Transport of Hydrogen Gas to a Ballast Water Tank

An investigation of the effects of Hydrogen Gas transport in electrochemically treated Ballast Water has be initiated by Menatech Limited in order to understand the potential for developing dangerous concentrations of Hydrogen in a Ballast Water Tank.

The analysis was carried out to facilitate the design of a high efficiency 2 phase separator constructed to exceed the minimum theoretical efficiency by a sufficient margin. This allowed the client to pass all stages of the Type Approval process whilst also being fully compliant with the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) Ballast Water Performance Standards.
