Bilge water separation

Bilge water can be a mixture of water, fuel oil, lube oil, hydraulic oil, detergents, oil additives, chemicals, dust, soot and other
substances. This mixture is normally collected in a bilge water tank.

     MPEB Bilge water separator   

    The bilge water 'multiple phases' of separation filtrates the water, oil and solid several times and reduces the special waste for the slugge holding tank as well as providing the required quality for the water that is emptied out into the sea.

    How the MPEB functions: 

    Stage 1 - Multi Phase Separation (MPS)
    The bilge water is pumped through the MPS profiles. The bilge water accelerates and swirls as it passes through the inlet on to the profiles, making the small oil droplets coalesce to form large drops which are then bound by the adhesion force of the profiles. These large drops pass through oil ascent lines into the first oil dome. All solids and heavier substances slide down the profiles into the sludge holding tank.

    Stage 2 - Mechanical Emulsion Breaker (MESB) 
    The water is then pumped through an element from the inside to the outside for fine droplet separation. The fine oil droplets (> 0.5 μm) coalesce in a microfibre bed to form large drops, which are fed into the second oil dome.
