RGF Filtration System Granted USCG Approval

After recent testing was completed by Underwriters Laboratories, the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) granted approval of RGF Marine Environmental Technologies, Inc.'s Model 4000-C bilge mounted oil/water separator.

This fully automatic oil/water filtration system — constructed of polyethylene, non-ferrous materials was designed for commercial vessels and reportedly has the capacity to process up to 1,100 gallons of water per day.

The system uses an advanced matrix filtration and coalescing system to remove oil, fuel and other petroleum hydrocarbons from bilge water. It was reported that during the testing of the filtration system, a discharge of 0.78 ppm was maintained, which exceeds the 15.0 ppm USCG standard. RGF employees display the USCG-approved oil/water separator for commercial vessel applications.

The RGF Env i r o n m e n t a l Group consists of six companies all dedicated to the design, engineering, manufacturing and sales of pollution prevention equipment. For more information on RGF Circle 3 0 on Reader Service Card
