Pulsar announces water heater using microwaves
November 22, 2005

Pulsar Advanced Technologies has announced ... the Vulcanus MK4, a water heater USING microwave technology to heat water on demand.

This technology with super-heating capabilities will drastically cut energy costs and totally eliminate the need to store hot water. The Vulcanus MK4 is making its world premier at Construct Canada in Toronto between Nov. 30 and Dec. 2.

The tankless system uses microwave technology to heat water on demand, saving energy and providing an endless supply of hot water for residential and commercial usage. The technology is designed to eliminate the deadly Legionella Pneumophila, since water will not stagnate, as it does with conventional hot water heaters.

Powered by electricity and unaffected by the volatile gas markets, the Vulcanus MK4 can heat water from 35 degrees Fahrenheit to 140 degrees Fahrenheit in seconds and can source multiple applications at once: showers, dishwasher, sink usages and more.

The Vulcanus MK4 is the size of a stereo speaker with a sleek modern look, making it ideal for condos and apartments, while powerful enough to serve the needs of any size family.

That's interesting. In Japan I think gas is the only water heating system used. There are no hot water tanks in Japanese houses. (Where would you put them, anyway???) We have hot water on demand anytime we want. The bath is separate from the kitchen system - the bath has its own heater. The shower system is connected to the kitchen, though, so we have to be careful not to use hot water in the kitchen when someone is using the shower (but using cold water is fine).

It's one of those little luxuries you get used to very quickly. I would hate to go back to a tank system.
