Harsh Marine Conditions Require Rugged Yet Comfortable Toilets
Based on the Isle of Wight, UK, South Boats Special Projects Ltd. are the largest builders of offshore wind-farm support vessels in the world. With 66 vessels in service or in build within the region and with 14 company operators, it’s imperative that the company uses a trusted supplier for premium on-board systems.
When it comes to the on-board environment of a workboat, the provision of efficient and reliable sanitation systems is important. Ideal marine heads should effectively macerate waste; withstand constant use in a harsh marine environment, while also providing comfort and ease of use for the crew.
Modern And Robust Toilet Systems Save Water & Power
Already familiar with Dometic’s engineering capabilities and product reliability from specifying air conditioning systems for their vessels, South Boats decided to use Dometic for their toilet systems, also. Seeking a reliable toilet system that would offer both comfort and efficiency, Dometic’s MasterFlush macerating toilets were the natural choice.
With a compact design and small footprint, the SeaLand® 8600 MasterFlush toilet uses 64% less power and 33% fewer amps than competing models. In addition, it can save fresh water with a flush setting which does not add water to the bowl.
This ‘rough-sea’ flush feature also eliminates spillage from the toilet during turbulent conditions. The 8600 toilet has through-floor or through-wall discharge options.
The 18-blade stainless-steel macerator turbine delivers up to 2,500 rpm to grind waste into a fine effluent with no clogging. Effluent is propelled to the holding tank which can be installed up to 98 ft. (30 m) away.
Quick, Easy-to-Install Sanitation Solutions Deliver High Performance at Sea
“Dometic Marine offers a wide range of systems which they have been able to customise in accordance with our specific requirements,” comments Chris Cheverton, Purchasing Manager, South Boats.
“We’ve had great success with Dometic’s air conditioning systems so we recently expanded the scope of supply to include the company’s modern and robust macerating toilets. The MasterFlush systems are quick and easy-to-install and provide efficient, high-performance sanitation solutions for the crew on-board.”
