Ariston has introduced the new Pro1 Eco range of electric storage water heaters. Available in 50, 80, and 100 litre capacities, the units feature a display that allows for easy operation, with simple temperature setting and control for advanced performance.
The products are suitable for use throughout a variety of light commercial and domestic applications, including large kitchens, public washrooms and healthcare environments.
The Pro1 Eco range takes advantage of Ariston’s specialist WaterPlus technology, which keeps any incoming cold water at the bottom of the tank, ensuring it does not immediately mix with the stored hot water. This results in up to 16% more hot water being available.
The energy efficiency credentials of the electric storage water heaters are enhanced by Ariston’s ‘ECO EVO’ function – an electronic control with automatic learning software, which enables users to achieve energy savings of up to 14%; that’s equivalent to running an A+ rated fridge-freezer for approximately a year. The new products also achieve an ErP ‘B’ rating across the range.
Units also boast Ariston’s renowned anti-legionella function. Once a month, the Pro1 Eco automatically increases the water temperature up to 65°C, in order to eliminate the risk of legionella bacteria developing. This feature ensures the product is ideal for use in applications such as hospitals, schools and care homes.
Another key feature of the Pro1 Eco is Ariston’s Titanshield technology for optimal tank protection. This sees the inner surface of the tank enamelled with a layer of titanium, an anti-corrosion and rust-resistant material, which prevents the surface from corroding – even when in contact with warm water. The titanium’s natural properties are boosted by the action of a large magnesium anode that stops the oxidation reactions on the tank’s inner surface, helping to prolong the life of the water heater.
The Pro1 Eco also benefits from an Absolute Safety System, including ‘Anti-Overheating’, ‘Anti-Freezing’ and ‘Dry Heating Self-Diagnosis’ functions, which protect the unit in case of energy or water failures. This is in addition to precise electronic thermostatic control, as well as the ‘T-MAX’ function that provides a temperature boost in the event of additional hot water being required.
Commenting on the new electric storage water heaters, Alex Boweren, Product Manager at Ariston, said: “The Pro1 Eco range doesn’t just look great, thanks to its modern ‘Ariston Wave’ styling, it also benefits from a wealth of energy saving features. Each unit learn from user’s behaviour to reduce fuel bills, while ensuring there is always more than enough hot water available. Plus, every product has been checked and tested for quality, resulting in greater levels of reliability and durability.”
Ariston’s Pro1 Eco range is KIWA approved and all units are supplied with an unvented kit and a 5-year manufacturer’s warranty as standard.
