Ballast Water Treatment
From Product Applications
Treatment of Ballast Water is important in order to prevent the spread of algae or aquatic invasive species. CHLORCEHCO offers Onsite Sodium Hypochlorite Generation Systems suitable for seawater applications as a means to treat ballast water.
The Ballast water treatment process is outlined below:
- The ballast water is first passed through a filter to remove large particles.
- A small portion of this water is then sent to the Sodium Hypochlorite Generator which uses Electrochlorination to make 0.2% Sodium Hypochlorite from seawater.
- The generated hypochlorite is then returned to and mixed with the bulk of the ballast water for disinfection.
