Lasting protection for scrubbers

(Posted on 06/04/20)

Over the last months the Ecospeed coating system was applied on the outlet of the scrubbers of three bulk carriers in Zhoushan, China. A lasting, chemically resistant coating was needed that could withstand the hazardous pollutants of the exhausts and protect the areas surrounding the outlets.

At the start of 2016 the inside of the scrubber was coated with Ecospeed for the first time. The scrubber was located in one of the ballast tanks of the vessel. Since then Ecospeed has been applied on scrubber systems regularly.

Because of the tight regulations on emissions in the shipping industry, the installation of an exhaust scrubber system has become increasingly widespread. This unfortunately has also led to an increase of corrosion damage on scrubber pipes and outlets which results in water ingress in the engine room, ballast tanks and cargo holds.

Ecospeed however is highly chemically resistant. Using the coating to protect the exterior outlets as well as the interiors of scrubbers will prevent corrosion damage and the resulting consequences.

There are also several other benefits that make Ecospeed the perfect choice.

  • The coating system is highly chemically resistant. Taking into account the nature of the process taking place inside the scrubber, this is essential for our customers.
  • Ecospeed lasts the lifetime of a vessel. No repaints will need to be scheduled during future dockings of the ship. This saves on time and money.
  • It is a true biocide-free solution. Independent research has proven that the coating is 100% toxin-free and that there is no negative effect on the water quality or the marine environment at any point of its application or use.

Ecospeed fits in seamlessly with the environmental idea behind scrubber systems. It is a lasting, chemically resistant coating that will withstand the hazardous pollutants and protect the scrubbers for the lifetime of the vessel.

Whenever lasting protection is needed for a ship, Ecospeed offers the best solution. Whether it entails the underwater hull of a vessel or any other part of the ship, applying this coating system will make sure you will not have to worry about corrosion damage. This will save you time and money.
