UT99 AG Unveils World’s First Oil Mist Separator
UT99 AG unveiled the world’s first and only oil mist separator with an approval by Germanischer Lloyd (GL).
The company is one of the pioneers in the development and manufacture of highly efficient oil mist separators for crankcase ventilation of combustion engines and for lubricating oil tank vent for turbines.
“The world’s first class admission of Germanischer Lloyd for a secure oil mist separator is the systematic continuation of our philosophy,” explains Lukas Riedo, Managing Director of UT99 AG.
Environmental and safety requirements are getting higher in the marine and offshore sectors in the future. Customers are demanding products that meet the specific requirements in maritime and offshore operations. With the GL approval the UT99 AG has proven that their products fulfill highest demands on safety and reliability.
Furthermore, the discharge of oil emissions from the crankcase ventilation and from the lubricating oil tank ventilation, respectively, is almost completely eliminated. Depending on the model residual oil amounts below 1 mg/m³ in the exhaust air (e.g. blow-by) will be ensured.
The portfolio of oil mist separators with GL approval includes volume flows (e.g. blow-by) up to 1050 m³/h and can be used on internal combustion engines up to 100 MW and all available sizes of gas and steam turbines. The modular design allows a wide variety of options while reducing the cost and variety of components and spare parts.
The customers of the UT99 AG are leading motor and turbine manufacturers, plant manufacturer and shipyards, including 2G Energy AG, Alstom Power, Caterpillar Energy Solutions GmbH, MAN Diesel & Turbo SE, Meyer Werft GmbH, MTU Friedrichshafen GmbH, Rolls- Royce Marine AS Bergen Engines, Siemens AG and SCHNELL Motoren AG.
