Severn Trent De Nora Showcases Omnipure System
Severn Trent De Nora has produced a capabilities video on the new Omnipure™ Series 55 marine sanitation system, the only marine sewage treatment system that oxidizes sewage in an electrochemical cell as well as generates sodium hypochlorite for the disinfection of the sewage streams.
The video is available at http://www.severntrentservices.com/denora/omnipure-series-55/index.aspx.
Introduced in March, the system received Bureau Veritas process attestation certification for IMO Resolution MEPC.159(55) in April. The MEPC.159(55) effluent standards, adopted by the International Maritime Organization’s Marine Environment Protection Committee, apply to all sewage treatment systems installed on board on or after January 1, 2010.
The Series 55 systems provide electrolytic treatment of both black and gray water through a patented and certified treatment process. Like other Omnipure products, this series produces a sodium hypochlorite disinfection solution from seawater in the presence of sewage to treat all sewage. Electrolytic treatment of marine sewage eliminates chemical storage issues, dosing equipment, and costs associated with the use of hazardous chemicals.
