Alfa Laval has enabled its PureBallast BWMS solution for vessels taking less ballast water as a result of a new reactor for its proven UV-filtration system.

The system, suitable for flow rates from 32m3/h to 170m3/h, widens the range of vessels that can be served by PureBallast to include offshore support vessels, for example. Previously the minimum flow rate was 250m3/h.

Alfa Laval says the system is proven for all three water types (fresh, brackish and marine) and is effective in low-clarity water with UV transmittance as low as 42%. The company claims that performance is unmatched by any other BWMS.

Stephen Westerling Greer, global business manager for PureBallast, said: “Smaller PureBallast systems will be a full match for their larger counterparts. The reactors are built with [high-grade stainless steel] SMO for a long and corrosion-free life, and the power management is equally effective. Performance-enhancing CIP [clean-in-place system] is there as well, in a new compact design to meet customers’ need for space savings.”
