Alfa Laval is progressing smoothly in its endeavour to submit a US Coast Guard (USCG) type approval application for the product – Alfa Laval PureBallast 3.1. It is expected to be submitted in the coming weeks.
On the plus side, the company has successfully completed all required land-based tests using the current system design.
Alfa Laval has set up a challenging timetable for its prestigious endeavour. It is maintaining the progress smoothly as per this chart.
Accordingly, the company completed the requisite tests of PureBallast in Q2, the tests were performed using the USCG-approved CMFDA/FDA (staining) method.
The tests were conducted at DHI in Denmark using the same hardware, power consumption, and flow as the already market-leading IMO-approved version of the system.
“PureBallast has achieved high-performance results without any change to its components or system design,” says Anders Lindmark, General Manager, Business Centre PureBallast. “The tests show that PureBallast provides reliable biological disinfection at full flow, whether by IMO or US Coast Guard standards.”
