The Schenker Watermaker Modular 60 convinces with high-quality manufacturing, low energy consumption as well as with a compact, modular design.
The desalination plant of the Modular product line consists of the watermaker unit (membrane and Energy Recovery System - ERS), the pump unit, the filter units and the control panel (Basic, Digital or Touch). In the main element of the system, the watermaker unit, the membranes are easily accessible and mounted on a robust, box-shaped housing in which the ERS is housed. As with Schenker's ZEN and Smart product lines, the individual units of the desalination plant are modular in design, thus allowing space-saving installation.
The Modular 60 watermaker produces 60 liters of fresh water per hour (15.8 gallons per hour) via reverse osmosis. Thanks to Schenker's patented Energy Recovery System (ERS), energy consumption is very low at 240 watts per hour (approx. 4 watts per liter / approx. 15.2 watts per gallon of water produced). The power consumption is up to 80% lower compared to conventional desalination plants. This makes the unit particularly suitable for self-sufficient water production. The desalination plant can be directly connected to the on-board power supply (12V / 24V), or to alternating current (230V).
The use of high-quality materials for all components and the well thought-out design make the Modular 60 not only quiet and low on vibration, but also keep the device absolutely corrosion-free and ensure its long service life.
Many recreational and circumnavigational sailors rely on the reliable Schenker products with low power consumption. In combination with alternative energy sources such as solar and wind power, the 12 and 24 Volt versions enable an independent lifestyle on the water.
