Knutsen Ballast water Treatment technology


LOGO KBAL 200x190The KBAL BWT system is the only system available on the market that neither uses any kind of chemicals nor any filters. The system is type approved

by DNV GL, Lloyds and ABS.

The pressure vacuum reactor working in combination with the vertical ballast water drop line ensures a sudden pressure reduction from the required 2 bar at the inlet of the P/V reactor, down to a pressure marginally above a perfect vacuum. This sudden pressure reduction eliminates, i.e. pulverizes the majority of the organisms. Any remaining algae or bacteria are effectively eliminated by the UV chamber mounted downstream on the P/V reactor.
