Alfa Laval has introduced a new streamlined version of its exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) water treatment system for EGR engineers operating with low-sulphur fuel.

The Alfa Laval PureNOx Prime has been released as the implementation of the tier III NOx limits approaches across North America and the US Caribbean Emission Control Areas (ECAs).

Kristina Effler, business manager of water treatment exhaust gas emissions at Alfa Laval, said: “We put additional emphasis on the tough market demands of low investment and operating costs.”

“EGR is a compact technology in which most components are built into the engine itself. PureNOx Prime further diminishes the EGR footprint, and it has a more modular design that makes installation even more flexible,” Ms Effler added.

PureNOx Prime is a water treatment which is a crucial aspect of EGR operation. It makes use of centrifugal separation and Alfa Laval said it has been proven in thousands of hours of real-life operation at sea.

“Alfa Laval PureNOx technology has been developed in close cooperation with MAN Diesel & Turbo and tested extensively aboard vessels from A.P. Moller-Maersk,” said Ms Effler.

“Simply put, it packs the already proven PureNOx performance into a much smaller footprint,” she concluded.
