Removing zooplankton (particularly hard shelled organisms) by chemical
means can require very high doses or long exposure times. High concentrations
of biocide can encourage corrosion. To eliminate
this risk, the SeaCURE™ system employs a filtration system.
Filtration at 40 microns ensures larger organisms and sediment are effectively removed during ballasting.
A fully automated self-cleaning filter provides reliable non-stop operation at high sediment loads reducing associated tank cleaning cost and allowing for the effective treatment of smaller organisms at lower biocide levels.
Surfaces in contact with seawater are often prone to biofouling. The accumulation of marine organisms on filter screens may lead to complete filter clogging and the associated system downtime. To eliminate the risk of biological growth on the filter screens, SeaCURE™ system employs a proprietary filter protection system where a continuous low dose of Sodium Hypochlorite is injected at the filter inlet when the BWMS is in use.
