Oil removal, drainage, hydraulic filtration: three pillars for operational safety on the high seas
On the high seas, filter systems have three central tasks: fuel processing, bilge water de-oiling and maintaining the cleanliness of lubricating oils and hydraulic fluids in the ship’s engine. Filtration Group has filter system solutions for all application scenarios that not only achieves the required filtration performance, but also adapts to the cramped spatial conditions on ships. If necessary, individual solutions are also developed.
The technology installed on ships must function perfectly despite the adverse external conditions. Filtration Group offers a whole range of high performance industrial filters and separators for hydraulic filtration on ships. In addition to the filter elements for the original filters, Filtration Group offers filtersystems as direct replacements for parts from other manufacturers with the EcoParts series.
When it comes to fuel maintenance and bilge water de-oiling, Filtration Group relies on separation using the coalesce method. This separates oil and water efficiently and works without the addition of chemicals. The residual oil content in the filtered bilge water is below the internationally required level of 5 ppm. Conversely, the clean drainage of the fuel prevents corrosion and deposits in the engine. Filtration Group also achieves excellent results with separation when it comes ensuring the cleanliness of lubricating oils.
Together we are making shipping …
…safer, because we protect the technical equipment on a ship from dirt and corrosion and thus help avoid malfunctions on the open sea
…healthier, because we make sure that all water leaving the ship has been purified in accordance with international regulations
…more productive, because we have designed our filter and separation solutions to be like a favorable flow for the ship: a powerful boost for profitability.
Filter systems and service combine the high quality standards of Filtration Group
Filtration Group filter systems keep the ship’s engine running and help to reduce the environmental impact of shipping on the oceans. Filtration Group masters the challenge of combining maximum performance with minimum space requirements. The optimal product offering around separation, hydraulic filtration and bilge water de-oiling complements an excellent support service: If necessary, the FG technician even stays on board to ensure the functionality of the filter systems at full speed minimizing the downtime of the vessel.
Before it can be drained into the ocean, the water that collects in the bilge in the hull of the ship must be cleaned. Bilge water separators from Filtration Group separate water, oils and solids in the first cleaning phase. The separation of tiny droplets of oil after coalescence reduces the residual oil content to internationally standard values of under 5 ppm. This meets the requirements in National Special Areas and Particularly Sensitive Sea Areas, as well as the “Green Ship” and “Green Harbour” limit values.
Different filter and maintenance systems for fuels and lubricants protect the engine from contamination and ensure reliable and low-emission operation for long periods of time. To prevent corrosion on the engine, a process to separate oil or fuel and water is used, which makes centrifuges and chemicals unnecessary. Filter systems for intake air round out the portfolio for keeping motors clean. The fact that all of the systems only rarely have to be maintained, together with their performance capacity, contributes to the efficient operation of the ship.
Every yacht, every container-, freight- or passenger ship has complex technology that has to work properly despite numerous external influences. For protection of different drives, hydraulic equipment and systems from contamination or corrosion over time, Filtration Group offers a wide-ranging portfolio of filter and separation solutions for any application area both on and below deck. All products can be flexibly adapted to the structural conditions of any type of ship and reliably clean all of the fluids that keep ships running, and productive. It goes without saying that filtration and separation standards comply with international standards.
