Since sulfur is a component of the heavy oil used as fuel for ships, sulfur oxides (SOx) are emitted in the exhaust gas. As a major contributor to air pollution and acid rain, SOx emissions are regulated by the International Maritime Organization (IMO). For ship operators, however, switching to low-sulfur fuel is a huge burden owing to the high price of the fuel.
MACOGA supplies exhaust gas Exhaust Gas Scrubber Expansion Joints for this application allowing clients to comply with SOx emission regulations while continuing to use conventional heavy oil as fuel.
This time we have successfully designed, manufactured and tested a large number of Single Untied and Universal Untied Expansion Joints for a Japanese world leading manufacturer of Gas Scrubbers.
