Oily Water Separators

Victor Marine’s 80 years experience in providing solutions for bilge water treatment has incorporated the latest technology to ensure that their Oily Water Separators comply with IMO regulation MEPC 107 (49) introduced in January 2005.

Victor Marine can offer two Oily Water Separator models which use unique design features to set a standard above the rest:

* No high speed moving parts which result in less maintenance and lower costs
* No delicate expensive membranes
* No hazardous chemicals, cleaning cycles or back-washing
* Using unique AGM granular media refined to adsorb 60% of its weight in oil contaminants – increases the life of consumables minimising costs and maximising uptime
* Fully Type Approved by Class Societies
* Achieve less than 1ppm oil content under all stringent IMO tests
* Simple operation requires no training for staff

Victor Marine maintain a worldwide network of agents who can provide customers with comprehensive after-sales service. For example, installation, commissioning, technical support, servicing and spares.

Victor Marine also offers ancillary equipment for its oily water separators.


CS Series OWS

The CS series Oily Water Separator is a compact design using the same technology as the VM series for use in smaller restricted engine rooms with a capacity range of 0.25m³/hr to 5.0m³/hr the CS series can handle heavy fuel oil, diesels and emulsified oils and achieves below 5ppm when tested by IMO.


CS ‘Lite’ Series OWS

The Victor MiniSep™ – CS ‘Lite’ Series is the latest addition to our range of Oily Water Separators (OWS). Specifically engineered to be lightweight for use on vessels where the weight of a standard OWS would be an issue i.e. fast attack craft. This model, constructed from 5083 grade Aluminium, offers a 30% weight saving over the standard CS model and is designed to fit the smallest of engine rooms while still maintaining reliable and cost-effective operation for shipboard engineers. The CS Lite can also be supplied with a range of certification and process options whereby our in-house engineering and testing facilities can advise customers on the appropriate solution for their particular requirements.


VM Series OWS

The VM Series Oily Water Separator uses a 3 stage process which achieves less than 1ppm when tested by IMO. Constructed from 316 stainless steel and mounted on a modular skid and has a capacity range of 0.5m³/hr to 4.2m³/hr which can handle heavy fuel oil, diesels and emulsified oil.



Victor Marine offers a range of OWS ancillaries which are highly recommended to ensure longevity and less maintenance for the Oil Water Separators

Yearly Spares Kit

Victor Marine provides yearly spares kits from 1 to 5 years for both the VM and CS series separator.

Victor Marine Stock most spares with agents based worldwide.

Heater for First Stage Vessel

Victor Marine Stock most spares with agents based worldwide.

The separators are designed to work effectively close to 25°C. If the temperature is likely to drop below this temperature then we would recommend a heater to be installed.

50 Mesh inlet Strainer

A single basket filter providing a cost-effective method of protecting the oily water separator equipment. The filter is of cast construction and is supplied with one high quality 50 Mesh stainless steel cylindrical basket. It is to be used prior to the feed pump where the flow can be shut off for short periods to allow the removal of the basket for cleaning. Includes a quick release filter cover for easy maintenance and flanged at both ends for easy installation.

Dry Running Protection for Feed Pump

Victor Marine recommends dry running protection for all of its separators to ensure no damage to the feed pump if the bilge tank runs dry.

Pre-installed within the panel and pump, this is recommended to protect and prolong the life of the separator feed pump.
