Installing a Van Borselen self-cleaning filter comes with great benefits for ship owners:
It will decrease the running costs and increase the long-term reliability and efficiency of EGS systems.
The majority open loop EGS systems take raw sea water to desulfurize DeSOx from the exhaust gas. Incoming sea water can contain sand, algae, (small) fishes, jellyfish etc.
The standard installed strainer is only ment to protect the pump but doesn’t protect the EGS spray nozzles. Blockingthe spray nozzles will decrease to complete fouling of the scrubbing bed.
Our self-cleaning filter will remove these harmful impurities from the intake seawater and protect the downstream equipment.
In a closed loop system the Van Borselen self-cleaning filter will also protect the plate heat exchanger from clogging, which increases the efficiency of the heat exchanger and decreases maintenance costs.

Another application for our self-cleaning filters on ships is Ballast Water Management (BWM) System
