Hydraulic repair, manufacturing and rental company, Logan Industries (Logan), now offers marine scrubber repair and servicing at new Pressure Vessel Heat Exchanger (PVHEX) facility in Hempstead, Texas.
The facility produces scrubbers for the petrochemical, marine, ocean transport, chemical and nuclear industries. It has been key in growing the business applications of Logans Dutch sister company, Verolme, anabling them to offer independent service for scrubber repair/services and overboard piping solutions across North America for the first time.
The water draining out of marine scrubbers through overboard discharge water pipes is corrosive and requires special piping materials. As protective coatings are not always sufficient and can be damaged, resulting in corrosion and leaks, Verolme provides an overboard pipe with diffuser, including a connector piece in the same material as the ships hull. The critical transition weld is protected with several layers of alloy overlay, to perform in the most severe corrosive environments.
The PVHEX facility will manufacture the pipe, working as part of Logans scrubber manufacturing team.
Keeping our customers out of the dry-dock is our primary objective. Serving as a scrubber manufacturer with in-house expertise in material selection for the scrubber systems, spools and discharge piping, allows Logan to support clients with a range of options for permanent and lasting solutions.
