Ballast water treatment is all about protecting the environment. But acquiring a ballast water treatment system is all about your needs: being able to sail smoothly, with timely deliveries and fulfilled obligations towards your customers.
Alfa Laval PureBallast 3 is the third generation of the leading ballast water treatment technology – and the first solution to be revised G8 ready. Type approved by the U.S. Coast Guard as well as by IMO, it offers unmatched performance in the most challenging waters. Surrounding it are total solutions in ballast water treatment, built on Alfa Laval’s deep knowledge, extensive resources, strong partnerships and well-developed service offering.
Alfa Laval PureBallast 3 has received an updated type approval from the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG). The new certificate makes it possible for vessels to deballast in United States waters with a holding time of just 2.5 hours – which is only needed when crossing between Captain of the Port Zones.
A new solution, validated with Framo ballast pumps, provides additional pumping head when PureBallast 3 Ex is installed in a deckhouse. By ensuring that the PureBallast 3 Ex system can handle its own pressure requirements, the optional booster pump unit (BPU) emoves the need for changes in the existing ballast pumping system, thereby retaining its optimization and the vessel’s cargo offloading rates.
