After more than three years of research and development, Wave International has introduced its Wavebrite grey water filter system which is suitable for a wide range of boats.
The Wavebrite filter unit processes grey water produced from a boat’s showers, washing machines and basins straight from the source to overboard. Clean water is discharged with no need for grey water holding tanks, ensuring less weight and significantly reducing engine emissions.
Wavebrite features a separate pre filter, intelligent flow manifold and pump which are installed between a boat’s supply drains and the overboard skin fitting. It removes all grey water pollution such as soap, shampoo, toothpaste, shaving cream, laundry detergents, hair, lint, body oils, dirt, grease, fats and chemicals.
Wavebrite uses multimedia filters to remove all the components and to clean the water to strict EU bathing standards.
Paul Gullett, managing director of Wave International, said: “Although development was difficult many boat builders, marine professionals and boat owners have been asking for a solution and we are now proud to introduce a system that removes grey water contamination allowing immediate overboard discharge.”
