The QL water heater is available in 20, 22, 30, 40 and 60L (5 - 16 gallons) sizes and in 110V or 220V water heater. The tank is made completely in acid resistant stainless steel, which makes it very suitable for the marine environment. The design and materials also meet the highest sanitary requirements. The QL Volvo Penta water heaters are insulated using polyurethane foam, a material that contains a lot of air and thus reduces heat dissipation. The insulation is extra thick on the upper panel and helps keep the water hot long after it has been heated.  Thanks to the QL water heaters innovative compact plastic casing and integrated brackets these units occupy less space than equivalent cylindrical models with separate fastening brackets. They also feature greater security, like five sturdy fixing points with no sharp edges.
QL is using electric heating elements in incoloy which have a much longer life compared to copper and have the great advantage of not being damaged if switched on electrically without any water in the tank.

The QL air heater extracts heat from the engine's cooling system, which would otherwise be wasted, and transfers it into the cabin. A fan circulates air through a heat exchanger. The air heater makes it possible to make use of the engine closed-circuit cooling system without additional water pipes and radiators.
Transferring the heat through a heat exchanger allows the heated air to be quickly sent to where it's needed most. For example to defrost / demist the windshield, or warm up the cabin or control position. Four outlets are supplied that can be connected with air hoses. The standard outlets are 55 mm diameter. The airflow can be set at three different speeds.
The QL air heater is highly efficient and can be installed vertically or horizontally. Its compactness makes it easy to install almost anywhere. The selection of materials; stainless steel for the casing and copper / brass for the heat exchanger, ensures long service in a harsh onboard atmosphere.
The QL Volvo Penta air heaters come in two sizes: 5 and 10 kW. Available for 12V or 24V supply; it consumes very little power. Its low noise level is another advantage. The air heater can be installed above the engine and any air trapped in the coolant can be released through a separate bleed valve.
Optional extras include air hoses, hose connections and various types of air valves.
