Marine Water Evaporator
With the ever-tightening environmental regulations and strict EPA enforcement of the Clean Water Act, SkimOil Inc. has introduced MarineVAP™, the new onboard system for evaporating marine waste waters, including gray water, oil bilge water—even treated black water.
Effective in 2009, all vessels at least 79 feet long are mandated to have NPDES permits for managing all waste waters generated on board.
With more “no discharge zones” being designated throughout the inland and coastal waters, the pressure is on boat operators to better manage marine wastewaters.
Vessel General Permit (VGP)
For Vessel General Permit (VGP) compliance, why not simply evaporate your gray water and even the treated black waters coming off your MSD? Turn your boat into a NO DISCHARGE ZONE. One way or another, there are more and more NO DISCHARGE ZONES coming your way. How to handle it? What if you evaporated all your water away?
SkimOil’s zero liquid discharge MarineVAP™ system is a completely marinized, simple device and the logical successor to the SkimOil BilgeVAP that has been successfully used for years to eliminate oily bilge water. Our technology is mature and has been well proven, and now the materials and controls are even better.
No discharge is a safe discharge!
Unlike storage tanks that take up a lot of room or treatment systems that can be complicated and require constant operator involvement while still relying on pumping the water off for costly third-party disposal.
The electric-powered MarineVAP™, with no emissions, is the “final solution” to managing bilge and gray waters. MarineVAP™ safely and automatically turns waste water to vapor and evaporates it away. Gray water is often the largest waste stream on board modern workboats. MarineVAP™ eliminates the problem.
MarineVAP™ is a safe, closed/sealed unit with a small footprint and external insulated heat coils encircling a smaller heat transfer chamber. Designed with an automatic control system for automated startup, shutdown and operation, the completely self-contained MarineVAP™ system incorporates a pump for metering water into the unit on demand, to keep up with the amount of water evaporated. This process is far more efficient than heating a large tank of water and allows for rapid heating adequate to evaporate waste streams safely and quickly. The proprietary control system includes level controls and automatic shutdown for low level or high temperatures and status monitoring.
MarineVAP™ MV8 #101 evaporates 8 gallons of waste water per hour. Larger sizes are available, as is the SkimOil ShoreVAP, which uses LPG or waste oil to fire the evaporator.

Bilge water, gray water, treated black water! GONE!
Bilge Water, Gray Water, Treated Black Water
Skimoil’s® BilgeVAP is a partial answer to the marine waste water management requirements presented by the new EPA enforcement of the Clean Water Act. The BilgeVAP by Skimoil® evaporates away the water portion of oily bilge water, gray water and even treated black water coming off of Marine Sanitation Devices (MSD) allowing workboats, barges and even shore facilities to become no discharge zones.
With this simple, rugged device, all the water or slops are automatically heated to boiling and turned into vapor that is then vented to atmosphere through a blower-assisted stack. Venting is easy. Water vapor is not considered a pollutant. Electric heating gives you no emissions!
