Lynx EGR for cleaning the exhaust for EGR systems (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) is now available for international customers. The Lynx is an efficient cleaner that removes all liquid and a percentage of dry carbon particles from the flow. Most modern engines now require exhaust gas recirculation to meet the new emissions standards, but struggle with liquids and contaminant carryover from scrubbers and filters that are not sufficiently efficient.
Since 1955 Flebu has provided high quality centrifugal fans, silencers, dampers and related steel products to the global industrial power industry, maritime and offshore industry. Flebu’s brand motto «Performance Guaranteed” aligns very well with the business strategy of InnSep.
The InnSep-Flebu partnership opens access to the EGR market of 70.000 ships worldwide. The Lynx EGR removes liquids, black carbon and soot particles from the exhaust flow with higher efficiency and lower footprint.
The fast-track development of the Lynx Scrubber for Dry Gas Seal protection was profiled in the Tech Zone blog from NTNU by professor Carlos Dorao. The innovation project managed to compress the steps through the Technology Readiness Levels used on the Norwegian Continental Shelf from 10-15 years to less than 1 year.
This may be a new record in Norwegian O&G industry, demonstrating how it is possible to rapidly solve operational problems, without circumventing any regulations.
The effect of this R&D strategy allows the Lynx Scrubber to generate operation hours that can shorten the steps towards the highest TRL level in other application areas. For main gas/liquid separation, both before and after compressors, the equipment requires successful integration and operation over a period of time in the actual conditions.
This strategy performed better than planned and was only possible through the R&D excellence of NTNU, InnSep and EagleBurgmann, combined with EagleBurgmann’s leading expertise in the O&G industry, says CEO Sondre Jacobsen. Based on this success, we have allready planned follow-up projects, including the upcoming DEMO2000 project for large-scale gas/liquid scrubbing.
