak occur. If a drip tray cannot be fitted, then look at other possible options such as:

• Locating the cylinder outside
• Using a continuous flow gas hot water heater
* As the world’s largest gas appliance manufacturer, Rinnai is widely regarded as the industry leader.
* Rinnai products are known throughout the world for their superior quality, safety, technology and sophisticated control systems, all factories are ISO 9001 and/or ISO 14001 certified.
* We have an established 40 year history in New Zealand.
* Rinnai are happy to advise that we now have an IANZ accredited Test Lab for MEPS testing on Hot Water Cylinders. The lab uses the latest in test equipment and can test all type of Hot Water Cylinders for MEPS heat loss testing.
We realise there's a lot of information out there. Water heating is important and it's better to spend the time up front deciding on what you need and what's important. We have an experienced customer service team that can walk you through the process. For those more complicated projects we also have a free specification service.

Installation costs are difficult to provide as every installation is different. Factors such as the length of pipe required , whether you have accessories fitted, how far away you live and choosing an internal or an external unit all influence the overall cost.

If you’re interested in a Rinnai hot water heating solution, we highly recommend you get an installer to come on site and provide a quote. Call our customer service team (0800 746 624) who can provide options for installers in your area.
