Ship's Waste Incinerator

This installation is Glosfume's first filter to be used at sea. Stringent laws prevent ships from dumping waste at sea, all waste has to be returned to its point of origin. The Royal Navy is one of the first to install an incinerator and filter onboard a ship. Extensive testing was carried out before fitting the unit to HMS Ocean; installation involved cutting a large hole in the ship's side. The unit is fully WID compliant and passed by Lloyd's.
