Sludge Treatment System MSPX 303

Cleaning system for oily waste from oil treatment systems

The Alfa Laval MSPX 303 system offers a fully integrated and modularized system for the de-oiling and de-sludging of oily waste. The reduction of oil content with this system secures the efficient operation of your bilgewater system. Application The MSPX 303 Sludge Treatment System is designed to handle sludge from oil treatment systems in diesel engine installations. The sludge consists of a mixture of water, oil and solids. In the MSPX 303 separator this mixture is separated into its main constituents. System concept The key components of the MSPX 303 Sludge Treatment System are: • • • • • • • MSPX 303 separator. HEATPAC EHMS electric heater or S/T heater. EPC 41 control unit. Feed pump. Starters for separator and feed pump. Double strainer. Conditioning module MP 205 (optional).

Features MSPX 303 separator • Separation of oil, water and solids simultaneously from oil sludges of varying composition and density without adjustment. • Integral paring disc pumps for continuous discharge of separated oil and water. • Unique separator bowl design. • Separate outlets for oil, water and solids. • Automatic start and stop sequence. Benefits • Substantial savings in total sludge handling cost. • Maximum separation of water prior to discharge to the collecting tank. • Maximum recovery of oil for direct use in boiler or for incinerator disposal. • Minimum sludge accumulation in bowl ensures long intervals between service. Throughput capacity The throughput capacity of the system is from 200 l/h to 500 l/h dependent on the use of separation conditioner MP 205.
