Dometic’s HVAC technology has enabled the development of the new chiller with two significant features - corrosion-resistant titanium and variable capacity technology for energy efficiency.
The ground-breaking use of titanium condenser coils increases chiller longevity, ensuring seawater erosion and corrosion caused by marine organic growth are kept to a minimum. All Dometic VARC chillers adjust capacity output based on the current load demand, maximising efficiency and cost-effectiveness.
The titanium VARCX achieves variable capacities of 12,000 to 48,000 BTU, 15,000 to 60,000 BTU, and 18,000 to 72,000, while maximising chiller efficiency and reducing electrical load fluctuations. It can be adjusted to Economy, Standard or Boost mode.
Peter Kruk, President of EMEA, Dometic, said: “The VARCX offers all the efficiency benefits associated with the VARC chiller line, plus the condenser coils made of titanium make the units virtually immune to erosion and corrosion, significantly extending the life of cooling systems. The variable capacity technology incorporated into all of Dometic’s VARC chillers ensures that the systems work efficiently whether the boat is in full use in a hot climate or just with limited crew in the evening on limited power supply.”
After three years of evaluations and feedback from its prominent customers, Dometic is continuing to incorporate titanium condensers into more of its products.
