Reverse-osmosis system can purify every source of yacht water including seawater, brackish water, lake water, river water or dockside water
Dometic Marine will showcase its new XTC-ZTC Double-Pass Watermaker at the International Boatbuilders’ Exhibition and Conference (IBEX) from September 15th to 17th in Louisville, Kentucky.
The XTC-ZTC is the first and only fully automatic, integrated double-pass reverse-osmosis system that can purify every source of yacht water, including seawater, brackish water, lake water, river water or dockside water. It is also the first watermaker with mechanical override for full redundancy and peace of mind.
The XTC-ZTC can be operated and monitored remotely, via smartphone, tablet or computer, via the Dometic’s Smart Touch Integrated Intelligence Control software.
The first pass is through the XTC side of the system, which makes potable freshwater from seawater and feeds it to the ZTC system. The second pass is through the ZTC system, which further purifies the freshwater by removing 95-99% of total dissolved solids. The ultra-purified water is then sent to the vessel’s storage tank. If at port, boat owners can also use the ZTC system to purify dockside water before bringing it onboard.
“With the double-pass watermaker, boat owners can enjoy ultra-pure fresh water for drinking, ice-making, cooking and bathing – whether they are out on the ocean or in a marina,” said Paul Hickinbotham, Director EMEA – Sales and Administrations & Commercial Division, Dometic.
“There’s no need to bring bottled water onboard—so you can eliminate that expense and the plastic waste it generates. The XTC-ZTC is ideal for spot-free cleaning of boat interiors, as well as external washdowns, with no need to chamois.”
The ZTC freshwater reverse-osmosis system eliminates 95-99% of all impurities, including hard-water minerals, heavy metals, particles, viruses, cysts, bacteria and radioactive contaminants, to create fresh, clean drinking water. The system removes dissolved solids which leave water spots and are destructive to marine paints, coatings, hardware and other yacht finishes. The pure, softened water means boat finishes last much longer, saving boat owners thousands of dollars.
