Types of Stella ConStellation 380 Watermaker
For larger powerboats, yachts and catamarans with a suitable sized AC genset. Always the first option, easy installation and makes lots of water fast. You will need a minimum 3.5kva (continuously rated) genset to run our 240VAC electric unit. Output is 80, 160 or 210 litres per hour of water using 1, 2 or 3 standard membranes. Power usage (LP and HP pump) is approx. 12amps when running (without start-up load).
For all vessels without a genset, but with an inboard engine. It’s a very efficient and reliable way of making plenty of water very quickly. You will need a suitable engine with room to fit an engine bracket and pulley system. We have some standard brackets available or custom fabrication is required. Output is 80, 160 or 240 litres per hour of water using 1, 2 or 3 standard membranes. Power usage is approx. 2HP draw from engine.
For sailing yachts, catamarans and small powerboats. The last option if you don’t have a genset or suitable motor with room to mount a bracket. A smaller motor and high pressure pump means less water output but our 12 volt systems have been a huge success. You will need a good source of 12V power and you may need to run an engine while making water to top up batteries.
