The Wärtsilä Receiver temperature dew point control improves the efficiency and reliability of the engine’s operation while also lowering fuel consumption and emissions. The Wärtsilä Receiver temperature dew point control is a fully automated solution that dynamically adjusts the low temperature water flow so that the charge air is at the optimal temperature. This prevents condensation in the charge air receiver, thus preventing corrosion and reducing the risk of engine damage.
Dew point control systems have demonstrated their effectiveness in Wärtsilä land-based power plants, and are now available as a retrofit for marine installations.
The Wärtsilä Receiver temperature dew point control has been designed with standard components to cover various Wärtsilä 46 engine configurations and water control systems.
Wärtsilä is a global leader in smart technologies and complete lifecycle solutions for the marine and energy markets. By emphasising sustainable innovation, total efficiency and data analytics, Wärtsilä maximises the environmental and economic performance of the vessels and power plants of its customers.
