    Householders in Midlands in trial to remedy nation's draughty unblocked chimneys

    Across England there are 9 million fireplaces which are not permanently blocked. Often equivalent to keeping a window open at all times, an unblocked chimney can add significant cost to the typical heating bill as warm air escapes up through the chimney and into the atmosphere.

FASTBALLAST COMPLIANCE MONITOR

A portable and Integrated solution for Ballast Water Monitoring to IMO D2 Standard.

chelsea web nov15Designed using cutting edge optical technology, the FastBallast Compliance Monitor is capable of determining the compliance of treated ballast water at the IMO D2 & USCG Discharge.

Such rapid detection and analysis allow FastBallast to operate in flow-through mode, providing a continuous update on discharge compliance.

Whilst testing static samples can save time on board a vessel, assessing treated discharge in flow-through mode will allow the user to gain a more representative sample, by analysing a larger volume of discharge.

FastBallast displays results using a red, amber, green light (RAG) system on an easy read, touch screen display which can be operated by a gloved hand.

"FastBallast interrogates the photosynthesis process within phytoplankton to distinguish between live or dead cells," commented CTG's Katie Davage
