Below is a typical system layout for a vessel with one ballast water loop. Water is pumped on board by the ballast pump, filtrated by our automatic back flushing 40 micron filter and then subjected to our disinfectant. The disinfectant is produced by our patented C2E unit which is supplied with seawater from a separate loop. TRO levels in the water are measured and the system automatically adjusts the disinfectant production in order to reduce power consumption, in addition to ensure that the ballasted water is treated according to the regulations.
