Abstract

The article presents the results of the tests carried out by the RMRS-certified NPO ENT test laboratory on the decontamination of the two types of phytoplankton by the ballast water ultraviolet radiation (BWT-UV) control system.
For the comparison of the characteristics, including efficiency, the tests of two types of BWT-UV-250 scale models (water flow of 250 m3/h) with the application of low pressure (LP) mercury gas-discharge lamps and a middle pressure (MP) lamp have been carried out. The experiment showed that the efficiency of decontamination of the two test objects by the scale models (water flow of 10 m3/h) with five LP lamps 127 Weach and with one MP lamp 3.2 kW is identical.
Mathematical modeling has been executed and calculations of decontamination efficiency have been carried out using the method of computing hydrodynamics. The agreement of both experiments results and calculations justifies designing and the ship tests of the projected BWT-UV-250.

Keywords: ships' ballast water, scale model, low and middle pressure mercury lamps, phytoplankton, computer model, method of computing hydrodynamics, test laboratory
