Logan Industries, a hydraulic repair, manufacturing and rental company, will offer a high-alloy welding scrubber repair service from all coasts of the US for the global marine shipping and cruise line industries.

Exhaust scrubbers enable a ship to maximise the use of lower cost fuel while minimising harmful emissions. Installed in the diesel engine exhaust stacks in ships, scrubbers provide a water shower that rains down in the exhaust stack while the fumes rise up and out. The water combines with the fumes to pull an array of harmful emissions out of the air, creating an acid in the process that erodes cheaper steels. Therefore, the scrubber must be manufactured from exotic alloys and during its service life it must be maintained and repaired with high-alloy welding.

Logan has specially trained service teams and prepositioned equipment on each coast of the US to offer fast turnaround scrubber repairs to ships when they enter port for bunkering, resupply, or on/offloading of customers and cargo. Working with Logan’s sister company, Schelde Exotech, Logan brings European welding techniques on exotic materials to the US and provides worldwide coverage, deploying service teams to repair these unique devices.

Dean Carey, technical director, Logan, says, “We are fortunate that many of Logan’s engineers have already been performing this type of specialised repair for several decades. By officially bringing scrubber repair into Logan’s suite of service offerings, we are growing our customer base but also providing a valuable service to current Schelde Exotech customers when they are in the US and require immediate assistance or repairs. This type of welding repair fits our model of providing specialised service and repairs alongside a unique engineered solution, where not many others can.”
