Vroon Offshore Services chooses Pronomar to equip the VOS Sweet with multiple MERUS rings. Earlier Pronomar already outfitted the VOS Sympathy. On the VOS Sweet they experienced problems with lime scale (in the piping, the boiler and the pumps), and so it didn’t take Vroon long to contact Pronomar again for its MERUS technology.

The following MERUS rings were installed on the VOS Sweet:
• 2 1/2” IND BIO ring for the hydrophore
• 2” IND ring on the feedpipe of the hydrophore and the pumps
• 1 1/2” IND ring on the feedpipe of the boiler
• 1 1/2” IND BIO ring on the circulation line

When vessels such as the VOS Sweet experience problems with lime scale it is a good idea to apply the MERUS technology. The MERUS technology consists of a ring that is placed around the water pipe and emits small oscillations to the water. As a result, the growth of deposits, such as rust, scale, bacteria etc. are disturbed and the pipes and appliances remain longer clean. In addition, older deposits degrade over time leaving the pipes even cleaner than before the MERUS ring was installed. The rings are suitable for both fresh and salt water. The MERUS ring is an innovative and environment-friendly alternative to expensive maintenance service. It increases the lifespan of not only the water pipes but all water related machines and devices such as boilers and pumps.
