Scrubber Pumps Article

30 September 2019
Scrubbers are used in industrial and marine processes in order to reduce the level of harmful emissions being emitted into the environment. The design is similar to the way AdBlue is used in a car with a liquid being sprayed onto emissions to capture and neutralize harmful gas particles. There are four different types of scrubber which are open loop, closed loop/hybrid, wet scrubber and dry scrubber.

Methanol Article

30 September 2019
Methanol is a high octane clean fuel which meets the required 2020 emission limits due to its low content of Sox and Nox meaning it has close to zero emissions during combustion. It remains liquid at ambient temperature which reduces the need for expensive refrigeration equipment as with LNG. It is highly corrosive and so specialist materials are required to pump it. In the future, a derivative of methanol – biomethanol produced by gasification and pyrolysis is likely to take over.

Low Sulphur Fuel Oil

30 September 2019
Low Sulphur Fuel Oil (LSFO) is increasingly being used in shipping due to emission regulations within shipping. Emission Control Areas have been introduced by the International Maritime Organisation meaning ships which travel within such areas must reduce their emissions.One way to make this possible is for ships engines to use LSFO. LSFO has a very low viscosity typically close to 1cp but not only does it have a low viscosity, but its lubricity is also very poor meaning pump internals must be s...
