Dometic to Launch XTC-ZTC Double-Pass Watermaker at IBEX

The XTC-ZTC is the first and only integrated double-pass reverse-osmosis system that can purify every source of yacht water – including seawater, brackish water, lake water, river water, or dockside water

Pompano Beach, Fla., – Aug. 18, 2015Dometic Marine, a division of Dometic Group, a global provider of leisure products for the marine, truck, RV and automotive markets, today announced that it will showcase its new XTC-ZTC Double-Pass Watermaker at the International Boatbuilders’ Exhibition and Conference (IBEX), Sept. 15-17 in Louisville, Ky.

The XTC-ZTC is the first and only fully automatic, integrated double-pass reverse-osmosis system that can purify every source of yacht water, including seawater, brackish water, lake water, river water, or dockside water. It is also the first and only watermaker with mechanical override for full redundancy and peace of mind. And, no other watermaker can be operated and monitored remotely, via smartphone, tablet or computer: The XTC-ZTC can be operated from home, a car or anywhere via the Dometic’s Smart Touch Integrated Intelligence Control software.

The XTC-ZTC is a double-pass system. The XTC side of the system – the first pass – makes potable freshwater from seawater and feeds it to the ZTC system. The second pass is through the ZTC system, which further purifies the freshwater by removing 95-99% of total dissolved solids. The ultra-purified water is then sent to the vessel’s storage tank. If at port, boat owners can also use the ZTC system to purify dockside water before bringing it onboard.

“With the XTC-ZTC, boat owners can enjoy ultra-pure fresh water for drinking, ice-making, cooking and bathing – whether they are out on the ocean, cruising an inland lake or in a marina. The XTC-ZTC is ideal for spot-free cleaning of boat interiors, as well as external washdowns, with no need to chamois,” said Ned Trigg, Senior VP of Global System Sales at Dometic Marine.

The ZTC freshwater reverse osmosis system eliminates 95-99% of all impurities – including hard-water minerals, heavy metals, particles, viruses, cysts, bacteria, and radioactive contaminants – creating fresh, clean drinking water. The system removes dissolved solids which leave water spots and are destructive to marine paints, coatings, hardware and other yacht finishes. The pure, softened water means boat finishes last much longer, saving boat owners thousands of dollars.

“The XTC-ZTC provides boaters with the most advanced water purification technology for every source of yacht water, whether you are cruising the ocean, the Gulf, taking on the Great Loop or docked in a marina anywhere in the world,” said Doug Curtis, VP of Marketing at Dometic Americas. “XTC-ZTC water is the purest you could possibly drink. There’s no need to bring bottled water onboard—so you can eliminate that expense and the plastic waste it generates.”
