With its flexible footprint, ease of operation and significant economic benefits, the De Nora Type Approved BALPURE® electrolytic disinfection ballast water treatment system is fast becoming the preferred method of ballast water treatment among ship owners and managers. De Nora BALPURE®ballast water treatment offers new and retrofit vessels with a reliable treatment solution to comply with the most stringent ballast water regulations.
The De Nora BALPURE® system’s unique slip stream treatment approach allows the system to be remotely mounted away from the ballast lines and split into small sub-assemblies to minimize other equipment relocation and additional engineering/ship re-designs. This slip stream technology approach allows for operation in low-salinity, low-temperature water quality environments.
The general formula for generating hypochlorite is simple:
NaCl + H2O + electricity --> NaOCl + H2
salt + water + electricity = sodium hypochlorite + hydrogen gas
