Exhaust Scrubber Wash Water Monitor
Exhaust Gas Cleaning Systems (EGCS) is an approved method of reducing the sulphur emissions to under 0.5%, in line with the new sulphur cap regulations which came into force on 1st Jan 2020. For this, exhaust fumes are drenched in seawater, which absorbs the sulphur dioxide, creating a chemical reaction to take place to turn this into sulphate, a naturally occurring salt in seawater.
The washwater discharge is then treated and discharged only when it has gone through a monitoring system to confirm it meets the regulation standards for release. This monitors PAH for oil content and pH for acidity, as well as turbidity for solid content.
