Scrubber Water Testing

Keeping pollution in check and ensuring the dependability of operations

Scrubber Water Testing

As international norms get more stringent, ship owners and ship management companies need to comply with the IMO 2020 guidelines with regards to sulphur emissions into the environment. IMO 2020 limits the sulphur in the fuel oil used on board ships operating outside designated emission control areas to 0.50% m/m. In order to comply with the MARPOL regulations, ships can limit air pollutants by installing scrubbers. Scrubbers enable ships to use less expensive and higher sulphur fuel while maintaining the emission standards set by IMO 2020. A ship’s machinery with an EGCS will help in reducing sulphur content from 3.5% to 0.5%.

Any vessel discharging exhaust gas wash water is required to collect samples and get them tested by an accredited testing facility. In the first 12 months, samples have to be collected and analyzed twice. After the first 12 months, samples maybe can be submitted once a year for testing and analysis. Shipowners are required to analyze the inlet water, water after being utilized in the scrubber and the discharge water. Atlas Lab provides a comprehensive state-of-the-art Scrubber Water Testing and analysis Facility.
