UviLux TY+ turbidity FAQs
Exhaust emissions from ships engines using heavy fuel oils release gases and particulates that can be detrimental to human health and the environment. To reduce this pollution the IMO established regulations through the Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC). Ships must now reduce nitrogen dioxide (NOX), sulphur dioxide (SOX) and particulate emissions. To meet the sulphur limit for 2020 of 0.5% the shipping industry is implementing strategies, which includes installing Exhaust Gas Cleaning Systems (scrubbers) to neutralize the sulphur. Any discharge into the environment must be monitored to ensure nothing harmful is discharged. Ships need to fit monitoring systems and should ensure that it performs the full regulatory analysis, as required by the IMO, including PAH, pH, turbidity and temperature, to enable robust and accurate measurements are made in accordance with the regulatory requirements.
