Ballast Water Treatment
How does it work?
During ballasting the ballast water flows through Optimarin’s proprietary filter. The filter removes larger organism and particles and back flushes them overboard at the ballasting location. After passing the filter, the ballast water continues through the UV chamber on its way to the ballast tanks. The UV light kills or inactivates organisms, viruses and bacteria in the ballast water.
During de-ballasting the filter in automatically bypassed during de-ballasting, and the water receives a second UV-treatment during discharge as a safeguard to ensure compliance.
Control along the way
The flowmeter is designed for measuring, indication and storing flow passed through volume data of conductive liquids. The flow in the system is also shown on the touch screen in the control panel.
The pressure is also shown on the touch screen in the control panel.
There are two temperature sensors per chamber to ensure safety. The temperature is also shown on the touch screen in the control panel.
Each chamber has a UV sensor making sure there are enough rays to ensure proper treatment. The UV Intensity is also shown in the control panel.
