Sea Recovery Corporation (California, USA) announced the launch of a new watermaker. Aqua Matic is fitted with comprehensive one touch automation virtually eliminating the need for an operator. It requires no pressure adjustment and self-regulates to any feed water condition. The user-friendly touch screen displays pictorial images of all operating conditions, which can also be viewed with the optional remote touch screen controller from any location on the boat. All system readings can be selected to display either U.S. Standard or Metric measurements. Automatic shut down can be set for time duration or for a specified water production amount.
The Aqua Matic High Pressure Radial Axial Plunger Pump is engineered for 8,000 hours of operation before any maintenance is required. It is water lubricated, so no oil changes are necessary. It also has 5 plungers rather than the conventional 3 and is radial axial driven rather than the conventional 90-degree offset camshaft, making it run smoothly without pulsations or vibration. This radial axial plunger pump is manufactured with a highly corrosion and erosion resistant Duplex material, which provides greater protection than 316 SS (stainless steel). With Sea Recovery's exclusive Noise Reduction Chamber, the Aqua Matic is also surprisingly quiet, according to the company. The Aqua Matic Modular is designed for separate system component placement if there is insufficient space for the compact model.
