NanoVapor Granted Lloyd’s Register Type Approval for High Speed Gas Freeing System

NanoVapor announced that its innovative Vapor Suppression System has received a product type approval certificate from Lloyd’s Register (LR).  The portable ST-1000 system weighs only 45 kg, has no moving parts, and is powered by compressed air. When used with its proprietary liquid nano-suppressant, the ST-1000 delivery unit can quickly gas free a tank up to 90% faster, even if residual fuel or sludge is present. Since normal oxygen level is preserved throughout the suppression process, the confined space is quickly made safe for entry. Only a tiny amount of the non-toxic and biodegradable nano-suppressant is needed, leaving no residue or waste to clean up.

Russell Chew, NanoVapor’s CEO, is very excited about bringing important safety and sustainability technologies to the marine transportation industry. “Our vapor management systems have been fully tested and successfully adapted for high speed gas freeing of fuel and petrochemical tanks of all sizes. The LR Type Approval now opens the door to extend our recognition as a ‘Best Practice’ gas freeing system for land-based tanks to vessels.”

At Marintec China 2019, Ecochlor introduced the ST-1000 delivery unit to the maritime industry. Their VP of Business Development, Andrew Marshall believes that this nanotechnology will, “revolutionize tank cleaning and gas freeing of cargo and bunker tanks in preparation for dry dock or unplanned tank inspections or maintenance.”

With the imminent IMO 2020 sulfur cap deadline, the NanoVapor technology can be used to facilitate faster tank cleaning procedures and allow vessels to resume normal operation as quickly as possible.

Ecochlor to Demonstrate its Ballast Water Management System at Marintec China

In a highly anticipated event, Ecochlor, Inc. will display one of their ballast water management systems (BWMS) at Marintec China, Stand N3D5N.

Ecochlor’s treatment technology is unique, using chlorine dioxide (ClO2) and generated by a simple process on board the vessel to treat the ballast water during a single pass at uptake. The system does not need to treat on discharge and there is no need for a neutralization stage.

The Ecochlor ballast water treatment offers a number of advantages over other techniques. It is completely effective in all water types and conditions without the need for crew to adjust the operating parameters. This allows for a consistent, easy-to-use system for the crew without the uncertainty of its effectiveness when faced with varying water types.

The Ecochlor BWMS is considered by many be a top-of-the-line system due to its very high reliability and stellar service program. Ecochlor’s three “Pillars of Reliability” include: simple technology; high quality engineering and construction; and guaranteed shipboard visits two times per year. The Ecochlor BWMS is backed by EcoCare®, the only ballast water treatment efficacy compliance guarantee in the industry.

Steve Candito, Ecochlor’s CEO said: “With more than 16 years in the industry, Ecochlor has a long history of providing timely and expert support to our customers in keeping their ballast water management system in compliance. We are not in this business for the short-term, our focus is to continue to offer shipowners the reliable performance of our system necessary for global shipping both now and in the future.”
