According to SINTEF, scrubbers are the most climate-friendly mean of 2020 compliance and, as an additional benefit, they save more lives by reducing particle pollution.Read brochure Play video
The PureteQ Maritime Scrubber System is the most energy-efficient scrubber system on the market. It is available as open loop, hybrid ready and fully hybrid (closed loop, with and without bleed-off). On top of that, it is the most reliable, safe and user-friendly scrubber system in the industry. An innovative mindset enables us to continually improve the system and ease its instalment and operational features.
The PureteQ scrubber system has more safety features than any other scrubber system on the market.
Complete, secure remote accessibility enables PureteQ marine engineers to access and assist crews.
The PureteQ Maritime Scrubber System has low power consumption due to a patented hydrodynamic fluid distribution and an open tower construction, which enables low back pressure. It comes with a state-of-the- art control system with complete remote accessibility and an energy optimisation programme. It features the best, most reliable components from renowned suppliers and it is reasonably priced. All of this ensures low operational expenditures (OPEX), a short Return On Investment (ROI) and superior lifelong performance.
PureteQ PureServ is our dedicated service organization. Our marine engineers are available 24/7 and dispatched from Europe or Asia. Our Service Team has received extensive training to assist shipowners in safeguarding continuous operation, reliability, and MARPOL compliance of their scrubber systems. This entails expert support and guidance for all Scrubber Systems on-site or via the safe PureteQ remote system, depending on the ship’s conditions and the client’s requirements.
We offer fairly-priced service contracts designed to meet shipowner’s specific needs. You only pay for what you get.
Due to our in-depth knowledge and expertise within Exhaust Gas Cleaning, we also provide service and support to other brands of scrubber systems.
PureteQ has developed a Windows-based Human Machine Interface (HMI) control system that can be operated manually or automatically according to customer preferences and crew skills. Remote accessibility permits PureteQ staff to perform system upgrades and assist the crew with online troubleshooting – and all of this at a very low cost without physical interference. The open data protocols provide shipowners with easy integration of compliance and performance data into other systems, as well as easy reporting, which saves manhours.
Some shipowners prefer that PureteQ Marine Engineers monitor the scrubber system and provide compliance and performance reporting, as well as online guidance to the crew.
Most of the more than one hundred systems on order and delivered are open-loop hybrid-ready solutions, but quite a few are complete hybrid-loop systems. Hybrid-ready means that the system is prepared for hybrid operation to give shipowners and operators the opportunity for a less costly upgrade to a complete hybrid system, if so required later on.
The difference between this configuration and open loop is that a water-treatment facility and some additional equipment are added. This enables the recirculation of wash water in the scrubber system and the discharge of a small amount of treated water into the sea or a holding tank, depending on regional and local regulations. PureteQ delivers scrubber systems to universities which, together with privately-owned companies, conduct research into new water-treatment systems. The water-treatment facility is designed to conform to the ship’s specific operational pattern and is available at different price levels depending on the type of system. PureteQ source only delivers the best and best-tested brands. Some are designed for shorter periods of operation and others for permanent operation in a closed loop mode.
PureteQ guides the shipowner throughout the process from initial design to final approval of the system and installation by the Flag State. The key to a successful project is close communication with all stakeholders, which is why PureteQ has developed a state-of-the-art project management system based on SharePoint. This means that PureteQ monitors progress and the actual state of all documents to keep the project on track. The designated project manager and his/her team guide every installation to optimize quality and efficiency during the installation process, in order to minimize the off-hire period. Daily progress reports are made to include documentation of the installation. As the devil is in the detail, everything is double-checked to ensure that the system remains operational for many years. PureteQ employees are not afraid to get their hands dirty. The project manager also handles commissioning and sea trials.
