ME Production scrubber system
To meet the demands of our customers ME Production has developed two standard scrubber system designs. ME Production can offer the Inline scrubber system and the U-turn scrubber system design. Both scrubber designs have some strong benefits depending on vessel type and size. Both ME Production scrubber system designs can be utilized for Open loop, Closed loop and Hybrid scrubber systems.
You find a more detailed comparison of the two scrubber system design below.
Inline scrubber (I-type)
The trademark design of MEP –
uniquely designed for drymode
operation in combination with
Inline scrubber is a perfect fit where
space is limited, and the project
requires custom solutions.
Our Inline scrubber is shipped fully
assembled with insulation, and all
Ideal design choice for newbuildings
or retrofits with space in funnel to
make exhaust system with bypass
Simple design with fewer
components – drymode not
applicable as well as 90% insulation.
Shares proven concept of inline
design – packed bed ensures
compliance and minimal wear
Scrubber system – SOx reduction
The reduction of Sulphur oxide (SOx) emissions from marine vessels has been an international priority since 2005. The first IMO regulations to reduce SOx emissions from ships was made in 2005, under Annex VI of the International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships – known as the MARPOL Convention.
Since January 1st 2020, the limit for Sulphur in fuel oil used on board ships operating outside emission control areas (ECA) is reduced to 0.50% m/m (mass by mass).
If the vessel operates in emission control areas (ECA) submission can be achieved using low Sulphur fuel, or by using exhaust gas cleaning SOx scrubber systems.
