Blue Water’s Reverse Osmosis Products Now Available in The Netherlands and Italy
We continue to expand our global reach through the appointment of two new dealers in Europe. Sales, installation and service of Blue Water Desalination watermakers, equipment and accessories can be performed in Italy by Technical Dream and in both The Netherlands and Belgium by BTST Marine Equipment.
Blue Water Desalination recently supplied a Legend LX watermaker for installation aboard the NOAA research vessel Gordon Gunter. The Legend LX is a fully automatic reverse osmosis desalination system and has a capacity of 3,200 Gallons per day. BWD’s engineers modified the standard LX to meet some unique requirements of the NOAA ship. These included the addition of a Pulsation Dampener to the high pressure pump and a membrane cleaning loop and tank.

The April/May issue of Professional BoatBuilder magazine – while always being a good and highly informative read for all things innovative in boating – includes a call-out to our two newest water maker models: the Legend LX and Express XT. The following is from Professional BoatBuilder’s New Products and Processes Section:

The Express XT, designed for small to mid-size yachts, features convenient one-touch operation with capacities of up to 33 gallons per hour. Both are available in compact and modular configurations.
The Ship’s Systems feature of the latest issue of Marlin Magazine (March ’15) covers the brilliance of having an on board watermaker that uses reverse osmosis technology to turn salty sea water into pure potable water that is actually cleaner than most municipal and dock water supplies!
The World’s Largest Watering Hole
With a Watermaker, the Ocean Becomes a Limitless Supply of Freshwater
Once considered an extravagant option aboard a sport-fishing boat, watermakers are pretty much standard equipment today, with many boats even utilizing two units. Having a steady supply of potable water to shower, cook, live aboard and wash the boat with at the end of the day is a huge benefit. Converting salt water to fresh via the reverse-osmosis process gives you virtually mineral-free water, so it is far less damaging to topcoat finishes and Isinglass curtains than city or dock water. It’s also better for ice machines and the entire freshwater system. (more…)
