The patented Oil Conveyor helps the Oily Water Separator OWS to handle bilge water without problems. Consists of two main components:
- Conveyor with oil absorbing mops which skim the oil, grease, soap and impurities from the bilge surface.
- Settling tube which further treats the collected mixture from the Conveyor.
In the settling tube the mixture is separated into waste oil and water. The water is returned to the bilge tank and the waste oil goes into the waste oil tank.
OC is made using corrosion resistant stainless steel.

"Before installation of Oil Conveyor engine crew hardly could run Oily Water Separator. Now the OWS runs all the time, even when the ship is in open sea".

"From barely being able to use the OWS we can now relese our bilge water through OWS without problems. The average value at ppm-meter is 2-4. In 2011 we delivered 100 tonnes of contaminated bilge water. However in 2012 there were 25 tonnes of waste oil".

"In the first two days OC in the bilge tank removed 50 liters pure oil from the bilge water and 1.600 liters water from the sludge tank. OC installation saves the company expenses related to handling and landing contaminated oily water and sludge".

"Since we got OC we haven't discharged any contaminated water. In addition the OWS filter consumption has dropped drastically. For years we struggled to find a solution to treat our bilge water, so we could lead it overboard through OWS. On seismic ships the very emulsified condensed water from the air compressors causes large problems for the OWS. The condensed water is led to the bilge tank. In order to preclean the bilge water we installed a filter system, but the system was expensive both to purchase and to run in terms of filter consumption and labour. Thus we disposed hundreds of tonnes of contaminated water for a high cost, but this didn't work for us. But after we installed the OC in the bilge tank the problem was solved. It skims the free oil from the bilge water prior to the OWS. The OC takes up to 20 litre of oil/hour from the bilge. The collected oil goes to the incinerator for burning leaving the bilge water so oil free that OWS has no problem handling it".
