Spectra Watermakers' Newport 700 and 1000 MKII, like the
proven 400 MKII, are the most technically advanced marine
desalination systems available today. Utilizing the experience
gained from over eight years of building the world's most
automated and energy efficient watermakers, Spectra has again
taken a quantum step in developing the next generation in the
Newport series, the Newport 700 and 1000 MKII.
The MKII is designed and engineered for maximum reliability,
efficiency, and ease of service. Spectra's proprietary "Clark Pump"
high pressure intensifier maintains the proper pressures in the
membrane throughout a wide range of ocean temperatures and
water conditions without any adjustments or loss of product
water output. The composite construction is corrosion resistant
and there are no flow control valves, pressure or flow gauges to
adjust. Available in all voltages. These are the most versatile and
quiet watermakers you can buy.
Newport 700/1000 MKII Innovations in Watermaking
The MKII is more compact than its predecessor because the
50 micron filter has been eliminated in favor of a small filtration
boost pump. This arrangement allows the system to be mounted
in a wider variety of locations and enhances the filtration to the
feed pump module. Installation is also easier and faster because
the MKII has less wiring and a centralized plumbing manifold.
The MKII features the same stalwart Spectra MagDrive™ feed
pump as the Newport MagDrive, coupled to a totally enclosed,
fan cooled, heavy duty motor and control system. The feed pump
and control module has an integrated MPC 5000 control display
for touch pad operation at the equipment mounting location, as
well as a convenient remote display.
The Newport MKII incorporates a multispeed capability that
allows machine operation on high mode for maximum product
flow, or low mode for maximum efficiency. This is the ideal feature
for onboard power management. Run the system and make
lots of water when the engine or generator is running, but when
the system is running on batteries or alternative energy, the
MKII has the capability to drop into the lower speed mode for
lower current and higher efficiency operation. No competitive
system has this feature!
A Revolutionary Backwash System
Yet another innovative feature of the Newport MKII is that it has
been designed with a true pre-filter backwash system. The MKII
backwash system actually creates a freshwater flow backward
though the prefilters and strainer. Most systems that flush with
fresh water only have flow in one direction, trapping material in
the filters. The MKII will produce flow in both directions, backward
though the filters and forward to flush the Clark Pump
and membrane. Backwashing the filters with fresh water helps
prevent anaerobic bacteria formation. This not only eliminates
the odors that can develop in conventional freshwater flushing, it
also keeps filters cleaner and extends overall filter life.
MPC 5000 Controller and Monitor
Spectra's most recent major technological advancement in
control systems is the new MPC 5000. The MPC 5000 has all
of the features of the well known industry standard MPC 3000,
but with more accurate instrumentation, more features, and
enhanced reliability. With the MPC 5000 just set the desired run
time and forget it - the MPC 5000 controller will do the rest. All
of the control and instrumentation functions are displayed on a
panel located on the machine and in a convenient space such as
your navigation area away from the watermaker. The MPC 5000
displays pre-filter condition, feed water pressure, water tank full
status (with optional tank switch), product water quality, product
flow rate and total system hours. The display can be set for
either imperial or metric readouts. One touch to the MPC 5000
touch pad sets the Newport MKII in motion. During startup, the
reject water is automatically diverted back to the ocean by the
controller. Then the desired amount of water fills the storage
tanks, the system backwashes itself clean and shuts itself off. The
MPC 5000 controller can keep the MKII in a fresh water storage
state by automatically backwashing every five days as long as
needed. Two control display panels are standard for even more
monitoring convenience. Just set it and forget it!
The MPC 5000 is fully programmable in the field by the owner
or technician without special tools or computer connection.
With its "mission critical" design, the MPC 5000 is engineered
to keep the machine running even in the event of a plugged filter
or critical alarm state. If the MPC 5000 senses a dirty filter or
high pressure alarm state, it simply switches to "low" mode and
keeps on running.
The MKII is fitted with an industrial high quality product water
diversion valve that has a manual bypass in case of an electrical
fault. The system also has a full manual override in the rare event
of a total control failure.
Dynamic Modular Design Installs Easily
The Newport 700 and 1000 MKII can be mounted in a variety
of configurations to meet the needs of almost any vessel.
Designed with easy installation in mind, the system modules are
pre-plumbed and pre-wired to save time and installation costs.
All Spectra systems come with a complete installation kit, adding
value and saving additional time in parts procurement.
Z-Brane™ Keeps Your 700 or 1000 MKII Clean
Z-Brane™ keeps your system clean without chemicals. Complete
the Newport 700 or 1000 MKll with a Z-Brane™. The revolutionary
Z-Brane™ technology keeps the MKII clean and free
of bio-fouling and scaling. Cleaning with chemicals substantially
shortens the usable life of reverse osmosis membranes. The ZBrane
™ eliminates the need for harsh chemicals.
