Ft. Lauderdale’s DeAngelo Marine Exhaust celebrated the first anniversary of its SeaClean marine exhaust treatment system by announcing the sale of three systems for installation on a large yacht in the South of France.
The SeaClean exhaust treatment system eliminates soot, diesel smell, and oil sheen through the use of a silicon carbide filter that captures particulates and unburned fuel and oil that make up the most offensive components of diesel engine exhaust, the company said in a statement.
The filter is infused with a high-sulfur tolerant catalyst that chemically reduces most particulates to water vapor and carbon dioxide. The inorganic particulates remaining are trapped in the filter body and can be removed by annual mechanical cleaning.
SeaClean uses excess generator capacity to maintain high generator exhaust temperatures to oxidize offensive exhaust pollution, which eliminates the need for load banks and their cooling systems.
A computer-controlled power management system reduces filter power as the yacht’s electrical load increases, and the control system permits the engineer to operate the heater as an exhaust cooled load bank should conditions warrant.
