Ion ScaleBuster Water Conditioning - Shipping - Case Study
In the early 1990’s the Dutch Royal Navy was looking for a “green” and reliable technology to solve the corrosion problem caused by desalinated water in the galley of the M-Fregat Class.
WATER SYSTEM CHALLENGES
The water supplied to the ship’s galley (the kitchen) comes from the desalination plant of the ship located in the mechanical room (known as machine room). As desalination produce water free of dissolved minerals there is a corrosion potential problem. A known post-treatment is adding lime scale, however, to avoid scale build up the designers were looking for different solutions.
