Dometic to offer Livos machinery ventilation equipment to its yacht and workboat customers,  providing them with a single source for their air conditioning and ventilation needs.
 
 

Dometic Marine, a division of Dometic Group, a global provider of leisure products for the RV, Marine and CPV (Commercial and Passenger Vehicle) markets, today announced that it has entered a strategic partnership with Livos Technologies Inc., a provider of engine room ventilation equipment and systems for the commercial and pleasure boat markets. Under the agreement, Dometic will become a reseller of Livos Technologies’ axial fans, centrifugal blowers, smoke and fire dampers, mist-eliminating grilles, and electronic fan controls.
 


“Livos Technologies is the most innovative provider of machinery ventilation, and we are delighted to be able to offer our customers the best products the industry has to offer,” said Frank Marciano, President, Dometic Americas. “Dometic already provides air conditioning equipment to pleasure boats and workboats, and this strategic partnership will allow us to also offer engine ventilation equipment. Customers will benefit from having a single point of contact for their entire systems, simplifying service and maintenance.”


 
Michael Murray, President of Livos Technologies, added: “This is a mutually beneficial endeavor that will result in an expanded presence for both companies in the commercial, military, pleasure and superyacht markets. We are confident that Dometic’s global presence in both domestic and foreign markets, covering multiple facets of the industry, will facilitate growth at a rapid rate.”
 


Dometic will offer its customers:
 
Commercial Grade Fans and Blowers.  Livos axial fans and blowers provide cooling and/or combustion air for marine machinery spaces. Materials are chosen with corrosion resistance and weight in mind. Blades are constructed of high-strength PPG glass-reinforced polyamide, with standard powder coating of the fan housing. Fan motors are high efficiency, direct drive, and reversible. All hardware is either marine grade aluminum or 316 stainless steel.
 
Smoke and Fire Dampers.  Dampers close off the engine space in the event of a fire. The lack of fresh air in conjunction with the release of fire retardant can snuff out a fire and save a boat from possibly burning to the waterline. Dampers come in both marine grade aluminum and stainless steel.
 
Mist-Eliminating Grilles.  Mist eliminators stop corrosive salt mist and water from entering the engine room. Each mist eliminator is custom designed for maximum air flow and minimum restriction for a given machinery package, keeping air flow and dimensional restrictions in mind. There are four mist eliminator drainage options: Bottom draining, face draining, horizontal and sump draining.
 
Pressure and Temperature Monitoring Fan Controls.  Controls are available for three-phase fans and blowers, as well as 24 VDC fans. They can be manual variable speed, temperature controlled, pressure controlled, or pressure and temperature controlled. DC controls are temperature based. All controls come standard with fire system shutdowns. Three-phase systems can also have fire damper control. Interface with central monitoring systems is optional.
