Quality Materials Essential In Scrubber Installations

- Feb 23, 2020-

Shipowners looking to install marine exhaust gas cleaning systems as way of meeting global sulphur cap requirements need to ensure that manufacturers, shipyards and installers are using quality, high-end materials, members of the Clean Shipping Alliance (CSA) 2020 advised.

Scrubbers have been identified as one of the top choices for complying with the sulphur cap, especially when considering the Return on Invest (RoI). However, numerous concerns have been raised when it comes to the very maintenance of scrubbers and the risk of potential malfunctions, especially when ships are on the open seas.

According to the collective experience of the association members, the quality of materials and coatings used is the most important factor in optimizing EGCS safety and averting any corrosion problems during operation.
