Homogenizer Unit (HGU)

A dynamic milling machine to be used in the fuel system on board ships.

The Homogenizer Unit is usually installed in fuel and/or tank circulating system and is designed and solely intended for improving the fuel quality.

It is designed to improve your fuel quality which will lead to a better combustion and less maintenance. Furthermore, it can reduce sludge in case of fuel incompatibility. Specifically, it serves for:

  • stable fuel conditions in storage, settling, or service tanks
  • treat sludge, or waste oil
  • stable long-term blended fuel
  • increase of the amount of burnable fuel, in case of bad fuel quality.
  • high saving potential

It is suitable for all type of vessels with 2 and 4 stroke main engine in dual fuel operation (HFO/MDO/new type of fuel oil acc. Sulphur cap), e. g. tankers, LNG, container, bulkers, cruise vessels.
