The FCI Advantage

Exclusive & Uncompromising Engineering

Intuitive engineering guarantees the longevity, durability and performance of every FCI Watermakers unit. Our system design optimizes the flow of water, while industrial-quality materials employed throughout the reverse osmosis unit ensure robust operations. Take a look at the features that make an FCI watermaker the world’s finest.

Pressure Vessels

FCI is so confident of the superiority of our engineering that we offer a lifetime warranty on every pressure vessel tube and have never yet had a claim.
Four stainless steel shafts surround the vessel plus a superior end plug design is resistant to loosening, leaks, cracking and salt water crystallization due to natural vessel vibration and water pressure.

Superior Materials

Industrial-quality materials ensure the durability and longevity of every FCI water maker. Our systems are engineered with durable parts made from quality metals like 316 stainless steel, instead of plastic which provides strength and reliable operation by preventing corrosion as well as undo wear and tear.

High Performance Motor

Designed to withstand wet marine environments, FCI's washdown duty motor is epoxy coated with neoprene gaskets and 316 stainless steel shafts that protect it from moisture, rot and rust. FCI motors will outlast competing brands, which use inferior general or industrial duty motors with lesser features, like painted housing, paper gaskets and standard steel shafts.

Membranes

FCI uses standard size membranes on ALL our marine systems designs. This means replacement parts are readily available when you need them, and they perform as expected.

Competitors modify their membranes to odd shapes and sizes, forcing you to buy only through them. This results in higher replacement costs and limited availability. In addition, these modifications can cause questionable water quality and membrane performance issues.

Fresh Water Flush Included

Fresh water flush is an included feature on all FCI systems, while most competing brands consider this necessary function an accessory and charge extra. What's more, with our UROC technology, your fresh water flush is automatic and fully programmable-- you control the frequency and duration to suit your needs under divergent water conditions and usage.

Open Frame System

Our open-framed systems are designed to facilitate due-diligence checks and routine, onsite maintenance, unlike competing closed-framed systems which require a complicated disassembly that makes even a simple visual inspection literally impossible.

Noise Control

FCI engineers one of the industry's quietest watermaking systems thanks to its open frame construction, four-point vibration isolating mounts and low RPM high-pressure pump. Competing systems amplify noise due to closed-frame construction and high-pressure pumps running at double the RPMs which creates a systemic, throbbing resonance throughout the vessel.

NEMA 4X Electronic Enclosure

Unlike some competing products that do not have enclosed electronics, FCI water makers subscribe to this high-quality standard to protect both the operator against hazardous parts and the equipment from dust, corrosion, water and the elements.

Clear and Simple Controls

One-touch startup and customization. Automatic audio and visual alerts. Fingertip data and an onscreen help menu. UROC enables you to instantly install, run and modify your system to meet your minute-by-minute needs.

Sure-Touch Operation

Reliable tactile feedback from FCI's watermaker control panel eliminates operator error and provides automatic programming with at-a-glance monitoring. The tried and true technology and digital displays are resilient to all boating conditions, unlike touchscreens that potentially fail in high-temperature climates or engine rooms.

High Pressure Regulators

FCI uses literally the highest quality high-pressure regulator. These regulators are built to last, as all of the working components are 316 stainless steel. Additionally, once the pressure is set on these regulators it remains consistent, unlike lesser quality pressure regulators, which have a tendency to creep up.

High/Low Pressure Transducers

FCI's 316L stainless steel transducers offer users multiple function settings and continuous digital readouts. The user can customize the system to meet specific needs and effectively monitor the operation of the system during use. Many other brands use switches instead of transducers, which limit a user's regulation to "on" and "off" functions only.

Brine and Product Flow Sensors

While users of competing products can only rely on a digital system readout to determine how the water maker is functioning, FCI's Max-Q and larger capacity systems enable visual confirmation that there is actual product and brine water flow in addition to the digital information relayed via the UROC control panel.

External Oil Drain Service Valve

This convenient feature is not available on most competing brands. On FCI's Max-Q and larger capacity systems, this efficient feature enables you to drain high-pressure pump oil from the bottom of the oil reservoir with the simple turn of a valve. Competing systems require extra equipment to drain the oil from the top of the pump, which is not only a hassle, but it also stirs up the sediment in the reservoir.

Commercial Pre-filter

Commercial quality filtration is standard with our commercial pre-filter housing and pleated 5 micron filter.

The Benefits

Setting the Course for the Future of Watermaking

FCI Watermakers does more than build and sell marine reverse osmosis units. We invent the technology and advance the systems that are the future of marine desalination around the planet. Over three decades ago, FCI pioneered the integration of the UROC (Universal Reverse Osmosis Controller), which allowed features and automation never before seen in a marine water maker. These attributes have become standards in today’s marine desalinators and commercial systems, including one-touch commands, multiple station operation and remote system control and monitoring. Today, FCI continues to provide boaters and offshore industries with products that are always ahead of the curve. As both engineers and craftsmen, we specialize in dependable, high-performance and value-driven marine watermakers, and are proud of the thousands of continuously operating RO units that have been cruising the globe for decades.
