Posted by Michelle Howard

Now in its third generation, the newest Alfa Laval PureBallast ballast water treatment system has been engineered to minimize footprint and installation costs.

Alfa Laval PureBallast 3.1 Compact Flex is the latest addition to the PureBallast family of systems. Based on loose components, it is the answer to space and flexibility needs. Available for flows of 32-1,000 m3/h, it packs the leading ballast water treatment technology into a footprint up to 20 percent smaller than that of PureBallast 3.1. It also reduces installation costs by up to 10 percent, thanks to a plug-and-play concept for quick and easy connection.
"Alfa Laval PureBallast 3.1 Compact Flex is economical, both in its use of space and in its installation," said Anders Lindmark, Head of Alfa Laval PureBallast. "As a result, it removes headaches for both ship owners and shipyards. It's an ideal choice for the vast majority of vessels, combining the smallest possible footprint with superior performance in the widest range of conditions."
Available now, Alfa Laval PureBallast 3.1 Compact Flex joins the existing PureBallast family of ballast water treatment systems adapted to different customer needs. PureBallast 3.1 handles high flows and special requirements, while PureBallast 3.1 Compact offers a skid-mounted option. These systems have U.S. Coast guard type approval, which is also pending for PureBallast 3.1 Compact Flex. According to the manufacturer, all three PureBallast 3.1 systems provide the same performance in fresh, brackish and marine water, including full-flow operation in IMO-regulated waters where the UV transmittance is as low as 42 percent.
