Marine water and waste systems manufacturer, Whale, has launched a new 8 litre Grey Waste Tank with Intelligent Control.

Grey waste tanks are generally used in larger power and sailboats, where the grey water is collected before being pumped overboard or into a central storage tank. This latest release from the company, based in Bangor in Northern Ireland, builds on the success of its 20 litre tank.

“Working in close partnership with key boat builders, we see the key trends toward marine vessels with more and more complicated water systems and multiple outlets- sometimes even including dishwashers and baths on board,” explained Simon McFarland, Whale’s marine product manager.

“Whale has listened to the positive feedback on our 20 litre Grey Tank and continues to expand our marine range with innovative products, ideal for vessels with complex requirements.”

The new 8 litre Grey Waste Tank with Intelligent Control, handles typical shower and galley sink waste up to 90°C even in complex multiple outlet systems. Models are available with a choice of one or two sensors. The double sensor option allows boat builders to fit an additional pump to one tank for a compact high capacity solution, or a high-level alarm.

Triple seal technology

Whale’s triple seal technology prevents water ingress through three key features. Firstly, the electronics are housed in a single piece moulded lid design which incorporates the sensors. Secondly, a splash-proof seal prevents bilge water from entering the sensor housing and thirdly the sensors are fully encased in a highly adhesive potting compound.

The units have four features said to assist with installation. These are easy wiring; moulded symbols showing best practice, hose and drill diameter size guides; inlet and outlet ports shaped for drilling accuracy and metal inserts in the tank which assist with pump fitting.
