Oil Monitor/Separator Allows Operators To Meet MARPOL 7 3 / 7 8 Ruling

Regulations set forth at MARPOL 73/78, requiring the installation of onboard oil pollution prevention equipment by October 1986, can be met by oil monitoring and oii separating equipment supplied by McNab, Inc., a U.S. marine instrumentation manufacturer and distributor, according to the company.

Previously available in Europe, the JOWA Oil Content Meter & Alarm System monitors the oil content in bilge and ballast water and initiates an alarm when oil content exceeds a user set contamination level. The monitor is compact, easy to install and operate, and highly accurate and dependable.

The JOWA OIL-A Oily Water Separator, also distributed by McNab, prevents oil pollution in discharge water by reducing oil content to within acceptable levels. The separator is available in capacities ranging from O.l-lO.Om/h and is equipped with automatic start/stop from bilge tank. Over 400 of these units are currently in use, a tribute to the separator's durability and low installation and maintenance costs.

McNab also manufactures torque and shaft horsepower monitoring systems, propeller thrust meters, speed through water logs, computerbased fuel efficiency monitors, salinity and chemical dosing monitors, and marine window wipers.
