On the 7th of April this year (2012) Pronomar installed several Merus rings on board of a MPS J. Henry Dunant, one of the vessels of the International Red Cross. The Red Cross is a humanitarian movement with approximately 97 million volunteers, members and staff worldwide. It was founded to ensure respect for all human beings, without looking at one’s nationality, sex, religious beliefs or political opinions. J. Henry Dunant is the name of a ships which is being used by the Dutch Red Cross to organize sailing trips for people with special needs. Every year approximately 3250 chronically sick, elderly and/or disabled people enjoy their holiday on board of this vessel. The ships are named after the founder of the Red Cross, Jean-Henri Dunant.

The Merus rings are a highly innovative, environment-friendly solution for green water which counteract scaling. The fact that the Red Cross placed this order shows that they care about the state of their technical, water-related equipment. It also shows that they care about their personnel and guests on board (e.g. less skin-irritation because of ‘softer’ water). The workers on the J. Henry Dunant do a good job for the less fortunate among us and so they deserve something in return.

The following rings were installed:
– 1 x 1 ½” HCI Pronomar – Merus HCI ring (for the hydrofor)
– 1 x 1 ¼” IND Pronomar – Merus IND BIO ring (for warm water)
– 1 x 1 ¼” IND Pronomar – Merus IND (for the return pipe)

Once the Merus rings are installed, they give off tiny oscillations that disturb the lime scale. Afterwards the troublesome substances are simply flushed away. By keeping the equipment free from scaling the initial performance level of the equipment will be brought back, plus it prolongs the lifetime of the equipment, which in return means a significant decrease in costs.

Pronomar are pleased that the Dutch Red Cross decided to add to the benefit of their guests on-board with the help of the MERUS rings and trust the rings will provide the high quality required on a daily basis!
