Techcross is planning to launch a new technology that aims to minimize the effect of the turbidity issue when measuring the concentration of TRO (Total Residual Oxidant). As explained, this technology can improve product performance and broadening choices in electrolysis water treatment.
In the case of electrolysis water treatment, the process of maintaining a certain level of disinfection efficiency or measuring residual chlorine (oxidant) concentration is essential. It is because these measurements can determine the level of electric power to be applied and amount of neutralizing agent used.
The electrolytic ballast water treatment system is no exception. Particularly, as compared to measuring a relatively clear water quality in a fixed space such as a swimming pool, it is important for ships travelling every port in the world to ensure constant performance in any harsh environment.
Accordingly, the new technology by Techcross is expected to be a good alternative for ships, especially for customers operating to areas with high turbidity such as Shanghai, China, and for water quality inspection agencies.
This can be supported by the results of the test conducted by Techcross which showed that measurement can be performed in a very turbid water quality up to 850 NTU with an improved treatment results, which is expected to save the electricity cost to prevent unnecessary measurement in very turbid water quality.
This new technology by Techcross has been applied for patents in South Korea and is currently conducting final performance tests. It is scheduled to be released to the market by May after completing all of the tests required for approval.
