Dometic offers help on cooling systems affected by Gulf oil spill

Posted on

In response to the Gulf of Mexico oil spill, Dometic Marine issued Guidance Notes regarding the operation of any water-cooled air-conditioning and refrigeration systems affected by oil.

“While the effects of crude oil contamination on water-cooled air-conditioning and refrigeration equipment are not yet thoroughly known, it is recognized that crude oil could be detrimental to the water-cooled equipment typically used on boats,” Dometic Marine president Frank Marciano said in a statement.

The Guidance Notes, which include preventive and corrective actions for equipment protection, are available online.

Dometic also issued a field notice to its network of dealers, distributors, OEMs and manufacturer representatives who may be affected by the spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Boaters operating in or exposed to oil-contaminated water are advised to contact their nearest Dometic dealer for service recommendations.

    There should be a searchable web page set up so everyone who encounters oil contamination can:  a) mention what degree of contamination they encountered, b) describe their equipment, c) say what damage was done-so far or if any, and d) what they did to resolve and whether it worked or not.
    Candid input from many users can help lead to useful do’s and don’ts.

    If Dometic made the files availble to eveyone to save their expensive equipment, they wouldn’t be able to direct them to their dealers to overcharge owners whom overpaid for Dometic/Marine Air Systems to begin with!
