FastBallast Compliance Monitor is on display at the 3rd Ballast Water Management Summit, in Long Beach, California (9th-11th February)
Following hot on the heels of the launch in Singapore and America last year of the new FastBallast Compliance Monitor, it is now on display at the 3rd Ballast Water Management Summit, in Long Beach, CA. 9th-11th February.
‘s Marketing Director, Richard Burt and new Maritime Sales Manager, Stephanie Lavelle, are on hand to explain how using cutting edge optical technology and building on the foundations of over 50 years’ design experience, the CTG FastBallast Compliance Monitor is sensitive enough to detect at the levels required by the IMO D2 standard.
Why is FastBallast causing so much excitment in the market?
FastBallast is unique in that it can operate in both flow-through and static modes. Assessing treated discharge in flow-through mode allows the user to gain a more representative sample, by analysing a larger volume of discharge. Static sampling mode allows for an instantaneous result from a single sample allowing the user to make rapid assessment of compliance.
To ensure that all phytoplankton present within the 10 to 50um range are detected, FastBallast uses a single turnover method as opposed to multiple thus allowing greatest sensitivity.
Designed with ship engineers in mind, FastBallast provides an intuitive Red, Amber, Green compliancy rating on an easy read, touch screen display.
FastBallast is also available as an integrated variant which can be installed alongside Ballast Water Treatment Systems (BWTS). This version provides a continuous update on discharge compliance and can be used as a means of process control for BWTS.
