Ballast water treatment system
The OPS Ocean Protection System makes ballast water management simple, fast, and inexpensive. The technology produces outstanding results with low technical effort and compact construction. Ballast water is treated immediately upon intake. The primary challenge is eliminating the tiniest organisms.
For this reason, MAHLE Industriefiltration decided on a combined method for its OPS ballast water system, which is based on precision tuning of three system phases: the 1st and 2nd phases provide exceptionally fine filtering, so that low-pressure UV radiation can be used to reliably destroy or disable even the smallest organisms in the 3rd phase.
An overview of the 3 phases:
1st phase: powerful prefilter
2nd phase: continuous filtration
3rd phase: efficient UV sterilization
