ERMA FIRST S.A. is a Greek company which was established for the purpose of providing to the marine, shipping and shipbuilding industry worldwide turnkey environmental solutions, offering the innovative ERMA FIRST Ballast Water Treatment System (BWTS).
ERMA FIRST BWTS is an autonomous and modular system, developed and designed to meet even more stringent standards than the D-2 ones of the International Convention for the Control and Management of Ships’ Ballast Water & Sediments. It uses an advanced filtration and cyclonic separation system, during uptake, for the efficient removal of large organisms and sediment. A combination of the system’s major components results in a System, able to treat ballast water flows, ranging from 50 m³/h up to 3,000m³/h per ballast pump.
ERMA FIRST has also introduced the Retrofit Generation, ERMA FIRST BWTS FIT. The new model serves bigger ballast pump capacities without disclosing it through smaller flow rates, where the installation of ERMA FIRST BWTS is not feasible. ERMA FIRST BWTS FIT is based on whole flow electrolysis from the lately developed electrolytic cells which are already used on the existing model. The new cells are able to operate in low salinity and low temperature waters which broads it operation limits. The major change of the model is the replacement of the double separation stage, pre- filter and innovative hydrocyclones with a 40 microns mesh automatic back flushing basket filter. ERMA FIRST BWTS FIT operates for all pump capacities, for all available spaces, it’s flexible, it’s simple, it FITS for purpose.
