Hyde Marine Announces that Hyde GUARDIAN-US™ Ballast Water Treatment System has been submitted for USCG Type Approval
Hyde Marine宣布，Hyde GUARDIAN-US™压载水处理系统已提交至USCG进行型式认证
PITTSBURGH, PA – 01/09/2020
The Hyde GUARDIAN-US (Universal Service) has successfully completed all of the requirements of the Independent Laboratory and now is under review by the U.S. Coast Guard for Type Approval under 46CFR162.060
Hyde Marine, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Calgon Carbon Corporation, has announced that they have successfully submitted their application for U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) Type Approval of the Hyde GUARDIAN-US product in accordance with the requirements of 46 CFR 162.060-14. This milestone represents the final step before the USCG’s final determination and indicates that the Independent Laboratory has accepted all testing and has recommended that the system meets the requirements for discharging ballast within the waters of the United States.
卡尔冈炭素的全资子公司Hyde Marine宣布，他们已按照《美国联邦法规》第46章第162.060-14节的要求，成功提交了Hyde GUARDIAN-US产品的美国海岸警卫队（USCG）型式认证申请。这一里程碑代表进入到USCG作出最终决定前的最后一步，表明独立实验室已接受了所有试验结果，并认为该系统满足在美国水域排放压载物的要求。
Testing of the system was conducted in challenging ‘sweet’ fresh water with less than 1 psu, with water down to a UVT level in the 40’s, and with the minimal holding times able to be processed by the test facility during the test cycles. The system was also proven to have no potential for regrowth in the ballast tanks as many tests were conducted with extended hold times.
Hyde Marine在具有挑战性的淡水中对该系统进行了测试，淡水盐度小于1 psu，在40秒内淡化到UVT水平，并且测试设备在测试周期内能处理的保持时间尽量最短。经证明，该系统能确保完全杀灭压载舱内生长的生物，因为众多测试均在延长的保持时间内进行。
Hyde Marine is one of the world’s most successful ballast water treatment (BWT) technology companies with more than 500 of its ballast water treatment systems sold to date. The Hyde GUARDIAN-US BWTS uses space efficient filtration and ultraviolet disinfection to treat ships’ ballast water to prevent the spread of invasive species from port to port. The design of the system closely mirrors the existing Hyde GUARDIAN-Gold product, and customers can easily upgrade their existing equipment to meet the new treatment standard.
Hyde Marine是世界上最成功的压载水处理（BWT）技术公司之一，迄今已售出500多套压载水处理系统。Hyde GUARDIAN-US BWTS使用空间高效过滤和紫外线消毒来处理船只的压载水，以防止入侵物种从一个港口传播至另一个港口。该系统的设计与现有的Hyde GUARDIAN-Gold产品非常相似，客户可轻松升级现有设备，以满足新的处理标准。
“Hyde Marine is very pleased to have completed this process,” said Chris Todd, Executive Director of Calgon Carbon UV Technologies. “During shipboard testing, we used one of our first customers as an upgrade platform to prove we could retrofit one of our earliest systems to our newest product. Our test plans proved a strenuous test of our system’s functionality, conclusively proving our ability to modulate flow to ensure proper dose, and demonstrating the effectiveness of our industry-exclusive Treatment Alarm.”
Calgon Carbon UV Technologies的执行董事Chris Todd表示：“Hyde Marine对成功通过这一流程感到非常高兴。“在船上测试期间，我们将首批客户中的其中一个客户作为升级平台，以证明我们可将其中一个最早的系统改造成我们的最新产品。通过我们的测试计划，可看出我们的系统功能经受了严苛的测试，最终证明了我们有能力调节流量来确保适当剂量，并证明了我们行业专用处理报警器的效果。”
The Hyde GUARDIAN-US BTWS was tested with water containing organism counts far exceeding IMO and USCG requirements and was tested with the most demanding water conditions to challenge the limits of system performance. “We are confident that our system can perform to the expectations of our clients anywhere their vessels may go,” said Todd.
Hyde GUARDIAN-US BTWS测试用水所含有机物数量远远超过IMO和USCG的要求，并且测试中选用了最苛刻的水条件，以挑战系统性能的极限。Todd表示：“我们相信不论客户的船舶去往何处，我们的系统均能达到客户的期望。”
Hyde Marine’s new system features full, automatic flow regulation to ensure that as water quality changes, the system manages the entire treatment process to achieve compliance. Hyde Marine has also developed and tested an exclusive alarm which provides crews an indication that the system may be operating outside of the as-tested boundaries. This alarm allows crews to initiate contingency measures for potentially non-compliant water before arriving at the discharge port. This ensures that deballasting and cargo loading are not impacted.
Hyde Marine的新系统功能全面，能自动调节流量，以确保该系统可根据水质变化管理整个水处理过程，以达到合规要求。Hyde Marine还开发并测试了一种专用报警器，该报警器可提示船员系统运行状况可能超出标准。该报警器允许船员在到达卸货港之前对可能不符合要求的水启动应急措施，从而确保卸压载和货物装载不受影响。
“Hyde Marine has developed a ballast water treatment system that will change how people see our industry,” says Jim Coccagno, Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer of Calgon Carbon, and President of Calgon Carbon UV Technologies. “Finally, a ship owner will know whether or not his treatment system is working – no matter where the ship is operating and what the water quality is. And, it is a system that anyone can easily use.”
“Hyde Marine开发了一种压载水处理系统，该系统将改变人们对我们行业的看法，”卡尔冈炭素执行副总裁兼首席商业官、Calgon Carbon UV Technologies总裁Jim Coccagno说道。“最后，船主可以清楚了解其处理系统是否工作-不管船只在哪里航行，水质如何。而且，任何人均能轻松使用该系统。”
Hyde Marine will now await the results of the U.S. Coast Guard’s review.
