The marine environment offers particular challenges related to salt water and moisture. Leading-edge, multi-stage stainless steel and aluminum filtration and separation systems are required aboard ships to protect gas turbine air intakes to radar-absorbing composite louvers on today’s most advanced vessels. Ship builders require the filtration and separation of salt water aerosols for HVAC and gas turbine engine intakes.
Many global shipyards and shipping companies rely on STS level sensors for the monitoring of water, waste water and fuel tanks - particularly in ballast tank applications. STS is a major supplier in this segment due to the high reliability of its sensors and the ability to manufacture them from titanium.
In shipbuilding Körting water jet ejectors do all critical pumping jobs on board a ship: bilging inaccessible tank and ballast spaces. conveying solids on long dredger suction heads. essential component in fresh water production plants on sea.
For those who have lived in the arms of the sea, the bond is powerful and eternal. When mariners discharge waste into the sea, it is not carelessness but desperation…a last resort used in the absence of practical alternatives. The waste generated on every ship comes from both people and machinery. People generate garbage and sewage.
