Hot Water heat exchanger

Postby flem on Wed Jun 26, 2013 9:26 am

Can I retrofit my marine application Genie 150 with the "Hot Water Option"?




After shutdown the unit continues to run (loap) and slowly consums the fuel. Trouble shoot?

To retrofit for heat recovery, you'll need a pump rated to circulate the coolant, a thermostat so you don't over cool the engine. Then you need to tap the coolant tank for in and out fittings.

The fuel line between the shut off solenoid and the injector pump needs to be as short as possible so there is not much residual fuel left in the hose.

Does "Ample Power" still offer a kit for this conversion?

No, there wasn't enough demand.

Can you provide a list of Supplier for the for the components and/ or any documentation for the retrofit?
