    • Katadyn PowerSurvivor 40E is the world‘s smallest electrical desalinator and the PowerSurvivor-40E is the only power watermaker that converts to manual operation in emergencies
      • Special Manual Feature:
        • The PowerSurvivor-40E is the only power watermaker that converts to manual operation in case of a power loss
        • Its capability for manual operation is useful when normal ship's power is unavailable
        • Note: The PowerSurvivor 40E watermaker was never intended to be part of a vessel's "Abandon Ship" equipment
    • Simplicity: The 40E contains 40% fewer parts than its popular predecessor, the PowerSurvivor-35
      • Simplified construction and rugged design make the 40E remarkably easy to install, operate and maintain.
    • Compactness: Extraordinarily compact, the 40E can be installed in the nooks and crannies otherwise unusable in many yachts.
    • Efficiency: No watermaker draws so few amps.Using only 4 amps, the 40E can run for extended periods on alternative power alone.
    • Durability:The heart of the 40E is the rugged stainless high-pressure pump. Armed for the rigors of the marine environment, this watermaker is built to last. We're so certain, we've covered it with a superior warranty: 3 years on most components


    • Technology: Reverse Osmosis
    • Output (+/- 15%): 1.50 gallons per hour (5.70 l/h )
    • Salt rejection (avarage): 98.4% (min. 96%)
    • Power requirements: 12 volts DC / 4 amps
    • Dimensions: 16.34" x 15.37" x 6.71" (41.5 x 39.0 x 17.04 cm)

    * Katadyn Desalinators are built to rigorous specifications and designed to produce potable freshwater from clean seawater using minimal power

    • It is simple to install and operate and, with reasonable care and maintenance, can be expected to provide years of useful service
    • Silt or Sand can damage the membrane and internal pump components if not removed during pre-filtration
      • If you must regularly process such water, consider installing a Silt Reduction Kit
      • Foul Intake Seawater can seriously affect the quality of the product freshwater
      • The watermaker membrane is designed to remove the impurities found in clean, open ocean seawater
      • Processing of seawater with other kinds of impurities may not remove those impurities and may damage or destroy the membrane
    • See Maintenance and Service: Pre-filter Maintenance in the owner's manual for information on typical problems associated with foul water intake
    • Customer-supplied Equipment:
      • Every installation represents a unique challenge
      • You or your installer will have to provide:
        • A reliable source of clean seawater for input to the prefilter 3-way valve
        • Plumbing to an appropriate drain location for the reject brine water
        • A plumbing solution for your freshwater collection tank
