USCG APPROVED the Humphrey
CERTIFIED PROTECTION FOR THE FUTURE
THE Model 12 (two components)
Designed for vessels with limited space
F-12 Filter: 12 1/2"1*12 l/2"h
D-12 Digestor: 27"lxl5"wxl2"h
Weight: 401bs. dry, 1151bs. wet
Power: low draw 12 volt system drawing 6 amps or 110 volt drawing 10 amps
Unique Simple Process
Sewage flows from the head directly into the
Digestor(s) where it makes its way through a series of baffles. It is broken down and dissolved by natural bacterial action during this stage.
The resulting liquid (effluent) is then pumped through the Filter and passes through the chlorinator, where the final stage of purification and deodorization takes place.
Upkeep simply requires an addition of the Humphrey
Activator flushed through the head periodically, a spot check on the chlorine pellets and filter. Thats it.
No Muss, No Fuss!
Models available for any crew size
