The Company:
Dometic develops products that make life on the water more comfortable and productive. An engineering leader of innovative products for the global marine industry with the largest worldwide sales and service network, products include air conditioning, ventilation, air purification, water purification, and sanitation. Compact, modular, and shell-and-tube chillers are customized for up to 2.4 million BTUs of climate control. The firm has about 300 employees.

Recent Highlights / Deliveries / Contracts:

For a 72’ Signet tug boat, Dometic designed a custom chiller system with a compact, efficient, brazed-plate heat exchanger for the condenser. This was possible because this class of vessel uses a secondary heat exchanger (keel cooler) which keeps seawater away from the condenser. The design allows maximum performance at high condenser temperatures. Beyond this, the firm recently expanded the Pompano Beach facility to include an additional 33,000 square feet of factory floor space. The firm provides engineering and manufacturing of marine air conditioning systems (self-contained, split systems, and chillers), ship-wide ventilation and fire dampers, watermakers and water purification systems, in-duct air purification, and sanitation systems, including VacuFlush, MasterFlush, and RushFlush toilet technologies. Although Dometic has a broad range of products to fit many applications, custom engineering is also available.

The Case:

Expertise and experience: For more than 50 years, Dometic leads in the engineering of innovative and reliable products for the global marine industry. In 1960, Dometic pioneered commercial marine air conditioning, and continue to develop a variety of products that make life on the water more comfortable and productive.
