Introducing the U-Type Scrubber
The robust and reliable choice
Clean Marine's recommended product
Clean Marine U-type scrubber
Our scrubber's simple U-type (open loop) design and above standard steel quality ensures maximum longevity, evidenced by our multi-year track record of smooth operation across a variety of fleets.
The open loop precludes the need for caustic acid or waste water to be stored onboard for discharge at the port. Operationally, there is no extra burden on the crew, with minimal training required.
Finally, this design is proven to be the most cost competitive per unit as well as for ongoing OPEX.
Over 80% of all scrubbers sold globally have been open loop for these reasons (source DNV Class Society 2022). We believe the operational complexities and ongoing costs of hybrid and closed loops systems negates all potential financial and practical benefit of these systems' marginally larger trading limits.
