Alfa Laval Benelux: PureBallast 3.1

Alfa Laval PureBallast 3.1 is an automated inline treatment system for the biological disinfection of ballast water. Operating without chemicals, it combines initial filtration with an enhanced form of UV treatment to remove organisms in accordance with IMO and USCG limits. The main component of the modular system is an enhanced UV reactor in which disinfection treatment occurs. The special design of the reactor’s synthetic quartz lamp sleeves supports transmission of a broader wavelength spectrum, providing 10% more UV light during disinfection. Combined with the reactor’s internal design, this ensures optimal UV dosage and low energy consumption.

There are several benefits:
– Superior performance in any waters: PureBallast 3.1 offers unmatched biological disinfection performance in any type of water: fresh, brackish or marine.
– Ease of use: PureBallast 3.1 is fully enclosed, fully automated and thoroughly integrated with the ballast water system. The system requires no manual intervention.
– Space-saving inline construction PureBallast 3.1 is an inline system in which the major components (filter and reactor) are incorporated into the ballast water piping.
– Chemical-free operation PureBallast 3.1 meets biological disinfection requirements without the addition of salt or chemicals, even when operating in fresh water.
