The MEP U-type scrubber is the “classic” version of a MEP scrubber and often it’s the best choice for most vessels. Therefore, the majority of vessels is designed in a U-shaped configuration where the absorber and jet sections are divided by a natural water trap.
Compared to the MEP inline scrubber, the foot print in a MEP U-type scrubber is wider in width and shorter in height. U-type is particular chosen of installation as it offered the best fit for the space on board, as well as the possibility of operating in bypass mode.
In a MEP U-type scrubber system each exhaust gas discharge medium has its own bypass line, and dry mode is not applicable. Packing is only used in the inside of the scrubber.
