International Water-Guard (IWG), based in Burnaby, Canada, recently shipped its first T-Series Tankless Water Heater to Associated Air Center, a VIP completion center, to be installed on a Boeing 787.
Having continuous hot water on demand on VIP and VVIP aircraft is essential because of showers, galleys, lavatories and appliances on board. The T-Series line will be offered with flow rates of 0.5 to 4 gallons (1.9-15 liters) per minute, reaches a maximum temperature of 145°F (63°C) and can be easily integrated into the cabin management system.
The T-Series heater is light at less than 20 lbs (9 kg) and will certainly appeal to engineers and completion centers concerned with adding weight to an aircraft and they will take up less space than heated tank systems.
IWG Technologies, Inc. is the public holding company for International Water-Guard Industries Inc., a Canadian aerospace company focused on aircraft potable water treatment, water systems, water heaters and components.
