Soot filter for ships


A soot filter installed on ships plays a crucial role in purifying exhaust emissions by capturing soot particles as they exit the exhaust pipe. By containing soot within the filter, it contributes to maintaining the cleanliness of the ship’s deck and the surrounding water.

This article delves into the operational mechanics of soot filters tailored for maritime applications.

Filter Regeneration Process: Using ceramic materials, the soot filter effectively separates soot particles from the ship’s exhaust flow. The filtering capacity of each filter depends on its volume.

As a result, periodic regeneration is essential to burn off the accumulated soot within the filter, ensuring its continued effectiveness. This procedure also prevents the exhaust back pressure from exceeding the engine’s maximum limit.
