One of the main components of a marine Exhaust Gas Scrubber (EGS) system is the separator. Lynx scrubber can replace large, stationary systems. Expected savings in size and weight would be between 50 and 80%.
InnSep «Lynx» scrubber technology is protected by Norwegian and international patents.
Yes, most likely. We recommend participation in our planned muliticlient Join Industry Project (JIP) in 2015 where specific client applications will be investigated and piloted.
Yes. A self propelled solution can be developed for your requirements. We are using the motor to control the speed of the mesh in order to secure consistent rotation over the entire pressure range and gas flow range. When exact gas velocity is known and consistent, a system powered by the gas itself can be designed. The rotation requires so little energy that the pressure drop across the separator is minute, if any. In any case our design guidelines allow us to retrofit any non-motorized Lynx installations with motorized rotation.
None. The Lynx is hermetically closed. The energy required to operate it is low enough to allow magnetic non-contact coupling through the titanium cap where the engine is mounted. This allows the engine to be dismounted without affecting the integrity of the pressure vessel.
Lynx is designed with the same bearings used in subsea and offshore compressors. Bearings are normally certified for a certain number of rotations so that the rotation speeds will indicate the lifetime of the bearings. Compressors rotate 10-15 times faster than the Lynx, in the same conditions.
The Lynx mesh does not flood. When liquid amount increases above the design value, the centrifugal force combined with the collection chamber will continue to remove the design value amount of liquid, no matter the amount of excess liquids.
