SijFa Cruises, a Dutch company, dedicated to the operation, construction and supervision of river cruise ships, recently turned to Pronomar who made a name for themselves in terms of Green water treatment.

SijFa Cruises is now also using the efficient and environmentally friendly solutions in terms of Green water treatment, for all problems with heavy lime scale, rust and Marine growth like barnacles and bacteria, both of course for freshwater and seawater!
They asked Pronomar to install their well established and high-quality MERUS rings on board the 4 star river passenger vessel MPS Rigoletto. This vessel, travelling under Dutch flag, caters for 120 guests and with its elegant and warm design it leaves nothing to be desired.

The following 3 MERUS rings were installed:

– 1 Merus 2” HCI (High Industrial Capacity) ring at the hydrofoor,
– 1 Merus 2” HCI ring at the main water feed pipe for the kitchen as well as
– 1 Merus 1” Industrial BIO ring 1 ¼” for use at the boiler / heat exchanger.

The purpose of the rings is easily explained: to bring back the water to its initial quality. The way the rings work is that they give off tiny oscillations that disturb the lime scale. Afterwards the troublesome substances are flushed away leaving the boiler, water pipes and hydrofoor free from any scaling, thus bringing back the initially experienced performance level. The equipments lifetime is also prolonged which means a significant decrease in operational and maintenance costs.
