Rivertrace launches Smart ESM Wash Water Monitor for Scrubbers

(Posted on 24/04/18)

Rivertrace, an ISO9001 Quality-Assured Company and market leader with over 30 years’ experience of water monitoring, has launched its innovative SMART ESM monitor.
 
With the pending sulphur cap regulations in sight, a popular solution for shipowners to ensure compliance is to install an exhaust gas cleaning system (EGCS), also known as scrubbers. Wet scrubber systems use wash water to remove the pollutants from the exhaust gas, and the wash water being discharged must be monitored at all times to ensure it is within the limits set by the regulating body.
 
The Smart ESM developed by Rivertrace, is a wash water monitor that is suitable for both the inlet and outlet of a wet exhaust gas cleaning system, measuring and recording PAH, Turbidity, Temperature and pH, on open-loop, closed-loop and hybrid scrubber systems. The Smart ESM is fully compliant with MEPC 259(68) and provides reliable information to ensure compliance with the worldwide SOx limits.

The Smart ESM has a large 10” touch screen display which provides a flexible user interface and data is relayed to the ship’s main control system via an Ethernet connection and 4-20 mA analogue outputs and has the ability to interact with other systems using Modbus protocols. The monitor provides onscreen graphs showing either live data or historic hourly, daily or weekly figures. Data can be emailed automatically anywhere in the world for accurate record keeping. The monitor also provides automatic cleaning of the optical path to ensure continual accuracy.
 
The Smart ESM has been developed to support all scrubber systems and include a broad selection of inbuilt analogue and digital outputs, making Rivertrace the ‘Partner for Compliance’ for all OEMs. Rivertrace adopt a truly flexible and accommodating approach to how they work with, and service, each partnership with the OEMs, taking into consideration the differing designs, sizes and target markets of each supplier.

Mike Coomber, Managing Director of Rivertrace said: “We are excited to launch the Smart ESM which is the latest in our innovative range of monitoring products. The 2020 global sulphur limit is an important milestone for our industry and we are delighted that we are able to offer such a positive contribution to ensuring the ongoing compliance to new regulations which will reduce harmful impacts of shipping on the environment. We are working in partnership with a number of OEMs ensuring we supply a complimentary and complete solution.”
