A call out to USA owners,

 

I have a box of supplies being assembled in the USA for shipment to Tahiti. I would like to include replacement HP hoses for the Amel installed D60 Dessalator. I am unsure of the exact specs for the fittings although I have searched the forum and think it is stainless steel 3/8 inch JIC fittings on all ends. The stuff I am unsure about is if the hose has to be “food grade” and the pressure rating.

 

Does anyone have a company from whom I can order on-line or better still provide me with a part number and e-tailer?

 

I have an email out to balcen.com (the USA Dessalator dealer) – I expect they supply it but am assuming it will be expensive and other options might prove more thifty.

 

 

With best regards,

FW: Replacement HP hoses for Dessalator - UPDATE

Mark Erdos
 

I am wondering if someone who has ordered or understands HP hoses for the water maker would be kind enough to take a quick peek at this (before I push the buy button) and make sure this is correct:

 

HT-06-ASB | 3/8" HYDRAULAX TOUGH™ Hydraulic Hose Assembly

Code: HT-06-ASB

Fitting #1: SS-FJX-06-06 | (Stainless)3/8" JIC 37° Flare Female Swivel (SS-FJX-06-06)

Fitting #2: SS-FJX-06-06 | (Stainless)3/8" JIC 37° Flare Female Swivel (SS-FJX-06-06)

Overall Length: 3 feet 0 inches

 

These are about US$85 per 3’ hose assembled.

 

 

 

With best regards,

Re: wiring schematic

Hi Ulrich & Randall,

Our Amel does not have the dive compressor. However the 230 Volt plus is still installed in the port lazarette. It's one of those blue, big ones like for shore power plugs.

I'm a bit surprised by the inflator plug as present in the schematic diagram. Our Amel 54 does not have a 24 Volt socket in the rear lazarette but it does have a 230 Volt socket in this lazarette. It also came with an inflator pump running on 230 Volt. So it could be that Amel changed the voltage for the inflator at some point.

Regards,

Arno Luijte

Nick,
It's a long shot, but if you know somebody in Gibraltar, I would give it to you. As I have a new microwave and have no use for the rack I have.
Hope you know someone here. Let me know.
Cheers,
Randall

Does anyone know the size of this rack. It is circular and in the region of 20cm diameter? It sits on the rotating plate, and allows the oven to be used as a grill not just a microwave.

So I want to know the diameter and the height of the legs…..anyone able to help?

“food grade” is a misnomer here. The high pressure hoses are always carrying seawater, only filtered through a sediment filter. It’s not drinkable water. The product water comes from the other side of the membrane, under much lower pressure. That lower pressure hose should be suitable to move drinkable water. 

The key is to use stainless fittings on the high pressure hose ends to keep them from corroding.

This explanation about a very professional and precise installation from Alex is such impressive. Could not be better!

Hi All,

on my 220 V panel a breaker is already installed, but obviously I can´t find the socket accordingly. Where should it be?

So far, I know about the socket for the dinghy inflator pump (nearby to the SSB antenna tuner) in the stb lazarette, but the dedicated socket for an dive compressor?
Curious too, thanks for advise very appreciated.

Microwave oven on Amel 54

Re: replacing mirrors in bathroom

Ian Park
 

Mark, 
All four mirrors in our Santorin were held in place with screw fixed mirror mounts. 
I believe they were original fixtures, although I have replaced them. 
They have never been a problem and make changing the glass quite easy. It sounds a bit tricky releasing them if they are bonded direct, especially if the bulkhead is covered with foam backed lining.

Hi Alex,

 

I hope you are doing well. It has been some time since we had a drink together.

 

About three years ago, I replaced the bathroom mirrors on Cream Puff. I also replaced the medicine cabinet mirrors. For the cabinets, I used Plexiglas mirrors and for the walls, glass was used. If you use glass, it is best to treat it with a product such as this to make it shatterproof: https://www.purlfrost.com/safety-security-window-film-stickers/glass-safety-window-film/. This can be added at the store or by the person who sells you the glass mirror.

 

Ours were not adhered to the wall. This makes me wonder if the previous owner had replaced them prior. It was a pretty easy project. To fasten the mirrors, I used the mounts already in place. Perhaps I should have also used double sided tape.

 

 

 

 

With best regards,

 

Mark

The mirrors in the bathroom of my A54 back cabin don't look good anymore. Because I have some spare time due to the virus, I decided to replace them here in Trinidad. Does anyone have experience in removing the existing mirrors? They seem to be glued to the wall. The local guy who helps here suggests to put the new mirrors back with a thick tape that has glue on both sides plus 4 screws. Same here, does anyone have tips how to attach the new mirrors the best possible way?
Thanks for your advice,
