Environmentally Sound, Commercial Efficient Wastewater Treatment

Wednesday, November 08, 2000
Quality wastewater treatment is the driving force behind the daily operation of Owens Manufacturing & Specialty Co. For more than 20 years, its Kleen Tank product has worked in the marine and offshore markets to ensure that clean water is the rule, not the exception.

Owens, unlike many other marine manufacturers, was founded to provide marine industry solutions, not vice versa, and its product line has since expanded to additional land-based applications. Owens originally designed Marine Sanitation Devices and systems for small boats, ships and offshore platforms. The need for an environmentally sound and operationally successful packaged sanitation device for commercial business, subdivisions, and single homes prompted the development of our additional plants.

Owens Kleen Tank units are versatile in that they can be engineered to fit most small, hard-to-fit areas while handling a wide range of capacities, a diversity that is not lost on the marine industry, notorious for demanding big production from small spaces.

All models of the Kleen Tank are patented and USCG Certified for Marine and Offshore use. In early 2000, Owens unveiled its latest technological advancement in the wastewater treatment field in Canada, a country well known for its stringent environmental quality standards.

As the Canadian government works toward the goals of eliminating chlorine as a disinfecting solution, Owens president, John L. Kroesser, III, introduced the Ozone System, which was eventually chosen.

A custom-designed Owens Kleen Tank sanitation system which uses an ozonation system was installed on the motor vessel, Osprey 2000, a ferry boat on the Kootnay Lake in Canada. Specifically, the ozonation system uses high-energy ultra-violet light.

The chemical reaction produced generates an extremely effective disinfecting process. The end result is a non-chlorine effluent discharge, rich in oxygen, thus proving beneficial to aquatic life forms.
