JUNE 12, 2017 — The Coast Guard Marine Safety Center has issued the fourth U.S. Coast Guard Ballast Water Management System Type Approval Certificate to the BalClor system to China’s Sunrui Marine Environment Engineering Co., Ltd., a subsidiary of China Shipbuilding Industry Company Limited (CSIC).

The certificate was issued after a detailed review of the manufacturer’s type approval application determined that the system met the requirements of 46 CFR 162.060.

The Sunrui BalClor system incorporates a three step process consisting of filtering and electrolysis during uptake and neutralization at discharge. The USCG approval covers fourteen models with maximum treatment rated capacities between 170 cu.m/h and 8,500 cu.m/h.
