The ballast water of ocean going ships has a high chance to generate
negative effects on the marine environment by spreading harmful
or non-native microorganism unless disinfection treatment is taken
before it is disposed into the sea. The negative impacts may include
the destruction of ecological system, damage to fishing industry
or direct attack to human bodies. Ozone is believed to be very suitable
for disinfecting the ballast water thanks to its strong bacteriostatic
action which Micro-Nano-Bubble generator built-in pump optimizes
by transforming the ozone into ultrafine bubbles.
Micro-nano bubble effect on ozone water.
If the ozone water is not ultrafined, ozone effect will terminate
within one to two hours.
Ultrafined ozone water reportedly lasts its bacteriostatic action
longer than one month under an ambient temperature and atmospheric
pressure. (Literature citation)
Impact pressure that the Micro-Nano-Bubble generator built-in pump
generates is strong enough to kill microorganism.
The capacity of the Micro-Nano-Bubble generator built-in pump ranges
from 200 m³ to 500 m³ per hour.
