The Hyde Marine Separator uses a proven method for gravity separation of oil from bilge water to less than 15 ppm. The separator exceeds all performance requirements of USCG 46CFR 162.050 and IMO Resolution MEPC.60(33) and is certified by the USCG and the British Department of Transport
The standard separator is constructed of high-quality, carbon steel
and coated with marine epoxy for corrosion protection
. All separator piping connections are galvanized steel or high strength PVC.
The basic system consists of the oil/water separator
, supply pump/motor assembly and controls. Optional items include bilge level switches, clean water discharge pump, USCG certified oil content monitor
, three-way diverter valve, or other customer-specified controls and alarms.
Each unit is compact, self-contained and simple to operate. The ship's bilge suction is connected to the separator. The oily water is directed across the separator's porous media
bed for coalescing and accelerated gravity separation. Separated oil flows from the unit's oil weirs to the vessel's waste oil collection
tank. Clean water is discharged overboard by gravity or through an optional discharge pump.
