BIO-SEA EASY-TO-FIT

BIO-SEA SMALL FLOW RATE RANGE FOR THE TREATMENT OF BALLAST WATER ON SHIPS

 

The BIO-UV Group has been designing, manufacturing, and marketing ballast water management systems worldwide since 2011. Ballasts are reservoirs used to stabilise ships according to their load.

Two regulations, one international and the other American, require all vessels to be equipped with a ballast water treatment system. The BIO-UV Group obtained the necessary IMO and USCG (American) certifications in order to market its systems worldwide.

The BIO-SEA Small Flow Rate range is specifically designed for smaller yacht type vessels. Compact and effective, it can treat small flow rates with minimal space requirements. It is also customisable (paint in particular) to adapt to the sophistication of a yacht for example.

The technology

The BIO-SEA Small Flow Rate range combines mechanical filtration and ultraviolet (UV-C) disinfection in one completely automated unit. It can manage flow rates from 55 to 2,000 m3/h of fresh water, sea water, or brackish water. It can also treat turbid water since the system was tested and certified to operate at maximum flow in water where UV transmittance is very poor. BIO-SEA systems can be skid-mounted for new vessels or modular for existing vessels with very little available space.
