The Future of Watermaking
FCI Watermakers does more than build and sell marine reverse osmosis units. We invent the technology and advance the systems that are the future of marine desalination around the planet. Over a decade ago, FCI pioneered the integration of the UROC (Universal Reverse Osmosis Controller), which allowed features and automation never before seen in a marine water maker. These attributes have become standards in today’s marine desalinators and commercial systems, including one-touch commands, multiple station operation and remote system control and monitoring.
Today, FCI continues to provide boaters and offshore industries with products that are always ahead of the curve. As both engineers and craftsmen, we specialize in dependable, high-performance and value-driven marine water makers and are proud of the thousands of continuously operating RO units that have been cruising the globe for decades.
Why FCI Watermakers?
Solid Warranty Coverage: Unlike competitors that offer complicated and contradictory warranties that vary with terms and conditions that apply to individual components, the entire FCI marine series systems are covered for two years on all non-consumable parts.
More For Your Money: FCI Watermakers come complete. You don’t need to buy add-ons, packages, accessories or upgrades to achieve rated outputs and superior performance. What’s more, our inclusive pricing beats the retail price of systems by other manufacturers.
You’ll Like The Sound Of It: FCI engineers one of the industry’s quietest watermaking systems thanks to its open frame construction, vibration isolating mounts and low RPM operation. Competing systems amplify noise due to closed-frame construction and high-pressure pumps running on excessive RPMs.
We Pass The Test: FCI does not test our water makers on our customers. Extensive research and development are conducted on each product to guarantee optimum performance and dependability before it is approved as part of our product line. Once approved, every system is “wet-run”, computer calibrated and cataloged after coming off the production line to ensure each water maker measures up to our high standards and your expectations.
Tastes Great, More Filter: FCI Watermakers systems produce cleaner water with lower TDS acceptance levels. The World Health Organization (WHO) limits the TDS of drinking water to 1000 ppm. Most competitors set their systems to accept “good” water at levels around 800 ppm. Under normal sea water conditions, FCI watermakers produce clean, fresh, pure water under 250 ppm, better than most tap water.
Always At Your Service: We engineer our water makers to transcend your needs, and are committed to customer service that exceeds your expectations. With our on-call availability and our hands-on technical support plus a world-wide service network that can supply quick-fix consumables, we promise to never leave you adrift.
Exclusive and Uncompromising Engineering
Intuitive engineering guarantees the longevity, durability and performance of every FCI Watermakers unit. Our system design optimizes the flow of water, while industrial-quality materials employed throughout the reverse osmosis unit ensure robust operations. Take a look at the features that make an FCI watermaker the world’s finest.
Our Design Gives Boaters Control: Our open-frame and modular FCI systems are designed to facilitate visual inspections and routine, on-site maintenance. By comparison, competitors’ enclosed-frame systems require complicated disassembly to allow shipboard inspection.
Achieve Expected Outputs: Your FCI watermaker is engineered to deliver the advertised output. Typically, competing water makers rate their output based on a certain set of criteria, thus the advertised output is often only achievable under certain conditions, if at all. At FCI we engineer our systems and rate our outputs based on real-world conditions, so when boating and water environments vary, the performance of our water makers isn’t compromised.
High-Grade Materials Assure Lasting Performance: FCI uses high grade alloys in all our critical components. Competing brands often use inferior material that compromise system operation and jeopardize the vessel. For example, plastic pumps installed below the waterline invite flooding if the pump is cracked or inadvertently stepped on.
More Reliability, Less Hassle: FCI systems are designed to be more tolerant of water conditions. Your vessel travels around the world and encounters water that varies in both salinity and particulate. FCI’s equipment and components allow full function operation in varying conditions. Alternatively, competitors use parts that are so susceptible to feed water variances that they require special filtration to counter these conditions. This results in more frequent filter changes and added cost of operation. Their pumps are so sensitive to change that if you do not use their special filters you will void their warranty.
Non-proprietary Membranes: FCI Watermakers use commercially available, industry standard membranes. Competing brands often use more expensive proprietary membranes, available only at select locations. These elements can have less surface area, resulting in a lower quality water and a higher propensity for membrane fouling.
Enjoy Quick Water Satisfaction: FCI delivers water makers that will be up and running instantly. Every unit arrives calibrated with no need to purchase additional accessories or calibration solutions to complete the set up.
