instantaneous-type water heater

instantaneous-type water heater
A heater in which there is an exceedingly rapid increase in water temperature as the water flows through tubes surrounding an electric heating coil; best suited for applications requiring a continuous flow of hot water. Must be used with care when the demand is low because accurate temperature control at low flow rates usually is poor.
