The ability to ballast or deballast efficiently is important to your vessel. However, many UV-based treatment systems must reduce their flow in harbours with low-clarity water. This is a result of low UV transmittance which may be further impaired by ineffective UV lamp cleaning.
By contrast, PureBallast 3.1 can operate at full flow where UV transmittance is as low as 42%. Its effectiveness is maintained by automatic Cleaning-In-Place (CIP), which removes UV-impairing build-up – without effort from the crew or risk of scratching the lamps.
When sailing under most conditions in IMO-regulated waters, PureBallast 3.1 can operate at just half its potential power, ramping up only for the most difficult low-clarity waters.
