protection control system / electric / industrial / automatic
Alfa Laval FlowSync is an automatic separator feed pump control system for use in your vessel's treatment system. It synchronizes fuel flow to separators based on actual consumption - giving you greater engine protection, lower cat fine levels and reduced energy costs.
Low cost, high performance
Increases separation efficiency and reduces cat fine levels in cleaned fuel oil
Reduces fuel-related engine wear
Saves electric pumping energy when the ship is slow steaming, reducing costs and carbon footprint
Manages the complete separation system from a centralized control panel
Easy to install with standardized components, integrating with all fuel system layouts and configurations
Whether your ship is slow steaming or at maximum speed, FlowSync matches separator throughput to your actual engine load - and ensures the day tank is filled to a safe working level. It requires low investment for both existing vessels and new builds, delivering maximum fuel treatment system performance with minimal crew effort.
How it works
FlowSync provides a complete, energy-efficient separation system with top-certified flow rate values.
Extra engine protection
FlowSync's control system adjusts fuel flow from the settling tank to the fuel treatment separators based on actual engine output plus an additional safety flow of 10% to ensure that the service tank is always full.
This means that fuel retention time in the separator bowl increases during slow steaming. This boosts separation efficiency, enabling the removal of abrasive cat fines and providing extra engine protection.
