New Webasto Hepa Filters Help Clean Air Onboard
Webasto is introducing its compact, lightweight HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) H14 Filtration Systems at the International WorkBoat Show in New Orleans, Louisiana. The filtration systems, engineered to remove 99.995% of airborne infections and contaminates, including SARS/COVID-19-sized particulates, are critical in helping prevent the spread of airborne bacterial and viral organisms in confined spaces.
With a high air-exchange rate, Webasto HEPA H14 Filtration Systems are highly effective at reducing viral loads in ambient air. Self-contained and designed to complement current onboard HVAC systems, the filtration systems also feature integrated automatic filter monitoring. Easily installed, Webasto HEPA H14 Filtration Systems require a 12V power source. Integrated brackets make them easy to mount. At only 70db, they’re exceptionally quiet.
The HEPA H14 Filtration Systems comply with European Medical Device Directive CE 47/2007 and meet air filtration guidelines of the World Health Organization, U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control, and the International Air Transport Association.
HEPA H14 Filtration System Model HFT 300 has an airflow of 175 cfm. At 24-inches L x 8-inches dia. and 6.8 lbs., it’s ideal for medium-sized spaces. It draws a mere 7.1 amps. The larger HFT 600 model moves 350 cfm of air, while drawing only 14.2 amps. Designed for larger areas, it measures 48-inches L x 8-inches dia. and weighs 12.1 lbs.
New Packaging For E-Z Snap, Same Proven Results
Between dirt, corrosion, UV rays and fabric shrinkage, snaps, zippers and hinges on outdoor equipment often become virtually impossible to use. Iosso E-Z Snap – Zipper & Snap Lubricant is a one-step product that frees the most stubborn hardware. And now, the proven formula has updated packaging for a new look.
Made in the USA, Iosso E-Z Snap – Zipper & Snap Lubricant lubricates and reduces friction on plastic and metal fittings. It keeps zippers and snaps from locking up and tearing fabric. The waterproof formula won’t rinse away, nor dissipate in hot weather. Without solvents, silicone or Teflon, it’s perfect for anyplace extra glide is needed but oil is inappropriate, such as a drawer slide.
A small dab is applied to the hardware and worked in. While most effective with clean parts, it can be used as needed – especially if the stuck fitting is prohibiting the equipment’s use. A 1.5 oz. tube of Iosso E-Z Snap – Zipper & Snap Lubricant costs $5.80.
Hubbell 100A Cable Sets Built For Years Of Hard Use
It’s not enough that a cordset simply supplies electricity to a boat; it needs to be overbuilt to deliver safe and reliable power.

Inside the Hubbell 100A, 125/250V plug, a high-impact thermoset contact carrier is arc- and heat-resistant for maximum safety. Nickel-plated solid brass pins and sleeves provide a reliable electrical connection, even when repeatedly used in a corrosive environment.
