SOx and PM environmental regulations for marine vessels have been reinforced since 2015. We have developed an electrostatic precipitator for marine vessels as a device to collect dust and particulate matter (PM). The device is part of the regulation-compliant exhaust gas cleaning system (EGCS), and is to be installed in front of the SOx removal scrubber.
An electrostatic precipitator places a positive or negative electric charge on the surface of dust and particulate matter (PM), and then collects it onto an electrode surface using an electrostatic force. In order to mount it to a marine vessel, we have been working on achieving long-term stable and automatic cleaning in accordance with enhanced miniaturization and high-temperature conditions for the electrostatic precipitator based on our discharge control technology cultivated in electrostatic precipitators for tunnels.
