By applying the warm water heating tapes you will always have hot water at the tap instantly. By this you avoid unnecessary water use until the comfort water temperature is reached. Additionally you only have to cover the heat loss of one small water pipe, which has only small heat loss.With other system like double walled installation pipes or by circulation you have a higher heat loss or higher costs of insulation, as well as you need more place and time for
the instalation of such systems
Additinal to this use it is also easy for large systems to switch on a legionella decontamination during off-peak times. This is often use at hospitals, senior complexes and day-care center
To be able to withstand also very high temperature in a warm water system, our heating tape are able to withstand 100°C switch off and switch on. By this the risk of dammage is gone. ILM172CT is used as a substitute for circulation pipes. Together with a time switch you can reach a high economic system. Only the time you need warm water, the tapes are switched on.
For the use of ILM312CT as a legionella decontamination you will need a 'legionella-switch', which switch on to 100% power output for the decontamination time and switch down to 55% to only have comfort heating for warm water.
By this you have no danger of scalding.
