Model ME

Shipboard Electric Water Heater

6-120 Gallon Capacity, up to 12 KW, Single Phase

The Hubbell Model ME water heater is specifically designed for marine use and is in USCG conformance and IS ABS Type Approved. The entire water heater is securely fastened to the ship structure by utilizing deck and bulkhead mounting supports. This support system provides a secure and reliable water heater installation. To ensure tank longevity the Model ME water heater is constructed of steel and is internally lined with specially formulated hydrastone cement. The hydrastone cement lining, along with the solid copper-silicon threaded tank openings and a built in heat trap device all ensure a longer lasting, energy efficient water heater that is resistant to the higly corrosive effects of hot water.

When you specify and install a model ME, knowing that it is in conformance with USGC regulations and ABS Type Approved, you will have confidence that the ship owner will be provided with a long lasting, trouble-free source for hot water.

General Specifications

Tank

The Hubbell tank is all welded heavy steel construction designed for 100 psi working pressure and tested to 300 psi. Each tank is centrifugally lined with 1/2" thick seamless high density Hydrastone cement with guaranteed 100% coverage of all steel surfaces. All tank openings are non-ferrous solid copper-silicon and are resistant to the corrosive effects of hot water.

Mounting System

Factory constructed heavy-duty leg supports are integrally welded to the tank for secure deck mounting. Side-sway bulkhead attachment points are provided for added mounting integrity. This mounting support system provides a stable water heater installation for added mounting integrity. This mounting support system provides a stable water heater installation with improved safety compared to a typical water heater secured with a belly-band

Plumbing

3/4" combination cold water inlet and drain, with non-corrosive strata fow diffuser which prevents incoming cold water from mixing too rapidly with the hot water in the tank and assures delivery of more hot water - not lukewarm water.
A 3/4" hot water outlet with a uniquely designed built-in heat trap prevents heated water from radiating through the piping during standby periods.

Electrical

Copper sheathed immersion heating elemtns with low watt density for prolonged life - up to 12 KW in 120, 208, 240, 277, 440 or 480 volt single phase. An adjustable surface thermostat operates in 110-170°F range.
Integral hi-limit with manual reset button for over-temperature protection is factory set at 190°F.
Upper and lower elemnt configurations are factory wired for non-simultaneous operation.

Insulation

Highly efficient 2" thick polyurethane foam insulation exceeds the latest ASHRAE standards for nergy efficiency and heat loss

Jacket

The exterior protective jacket is constructed from high impact composite material which cannot rust or corrode and does not require painting.

Model ME Specific Questions

Is American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) approval needed?

Equipment and specifically water heaters for use in commercial marine applications require special construction features to ensure longevity and proper operation in a marine environment. In addition, the water heater must be constructed in conformance to the Code of Federal Regulations USCG 46 CFR Part 53.01 and the pressure vessel must be designed and constructed to the proper ASME code and stamped. A Hubbell marine water heater is manufactured under a Certificate of Manufacturing Assessment as issued by American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) Here

Is a glass lined tank recommended for marine use?

Not in a commercial marine environment. The real cost of a water heater in a marine environment, especially commercial marine, is the cost of replacement. Therefore, it makes economic sense to install a water heater with a long life expectancy. Hence, glass lined water heaters are not the best choice in a marine environment when a cement lined water heater can typically provide 3 times longer life in comparison.

Which is better for me, a tankless or storage type water heater?

It depends. A tankless water heater is sometimes referred to as a Point-of-Use (POU) or instantaneous water heater. Due to the relative small physical size of a tankless water heater compared to a storage tank water heater, a tankless option can be advantageous from a space saving perspective and can sometimes be installed closer to where you want hot water (hence the term POU). However, tankless heaters are not suited for many applications, so it is critical that before choosing to go tankless you have carefully considered all of the factors that sometimes make the tankless option more complicated and risky compared to a storage type water heater. In particular, you should understand the operational characteristics, maintenance requirements, reparability, and sometimes significant installation requirements of a tankless water heater before making a decision. Tankless units do not store heated water like a storage type water heater; they only heat water as there is demand and therefore must be sized to meet the maximum flow for the application. In some cases a tankless water heater may improve operating efficiency, but possibly at the expense of user comfort. Hubbell tankless water heaters are available in Electric Tankless or Gas Tankless

Can I get my water heater made for horizontal installation?

Yes. Please consult with your Hubbell Sales Engineer.

Why would I want a copper alloy tank for my application?

If your marine application demands the longest life and most reliable operation, then you should consider a solid copper alloy tank for your water heater. This type of tank is constructed from 90/10 copper nickel (or copper silicon 655) alloy for maximum longevity. This copper alloy is highly corrosion resistant even at elevated water temperature and has the most desirable characteristics for use as a water heater tank. This construction is intended to last the life of your ship, and as a result is likely to have the lowest total cost of ownership over th life of the ship when one considers the tremendous cost for removing and replacing a lined steel water heater. Ship owners know all too well the real cost involved of cutting out and replacing equipment. Therefore, the owner motivated to provide the lowest total cost of ownership water heater will benefit when the onboard water heater is specified as copper alloy.

What should I know about Legionella disease?

Legionella is the bacteria responsible for Legionnaire’s Disease, an acute bacterial infection of the lower respiratory tract. This bacterium was first identified in 1977 by the Centers for Disease Control as the cause of an outbreak of pneumonia that caused 34 deaths at a 1976 American Legion Convention in Philadelphia. Pontiac Fever is a less severe, non-pneumonia, flu-like disease that is associated with and likely caused by Legionella bacteria. Legionella is a fairly common water bacterium and has been found to exist widely in many surface water sources including lakes, rivers, streams and ponds. It can also be found in ground water sources and some soils. At the levels found in these naturally occurring sources it typically does not pose a threat to public health. When the bacterium enters a domestic water system it can find an ideal host environment of warm water temperatures (105-115°F), stagnant water areas (isolated storage tanks and dead-end piping legs) and ample food sources (sediment, scale, deposits and biofilm). Under these conditions Legionella can rapidly colonize, forming higher concentrations that can pose the public health threat of Legionnaire’s Disease. There are many methods of controlling colonization of Legionella bacteria. However, a widely accepted and preferred method is to maintain the hot water system storage temperature continually at or above 140°F. Unfortunately, the elevated temperature necessary to minimize the growth of and kill Legionella bacteria has the potential to cause serious thermal shock and scalding injuries. As such, many plumbing engineers will specify that the water heater be set to maintain water temperatures at 140°F or higher to reduce the risk of Legionella, but then specify the appropriate mixing valve to ensure safe delivery of hot water to the fixtures. For a more thorough discussion of Legionella please go to here and the following link to the US Department of Labor OSHA information regarding Legionnaires’ Disease OSHA here
