Ballast water treatment
Alfa Laval PureBallast 3.1 is the third generation of the leading ballast water treatment system. Over 1200 PureBallast systems have been sold to date, including more than 300 installed as retrofits. PureBallast 3.1 offers superior performance in all waters: fresh, brackish and marine. It is also the ideal system for low-clarity water, operating at full flow where UV transmittance is as low as 42% PureBallast 3.1 has IMO type approval and AMS approval from the U.S. Coast Guard.
Tailored retrofit solutions
On most vessels there is no existing space or consideration for ballast water treatment. The compactness and flexibility of PureBallast 3.1 simplify a retrofit, but Alfa Laval’s hands-on knowledge and proven working procedures are even more important.
Alfa Laval has worked with retrofit installations for a decade. Our capabilities, accumulated knowledge and flexible project management make us the most qualified supplier for your retrofit needs. We customize each project to meet your requirements, even offering budgeting assistance and financing options.
Cooperation and flexibility
Retrofits involve partnerships, often at a global level. We can work with your engineering department and chosen yard, or we can secure competencies from our own network for engineering support, 3D laser scanning, class approval and more.
Likewise, we can meet your existing docking schedule or arrange for installation during your voyage. As a global organization with strong logistics, we can even move with your project if your trading routes change prior to docking. Our presence and capabilities worldwide ensure a smooth and successful project, even when major changes occur.
Your compliance partner
Alfa Laval is not only the most experienced supplier of ballast water treatment systems, but also a true marine supplier with a global service network and a century-long track record. All that expertise is part of a PureBallast system – and the comprehensive services that support it.
