A major advantage of the Maritime Booster® is the short time of heating up. The combustion chamber has an unique process heat exchanger of stainless steel. The ultra-responsive exchanger quickly provides plenty of hot water at the desired temperature.
A small water reservoir is the perfect solution in order to prevent the legionella bacterium. The Maritime Booster® has a hot water capacity of only 0,2 litres. This in comparison to a hot water reservoir with a capacity of 40 litres. This respectively means that with a supply of 5 litre per minute it will take 8 minutes to finally flush the reservoir of 40 litres. The Maritime Booster® however provides continuous hot water within 2.4 seconds.
Consumption of Electronics
The Maritime Booster® requires an output of 190 watts when it is in operation. When the Maritime Booster® runs on 24 volt through an sine wave inverter, it draws 6,77 amp in one hour. The Maritime Booster® comes standard with an 230 volt version. It is a misconception that 24 volt consumes less than 230 volt. A circulation pump and a burner can also supply power with 24 volt. The only loss – of less than 6% - is because of the inverter. This inverter is needed in order to bridge from 24 volt to 230 volt.
A disadvantage of a 24 volt burner is that the burner, at a low voltage of 20 to 22, remains burning. When the heating system continues to burn at a low voltage, there is no balance anymore between air and oil because the turning speed of the motor varies. The consequence is that the heating system will soot and break down. This is why we recommend a sine wave inverter. An inverter will give a signal in case of a low voltage and will cut out of operation until the danger is past.
All Maritime Booster® models are provided with a modulating and certified energy label A pump. This pump ensures a reduction in energy consumption and generates benefits for the environment. This pump delivers a saving up to 30% in comparison to the traditional circulation pump.
Consumption of diesel
The rule of thumb for oil use is that 10kW is generated per litre of oil. Based on this rule, an example will be given with a Maritime Booster® Micro (9,5 kW). In this case the outside temperature is -10ºC and the inside temperature is requested at 20ºC, the Maritime Booster® will have to bridge a difference of 30ºC. In this situation, the Maritime Booster® will have to use all its power and thus it needs one litre of oil per hour. As the average temperature in the Netherlands is 10 ºC, the temperature difference is only 10 ºC to reach the desired 20 ºC. Therefore only 0.33 litres of oil will be consumed.
