Large-scale experiments using a hydrocyclone, a self-cleaning 50 µm screen, and a UV unit were undertaken to evaluate the treatment efficiency of these commercially available units for preventing the transfer of unwanted species via ships' ballast water. The water flow through the treatment system was approximately 5.7 m 3 min -1 . The effect of increased suspended solids on these processes was the focus of this research. During each experimental run, 760 l samples were obtained and passed… CONTINUE READING
