Oily Water Separator and Bilge Disposal System

ACCORDING TO MARINE POLLUTION 1973 / 1978 (ANNEX I : REGULATIONS FOR PREVENTION OF POLLUTION BY OIL) THE MARINE ENVIRONMENT BY SHIPS FROM OPERATIONAL OWS are devices use to separate oil from water. A variety of methods to separate oil from water are involved including gravity separation, filters, coagulation/flocculation and floatation. Gravity separation is not always the most successful at oil removal to meet the regulatory discharge requirements. Hence coalescing oil/water separators are essentially enhanced gravity type OWS that are commonly used onboard to achieve the greater separation efficiency.
