In operating the separator, the central collection facility allows you process the bilge water before releasing it for monitoring. Once this has been done, the water is then concentrated by cutting the oil from steel forming operation. This leads to a 90% reduction in the water volume. Once the concentration has been done, the oil is then removed from the water by cooling it in a plastic barrel manufacturing plant. Once the oil and the water have been separated, the water is then released into the ocean of the original source.
Alternatively, the oil can be removed from the water as the ship sails. However, this requires that the ship should have an onboard oil water separator. In such a case, if the ship has the facility, then, processing of the oil-water mixture is easy. Else, the separation should be done through the above described criterion. Either way, the separation of the oil from the water saves the voyaging ship from attracting fines over water pollution accusations which might be expensive to pay. On the other hand, with the increasing water pollution and biosafety regulation across various jurisdictions, removing oil prom the sea water ensures that the aquatic life beneath thrives best. On the other hand, the removal of the oil should only be done through the recommended and IMO certified oil water separators. This helps you evade fines over compliance with the regulatory requirements that every sailing ship should comply with. Therefore, before installing your next oil water separator system, be careful; to establish whether it is IMO certified.
