The Power-House Oil Separator
Facing the laborious issue of oil contamination in the bilge water of virtually every mechanically driven ship, we developed the Bilge Licker; a device designed for the specific purpose of removing waste oil from the water of any ship’s bilge automatically, without manual intervention.
Bilge Lickers are built with precision crafted aluminum & stainless steel components, and use a specialized tubing system that is able to pick up roughly 20 gallons* of oil in a single day. Bilge Lickers are built to last, and are capable of enduring the most difficult of applications.
How it Works
The Bilge Licker works by taking advantage of a process called ‘capillary action’; this causes only the oil to adhere to the tubing being cycled through the bilge water, and up towards the wiping and collection area. The oil is then passed down through another tube directed towards a reservoir of choice, which may be located next to the unit, or pumped off to a remote waste oil tank.
- Dimensions (Not including tube):
10″(H) x 8″(W) x 9″(D)
- Aluminum & Stainless Steel Construction
- Operates on a 110v AC
- 4′ to 12′ Collection Tube Length (Made to Order)
- Operates on a schedule managed by a Digital Timer
Store Oil Remotely
Because of the massive oil collection rates of our flag-ship Bilge Licker model, we offer an optional Oil Pump accessory to be used to transfer collected oil to a remote waste oil storage tank. Visit our Oil Pump product page for more information.
Automated Oil Collection Schedule
All Bilge Lickers operate on a schedule driven by a digital timer unit which is built-in to the power supply. These timer units may be mounted locally, near the Bilge Licker, or remotely using an extension cable. Length of the extension cable is made-to-order.
Warranty & Service
All Bilge Licker products come with a 3 Year Warranty covering parts and labor. Obtaining servicing or replacement for any of our products is as simple as entering a serial number into our Support Page, which will in-turn connect our customer with their registered dealer.
* 20 gallons of oil per day is an estimate based on a worst-case scenario. The pick-up rate of all Bilge Lickers is determined by the severity of the oil contamination; more oil in the bilge water will equate to greater pick-up rates.
