https://korean-machinery.com///inquiryEstablished in May 2000, TECHCROSS has grown into a leading company in the field of BWMS through continuous research and development.

TECHCROSS originally treated land based water using electrolysis, before BWMS standard is established by IMO MEPC in 2004.

After that, TECHCROSS’ ECS (Electro-Cleen System) obtained the world’s first Basic Approval from the IMO in 2006. TECHCROSS started to sell its products after it gained Final Approval from IMO in 2008. At that time, there were a few competitors, which helped TECHCROSS to hold a dominant position in the BWMS market.

This is a kind of miracle to be a leader company from small venture business in Korea growing with rapid speed. TECHCROSS’s ECS is the most effective disinfection system using electrolysis.

ECS treats all the incoming ballast water by in-situ production of hypochlorite with combined effects of electric shock and hydroxyl radical in the chamber unit.

More specifically, when sea water passes the ECU (Electro-Chamber Unit), maximum 10ppm of hypochlorite is produced in this ECU. At the same time, two more effects occur to increase disinfection efficacy. One is radical which is energy existing just for nano seconds.

Radical attacks cell membrane and increases the disinfection efficacy. The other is ORP (Oxidation Reduction Potential). It also attacks cell membrane of microorganisms with potential difference.

These two effects make holes or bubbles on the surface, so hypochlorite can penetrate inside more easily and perform its disinfection more efficiently. Hypochlorite in the water maintains disinfection efficacy in ballast tank prohibiting regrowth of microorganisms.
