  • USCG and IMO Type Approved [BWM Code] 
  • Filter-free design
  • Complete control over treatment = complete compliance

This USCG/IMO Type-Approved BWTS is fundamentally different from other inline ballast water treatment systems.

The Scienco® InTank® treats and neutralizes ballast water in the ballast tanks during the voyage, which allows for normal ballasting and de-ballasting operations in port. It is the only Type Approved “in voyage” ballast water treatment system.

How does it work?

A small percentage of ballast water is circulated from one ballast tank at a time. The active substance, Sodium Hypochlorite (NaOCl), is added to the circulation and returned to the tank. Sodium Hypochlorite is produced on board by an electro-chemical cell (EC), or from bulk-chemical storage (BC). The treatment is monitored using the TRO levels in the circulated ballast. Treatment is completed during the voyage, and neutralization is completed hours before discharge.
The Scienco® InTank® provides commercial vessels with the highest confidence in compliance with the least impact to operations.
