Innovative technology clears the path to success for shipping

When you're on open seas, having the right process for handling water - below the keel and on board - is essential. With optimal solutions for deoiling and dewatering, Filtration Group meets the requirements for economical and ecologically shipping.


The separation and filtration systems from Filtration Group combine maximum efficiency within the smallest space and, already today, meet the standards of tomorrow. A wide-ranging palette of quality products combines quantity and quality in an all-round satisfying result for our customers. As our portfolio has been growing for decades according to customer requirements and our experience, we always have the right product for every type of ship. If not, we will find a solution.

Whether on the open sea, in coastal waters or on rivers, the reliability of all systems is essential in navigating through the demands of profitability and environmental compatibility. For that reason, separation and filter systems from Filtration Group are designed for a long service life. Along with long maintenance intervals, innovativeness and excellent service provide additional reliability. Insist on quality and you will have smooth sailing.

Together we are making shipping ...

…safer, because we protect the technical equipment on a ship from dirt and corrosion and thus help avoid malfunctions on the open sea

...healthier, because we make sure that all water leaving the ship has been purified in accordance with international regulations

...more productive, because we have designed our filter and separation solutions to be like a favorable flow for the ship: a powerful boost for profitability.

Applications

We clear the decks

On a ship, space is a valuable resource. That's why at Filtration Group we always follow the principle of "as much as needed, as little as possible" in determining the dimensions of our filter and separation systems. Just as important to us is the unlimited functionality of our products over many sea miles. The clean separation of water and operating fluids ultimately affects two important cycles: the ship propulsion and the ecosystem.

Oily water separators

Before it can be drained into the ocean, the water that collects in the bilge in the hull of the ship must be cleaned. Bilge water separators from Filtration Group separate water, oils and solids in the first cleaning phase. The separation of tiny droplets of oil after coalescence reduces the residual oil content to internationally standard values of under 5 ppm. This meets the requirements in National Special Areas and Particularly Sensitive Sea Areas, as well as the "Green Ship" and "Green Harbour" limit values.

Systems for engine maintenance

Different filter and maintenance systems for fuels and lubricants protect the engine from contamination and ensure reliable and low-emission operation for long periods of time. To prevent corrosion on the engine, a process to separate oil or fuel and water is used, which makes centrifuges and chemicals unnecessary. Filter systems for intake air round out the portfolio for keeping motors clean. The fact that all of the systems only rarely have to be maintained, together with their performance capacity, contributes to the efficient operation of the ship.

Hydraulics and lubrication

Every yacht, every container-, freight- or passenger ship has complex technology that has to work properly despite numerous external influences. For protection of different drives, hydraulic equipment and systems from contamination or corrosion over time, Filtration Group offers a wide-ranging portfolio of filter and separation solutions for any application area both on and below deck. All products can be flexibly adapted to the structural conditions of any type of ship and reliably clean all of the fluids that keep ships running, and productive. It goes without saying that filtration and separation standards comply with international standards.

Throwing off ballast for the environment

In order to protect the environment and meet IMO requirements, six ships of a large shipping company in Hamburg were to be equipped with a ballast water system. The Filtration Group designed an OPS-800 system which, among other things, guaranteed energy-efficient sterilisation and optimum adaptation due to its modular design.

FG coalescer filter elements for high pressure

The latest generation of large common rail engines operates at pressures of up to 2,500 bar. Long test series confirmed that the FG coalescer filter elements are ideally suited for the filtration and dewatering of diesel fuels. Thanks to our KFWA system, reliable and fully automatic filtration and water separation on board is ensured.

Safe on the oceans

On the high seas ships are exposed to high loads and are heavily used. A transmission failure would lead to the complete stoppage of the ship. The lubrication oil is filtered with Filtration Group duplex filters in combination with Premium Select filter elements. The Premium Select technology ensures a high cleanliness level of the filtration process.

No turning manoeuvre without FG duplex filter

Hydraulically shiftable reversing transmissions enable working vessels such as tugs, fishing cutters or ferries to perform reversing manoeuvres within a narrow radius. In order to avoid fatal drive failures, lubricating oil and hydraulic fluid, among other things, must be reliably cleaned of dirt particles. Duplex filters from Filtration Group filter the lubricating oil to a fineness of 25 μm. Thanks to their duplex design, the elements can also be changed under full load.

Icebreaker

Strong performance in icy temperatures

In order to keep a shipping channel free in the Gulf of Finland between Tallinn and Helsinki in winter, the two icebreakers "URHO" and "SISU" are used alternately for two weeks on a regular basis. A filter and pump system from Filtration Group ensures the permanent availability of clean lubricants and fuel, keeping the operating systems running. The combination of five R5-5 backwash filters and pumps from premium partner Rhea MP meets all the required criteria.
