Bromination Systems From Everpure Provide Reliable At-Sea Water Treatment

Providing passengers at sea a safe, reliable potable water supply is critical. The U.S. Public Health Service and the National Sanitation Foundation, the leading organizations concerned with drinking water quality, have approved two methods of water treatment aboard ships: chlorination and bromination.

Everpure, Inc., Westmont, 111., is a technological leader in the development and manufacturing of bromination equipment for use aboard ships. The company is currently supplying the second generation of bromination feeders for the U.S.

Navy's newest ships, such as the Abraham Lincoln (CVN-72), Nimitz Class aircraft carriers, the Coastal Minehunter MHC-51 Class, and the Fast Combat Support Ship AOE-6 Class.

According to Everpure, bromination equipment can be found aboard the U.S. Navy surface fleet and U.S.

Coast Guard vessels, and on the majority of offshore oil platforms in the Gulf of Mexico.

Bromine, the company contends, is virtually tasteless and effective over a wide pH range. Also bromine is supplied in easy to change cartridges, has a two-year shelf life and is not toxic or flammable in storage.

No chemical measurement or physical handling of the product is necessary, since bromination equipment features an automatic feeder.

Manufactured of stainless steel, brass and bronze components, bromination systems have an average 20-year service life. And although brominators are initially more expensive than other systems, Everpure believes that, because of lower maintenance and operating costs, future cost savings outweigh these differences.
