Maritime Industry

Complete Solutions, Worldwide Support in Water Analysis

For over 70 years, Hach® has offered water analytical instruments for process, lab, and handheld applications. Hach makes water analysis better, faster, simpler, greener, and more informative.

Within the maritime industry, Hach’s solutions can be found onboard vessels for gas scrubber applications, waste and potable water monitoring, ballast water disinfection monitoring, and recreational water monitoring. Hach has a global support network with locations in Europe, USA, Canada, Australia, and the Caribbean.

With Hach, ship owners can:

  • Maintain SOx compliance without hiring additional onboard expertise
  • Avoid fines by meeting the IMO ballast water regulations
  • Provide safe potable water to passengers
  • Reduce wastewater treatment costs
  • Utilize a low-maintenance solution for monitoring bilge water treatment




 

Maintain SOx compliance with Exhaust Gas Cleaning

Gas scrubber water analysis represents Hach’s newest application with years of successful runtime across multiple manufacturers. Hach’s robust and reliable portfolio of instruments has been proven for gas scrubber applications, including process and handheld measurements of turbidity, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH), pH, dissolved oxygen, and conductivity. Hach service engineers have provided onboard calibration, maintenance, and repair support globally.

Parameters Relevant to Gas Scrubber Water Analysis

  • pH
  • Conductivity
  • PAH/Oil in Water
  • Turbidity
  • Free Chlorine, Total Chlorine
  • Alkalinity
  • Suspended Solids, TDS

How to Measure:





The global sulphur cap regulations can be met with Flue Gas Scrubbers.

Are you or your customers ready for 2020 IMO SOx regulations?

Working with a vendor not well-versed in water analytics, or a vendor without a global footprint that has the resources to scale to your needs can result in downtime, a risk of fines and an impact on the environment. 

By partnering with Hach, ship owners can save time and resources with preventative maintenance, calibration, and repair services for exhaust gas cleaning monitoring solutions. Hach instruments for the exhaust gas cleaning system are DNV-GL certified.
