Evoqua's SeaCURE system is an electrochlorination Ballast Water Management solution that has been developed to meet the IMO and USCG regulations, in all three salinities.

The system is based around three main pillars of filtration, electrochlorination and proprietary ORP-control logic. Utilizsing the trusted Chloropac electrolyzer, the system produces hypochlorite through the electrochlorination process to provide effective ballast water management.

The in situ generation of hypochlorite from natural seawater avoids purchasing and handling of bulk chemicals, reducing operating costs and removing safety risks.
