The Aquarius ECX is a fully automatic electro-chlorination BWMS, specifically designed for operation and installation in a hazardous Zone 1 IIC T4 environment. It holds an ATEX Type approval and the design has been verified by DEKRA Test and Certification (Notified Body 0158).
From an operator point of view it performs in exactly the same way as a standard area electro-chlorination system with added safety features. The ballast water treatment system uses a combination of hazardous area solutions to offer ballast water treatment on tankers and other installations where installation of a system has to be completed in a hazardous area.
The ECX is supplied with a plug & play intrinsically safe barrier box that enables all required signals from the hazardous area to be connected on installation (on the safe area bulkhead). This means that the installer only needs to consider the cable runs as all IS circuits are supplied with suitable barrier protection.

Dedicated Atex solution for tankers
We offer an aft peak bolt-on Aquarius® ECX unit (550m3/hr), with filter, mixer kit and local control panel. If required, this system can be used to treat the water on uptake into the aft peak. Alternatively, a UV system can be used for this purpose. This holds the advantage that it is completely independent of the EC system, which is a more straight forward solution.
