Marland Licensed To Build And Market New Oil/Water Separator

Bob Daniels, vice president of Marland Environmental Systems, Inc., has announced the recent signing of a license agreement with Skimovex B.V., a Netherlands research and development company. Under the agreement, Marland received exclusive rights to manufacture and market the Inverto® oil/water separator for ships' bilge and ballast waters.

Conceived as a major improvement on existing separators, the Tnverto device fits well into Marland's growing line of high-reliability, a d v a n c e d - t e c h n o l o gy products for the worldwide maritime industry.

Totally self-cleaning, the Inverto utilizes two independent beds of a special granular material to coalesce small droplets of oil into large globules that are easily separated by gravity. Also acting as filters for solids suspended in bilge waters, these beds are back-flushed periodically as the flow of influent is reversed.

Although the unit is more compact than separators using conventional filtering techniques, its unique granular medium is said to permit far higher flow rates.

The Inverto is capable of providing an effluent with oil content far below 15 ppm, regardless of the degree of contamination of the influent. This places it comfortably within IMCO standards.

The Inverto separator, in capacities from .25 to 5.0 tons per hour (1-22 gpm), will be manufactured at Marland's Wisconsin factory and distributed through the firm's worldwide sales and service network.
