Complete Ready to Operate
Usually Skid mounted, these oil water separator units are shipped complete with all the options you specify and are ready to be easily installed and operated without delay. Techs are also available for onsite installation and training assistance.

Custom Specifications
We design these oily water separation systems to meet your needs. Options include size of unit, sand filters, polishing filters, instruments to measure turbidity and pH, UV treatment and almost anything else you need.

IMO Approved/ US Coast Guard Certified
The platform Oil Water Separator is IMO Approved and certified by the US Coast Guard. Units are designed according to your specs to limit oil in discharge water to as low as 5ppm when needed and most commonly to 15ppm. IMO Approval and US Coast Guard certification are standard.

Simple Reliable Design & Operation
These oil water separator systems are designed to be simple. No complicated piping or schemes. Reliability comes as a result of the solid construction and the lack of moving parts.

Small Footprint
The BOSS oily water separator is designed to fit on platforms and other tight spaces. This unit has a small footprint making it adaptable to most situations.

Low Maintenance
While certain application require filtering, the standard oil water separator uses no consumables of any kind including filters. This means lower operating costs and headaches and no worries about filter inventory or replacement. Even with the filtered units replacement is made simple. The rugged construction of the oil water separator and it's lack of moving parts make maintenance minimal.

Self Monitoring / Self Priming
These marine oil water separator units are designed from the bottom up to operate automatically and monitor and adjust to your conditions. Self monitoring and self priming systems mean hassle free operation.

Continuous Performance Monitoring
The TPH Monitor continuously measures oil water separator system performance and automatically recycles if oil in discharge exceeds preset limits.

Stable Platform Not Required
There is no need for these oil water separator units to be installed on a flat, level, or even immobile surface. This makes them ideal for marine applications.

Withstands Heavy Vibration/Motion
Designed for ships and platforms, heavy vibrations, violent motion and up to 30 degree plum tilt cause no problems with performance or reliability on these oil water separators.

Low Operating Cost
Because of the solid construction of these marine oil water separators, low maintenance requirement, and no consumables, the operating costs are incredibly low.

Hard Logic or PLC Controlled
The basic oil water separator unit allows for manual and automatic control without a PLC, keeping the cost of the unit down. However full PLC operation can program responses to any given situation and provide for remote access and control.

High Quality Industrial Components
Each component used in the oil water separators has been individually selected for it's industrial strength, strong vendor support, reliability and low maintenance requirements and durability in the harsh platform environment.


Flows up to 120 GPM
Most of our platforms units are designed to handle 25-45 gpm, but models are available that can handle up to 120gpm. Multiples and combinations of these sizes can be used together to more closely match the needs of your application.

Epoxy Coated Steel Vessel
Vessels on our oil water separator units are constructed from carbon steel to ASME specifications and are coated with an industrial marine strength epoxy coating. Stainless steel options are also available.

Coalescing Filter Media
The coalescing media in the oil water separator can be steam cleaned or cleaned w/o removing the head by using bioremediant in the water.

Centrifugal Pump with SS Housing
Close coupled design of the pumps saves space and simplifies maintenance and installation of these oil water separator units. Stainless steel components on the liquid end provide high quality and corrosion resistance. Top centerline discharge and foot support under casing ensures self-venting and reduces misalignment from pipe loads. High operating efficiency lowers operating costs. High quality mechanical shaft seals and o-rings bring additional reliablility.

Automatic and Manual Controls
When operating the bilge oil water separator manually, the pump and the valves can be operated independently. The discharge can be selected for OFF, OPEN, or BYPASS. In automatic mode the tank will initially fill to the high water level, and operate independently. PLC Controlled units are also available which include options for remote monitoring and control.

Heavy Duty NEMA4X or NEMA 7X Control Panels
NEMA 4X cabinets are made from high impact resistant polycarbonate material and will withstand harsh marine environments. Protection to IP65 is maintained when fastened. Explosion proof boxes NEMA 7 are also available for all marine oil water separator units.

High Quality Oil in Water TPH Monitor
The TPH monitor is calibrated prior to delivery and has a alarm setpoint adjustment that can be set to a known point within the calibration parameters. The TPH Monitors are designed to account for turbidity in the water thereby limiting false positive alarms. Setpoints may be adjusted to a value from 0-50 ppm.

Quality Multipoint Capacitance Level Sensor
The oil water separation units come equiped with a high quality probe with a sophisticated compression seal yielding bulletproof sealing up to 3000 psig. Spring washers maintain the seal particularly during varying temperature and pressure that can degrade other process seals. The Teflon probe insulation is heat-treated which forms the material tight to the probe rod yielding better linearity and eliminating "stress-relieving" (elongation) of the material at elevated temperatures. This probe is truly designed so it can be installed and forgotten.

Reliable RF Point Level Switch
As the oily water covers the sensing switch, a pulse waveform generated by the electronics is altered, changing the relay contact position. There are no moving parts that come in contact with the medium. The level switch is adjusted with the use of water with no oil. This instrument has little sensitivity to oil. This gives it the ability to detect the oil water interface within the oil water separator.

Factory installed Bronze Piping & Valves
All piping and valves are provided in bronze and red brass to be corrosion resistant and withstand the harsh marine environment They are installed at the factory, thus the oil water separators are prepared to be easily installed and operational in a very short time.

Customizable Options
With all the flexibility that these Oil Water Separation systems have built in, we can customize your system to your specific need. If you need 500 GPM we can accomplish this with either multiple units or custom designing a system to your needs. You will find easy access to our engineers, who can help you through solving any oil water separator need.
