Fans for Limiting Sulphur Oxide Emissions in the Shipping Industry

BarkerBille’s ID and FD fan product range is designed for limiting sulphur oxide (SOx) emissions within offshore scrubber solutions, resulting in a positive impact on the environment.

In October 2016, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) passed stricter global sulphur oxides limits, which will be implemented in 2020. It is known that SOx, present in ship emissions, causes many deaths every year and has a negative impact on both crops, environment and air quality. Setting a global SOx cap will have a positive effect on the air we breathe and can save thousands of lives every year.

To reach the lower and stricter SOx emissions, a lot of vessels are now being rebuilt with SOx scrubbers in open or closed loop to function as exhaust gas cleaning systems.

Using scrubbers to clean the flue gas often results in increased back pressure to the combustion air fan and / or unstable back pressure in the boiler. To prevent these problems, boilers can be fitted with larger combustion air fans (FD fans) and / or flue gas fans (ID fans) can be installed between the boiler and scrubber. BarkerBille has a complete range of FD and ID fans, as well as seal air fans for scrubber operations. These centrifugal fans are designed specifically for each application to achieve optimal operation, high efficiency and low power consumption.

BarkerBille is able to supply the same high-quality centrifugal fans for scrubbing systems from both China and Denmark to shipyards all over the world.

Advantages of BarkerBille’s industrial fans for scrubbers include:

  • Pressure preforming up to 9,000Pa
  • Air flows up to 60,000m³/h
  • Specially designed for each application
  • Reliable performance
  • Durable construction / reinforcement
