Leading heating and hot water appliance manufacturer, Rinnai, has launched its Sensei N Series water heater range, a decarbonised hot water heating solution.
The new Rinnai Sensei N Series is powered by BioLPG, an eco-friendly fuel source that reduces harmful emissions. It offers a new compact and enhanced combustion design that allows for easier installation, superior operational performance, and ease of serviceability.
The Rinnai Sensei N Series is the first ever continuous flow hot water heating unit manufactured with stainless steel heat exchangers to be available in the UK, giving a greatly extended working life at optimum performance to each of the four models in the range.
BioLPG is a co-product of the biodiesel production process. In the manufacturing process, feedstocks undergo a series of complex treatments. They are combined with hydrogen in a process called hydrogenolysis which separates and purifies their energy content.
During the refining procedure, a variety of waste gases are produced that contain BioLPG. For every tonne of biodiesel, around 50 kg of BioLPG is produced from this gas stream. This co-product is then purified to make it identical to conventional propane.
Key features of the Sensei N Series include a turbo fan, a built-in controller as standard on both internal and external models, cascade cable assembly allowing up to 24 water heaters to be connected and function as one total and complete system, and integrated frost protection to minus 15°C on the internal versions and minus 20°C on the external versions.
When combined, the Rinnai Sensei N Series and BioLPG can contribute directly towards global decarbonisation. In an earlier report conducted by Rinnai, possible savings of 81 per cent on carbon emissions in off-grid sites converting to BioLPG as its main fuel source have been documented and verified.
