New Enhanced Features Available in Latest Wave MiniBOSS Bilge Water Separator Systems

A new version of the highly popular Wave MiniBOSS IMO separator is now available. The Series II Wave MiniBOSS offers a faster flow rate, providing 0.5m³/hr across all models providing more flexibility for customers. All models of the separator are available for DC or AC power.

The Series II Wave MiniBOSS is an Oily Water Separator (OWS) which ensures that vessels do not discharge any oil or other pollutants, such as microplastics, overboard.

Approved by the IMO, ABS and US Coast Guard, it is MEPC 107 (49) certified for use on all vessels from 400 Gross Tons. The MiniBOSS system ensures that no traces of oil or other pollutants such as microplastics, are discharged overboard thanks to its use of a pre-filter and two Wavestream oil removal filters.

Oily Water Separators are mandatory for larger vessels, and the compact lightweight design of the MiniBOSS system means that many smaller leisure craft, superyachts, workboats, fishing vessels, military and other commercial craft are choosing to fit this system to ensure that they do not create any pollution from their bilges whilst at sea.

The Wave MiniBOSS is a neatly designed bulkhead mounted system with control panel and comprising three filters. The highly sophisticated filter technology removes all trace of pollutants down to 15 ppm which is the IMO worldwide standard. Additionally, the system can be supplied to clean bilge water to 5 ppm if a vessel is operating in a sensitive or Particularly Protected Sea Area (PPSA) as certified by the IMO.

Once fitted, the Wave MiniBOSS is easy to operate. The indicator panel enables users to simply set the required outflow quality. The oil water monitor retains an 18 month log of bilge pumping operations. Replacement cartridges are obtainable worldwide through Wave International’s network of distributors or direct from Wave.

The Wave MiniBOSS OWS is fitted onto vessels operating all over the world, from the recently launched Silverseas Silver Origin cruise ship which regularly visits the highly protected waters around the Galapagos, to windfarm vessels in the North Sea and Navy ships operating in the Indian Ocean.
