Alfa Laval gets USCG type approval for largest BWTS

Alfa Laval has received US Coast Guard (USCG) type approval for PureBallast 3 with the largest reactor in its range of ballast water treatment systems (BWTS).

The PureBallast 3 with a 1,500 m3/h reactor size was launched late last year to cater to vessels with large ballast water flows. With USCG type approval for the latest system Alfa Laval customers can select any of the PureBallast 3 range for trading in US waters.

The PureBallast 3 with a 1,500 m3/h reactor size also has IMO revised G8 approval meaning it is suitable for trading worldwide.
