The Wärtsilä Mult-Inert system combines a flue gas system and an inert gas generator to offer maximum flexibility onboard product tankers transporting petroleum products.
Wärtsilä Mult-Inert™ systems are vital systems ensuring a high level of safety for use onboard tankers intended to carry both crude oil and refined products, and combine into one compact unit where quality is the number one priority.
The Wärtsilä Mult-Inert™ system can run as an inert gas generator or, when the boilers are in use, as a flue gas system. They are designed based on compact modules, offering important savings in space and installation cost for newbuild and retrofit vessels.
What is Inert Gas?
Inert Gas is a gas or a mixture of gases, such as flue gas, containing insufficient oxygen to support the combustion of hydrocarbons. An Inert condition is a condition in which the oxygen content throughout the atmosphere of a tank has been reduced to 8% or less by volume.
