The Ecochlor® Ballast Water Treatment System (BWMS) uses a two-step treatment process to treat ballast water – filtration followed by chlorine dioxide (ClO2). The system’s effectiveness is not impaired by variations in salinity, temperature, turbidity, organics, and vibration. The reliable system is crew-friendly, easy to operate with low power and engineered for long life. There are no treatment or neutralization requirements with the Ecochor System on discharge. The BWMS is particularly well-suited for mid-sized to the largest ships in the world. Ecochlor has IMO and USCG Type Approval and meets or exceeds their demanding regulatory guidelines.
