Disinfection solutions for water treatment industry - Water and Wastewater - Water Treatment
Calgon Carbon now offers a world-leading treatment system designed to control the spread of non-indigenous aquatic organisms.
In January 2010, Calgon Carbon Corporation acquired Hyde Marine Inc., a world leader in ballast water treatment systems. More than a decade ago, Hyde Marine began developing a combination filtration/UV disinfection solution to fight the spread of invasive species aquatic organisms. Today, the Hyde GUARDIAN® Ballast Water Treatment System (BWTS) is one of the first International Maritime Organization (IMO) type approved, chemical-free ballast water management solutions on the market.
The GUARDIAN system is designed to meet the needs of ship owners for an affordable, compliant, and easy- to-install treatment solution with low operating costs and proven reliability. The robust design of the system operates on two levels: an efficient, auto-backflushing filter removes sediment and larger plankton, while a powerful ultraviolet disinfection system destroys smaller organisms and bacteria.
Calgon Carbon's Hyde Marine division offers years of installation and operating experience, with hundreds of systems already sold.
