If you are a boat owner and looking for the appliances to heat water for dishes or a shower when sailing... marine water heaters from Hubbell is what you need. Check out the review and find the top features with benefits of the Hubbell heaters.
Hubbell marine water heaters from the MTX series are the electric units that are using tankless or on-demand technology for water heating. Small and compact size, significant reduction of stand-by heat loss and weight, and high efficiency operation are what gives these units an advantage over the storage tank type models.
All Hubbell marine heaters are built of quality, tough materials, such as the corrosion-resistant stainless steel casing, to provide long lasting service even in harsh environment with the stormy, windy, wet and salty conditions.
Hubbell marine appliances for water heating are available in variety of models where the maximum power is 54 kW and minimum 5 kW, either using single or three phase voltages (208 thru 600 V).
The Hubbell MTX model combines the high powered heating elements and electronic temperature controller to provide precise modulating power, which can go from 0 to 100%, and as needed, and deliver an accurate hot water temperature with less fluctuation. Each heating element is proportionally and independently energized to provide equally distributed load. This is what provides greater savings and better comfort when using hot water and longer life for the heating elements. Maximum number of heating elements, six, is found on models with the tank size from 24 to 54 kW, while smaller units have 2 and 3.
MTX models also come with several useful features such as the drain port to allow easy service and maintenance, safety thermostats with the hi-limit switch to protect against overheating (200 F), inlet and outlet thermistors to measure temperature, dielectric unions for easy plumbing work and numeric digital display.
These units work with the minimum water flow of 0.2 gallon per minute and maximum of 8 GPM; while the temperature can be set to its maximum of 194 F. The temperature can be adjusted by pressing the UP or DOWN buttons on the display. All the information is controlled by the advanced electronic temperature controller resulting in the precise amount of power needed for the set temperature. The outlet temperature of hot water is then shown on the LED digital display located at the front of the unit. If there is a problem inside the unit, the error code will also be seen on the digital display (example: Err 1).
The MTX models have the ability to integrate remote and priority control so you can remotely enable heating operation and give the priority to the water heater over another appliance, so that both do not operate at the same time.
The Hubbell marine water heaters can be installed almost anywhere on the boat, indoor or outdoor (only in correct enclosure), while the location where can be exposed to freezing and excessive humidity should be avoided. Upon delivery of the unit, plumbing and electrical service connections are ready.
