Rheem Commpak delivers turn-key hot water
Rheem’s commercial division has launched the new Commpak gas instantaneous hot
water system range that delivers continuous hot water for a variety of
applications like hotels, apartments, hospitals and sporting clubs.
The Rheem Commpak is an instantaneous hot water system with no tank, making
it compact and easy to install in either a wall or floor mount design. It
maintains mains pressure performance due to the pressure pump within the system.
David Micallef, Technical Marketing Manager, Rheem Commercial said, “the
product was developed in response to feedback we had from the market.
Increasingly there is limited space available in developments for larger
systems. We also made sure that the product was pre-engineered and assembled to
minimise time on site.”
The Commpak system includes a bank of up to six instantaneous hot water heaters
that are pre-engineered and assembled by Rheem prior to delivery. The system can
be installed by a plumber and electrician who simply need to connect it to the
water and gas lines, and the power supply.
Rheem Commpak has a five star energy rating heating source making it energy
efficient and able to heat water up to 80°C which is required for applications
like laundries and hospitals.
For applications that require a tailor-made system, Rheem has also introduced
the Commpak Plus that utilises two or more pumps, temperature sensors and
controls. It is pre-engineered to project specific requirements and assembled by
Rheem to make it easy to install on site. A building management system interface
is also included making trouble-shooting simple.
The new range also includes the Multipak staged supply system that is ideal
for intermittent use such as sporting clubs. The system includes up to six
instantaneous gas water heaters. Ignition of each water heater is staged in
response to flow demands, only heating the water as it is required, reducing
It is also pre-engineered and assembled in the factory so can be easily
installed by a plumber. Typically there will be three connections required
rather than up to 39 if all the connections were required to be fitted on site.
The Multipak system is available approved for delivery of water less than
50°C so no tempering valve is required, in accordance with Australian Standards
The Rheem Commpak range has a five year warranty on the heat exchanger and
one year warranty on parts and labour.
