The new watermakers technology
The traditional reverse osmosis water makers make use of high pressure pumps to increase the pressure of the seawater up to 50-60 BAR. The high pressure pumps need a great amount of electric energy. For instance, to produce 60 lit/hour of freshwater, are required 1000 – 1200 Watt on average.
Therefore the most part of traditional water makers need an 220 AC electric generator.
Schenker water makers, as alternative to high pressure pumps, make use of a new patented device (Energy Recovery System) that amplifies the pressure supplied by the low pressure pumps, recovers most part of the spent energy, thus enabling very high energy efficiency. The consumed energy is up to 80% lower than conventional system (for instance only 240 watt to produce 60 lit/h). Thanks to this high efficiency, Schenker watermakers can be even DC powered directly from service batteries. As a result no AC generator is needed to install the water maker.
The main advantages of the new technology are:
- Direct power supply from service batteries (12 or 24 VDC) .
- Very low electric consumption ( lower up to 80% vs. the traditional systems)
- Very quiet running and vibration free.
- High reliability
- Wide range available (from 30 to 210 lit/h )
- Excellent value for money.
- Full automatic operation. No adjustment is necessary when running.
The name ZEN represents the values simplicity, lightness and minimalism. In fact, the watermakers of the new ZEN series are very small (only 10 cm high), light and silent. They can be mounted in all possible positions: horizontally or vertically. In order to fully live up to the ZEN philosophy, the initial costs could be minimized due to a sophisticated 3D design process.
“SMALL” Leightweight and affordable, the “SMART” version is the ideal solution for those who need a simple solution to a significant problem. Due to the elongated design through the use of a large, long membrane, this design is often used in sailing yachts. There, they can be installed particularly well in elongated storage spaces, e.g. under the bench in the salon.
The variant “MODULAR” are very compact and space-saving units. A wide range of different performance classes meets all needs. Due to the use of several shorter membranes, a large generating capacity can be achieved in a relatively small space.
