       日本邮船(NYK)已与崛场公司(Horiba)合作,共同研制一款新型船用含硫量分析仪。
 
       NYK表示,这款新型硫分析仪能够有效检测船舶含硫尾气的排放,使之符合限硫令(SOx)的标准,同时还可以帮助公司优化对低硫油的使用。
 
       据称,该仪器是在现有陆上分析设备的基础上研制而成的,其检测范围甚广,重油至轻油都能分析。
 
       除了具备陆用分析设备的精确性和可靠性,这款小巧易携带上船的分析仪还采用了一次性的样品采集装置,即便是在机舱里也能保持清洁。同时,轮机员在船只进入排放控制区(ECA)之前,使用该仪器在船上就能事先确认燃油含硫量低于0.1%。NYK表示,有了这一新设备,轮机员能够掌握精确的含硫量数值,而在此之前只能在船上估量硫量。
 
       为防止空气污染,欧洲和北美的某些地区被划为ECA,经过这些地区的船只必须使用含硫量不超过0.1%的燃油。
 
       因此,在进入ECA之前,船上的轮机员必须要计算储罐和管道中硫浓度降到0.1%及以下所需的时间,并及时将燃油更换至低硫燃料。因而,轮机员们希望能直接在船上就进行含硫量分析,从而确定更换燃料的最佳时机,以便能遵守规定。该公司补充说,这款新的船用含硫量分析仪正是为满足这一需求而研制的。
 
       “NYK集团将利用这款船用硫量分析仪继续谨遵Sox规定。公司目前还在收集各类型船舶的实时数据,通过分析这些数据以确定更换燃料的最佳时间,从而减少燃油损耗。” NYK进一步表示。

NYK Develops Onboard Sulfur-In-Oil Analyzer
 
NYK and Nippon Yuka Kogyo, an NYK Group company, have collaborated with Horiba on developing a new sulfur-in-oil analyzer for ships.
 
By using the new analyzer, NYK will be able to comply with regulations limiting sulfur oxides (SOx) from vessels, as well as optimize the company’s use of low-sulfur fuel oil, the company said.
 
As explained, the new device is based on an existing device used at onshore analysis centers. It can analyze a wide range of fuel, from C heavy oil to light oil.
 
Maintaining the accuracy and reliability of onshore analysis centers, the compact new analyzer uses disposable sample cells to keep clean, even in the engine room, and allows onboard engineers to confirm that the sulfur concentration in fuel is surely under 0.1 percent before entering an emission control area (ECA). This allows engineers to grasp the actual sulfur percent, which could only be estimated on board before, according to NYK.
 
Certain areas around Europe and North America have been designated as ECAs to prevent air pollution, and ships sailing through those areas are required to use onboard fuel oil having a sulfur content of no more than 0.1 percent.
 
Therefore, onboard engineers must change to low-sulfur fuel before entering ECAs by calculating the time that the sulfur concentration in tanks and pipes will fall to 0.1 percent or less. Engineers have thus desired to be able to perform onboard sulfur-in-oil analyses to determine the best timing to change fuel and adhere to regulations. This new sulfur-in-oil analyzer for ships has been developed to meet this demand, the company added.
 
“The NYK Group will continue to comply with SOx regulations by making use of this sulfur-in-oil analyzer for ships. The group also collects actual time data from various types of vessels, and after analysis determines the optimal timing for changing fuel to best reduce consumption,” NYK further said.
