Scrubber Technology. Scrubbers are robust and effective Sox abetment devices to be used for the main engines but also for the auxiliary engines and the boilers using water as a medium for sulphur absorption. Valmet has developed a scrubber technology with unique features to enable a more sustainable operating environment for the shipping industry.
SCRUBBER Technology provides the superior scrap removal and unmatched sheet control necessary to virtually eliminates scrap in the load and blank skewing caused by impinged scrap or loss of sheet control through the vibrator section. Scrubber technologies have progressed greatly. Generally speaking the main chemical is calcium carbonate.
SOx scrubbing is an attractive way to meet the regulations of the International Maritime Organization and minimize the operational costs of ships.
New scrubber packing designs provide for greatly increased mass transfer transfer from the gas to liquid phase and for more uniform distribution of the scrubbing solution throughout the packing section. Scrubbers or Exhaust Gas Cleaning Systems EGCS are used to remove particulate matter and harmful components such as sulphur oxides SOx and nitrogen oxides NOx from the exhaust gasses generated as a result of combustion processes in marine engines to implement pollution control. Alfa Laval is at the forefront of marine scrubber technology thanks to hundreds of successful installations over the past decade. Chemical scrubbers gas scrubbers are a diverse group of air pollution control devices that can be used to remove some particulates andor gases from industrial exhaust streams.
