Keene Brochure Describes Marine Discharge Control System

A Marine Discharge Control System that prevents the discharge of oily bilge water on inland waterways is described in a new illustrated brochure available from Keene Corporation's Fluid Handling Division.

Features of the system include easy installation with simple piping, disposable filter elements for less maintenance, and no need for backwashing, blow-down or steam cleaning. (A large superstructure decal also indicates the vessel meets all discharge control regulations.) The new eight-page booklet contains descriptions, specifications, diagrams and illustrations for five models of the Keene system for both fresh and saltwater operation. There is also a comparison chart that indicates the system meets American Board of Shipping (ABS) and International Marine Coordinating Organization (IMCO) requirements for foreign and domestic vessels.

For additional information and a copy of the brochure, write to James Sypitkowski, Fluid Handling Division, Keene Corporation, Bohannan Avenue, Greeneville, Tenn. 37743.
