The CMT Rapid Ballast Water Test Kit provides a simple, rapid method for determining the efficacy of ballast water treatment systems. The kit offers ship operators, Port State Control (PSC), and other compliance officers a simple, effective tool to assess the risk of discharging ballast water.

Complete Solution for Regulatory Compliance
The 2004 BWM Convention guidelines include recommendations on methodologies for sampling and analysis to test for compliance with the convention. Utilizing three instruments, the CMT Rapid Ballast Water Test Kit satisfies the testing protocol for the D1 standard, allows a user to quickly and efficiently decide if a system is in gross exceedance of the D2 standard, and provides a simple solution to test total residual oxidant levels in chemical disinfection systems. A salinity refractometer offers a simple test to confirm that exchange occurred.

A portable, pocket-sized digital fluorometer tests for photosynthetically active chlorophyll, like that found in living phytoplankton, in less than 3 minutes. This will indicate whether or not the treatment of the ballast water system was effective.

A waterproof colorimeter tests for Total Residual Oxidant (TRO) with a range of 0 to 5 ppm free & total chlorine in less than 3 minutes. The handheld fluorometer requires no training before use – place the sample in the cuvette, press “Read” and view the risk of discharge (Fail, High, Low).

Ship operators can easily verify whether the ballast water treatment system has adequately treated water before discharge. Compliance officers can quickly determine whether a ship exceeds D2 standards. In case of positive results, further in-depth laboratory analysis can then be performed.

Ballast water treatment system providers rapidly assess treatment system performance during testing. Ship service providers – diagnose treatment system failures.
