Hyde Marine Launches Hyde GUARDIAN Gold™ Ballast Water Treatment System

Calgon Carbon (NYSE: CCC) announced that Hyde Marine, Inc., its wholly owned subsidiary, introduced the Hyde GUARDIAN Gold™ Ballast Water Treatment System (BWTS), which offers the smallest footprint of any BWTS in the maritime industry.

The IMO Type-approved Hyde GUARDIAN Gold provides a 50 percent reduction in footprint with its new filter. The system is ideal for retrofits as it provides the compact size required by a growing number of ship owners and operators, while still maintaining the robust construction and technological specifications necessary to meet stringent ballast water treatment (BWT) regulations.

Currently, Hyde Marine is the maritime industry’s most experienced solutions provider in the BWT retrofit market with more than 34 projects, of which 21 Hyde GUARDIAN units have already been installed and commissioned.

While the footprint for the Hyde GUARDIAN Gold is 50 percent smaller, the unit features a number of distinct advantages, including continuous and increased flow to tanks during ballasting, ability to handle heavy organic and sediment loading, and up to a 30 percent reduction in peak power consumption.

The Hyde GUARDIAN Gold BWTS is an effective and reliable solution that combines efficient filtration and Ultraviolet (UV) disinfection. Standard systems are available for flow rates from 60 m 3/hr up to 6,000 m 3/hr. With its ability to be skid mounted, the system can be easily installed in existing ships where retrofits are required in crowded machinery spaces or in new ship construction.

The new Hyde GUARDIAN Gold BWTS features a number of design and functional enhancements to allow expanded modes of one-touch operation. They include an advanced touch screen Operator Interface (OIT) and upgraded PLC controller with increased speed and memory capacity, as well as improved controls for tank stripping, gravity ballasting, internal transfer, emergency ballasting, and maintenance.

Other improvements include the addition of UV reactor level and moisture sensors for increased safety, as well as relocation of the UV cooling valve to the top of the UV reactor chamber for improved air removal.
