Hot Water Solutions


How, When, and Where You Need It

As a result of the 2020 pandemic, we see customers investing more in solutions for their facility’s hot water needs ensuring safe, reliable, and efficient systems that meet a variety of sanitary and process requirements. Relcon is aware of the consumption of limited resources such as water and energy. We are committed to working with our vendors to provide energy efficient equipment and alternative methods to conserve our valuable resources.

Our customers’ requests cover a vast range of applications in the commercial, industrial, and residential markets. Relcon in partnership with Raychem HWAT, Hubbell Water Heaters, and OGI Quickwater are your partners for hot water solutions.

Raychem HWAT System

The Raychem HWAT system utilizes self-regulating heat trace cable installed directly to domestic hot water supply piping, to maintain the system temperature as provided by your water heater. By using advanced electronic controls and easy to install connection kits, an HWAT system can reduce time to tap hot water and simplify complex recirculating systems.

Self-Regulating Heat Trace

  • HWAT is a self-regulating heat trace cable that adjusts its heat output accordingly to maintain the desired constant temperature
  • Can be cut to length in the field
  • Designed to be used with ACS-30 or HWAT ECO advanced controllers

ACS-30 and HWAT-ECO Controller

  • Advanced controls calculate the amount of “on” time required to maintain the desired temperature based on Raychem’s advanced algorithm
  • Preconfigured “usage profiles” allow clients to tune the system to meet their water usage needs throughout the day/weeks/months providing energy cost savings
  • Network interface capabilities enable IOT connectivity directly to the users BMS

Efficient Design

  • Eliminates the need for re-circulating systems and excess piping/pumps/valves
  • Constant water temperature throughout entire domestic hot water supply piping
  • Easy to install Rayclic connection kits. Tightening two screws is all it takes
  • Hybrid system of re-circulated header and heat tracing branch lines can provide a solution that is simple yet effective
  • Guaranteed water efficiency by heat tracing to the tap for instant hot water

Pathogen Control Measure (ASHRAE Guideline 12)

  • Legionella species remain dormant below 70°F and can grow and multiply up to 120°F
  • When a building is unoccupied, HWAT system can be utilized to maintain hot-water temperatures at or above 120°F to mitigate the chances of pathogen growth

Key Benefit-Hydrastone Lining

Cement vs Glass Lined

Hydrastone cement lining offers complete coverage of the tank

  • Hydrastone cement lining offers complete coverage of the tank
    • Reduces ownership and operating expenses
      • Longer lifespan
      • Maintenance free benefits
      • Eliminating inspection and replacement costs to maintain anode in glass lined tanks
      • Anode not required for hydrastone cement lined tanks

    If you have a demanding industrial application such as:

    • Pharmaceutical
    • Petro-chemical
    • Water treatment

    Or any commercial applications:

    • Boiler room
    • Kitchens
    • Shower room

We can provide an engineered solution for you or your clients that, “Makes Hot Water Easy!”.
