Marine bilge water and ballast water discharges, and disposal of tank wash slops containing oil, can cause serious environmental damages. Most international, federal and state agencies set limits on the amount of oil and grease content allowed in discharges. Many places, especially coastal harbors, are even designated as a NO DISCHARGE ZONE.
Wastewater Evaporators are an ideal solution to the problems with marine bilge water discharge. Draygon’s wastewater evaporators reduce the waste stream to a fraction of the original volume. The clean water can be discharged directly or vented as steam without any environmental damage, while the remaining solids can be packaged and disposed of safely and legally onshore.
Draygon’s highly efficient wastewater disposal evaporators are easy to install and operate. They can be run dry without any fear of damage to the components. If the bilge water has a large heavy oil component, Draygon’s oil-water separator can provide 99.99% free oil removal.
