Sarex Oil/Water Separators Approved By U.S. Coast Guard —Literature Available

The U.S. Coast Guard has approved Sarex oil/water separators to control polluted waters being discharged from shipboard bilges and shoreside stations. Said to be the first such certification issued by the Coast Guard for oil/water separators, it was granted to Separation and Recovery Systems, Inc. of Irvine, Calif.

Joseph De Franco, president of the company, stated that "the certification was based upon stringent specifications and test requirements for oil/water separators and bilge monitors that were published in the Federal Register in September 1979, and Sarex systems are specifically designed to process dirty water from tankers and other vessels." The U.S. Coast Guard regulations are based on international design and test specifications that have been adopted recently by the I n t e r - G o v e r n m e n t a l Maritime Consultative Organization of the United Nations, of which 102 nations are signatories.
