Dometic’s engineering team will unveil the NEW Titan Chiller at a special reception, to be held at booth #2341 on Wednesday, Dec. 2 at noon.
Pompano Beach, Fla. – Nov. 18, 2015 – Dometic Marine, a division of Dometic Group, a global provider of comfort products for the marine, truck, RV and automotive markets, today announced that it will be showcasing the Dometic Titan Chiller, a 45-ton unit with revolutionary new titanium coaxial tube condenser, at this year’s International Workboat show, to be held in New Orleans Dec. 1 through 3.
The chiller, which Dometic custom designed and built for a 50-meter project, will be unveiled at booth #2341 on Wednesday, Dec. 2 at noon. (Refreshments will be served and members of the media are welcome.)
Dometic has taken a big step to improve the longevity of its chilled water system condenser coils. The coils in the new chiller are made of industrial-grade titanium, providing captains and crews with a unit that is virtually immune to erosion and corrosion.
“Until now, the problem has been that chiller condensers – made of a softer metal called cupronickel – simply couldn’t stand up to the acid cleaning and high water velocity needed to keep the invasive marine life out of the chiller’s plumbing,” said Charlie A. Barefoot, Jr., Vice President of Engineering and Technical Support at Dometic. “This is why we built the Titan Chiller with a condenser made of industrial-grade titanium. It’s a very strong material that does not erode the way cupronickel does.”
Debris from invasive marine life has been increasing considerably in recent years, causing serious issues with yacht and superyacht chillers. Dometic studied this problem extensively and found that the common methods used to battle it, such as acid cleaning and higher water velocity, were detrimental to cupronickel tubing. Therefore, Dometic developed the Titan Chiller, which uses titanium tubes that can easily withstand these cleaning methods. Recent beta tests have confirmed that titanium can withstand acid cleaning and high water velocity far better than traditional condenser metals.
“Dometic engineers set out to create a chiller that is more robust and problem free, to suit the stringent requirements for commercial, military, and superyacht vessels. The Titan, with its new patent-pending titanium condenser, now sets the standard for corrosion-resistant design,” said Ned Trigg, Executive Vice President at Dometic Marine.
The Titan Chiller Titanium condenser comes with a limited 5-year warranty. To view a video of the Titan Chiller, click https://youtu.be/S3PAEtxFO5s .
At the International Workboat Show, Dometic will also be unveiling its new CX Watermaker, a high-capacity unit built for extreme offshore conditions. The CX can produce between 8,000-40,000 gallons per day of potable water.
