• Effective Gas Cleaning Systems

    With years of experience in exhaust gas cleaning systems for marine applications, we have
    developed very efficient, safe and certified SOx scrubbers for eliminating air emissions.

Our MEP Inline SOx Scrubber

The MEP inline scrubber system is designed in a compact form that saves considerable space, which is very significant in smaller vessels and in retrofitted solutions.

Our inline scrubber design offers prominent benefits over conventional exhaust gas cleaning systems, while the lower cost structure of the new design offers CAPEX advantages.

With just one scrubber system per engine, installation is faster and easier, which subsequently decreases the out-of-service time for the vessel, and the operational flexibility is improved as well.

Operates in both an Open Loop and Hybrid System

The MEP inline scrubber system operates as a conventional MEP open loop scrubber system but has three water inlets in the main body of the scrubber, as opposed to two in the conventional system. The exhaust flows enter from the bottom and exits at the top, with water being sprayed in three stages in a counter flow to the exhaust.

A MEP designed water trap prevents the scrubbing water from entering the engine. The inline configuration can be offered on the MEP hybrid scrubber system as well.

WHY CHOOSE A ME PRODUCTION SOLUTION?

The big advantage that scrubbing has over low sulphur fuel is that it allows operators to continue to run on cheaper fuel oil and still be able to comply with the sulphur limits. This means that the scrubber will pay for itself in the form of fuel cost savings, with the return on investment depending on the price difference between HFO and MGO.

Ultra 254 SMO

EN 1.4547, ASTM UNS S31254EN 1.4547, ASTM UNS S31254.

254 SMO is a high-alloy austenitic stainless steel developed for use in seawater and other aggressive chloride-bearing media and with extremely high resistance to both uniform and localized corrosion.

Cost-efficient and eco-friendly that meets IMO regulations 

ME production´s solutions are the most cost-efficient and eco-friendly solutions on the market. ME Production´s solutions offer total compliance with IMO SOx emission limits that came into force in ECAs in 2015 and worldwide coming in 2020.

Lower fuel costs with heavy fuel oil

With our exhaust gas cleaning systems ships can continue to run on the cheaper heavy fuel oil and still meet IMO emission requirements instead of switching to the more expensive low Sulphur fuel. This means significant fuel savings.

Quick return on investment – For all types of vessels

Fuel savings will pay for the investment in an exhaust gas cleaning system. However, the payback time will of course vary depending on a variety of factors e.g. fuel prices, engine size, fuel consumption, time spend in ECAs and running hours.

ME Production offer turnkey solutions suitable for new buildings as well as retrofits. Our solutions fit all types of engines and boilers.

Customized solutions – Easy-to-use – Online access

We offer customized solutions designed to meet customer-specific requirements. Our system offers an extremely user-friendly interface with touch screen control.

As the only system on the market, ME Production solutions offer easy online access to emission data.

We work only with the best

We work closely with European manufacturers of high-end products. We draw on their extensive expertise within the field, sharing knowledge and experience, to ensure our customers the very best solutions.

How a Mep SOx Scrubber works

  • 1

    SOx Scrubber Unit

    The SOx Scrubber Unit contains a carefully designed multi array of water jet nozzles which enables our solution to efficiently wash the exhaust gas in order to remove SOx and carbon particles.

  • 2

    Continuous Emission Monitoring System

    The monitoring system uses an optical, noncontact, cross-duct technique. A light beam is sent across the duct or stack to be measured, and the captured light is sent through an optical fiber cable to an analyzer. The analyzer measures SO2, CO2 and NOx concentrations using UV and IR absorption, DOAS. The sulphur content in the bunker oil is measured based on the SO2 /CO2 ratio in ppm/Vol.%.

  • 3

    Continuous Water Monitoring System

    A water monitoring solution includes a monitoring system at both the inlet and outlet of the scrubber. All sensor modules can be verified and/or calibrated on-site using certified standards. The system has achieved a marine type approval for monitoring of all me-dia (PAH, turbidity, and pH/temperature) required in MEPC. 259(68).

  • 4

    Control system

    The control equipment monitors pumps, temperatures, flow, water treatment and ex-haust gas composition in complete compliance with MARPOL Annex VI. The control system includes easy to use HMI.

  • 5

    Process tank

    Process water for the scrubber unit is taken from the process tank. The process water is also returned to this tank. Fresh water is added continuously, and wastewater is taken out for wastewater treatment.

  • 6

    Process pump

    Serves as the primary seawater pump in open loop and as recirculation pump for exhaust gas scrubbing water in closed loop mode.

  • 7

    Cooling pump

    The cooling system is based on seawater being pumped into a heat exchanger and back to the sea in a closed system without any connection to the internal process water flows.

  • 8

    Booster pump

    Ensures the exhaust gas is cooled down quickly, before it enters the scrubber tower. This pump allows you to boost the water pressure to receive a high amount of water through injection nozzles.

  • 9

    Flange cooling at exhaust gas pipes

    Allows the system to have a “run-dry” capability that enab- les it to handle hot exhaust gas, even if the scrubber is not running.

  • 10

    Titanium Heat Exchanger

    Cools down the scrubbing water when running in closed loop mode to ensure that the exhaust gas temperature exiting the scrubber unit is as low as 45°C. The low exhaust temperature of 45°C is also maintained in open loop mode.

  • 11

    Alkaline Dosing Unit

    Is a custom-built dosing and monitoring system that can utilize Natrium Carbonate (Na2CO3), Magnesium Oxide (MgO) or Caustic Soda (NaOH) depending on the requirements of the preferred vessel profile.

  • 12

    Wastewater Separator

    Treats and separates naturally occurring salts, carbon particles and unburnt fuel from the process water when running in closed loop mode.

  • 13

    Discharge pump

    Discharges the cleaned process water from the holding tank and into the sea when in closed loop mode.
