One component, in particular, needs to be carefully selected to ensure safe and efficient sulphur removal. The Pump!

Today DESMI is working together with the world's biggest suppliers of scrubber solutions and removing sulphur from exhaust gas is a chemical process that demands a lot more than just installing the usual type of pump.

The time is now

IMO has set a global limit for sulphur in fuel oil used on board ships of 0.50% m/m (mass by mass) from 1 January 2020. This will significantly reduce the amount of sulphur oxide emanating from ships and should have major health and environmental benefits for the world, particularly for populations living close to ports and coasts.

First-mover advantage

DESMI’s scrubber-class products are finding favour in the industry among leading global turnkey EGCS suppliers. Such companies are the suppliers of choice for scrubber systems that incorporate all the elements of a successful solution. In the system the scrubber pumps play a very important role.

The scrubber pump’s key task – to move liquid from one place to another – is the same as for other pumps on board a vessel. But removing sulphur from exhaust gas involves high temperatures and varying PH levels. Faced with such properties, an ordinary seawater or freshwater pump wouldn’t make it to the first scheduled servicing date. Instead, its surfaces are likely to be eaten away in a matter of weeks.
