It is imperative that the structural integrity of the scrubber and associated pipework is constantly checked for signs of leakage or corrosion. In view of the acidic nature of the scrubber washwater, correct material selection for the scrubber body, pipework, components and accessories, together with good installation, but also very important, maintenance and repair workmanship are critical to avoid subsequent safety issues.

An exhaust gas cleaning system, also known as scrubber or gas scrubber, is a device installed on board of marine vessels that, quite literally, “scrubs” harmful sulfur oxides from exhaust gases. The technology is commonly installed on ships seeking compliance options in the face of tighter emissions regulations conform the new International Marine Organisation emission regulations. The new emission regulations, known as IMO 2020, mandates a maximum sulphur content of 0.5% in marine fuels globally.
Scrubbers have been among the top choices for owners to comply with IMO 2020 Sulphur Cap, as an alternative to low-sulphur fuels, primarily due to the cost savings they offered to owners of large ships as compared to expensive new fuels.

Scrubber is a system that is designed to by the use of water wash the exhaust gases from main, auxiliary and boilers to remove sulfur dioxide (SO2) which is a toxic gas, that is directly harmful to human health. There different designs in the market today however they could be divided into two categories, open and closed types. Power consumption of operating a scrubber system is typically between 1-2% of main engine power.
