The Liberty Bay Overboard Oil Protection System (OOPS) is a low-resistance, specially engineered filter designed to economically remove oil contamination from discharged bilge water.
It is simple to install and use, and prevents environmental damage (and potential fines) by oil contaminated bilge water.
The OOPS is installed between the bilge pump and the overboard thru-hull fitting, similar to installing a sea strainer.
The filter elements absorb any hydrocarbons present, and used cartridges can be disposed of with normal solid waste (in a dumpster, for example) or taken to your local oil-recycle station.
The absorbed oil is chemically bound to the filter media; even if you squeeze the filter element, it will not come out.
Liberty systems can be set up in different configurations, depending on vessel size and needs.
We can help determine the system that is right for you.
• Units are available in three housing and filter cartridge sizes
• Cartridge media retains 3 times its weight in oil
• Removes both dissolved and visible hydrocarbons
• Minimal flow impedance
