Incoming bilge water is drawn through a high-density permanent matrix with a 1 Atmosphere vacuum. The matrix provides approximately 242,300 coalescing points with a surface area of 390 square meters per cubic meter of volume, to increase coalescing efficiency.
Free oil droplets coalesce and rise to the top of the vessel for collection and discharge. Particulate impurities settle to the bottle of the vessel for removal.
The oil discharge sensor initiates the automated first stage cleaning cycle, cleaning automatically during oil discharge. No chemicals, filters or media required.
