Re: Air con circulating pump

Bryce Procter

Hi Nick,
I replaced mine with a March magnetic drive two years ago and it has been going faultlessly since. As with yours it is much smaller and extremely quiet. I have been moored in Malaysia and it runs almost 20 hours a day without issue. Cost from memory was about 600 AUD. If interested I can send you a pic and model number.

Cheers

Re: Improved 24v alternator pulleys and turbo heat shield

Nick,

Great find! The Leece - Neville was not an issue on the SM, but was an issue on the D3 in early 54s. I know this will help others.

Re: Air con circulating pump

Nick,

If you cruise in the tropics, that will not be enough water flow.

From my Amel Book:
"The basic rule of thumb is 1 gallon per minute (GPM) is required for every 4,000 Btu’s of capacity. So, 9,000 * 3 = 27,000/4,000= 6.75gal/min * 3.785=25.55liters/min * 60 = 1,532 liters/hour OR, 6,75GPM * 60 = 405GPH.

The original 53 & 54 pump, the Climma BCM20 is rated at 1200+ gal/hr (GPH), which is three times what it should be rated at using the "rule of thumb." However, as you know, when all 3 A/Cs are running, the salon gets its required saltwater from the output of the aft AC, which has been heated because of heat transfer. And the
fore AC gets its required saltwater from the output of the aft AC and the salon AC, which has been heated because of heat transfer. I really do not know how to take all of that "pre-heated" water into account.

Veco (Climma) uses Calpeda pumps and brands them with the Climma brand. When they do this, they assign a Climma number. The Calpeda number is BCM20/E for the original AC saltwater pump. Calpeda no longer offers a BCM20/E, they currently offer a Calpeda BCM22/1/A-R and it is 50/60Hz. It moves 1,700GPH. And even better is the Gianneschi 01CB22G302 with a 95MM Impeller. It pumps 1841 GPH and is 230VAC 50/60htz."

The thing that ruins all required flow calculations is that the ACs on SMs and 54s are connected to the saltwater line in series.

I bought a Dormaire magnetic aircon circulating pump rated 950gph to replace the old. Euro 264.
It pumps plenty of water to run all three units but is very small, about 10cm long by about 7cm wide and very light.  I suspect it will not last very long but we shall see.
It is also a DC motor so there is a 240v-24v power supply that comes with it.
It replaces the Calpeda monster that needed a screw driver on the shaft to get it going and it leaked. It’s bronze impeller has warn down, I think not from corrosion but from abrasion. On board was the kit to replace the shaft seal.
I plan to buy a new impeller and then swap back when the Dormaire dies.
For now it looks like the Dormaire is great; lighter, quieter,more efficient. No seals.

Re: Dessalator water maker pre filter housing

Take a flat blade screwdriver and gently tap the screwdriver against the tightening ring. Use some MolyKote Dow 111 on the O ring.

When you change the filter, use the rinse valve to force water in and air out before tightening the ring. Tighten by hand assuming you used MolyKote.

Re: Genoa Furler motor

Bernd, contact the original builder of the SM gearbox. I assume he made the 12-volt version in the SN. The last time I discussed this with him he had about 20 new motors for the 24v SM furler...hopefully he has some 12v for the Santorin. Include a photo of what you have. Write in French only, and tell him that Bill Rouse gave you his contact information:

According SAV Amel does not support the furler, spares or the motor itself anymore. Looks like this also goes for the SM.

Re: SM Hard top

I believe that whether or not solar can be integrated into a hardtop depends on the model and manufacturer of the panels. The Amel 50 uses SolbianFlex Panels which are made in Italy.

SM Hard top

ianjenkins1946 <ianjudyjenkins@hotmail.com>

I shall be very interested to read Bill's review of the Amel 50, but you can have solar on a hard top on an SM.

We had this carbon fibre top made for us in Greece this winter and are delighted with the result. It has made the whole cockpit feel even more spacious and achieved more headroom than we had with the canvas bimini which we had already modified to achieve better headroom.  With the hard top we now have 186 cm ( 6ft 1.2 inches ) pretty well throughout the cockpit. LED ceiling lights.   2x Solarworld Semi-Flexible PCB -ETFE panels, 180w each. In retrospect we could have fitted larger panels but the input even from these has transformed our use of the genset.

The vinyl window unzips across the top. You can open a small section if it's raining and you want to see better or you can open the whole window which rolls down.

The hard top is strong--you can dance on it if you are so inclined. We are just happy to be underneath it.

Re: Dessalator water maker pre filter housing

Hi Kevin;

There is a tool, similar to an oil filter wrench, that locks into the large plastic ring at the top of the filter housing to unscrew. Then filter housing lowers and can be removed, once this plastic ring/nut is completely unscrewed.

Good morning,

Simple, silly question on opening the pre filter housing (2) on my Dessalator water maker.  How do I open these housing to maintain the filters?  I assume the green body unscrews into the white top piece? As it is plastic,  I did not want to break if attempting to open improperly.  I’m not sure if there is a special wrench or not..?

Thanks,
