By using YMT scrubbers ship owners can continue to operate on heavy fuel oil instead of more costly marine gas oil while staying below the strict IMO requirements regarding sulphur emissions. The YMT scrubbers make it simple to meet new environmental regulations by replacing your ship’s exhaust silencer – no structural modifications required.
YMT scrubbers are able to operate in Dry mode, Open loop and Closed loop as per customer requirements. Thanks to our scrubber’s small footprint and low weight, they are suitable for virtually any kind of vessel, whether it is a new build or a retrofit and can be custom-made for any engine size, both 2-stroke and 4-stroke engines. The scrubber requires about the same space as the silencer it is replacing. When operating in closed loop. the YMT scrubber applies harmless Magnesium Oxide as alkali additive, in lieu of the hazardous Caustic Soda - Safety is always our top priority.
Key point – benefits;
- Proven reduction of SOx and PM, compliant with MARPOL Annex VI –MEPC 58 and 59
- Hybrid scrubber - both open and closed loop operation
- An extremely small footprint
- Low weight resulting in minimal change to stability conditions
- Energy-efficient operation
- Use of Magnesium Oxide as alkali ensures highest safety and better efficiency over Caustic Soda
