Alfa Laval has a complete approach to meeting your needs – now and throughout the vessel lifetime.
Alfa Laval PureBallast 3 has received an updated type approval from the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG). The new certificate makes it possible for vessels to deballast in United States waters with a holding time of just 2.5 hours – which is only needed when crossing between Captain of the Port Zones.
In partnership with Framo, Alfa Laval has developed a solution for providing additional pumping head when PureBallast 3 Ex is installed in a deckhouse. By ensuring that the PureBallast 3 Ex system can handle its own pressure requirements, the optional booster pump unit (BPU) emoves the need for changes in the existing ballast pumping system, thereby retaining its optimization and the vessel’s cargo offloading rates.
