Protection: Scrubber wash water
Following the IMO 2020 Global Sulphur cap regulations, shipowners around the world, have been occupied with conforming and preparing their vessels.
Scrubbers form a new challenge to the shipowners who now have to handle a system with highly corrosive wash water from the scrubbing process thorough their vessel.
As such the scrubber tank is often made of high-grade stainless steel, and the pipework is constructed of GRP pipes that do provide higher resistance against the wash water. But there are still a few places where metal comes into contact with the wash water. The Scrubber overboard outlet, and the vessels hull around the outlet.
Wencon Hi-Temp coating is a solvent free epoxy coating that provides protection against the sulfuric acid content and low PH values in the wash water.
