Thanks John
Yes Electec is a good company. I will go tomorrow to speak with them about the end caps from DesalI. I have still 6 end caps, 2 of them with the hp water inlet, from Desal, He sended to me last year for testing, for free. So I have now a good ouverlook whats happend, when the end caps cracked on the connection. And yes, it is verry imortant to put the O rings very carefully in place.

Best regards and stay save

Betreff : Re: [AmelYachtOwners] Membrane Tube end caps

Han, I had end caps made out of delrin in St Martin.  The machine shop is E&Msc.  It is behind Lagoonies.  The machinist made a few changes to beef them up.  I have run them now for two years with no issues.

I think it‘s unfair to broadcast such negative things about Desal, . Amel is still installing Desal Watermakers and I had very good experiances with SAV Dessalator. Mr Wagner jun. and his team is helpful and have a amazing knowledge about H2O makers.
So pls. we know us , be specific what was your problem with SAV. Maybe I can help you, cause I have a very good contact with Wagner

Hi Bill,

Thanks.  I also took the entire holder to the shop… to verify the interior measurements.  I suspect the new ones will be made to a closer tolerance.

Dessalator after sales service has been non existent.

FYI, Dessalator originally made the membrane tube end caps out of white nylon. Emek copied Dessalator. Dessalator's choice of Nylon proved to be the wrong choice. Dessalator later made end caps from a harder material which was black. I am not sure of what the black material is, but, in my experience is that there have been very few issues with the Dessalator black end caps.
