COMPASS WATER SOLUTION’S BILGE WATER SEPARATOR ULTRA-SEP RECEIVES TYPE APPROVAL AS 5 PPM SEPARATOR BY DNV-GLMAR 11 2016
Ultra-Sep bilge water separators are intended for placement in machinery spaces on board ships for oily bilge water separation. A 5 ppm bilge water separator ultra-sep is designed to meet the stringent requirement of TAP 771.60 of DNV-GL’s Type approval programme.
All capacity ranges of the Ultra-Sep Bilge Water Separator have received the certification.
Due to it’s unique design of two stage separation and the applied purification technology Ultra-Sep produces output below 5 ppm content continuously and consistently. The first separation stage consists of a coalescing matrix which effectively removes the free oils from the bilge water. This is followed by a 5 micron depth filter and a proprietary ultra-filtration grade membrane: SPIR-O-LATOR. This last stage prevents any unwanted spillage as this type of membranes functions as a Positive Physical Barrier to free and dispersed oils within the bilge water.
We congratulate Compass Water Solution Inc. with this milestone achievement and are very proud that the system also is available for Clean Design notation vessels.
