Alfa Laval delivers the deckhouse as a fully type-approved and pre-assembled solution, complete with the PureBallast 3 Ex system and all internal piping and wiring. That means easy ordering, as well as plug-and-play installation on the weather deck.
Self-contained and ready to connect, a PureBallast 3 Ex deckhouse means less engineering and time in dry dock – which saves you money. Thanks to an integrated booster pump unit (BPU) option, you don’t even have to modify the existing ballast water pumps.
A PureBallast 3 Ex deckhouse is weatherproofed and ready for the real world, with materials and construction that protect your ballast water treatment system over its lifetime. Much more than a container, it has built-in insulation and climate control.
Far different from a container, a PureBallast 3 Ex deckhouse is a specially designed and carefully constructed solution. It’s fully insulated, made from marine-grade steel and delivered with the ballast water treatment system on fixed rails inside. That ensures protection for your PureBallast 3 Ex system and its performance, throughout a lifetime of rough weather and temperature extremes.
Best of all, the solution is plug-and-play, which means easy installation with a minimum of engineering and shipyard work. Only external connections are needed, and everything within the deckhouse is pre-approved by class.
Details matter when installing a ballast water treatment system on the weather deck. The design, materials and construction must all work together to protect the system and its function. See why Alfa Laval’s type-approved deckhouse solution for PureBallast 3 Ex is quality from start to finish.
Installing a ballast water treatment system on the weather deck shouldn’t create problems for your existing ballast pumping system. See how the integrated booster pump unit (BPU) for PureBallast 3 Ex deckhouses ensures sufficient head – without modifying existing pumps.

All we had to do was connect the deckhouse to the ballast pump main line, so it was really very easy. The Alfa Laval deckhouse is fully weatherproof and offers the best protection you could ask for, just as if they system were in the engine room.”
