Hydrophore System / PackageIndustrial/Power
Hydrophore means obtaining water from any desired depth. Generally used in tall buildings and on board ships, 24-hours operational.
MOWE’s profound experience and capabilities in system solution not only in design & integration of Hot water system in Marine & Offshore industries, we also has the abilities in providing Marine Hydrophore System / Packages for Fresh Water & Sanitary Water systems according to customer’s specification used in marine industry.
Hydrophore System is designed to pump and maintain the pressure of the water supplied to the different locations of the ship at various heights to keep the constant pressure of water in lines and at all floors of the ship.
There are two Hydrophore systems used on board:
- Fresh water Hydrophore System - used as drinking water, gally use etc. after treatment
- Sanitary Hydrophore System – used for laundry, shower, toilet use etc.
Hydrophore System is connected with Fresh water generator (FWG), with salinometer & ppm controller. There is a dump valve through which controlled fresh water is passed to Water storage tank and then to hydrophore tank.
A hydrophore tank is used which is partially filled with water and above that compressed air is provided for head pressure. Compressed air builds head pressure, so that water can reach up to highest level and remote places.
As the water level falls in the hydrophore tank, the air pressure also will be reduces and when the reduced pressure is less than set pressure the hydrophore pump will start. As the water fills up in the tank the air pressure also rises and if it is equal to high level set air pressure, the pump will stop.
From 1st hydrophore tank sanitary water is supplied i.e for sanitary use. Now, a connection is made to chlorinate and dechlorinate the water and supplied to 2nd hydrophore tank through another hydrophore pump. Water from this tank is compared and finally domestic use water is produced by the system.
MOWE’s team of engineers are proficient in system designing and integrating which complies with marine approvals and ISO certifications. We have the confidence in providing the ship owner with a long lasting trouble-free source for water supply.
