That's why Foster Wheeler maintains a special facility for the sole purpose of testing our inert gas generators and analyzing their output.

We're the only American producer of such systems with anything like it.

Here's how it works. Before we ship your inert gas generator, it is operated and tested under precise in- service conditions. The quantity and quality of the gas produced is ana- lyzed. So you will know, even before installation, that your unit will re- liably meet Coast Guard and IMCO standards.

Or if your flue gas is of sufficient quantity and proper quality, you may be able to utilize die Foster

Wheeler flue gas scrubber. This sys- tem employs a highly efficient triplex scrubber that washes, cools and de- sulfurizes boiler stack gases. The clean, processed gas provides an inert gas blanket that prevents ignition for combustible cargoes.

To bring you the best of both systems, Foster Wheeler has paired its fifty years of marine boiler experi- ence with that of Moss Rosenberg

Verft. This Norwegian company has already installed more than 150 generators and scrubbers on ships the world over.

Together, we offer you the most efficient designs available any- where. With proven safeguards that assure only non-combustible gas is distributed.

Since Foster Wheeler offers both inert gas generators and flue gas scrubbers, you can rely on us for an objective evaluation to assist you in the selection of the equipment best suited to your operation.

And no matter which system you specify, you know you're getting a proven performer.
