A new lightweight oily water separator (OWS) that weighs 30 per cent less than existing equipment and reduces the oil content of bilge water to less than 5 parts per million (ppm) is now available from specialist marine equipment manufacturer Victor Marine, based in West Thurrock, Essex.

The equipment, which easily satisfies the International Maritime Organization’s MEPC 107(49) regulations, has been developed to meet demand for oily bilge water treatment on vessels where weight and size are particular issues – for example, fast attack craft and super-yachts. While a standard Victor Minisep CS0500 OWS weighs 255 kg dry, the same capacity CS Lite version weighs just 169 kg – a weight saving of 30 per cent.

The weight-saving has been achieved by using 5083-grade aluminium instead of mild steel for the major structural elements of the units.

The new equipment incorporates Victor Marine’s well-proven three-stage separation process, which consists of a hydrophobic high-viscosity removal system, an oleophilic coalescing filter element and an adsorption granular media polishing unit. A monitor constantly ensures that water quality meets the IMO regulations and prevents illegal discharges overboard. This system is easy to install and operate and avoids problems associated with the chemicals and membranes found on other equipment.

The CS Lite OWS can be supplied with processing capacities from 6 to 48 m3/day and comes with BV Type Approval and various process options to suit specific installations.
