Literature is being offered detailing a compact, highly efficient oily water separator, the latest product being marketed by the Pump & Compressor Division of Hamworthy Engineering Limited of Poole, Dorset, U.K., to combat pollution by ships' bilge and ballast discharge.

Hamworthy spent over two years in research and development of the unit which has been granted IMO approval in accordance with A393(X) and certification by marine classification societies.

The unit is a two-stage device, the first stage being a gravity tank and the second a plate-type separator. Two identical positive displacement pumps are mounted on top of the fabricated steel separator vessel.

Most existing separators pump oily water from the bilges into a separator. This action breaks down the oil into tiny droplets making separation more difficult.

The Hamworthy system draws oil into the separator and uses the natural gravitational differential to achieve a high degree of primary separation.

The unit is built and supplied as a complete module requiring no additional equipment. Ship- yard installation work is limited to connecting electrical and inlet and outlet connections. No filters are required and it is easily serviced. The fully automatic unit has capacities up to 5 tons per hour.
