FORT WASHINGTON, Pa. - The new OMNIPURE(TM) Series 55 marine sanitation system introduced by Severn Trent De Nora in March 2009 has received Bureau Veritas Process Type Approval for IMO Resolution MEPC.159(55). The OMNIPURE Series 55 system has been specifically designed, manufactured and tested to comply with MEPC.159(55) effluent standards and performance tests for sewage treatment plants across a variety of offshore and marine installations. The MEPC.159(55) effluent standards, adopted by the International Maritime Organization's Marine Environment Protection Committee, apply to all sewage treatment systems installed on board on or after January 1, 2010.

Like other OMNIPURE products, the Series 55 systems produce a sodium hypochlorite disinfection solution from seawater in the presence of sewage to effectively treat all sewage. The OMNIPURE Series 55 systems can accommodate treatment capacities up to 598 persons for black water and up to 197 persons for black and gray water. The OMNIPURE Series 55 systems range in capacity up to 65 m3/day (17,000 gal/day) as individual units that can also be combined for increased capacity. The systems provide effective electrolytic treatment of both black and gray water through a patented and certified treatment process.
