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

New XTVR Cable

We are excited to launch the new nVent RAYCHEM XTVR, reloaded with nVent’s innovative High Power Retention technology (HPR). The XTV product family has been protecting industrial processes for more than 35 years and today, we continue that legacy with XTVR. This new heating cable is as easy to flex, strip and install, and brings additional benefits in performance and longevity.

Product Overview

XTVR Battery

Main benefits:

  • Optimized design for high-temperature applications

XTVR offers a maximum operating temperature of 150°C / 302°F and T3/T2 unconditional T-ratings, very long circuit lengths, and more power variants: four at 120V and seven at 230V/240V. As a result, XTVR designs closely match heat loss, optimize power requirements, and reduce system costs.

  • Easy to strip, flex and install

XTVR maintains its fiber construction, making cable stripping easy and simple, and you can install it with existing nVent RAYCHEM connection kits. Click here to see how fast and easy you can strip an XTVR heating cable.

  • High Power Retention and Long Life

We reloaded the XTV, using nVent’s breakthrough HPR technology and new polymer materials that were developed for the HTV heating cable. The new XTVR heating cable has minimum 95% power retention after 10 years at maximum operating temperature, and a design life of 30 years or more.

Now the nVent RAYCHEM HTV family goes up to 28W/ft or 92W/m

The launch of HTV with High Power Retention (HPR) technology was a great success. Now, we added an additional model to the family with a 28 W/ft or 92 W/m heating cable. This provides design flexibility with a higher wattage cable to meet certain application demands.
