SUPREME Athmos Zero-Pollution Seal

By Maritime Reporter & Engineering News
Thursday, December 26, 2013

IHC Sealing Solutions launched the zero-pollution SUPREME Athmos seal, a seal designed to enable ships with limited draft up to five meters to prevent oil from being emitted into the environment. Water is prevented from entering the system by collecting any leakages from the seal into a drain tank. Once full, this tank is automatically drained into the vessel’s general waste oil tank. The SUPREME Athmos seal has a fail-safe option incorporating a condition-monitoring function. In the event of the system failing, it switches to the normal sealing mode, the drain tank captures the little oil that the seal uses and the tank indicates when it should be emptied.
