Drinking Water

Drinking water

The treatment of drinking water on vessels provides a major challenge for ship opperators especially when water qualities can vary from port to port. A direct dosing system that introduces safe levels of ActivSure disinfecting fluids from EcaSafe into a vessels drinking water system provides a very high level of safety when compared to many conventional alternatives Contact us to learn what we do.

Biological hazards include:

• Bacteria. Salmonella typhi, Enterotoxigenic E coli, higella and Vibrio cholerae have been associated with waterborne disease outbreaks on ships;

• Viruses commonly linked to waterborne disease include Hepatitis A and E and Norovirus. Those that infect humans and cause illness via the waterborne route originate primarily from human faeces, although there are some exceptions, such as Hepatitis E that can be derived from some animals; and

• Protozoa of concern in water supplies are Giardia and Cryptosporidium which include zoonotic strains that originate from both human and mammalian faeces.

Installing an ActivSure Industial Solution unit on board a vessel makes it possible to produces an inexpensive disinfectant from water, table salt and electricity called hypochlorous acid (HOCl). This has a very low chloride content and is highly efficient, sustainable and reliable. It simultaneously removes biofilms and prevents their formation.

A typical installation with comprise a generator unit, a small holding tank and a dosing pump. Control modules enable reporting functions to engineering and bridge.
