Oily Water Separators

Bilge Water Separators

As regulations become more stringent and enforcement increases, everyone, including owners, designers, builders and operators of ships are becoming aware that the oily water separator (OWS) is a serious design specification, operating consideration, and a key personal responsibility.

Separator Spares & Equipment is committed to providing solutions for these needs. We provide equipment, consumables, spare parts, and/or services for coalescing filter OWS, centrifugal OWS, and oily content monitors. Failure is not an option. We are your link to IMO MEPC 107(49) compliance.

What is oily bilgewater?

It is a mixture of water, oily fluids, lubricants and grease, cleaning fluids, and other wastes that accumulate in the lowest part of a vessel from a variety of sources including engines (and other parts of the propulsion system), piping, and other mechanical and operational sources found throughout the machinery space of a vessel.

What is oily water separator?

Bilge separators, also known as oily water separators (OWS), are onboard treatment systems designed to remove the oil from vessel bilgewater prior to its discharge.

How does an oil content monitor function?

The Total Petroleum Hydrocarbon (TPH) meter has the ability to automatically return non-conforming discharge water back to the sump or bilge.  The TPH meter is sometimes called an Oil Content Monitor (OCM) or Bilge Alarm. The recycle solenoid valve and the oil in water monitor (TPH) control the recycle action. The TPH monitor is continually sampling the process stream and is designed to react quickly to any changes in the oil content.

The TPH unit is a 15 PPM oil content alarm monitor that has been tested and approved in accordance with IMO Resolution MEPC.107 (49).
