Count on Alfa Laval at Asia Pacific Maritime 2016
Asia Pacific Maritime (APM) 2016, one of Asia’s biggest exhibitions and conferences, will return in its 14th edition, taking place 16-18 March at Sands Expo in Singapore. Visitors to Hall A, Stand No. A-R26, will find Alfa Laval with big news in ballast water treatment, along with exciting developments for new fuels, exhaust gas cleaning and more.
In APM, Alfa Laval’s experts will gather and share their insights and experience on addressing present and forthcoming environmental challenges in Marine industry. With years of experience as a marine solutions provider, Alfa Laval is quantified as the reliable partner to be counted on especially for meeting legislation, adapting to new fuels, reducing costs and optimizing equipment over the long term.
Alfa Laval PureBallast 3.1: New reactor for Alfa Laval PureBallast means opportunities for smaller vessels
The proven capabilities of Alfa Laval PureBallast – which include operation in fresh, brackish or marine water and in low-clarity water with just 42% UV transmittance – are now available to significantly smaller vessels. Alfa Laval’s ballast water treatment technology, can now be used in systems for flows of 87 m3/h.
A variety of vessel types, including offshore supply vessels, will benefit from the extended PureBallast flow range. The lower capacities are enabled by a new reactor, optimized for system sizes from 170 m3/h down to 87 m3/h.
“Lower flow rates will make PureBallast accessible to smaller vessels, whose quality and performance needs mirror the needs of larger vessels,” says Stephen Westerling Greer, Global Business Manager for PureBallast. “In some cases, as in the offshore industry, small vessel needs can be all the more extreme.”
Witness the first appearance of PureBallast 3.1 in Singapore, only at Alfa Laval Stand.
