IPCO Power BV provides environmental solutions for the shipping, power and petrochemical industry. IPCO Power started its activities in 1997.
The main activities of IPCO Power are Fuel Improvement, Vapour Recovery and Odour Control.
Introduction of Fuel Improvement Technology:
Heavy Fuel Oil (HFO) is not homogenous and has an average droplet size of 70 micron and larger.
It contains numerous much larger clusters of asphaltenes and complex long-chain hydro-carbons.
It is a refinery waste stream product with a high BTU content used as fuel oil.
Centrifuges and automated filters are used to clean the fuel. A percentage of the purchased fuel ends up in the slop tank.
IPCO Power’s “Fluid Shearing Technology” homogenizes your HFO reducing size and mass of fuel particles.
It is implemented in several applications on vessels and plants operating on HFO.
IPCO POWER’s FID Reducer Sludge Reduction Systems are installed directly before the centrifuge.
As a result of the reduction in fuel droplet size, centrifuges and filters will be able to more effectively remove in-organic contaminants and stay clean much longer.
Consequently, sludge generation will be reduced by approx 50% - 80% as shown in the below diagram and centrifuge flushing intervals will be significantly extended
IPCO POWER’s FID Improver Combustion Improvement Systems homogenize heavy fuel oil after passing through heaters and pumps in the high pressure side of fuel injection system, supplying fine filters and injectors with fuel droplets of 3 micron or smaller. The improved atomization and more intensive contact of fuel with oxygen will significantly enhance combustion, reducing fuel consumption and lower emissions.
IPCO Power FID Injector Systems are combustion improvement systems designed to create a stable “water in fuel” emulsion. The implementation of emulsified fuel significantly enhances fuel atomization and distribution in the combustion chamber.
This results in more effective combustion, lower fuel consumption and a reduction of NOx, HC and PM pollutants,
while the engine’s combustion chambers, pistons, exhaust system and lube oil will stay much cleaner.
