Soda Lime Case Studies
The Design of Life Support Systems for Submarines (Military)
DCNS is a major export manufacturer of diesel-electric/hybrid AIP submarines and a major technology driver for Navy submarine manufacture.
During the trials of the boats for the Royal Malaysian Navy in December 2008, the performance of the CO2 removal units was found to be lower than required on this class of submarine.
DCNS were satisfied that with the support from Molecular Products technical team and that the CO2 systems supplied were working to full specification and met all their requirements. The boats in question were subsequently delivered to the Royal Malaysian Navy.
