Scylla Tours, a Swiss shipping company, running a fleet of luxurious river cruise vessels catering for the high-end market and covering almost all European waterways, have once again approached Pronomar for their innovative Pronomar-Merus solution for green water treatment.

When Pronomar was still known as Pronova-CT they were happy to supply their MERUS rings to be installed on board the MS Swiss Emerald, MS Ruby and the MS Alina. Now Pronomar are happy to have received a very nice follow-up order from Scylla Tours again, this time for the sister ship MS Treasures, a new jewel on the rivers in Europe, travelling the Rhine after being christened in August 2011.

Same as the guests on-board are left with nothing to be desired and can enjoy the highest standard, Scylla Tours also want to make sure that the vessel itself is running smoothly at all times. To facilitate that, Scylla Tours ordered Pronomar with the supply of the following rings:

one 2” Merus HCI BIO ring, to be installed at the hydrofoor
one 2” Merus IND ring, for the pumps of the hydrofoor
one 2” Merus HCI BIO ring for the hot water supply
one 1”Merus IND ring – for the water supply to the kitchen
one ½” Merus IND ring to the water supply to the whirlpool

The purpose of the rings is easily explained: to keep all the relevant equipment (pipes, hydrofoors, boilers etc.) free from scaling and thus making sure the equipment can work smoothly and to its full potential. And how does it work?
After installation the rings give off tiny oscillations that disturb the lime scale. Afterwards the troublesome substances are flushed away leaving the equipment in question 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.
