As a scrubber generates polluted wash water, it is essential to have a water treatment unit (WTU). A WTU can remove harmful matter stemming from the combustion process to comply with IMO discharge limits on scrubber wash water and fight ocean acidification. A WTU can take various shapes and utilize several technologies. Still, with more than 20 years of experience within the filtration industry, we have thoroughly refined our ceramic membrane technology, which delivers significant advantages in marine scrubber water treatment. Let us dive into the technology of a scrubber water treatment unit.
A scrubber water treatment unit can remove polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH), particulate matter (PM), and other unwanted particles. This process benefits the environment by fighting ocean acidification.
A closed-loop scrubber requires a marine scrubber water treatment system to treat the bleed flow from the scrubber’s process tank. Learn more about the differences between open-loop scrubbers, closed-loop scrubbers, and hybrid scrubbers.
