Maintain SOx compliance with Exhaust Gas Cleaning

Gas scrubber water analysis represents Hach’s newest application with years of successful runtime across multiple manufacturers. Hach’s robust and reliable portfolio of instruments has been proven for gas scrubber applications, including process and handheld measurements of turbidity, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH), pH, dissolved oxygen, and conductivity. Hach service engineers have provided onboard calibration, maintenance, and repair support globally.

Parameters Relevant to Gas Scrubber Water Analysis

  • pH
  • Conductivity
  • PAH/Oil in Water
  • Turbidity
  • Free Chlorine, Total Chlorine
  • Alkalinity
  • Suspended Solids, TDS

Exhaust Gas Cleaning

Are you or your customers ready for 2020 IMO SOx regulations?

With the decision to move the global sulfur limit to 0.50% m/m (mass/mass) in 2020, ship owners will require maximum uptime for additional analytical equipment. With insuffi cient water analysis experts on staff , ship owners will need to partner with a vendor that can off er proven reliability of products and expert service on a global scale.

Working with a vendor not well-versed in water analytics, or a vendor without a global footprint that has the resources to scale to your needs can result in downtime, a risk of fi nes and an impact on the environment.

By partnering with Hach, ship owners can save time and resources with preventative maintenance, calibration, and repair services for exhaust gas cleaning monitoring solutions.

Avoid fines with efficient ballast water disinfection

Hach has the expertise to provide the right solutions for ballast water monitoring to maintain compliance with regulatory requirements, including treatment systems utilizing UV disinfection or chemical disinfection. Hach continues to work closely with the maritime industry to develop instrumentation that meets the needs of the wide variety of stakeholders, including ship owners and operators, shipbuilders, Port State Control and other regulatory stakeholders, who are impacted by these regulations.
