UV systems are one of the most effective and environmentally friendly methods of ballast water treatment. They currently account for around 50% of the market. However, over time, biofilm forms on the surface of the UV lamps, requiring regular cleaning to maintain optimal performance. This cleaning relies on chemicals which must be safely stored and processed to avoid environmental pollution.
The SKF BlueSonic BWMS uses ultrasound frequencies to keep the UV lamps and chamber clean. This not only maintains optimal performance, but it also weakens the undesirable organisms in the ballast water. Free from aggressive cleaning chemicals, SKF BlueSonic is an environmentally friendly solution. The system’s reactors are made from a material that is highly resistant against corrosion and cavitation, offering long lifetime and reducing downtime.
