Press Release #1

Dometic Presents Coolmatic CRX65D – The First 3-In-1 Marine Drawer Fridge With Removable Freezer Compartment Southampton Boat Show, 15th to 24th September, Stand J361, Ocean Hall

Refrigeration specialist expands award-winning CRX range of versatile solutions for boat owners

Marine refrigeration specialist Dometic presents the convenient and versatile CoolMatic CRX65D compressor drawer fridge with removable freezer for the first time at Southampton Boat Show.

Providing boat owners with a practical three-in-one cabinet solution, Dometic’s new 57-litre capacity CRX65D is the first marine drawer fridge with freezer compartment which can be easily transformed into a larger capacity fridge-only or freezer-only unit.

The elegant drawer fridge contains two removable basket compartments so users can organise their provisions in accessible, slide-out rows. The 7-litre freezer section can be removed to adapt the unit as required, for storing fresh food and also deep freezing produce in temperatures as low as 17°F

The CRX65D features a flush-mount electronic thermostat control panel with 5 temperature setting points, located on the interior side wall where users can easily reach it to make precise soft-touch adjustments.

An infrared sensor triggers a bright LED-light system to illuminate the interior.

Ensuring efficient performance, reduced power consumption and quiet operation, the DC-powered fridge (12/24V) uses an advanced, powerful electronic three-speed variable compressor which adjusts automatically to achieve the required cooling capacity. The fan is driven by the ambient temperature to minimise the noise. The fridge is also suitable for solar operation.

Julien Le Feuvre, Head of Marine OEM - EMEA, Dometic, said: “Our DAME Award winning CRX range of refrigerators featuring our breakthrough patented removable freezer concept is providing boat owners with a truly unique unit which they can adapt to suit their specific needs, granting them new versatility in keeping their food and drinks fresh. We are now delighted to expand the range and introduce the CoolMatic CRX65D for those people who prefer the option of a drawer fridge with slide-out access to their refreshments which they can organise in secure, easy to reach rows.

“The CRX range is a stylish addition to your galley and easy to install, with exceptional interior illumination, and features the latest technology to ensure quiet and economic operation, precise temperature control and durability.”

The CRX65D unit has a temperature range of 0 to 12°C for the fridge compartment and -6 to -12°C for the freezer compartment. It has a power consumption at 5°C of 16 watts (1.3 amps at 12V) at an ambient temperature of 25°C, or 28 watts (2.3 amps at 12V) at an ambient temperature of 32°C.

Saving vital space on smaller boats, a special cut-out design on the back of the fridge allows the unit to be fitted against the vessel’s hull.

The sleek Dometic CRX65D fridge is available in silver grey, with a stainless steel version also available.

The Dometic CRX65D fridge is priced at £831.22 excluding VAT.


Press Release #2

New Dometic XZ Watermaker Purifies Seawater and Fresh Water in a Single Compact Unit Southampton Boat Show, 15th to 24th September, Stand J361, Ocean Hall

Unique system combines the benefits of a Sea Xchange watermaker and a Spot Zero fresh water purfication system

For the first time at Southampton Boat Show, Dometic introduces the new Dometic XZ Series of compact watermakers, a unique system enabling boat owners to automatically purify both seawater and fresh water with a single, compact machine.

The XZ watermaker combines the benefits of an on-board Sea Xchange watermaker and a Spot Zero fresh water reverse-osmosis purification system for pure water anywhere in the world.

Significantly reducing space requirements, installation time and the cost of buying two separate systems, the unified Dometic XZ system shares one frame and one controller and is available in four sizes.

Water is passed through the Sea Xchange side of the system first, making potable fresh water from seawater before feeding it to the Spot Zero system.

The second pass through the Spot Zero unit further purifies the fresh water by removing 95-99% of total dissolved solids. The ultra-purified water is then sent to the vessel’s storage tank.

The combination unit can be operated as independent seawater and fresh water reverse-osmosis systems if required.

Steve Morris, Director of Marine Sales & Engineering – EMEA, Dometic, said: “Our new XZ range is effectively two systems combined into one. For anyone considering a seawater and fresh water reverse-osmosis system, this option saves significant space and cuts the cost and time spent on installation.”

After passing through a Dometic Spot Zero system, the boat’s fresh water system will typically be down to a range of about 15 to 20 ppm (parts per million) of total dissolved solids, whereas typical seawater contains about 35,000 ppm. This means boat owners can enjoy ultra-pure fresh water for drinking, ice-making, cooking and bathing – whether they are out on the ocean or in a marina. The purified water is ideal for spot-free cleaning of boat interiors, as well as external washdowns. Low ppm water means the freshly-washed hull can be left to simply dry in the sun, with no need to chamois or dry by hand. In addition, sinks, stainless taps, toilets, water solenoids and shower screens all remain in perfect ‘as new’ condition.

The Dometic XZ features a one-touch fully automatic system and a touchscreen with graphical display for easy operation. The unit uses condensed filtration with high-capacity filters which are changed less frequently and has an integrated sound shield to minimise operating noise.

The four XZ models produce volumes of purified water from saltwater/fresh water of 4,542/7,571 LPD up to 8,328/11,356 LPD.

Prices for the Dometic XZ start at €28,480 inc VAT (price is approximate).
