Belt / Engine Driven Watermakers (Modular)

Engine / Belt Driven Watermakers are ideally suited where the propulsion engine runs more than once a week. They produce 21 – 64 gallons fresh water per hour, even on the smallest yacht without generator. Every time the diesel engine runs, you will produce large quantities of fresh water and charge your batteries at the same time. Adding a watermaker pump to the alternator’s load will also benefit your diesel engine, as it does not like to run underloaded. 
The high-pressure pump mounts on a custom bracket directly to the main engine or generator. An electromagnetic clutch, driven via one A section belt couples the watermakers’ pump to the engine. The supplied U-bracket helps to install the pump on the engine like a second alternator.

"Since 3 years we have an ECHOTec installed like most cruisers we know. After more than 25.000 liters produced, we as well as all our friends have no problems with your desalination system. Therefore, we have decided to use an ECHOTec watermaker again on our new project: the first circumnavigation on an electro-powered catamaran without sails and any fossil fuel." Michael Köhler, MV "Solarwave"

"I can’t thank you enough for seeing us through the installation and for designing and building such a high quality watermaking system. I was eager to get the word out about Echotec to future cruisers, which is what prompted me to write an article about the system for Cruising World." Emily, SY "Groovy"
"Having recently passed Captain Cook's "Thirsty Sound" inside Australia's Great Barrier Reef it seemed a good time to send a note thanking you for my excellent water maker. Given the choice I shall never sail without one. There are surprisingly many boats with your equipment on board and without exception we are all very happy with our water-makers and the excellent and prompt back-up you have given us."
