AWD reduces water content in sludge prior to burning it in incinerator.
Oily sludge mixture from purifyers and bilge drains consists of up to 80-90% water. AWD removes up to 80-90% of free water from the sludge.
Incinerator burns well up to 20-30% of water - higher content of water makes the incinerator inefficient.
A safe Automatic Drain Process gives a low risk of draining oil to the bilge system. A small investment, easy to install on incinerator settling tank.
A gravitational settling device and an oil detection system separates free water from sludge and ensures that if some oil is directed with the water, oil detection system stops the drain process.
Focus has been on a cost effective soloution to separate water out of sludge.
No focus on the quality of the water, as OWS and/or bilge water separators will treat the water further.
