New Oily Water Separator Exceeds USCG Standards —Literature Available

A multi-chambered, g r a v i ty type oily water separator that discharges bilge water overboard and exceeds U.S. Coast Guard pollution control requirements is being marketed by Microphor, Inc., Sacramento, Calif. The company's new separator utilizes the straight coalescing method to remove oil from water. The device is available in seven sizes with capacities ranging from 1 to 1,322 gallons per hour. I t s compact shape makes for easy fitting and handling onboard, states the company.

Automatic oil drain and air deflator valve are located on the outside of the separator, ensuring continuous and unattended operation.

Oil is separated from water by the difference in specific gravity.

Oily water from the bilge enters the unit by pump action and is roughly separated in the first chamber. Separation is completed by coalescing action in the remaining chambers. The unit is said to require no messy and expensive filter changes. Corrosion and oxidation resistance means longer service life. The device has been approved by the Inter-Governmental Maritime Consultative Organization (IMCO) and certified by the U.S. Coast Guard.
