Answering significant demand from boatbuilders and sailboat owners for a low power, high output watermaker, Fischer Panda UK is introducing the new H20 ECO Series of reverse osmosis water desalination systems.
The next generation Parker Hannifin unit is engineered for small to mid-size sail boats and catamarans that have limited power options, providing reliable production of 400 or 600 gallons per day (GPD) of safe water for drinking and cooking.
H20 ECO features
Incorporating patent pending energy recovery technology, the automatic H2O ECO provides up to 14.2% more power efficiency compared to other leading watermaker brands, drawing just 1 Amp for approximately 3 litres of water production.
The robust units are also extremely quiet and smooth running, requiring minimal maintenance. With fully automated operation, boat owners can install the compact Energy Recovery watermaker into tight spaces because daily access to the unit is not necessary.
It is specifically designed for leisure marine applications and works with AC or DC power, ensuring the watermaker is ideal for boat owners who do not have a generator onboard.
Statement of Fisher Panda Uk
Chris Fower, Sales and Marketing Director, Fischer Panda UK, said:
“We are very excited to offer this revolutionary system developed by the experts at Parker to feature the latest reliable technology. The incredibly low power consumption is very impressive, with relatively few Amps required for an output which will be more than sufficient for most mid-size sailboat owners. Combine the power saving with the unit’s small footprint for adaptable installation, automatic operation and easy maintenance and we have an exceptional watermaker which is the perfect solution for many power conscious OEMs and sailboat owners.
The DC operation gives another level of redundancy for owners who do not have space or the need for a generator. We anticipate huge interest from anyone with limited onboard power looking for the most efficient unit capable of producing potable water from any ocean around the world.”
Low power consumption
Both the H2O ECO models have leading levels of low power consumption. The 12V/24V 400 GPD unit produces 17 gallons / 63 litres per hour (LPH) of potable water at 240 Watts, while, for boaters requiring higher capacity, the 600 GPD version produces 25 gallons / 95 litres per hour at 437 Watts, which equates to about 1 Amp for every 3 litres of water.
The H2O ECO units, measuring 283mm (h) x 487mm (l) x 627mm (w) and weighing 54 to 57kg, feature a completely enclosed, compact unit in a powder coated aluminium frame.
This new series strengthens the range of Sea Recovery, Village Marine and HRO watermakers already offered by complete marine systems specialist Fischer Panda UK, supplied to customers with the back-up of Parker Group’s global support network.
