Operation

ERMA FIRST FIT BWTS has optimised power consumption, leading into a very low-level average. The power application is constantly adjusted according to the given concentrations of the in situ produced chlorine. At the same time, the high efficiency power supplies - along with the design and materials selected on electrolysers - reduces any unnecessary power losses. Moreover, 'same operational mode' covers all kinds of waters and IMO or USCG regulations.
