Booster pump solution for PureBallast 3 Ex

A new solution, validated with Framo ballast pumps, provides additional pumping head when PureBallast 3 Ex is installed in a deckhouse. By ensuring that the PureBallast 3 Ex system can handle its own pressure requirements, the optional booster pump unit (BPU) emoves the need for changes in the existing ballast pumping system, thereby retaining its optimization and the vessel’s cargo offloading rates.
