Abstract:

An oil content monitorcontrol unit system is configured to automatically monitor and control processed effluent from an associated oilwater separator so that if the processed effluent exceeds predetermined in-port or at-sea oil concentration limits, it is either recirculated to an associated oilwater separator via a ships bilge for additional processing, or diverted to a holding tank for storage. On the other hand, if the oil concentration of the processed effluent is less than predetermined in-port or at-sea limits, it is discharged overboard.
