Automatic Self-Cleaning Water Filters for the

Shipboard Industry

High efficiency, corrosion-resistant, automatic self-cleaning water filters for shipboard filtration systems.

All details at a glance

Forsta shipboard & ballast water filtration systems effectively remove particles and seawater debris from ballast water and other shipboard water lines. The filtration system is fully automated and does not cause an interruption to flow during the short cleaning cycle. Forsta self-cleaning filters for ballast water will easily integrate into a complete ballast water management system (BWMS).

Since 2004 ships have been required to remove and dispose of sediments from areas designated to carry ballast water, in keeping with the ship’s ballast water management plan.

Forsta ballast water filtration removes large, hazardous organisms as well as sediment before water enters the main disinfection treatment.

Filter housings for shipboard filtration applications are available in a full range of materials; Stainless Steel 304L, 316L, Duplex and Super Duplex, and Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic (FRP). Screens and all wetted components of Forsta’s shipboard water self-cleaning filters are constructed from seawater- resistant plastic or other high alloy materials.

Forsta shipboard water filters have a short, automatic cleaning cycle that does not interrupt ballasting or other shipboard water systems. Forsta shipboard filters have a small footprint, and can be installed vertically and horizontally.
