New Gear:

September / October 2017



    Even the cleanest bilges have the potential to contain bits of pollutants which can harm the environment when a bilge pump kicks on. Centek Industries BilgeKleen filter system filters bilge water discharge and automatically removes oil, gas, diesel fuel and other hydrocarbon pollutants from bilge water before it is discharged overboard. The patented system uses a filtering medium that binds to hydrocarbons and allows water to pass through freely. As a result, over 99.9% of the hydrocarbon pollutants are captured, with no increase in pressure to the bilge pump. The system installs easily to the bilge pump discharge line and includes an absorbent pad for the bilge sump area to capture harmful contaminants where they form. A variety of BilgeKleen system sizes are available from Centek's worldwide dealer network to fit almost any bilge space or application, from runabouts to megayachts and commercial vessels.
