Dometic Group, a global provider of leisure products for the RV, Marine and CPV (Commercial and Passenger Vehicle) markets, today announced that it has acquired Livos Technologies Inc., a provider of engine room ventilation equipment and systems for the commercial and pleasure boat markets. The acquisition will broaden Dometic’s offering to our global client base with new Marine applications such as axial fans, centrifugal blowers, smoke and fire dampers, mist-eliminating grilles and electronic fan controls.

This acquisition will create a larger product portfolio by now also offering engine room ventilation equipment. Customers will benefit from having a single point of contact for their entire HVAC systems, simplifying design, service and maintenance.

Michael Murray, President of Livos Technologies, will report to Ned Trigg, Senior VP of Global System Sales.

Dometic will offer its customers the following new marine ventilation products:

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.
