Bulk Carriers

Bulk Carriers

High flow rates and small footprint have rarely gone hand-in-hand
Back to Ships

Think a UV-based ballast water treatment system cannot be sized up for the high flows of your bulk carriers? Want to avoid the use of dangerous chemical systems on your ship, but are also cautious about how much power all of those medium pressure UV chambers take? Look no further, because we have a Hyde GUARDIAN® for you!

Hyde Marine was the first UV-based system to incorporate both Filtrex and Hydac with our product offering to focus on maximizing our ballast throughput while minimizing the power needed to treat ballast.  Our industry leading zero-hold-time requirement allows you to continually move ballast on and off the vessel to account for cargo movements, shifting tides, and changes in the cargo loading plans. Our gravity ballasting and deballasting modes give you the flexibility to allow your cargo loading rates to set the ballast flow rates, and our industry-exclusive Internal Transfer mode makes sure that as you shift ballast in port or during the voyage, the treatment system does not inadvertently think is it being bypassed.  And, since the Hyde GUARDIAN system has been tested in the most rigorous water available, you can always know we will be ready no matter how far up river you need to go in your voyages.

With the lowest power consumption of any UV-based ballast water treatment system on the market (63 kW / 1000 m3 in IMO service), Hyde Marine can treat the high flow rates common to bulk carriers without needing to add a new generator just to run the treatment system.

To learn if the Hyde GUARDIAN is right for you, click on one of the sample systems below, or build your own Hyde GUARDIAN with our product configuration tool and see what type of system best meets the needs of your fleet.

Case Study

Using equipment purchased for a different vessel in their fleet, SMT and Hyde Marine were able to deliver a rapid and effective solution for the timber carrier Mobile Pearl.

First Take
First Take

A ballast pump rated for 1000 m3/hr flow will deliver 1000 m3/hr to the ballast tanks and thus I must rate my ballast water treatment system for 1000 m3/hr, right?

The Reality
The Reality

While the ballast pumps are in fact rated for 1000 m3/hr, a quick review of the pump curve showed very little head pressure at that flow rate.
