Direct immersion heating element WH
Direct immersion heating element water heaters comprise two ranges: Sirocco and Galion. The tank is protected from corrosion by a magnesium anode. Sirocco is fitted with a sheathed heating element. It is the standard range. Galion has an ohmic resistance and thus makes use of O’PRO technology.
Discover the range:
Sheathed heating element:
The sheathed heating element is a copper or stainless steel heating element directly immersed in water. It has outstanding performances and its heating filaments are protected to prevent any short circuit.
The magnesium anode is located in the centre of the enamelled tank and provides excellent protection against corrosion; this anode is consumed more or less rapidly according to the quality/acidity of the water.
Ohmic resistance (O'PRO technology):
The ohmic resistance is a passive electronic anti-corrosion device. It balances out the electric potentials of the tank and the sheathed heating element. The yield and life of the anode (magnesium anode) is increased and the protection against corrosion is improved.The O'PRO technology therefore ensures that the water heater has better protection and a longer life.
