Models review

There are several categories of Titan water heaters you can choose from, all of them using the tankless system to heat the water, smaller recommended for the warmer region and larger for colder.

  • Titan SCR2
  • Titan SCR3
  • Titan SCR4
  • Titan Laser

Titan-SCR2

One of the latest electric and tankless water heaters from this company is the Titan-SCR2 model that is comprised of several models (sizes), where the N-120 is the most powerful and with the highest water flow rate. It features the microprocessor to monitor the usage and automatically adjusts its power, which results in better comfort - due to the reduced fluctuation of hot water temperature. At the same time, it optimizes itself so it can use less power, which means more savings for you.

The TEMPLOGIC technology is what makes this model to be one of the most advanced tankless water heaters available.

Titan SCR3

Titan water heater SCR3 is the electric tankless unit with the great performance, efficiency, and reliability. It is represented by only one model, N-160.

SCR3 uses the latest technology called QUAD-4 and features an improved electronic proportional control system with the power modulation for energy saving heating.

The SCR3 is equipped with the digital display located at the front of the unit and it provides great info to the user; real-time usage, temperature, power and the efficiency.

It provides better temperature control during any water flow, even in modern bathroom fixtures. The best results with a high efficiency and accuracy are obtained when the unit is operating on 208 V and with the modern flow. It also performs well when the standard voltage of 220 V is used.

With only 9 pounds, and small size of 7" x 10" x 3", it can be installed virtually anywhere, but mostly at the point of service. There are two power settings available for N-160 model; 12 kW when it operates on 208 V and 55 Amps, and 16 kW when it works on 220 V and 66 Amps. In both cases, Titan tankless water heater SCR3 provides a maximum of 4 gpm supplying enough hot water from medium to large size homes and apartments.

Titan SCR4

If you need a water heater with the larger capacity or higher temperature rise (if you live in colder northern US states) Titan SCR4 is a solution for you, as it supplies up to 5 gpm.

SCR4 is a little heavier and larger that SCR3, it weighs 12-13 pounds and also come in a small and compact size of 11,5” x 10,5” x 3".

Titan water heaters, SCR4, are available as N-180 and N-210 models, and by using 240 V with 75 and 88 Amps they provide 18 and 21 kW of heating power and up to 5 GPM of hot water - perfect for larger houses in colder areas.

Titan SCR4 is great for heating water in regions with the hard water, or water with a higher percentage of mineral deposits. Modulation is what brings savings and an increased comfort, so when the voltage reduces, the heating power also drops. SCR4 models are also available in stainless steel casing which provides additional protection, especially in the harsh environment.

Titan Instant Electronic Water Heater - Laser

Titan water heater Laser model is the energy efficient electric unit that utilizes a shielded Incoloy heating element, a reliable and durable material, also very resistant to hard water and sediment buildup.

It uses the Linear Electronic Temperature Control, the component that controls the temperature of the hot water and how to adjust the output temperature. With three models available it can cover from 0-8.5 kW of heating power and is available for the export market only.

Summary

Titan water heaters are perfect for new installation and new homes, or as a substitution for large tank type units in existing homes, even commercial applications. They are designed for a wide range of residential and commercial applications that can provide almost instant water heating, on demand and in endless supply, but with the limited water flow rate.

With the savings of over 60% and environmentally-friendly design, Titan products are the great choice for budget-friendly families and homeowners looking for the advanced features. Built simple and with fewer components, Titan tankless products are not expensive, they do not have high operating cost, they use all the energy just for water heating; are almost maintenance free, and do not rupture since there is no storage tank.

Hot water is always fresh due to on-demand operation and endless supply. The most popular model, such as the SCR2 utilize the digital microprocessor providing great efficiency and temperature stability. Depending on the model size, Titan can be used in small and larger homes, apartments, offices, hospitals, restaurants, boats...
