The BallastMaster marineX is a highly efficient mechanical and physical system for treating ballast water in a large range of capacities, with higher capacities achievable by placing multiple units in parallel. The 2-stage system combines mechanical pre-filtration with subsequent disinfecting of the ballast water by UV-C lamps.

Initial cleaning by mechanical filtration

During ballasting, a mechanical filtration process removes large organisms and sedimentary particles. This prevents particle deposits from accumulating in the ballast water tanks and also enables optimal results in the second stage, the ballast water disinfecting. The automatic backwash thoroughly cleans the filter, ensuring relentless treatment and longer run times.

Disinfection by means of UV-C

In the second stage, the pre-filtered ballast water is disinfected by UV-C radiation. As the water flows through the array of TrojanUV Solo Lamps™, microorganisms are inactivated. During deballasting, water bypasses filtration and is again directed through the UV chamber for treatment.

 

Robust type approval

BallastMaster marineX is on course for USCG type approval. The product suite is IMO type approved and has received USCG Alternate Management System (AMS) acceptance for all water qualities: freshwater, brackish water and marine water.
