Ecochlor is the only company utilizing the patented chlorine dioxide (ClO2) treatment technology for ballast water and does not require treatment or neutralization on discharge. The system’s efficacy is not impaired by variations in salinity, temperature, turbidity, organics, and vibration.
“Not only does the Ecochlor BWTS have low power consumption, it is highly effective in all types of waters,” said Steve Candito, Ecochlor’s CEO. “The system was engineered with many safety and redundancy features, such as pressurized double wall storage tanks, flow controls and a vacuum mixing chamber where the chlorine dioxide is generated on-demand. Along with supplying a highly effective, safe technology, Ecochlor is committed to offering a more efficient retrofit experience. We are pleased to now list USCG Type Approval Certification among our many achievements.”
