OilKiller is a catamaran work-boat
for the cleaning and maintenance of water surfaces;
to collect and store floating plastics and garbages;
to collect biological and chemical data about water healthiness;
to filter and collect microparticles in order to laboratory analysis;
to oxygenate the water surface and encourage its revitalization.
cleaning and maintenance from oil films
This function is obtained by using the TJP patented device FLOC.
FLOC is a flexible collector to intercept the water surface and to drive the flow to the stern where, dissected by a second smaller FLOC, is forced to pass throgh the the second TJP patented device: Filter-Box. In the Filter-Box is guested a plurality of oleophilic elements that capture the oily spots by the contact.
The water mass that didn't pass through the Filter-Box is immediately left and the cleaned water as well from the Filter-Box.
collect and store floating plastics and garbage
This function is obtained by installing the Sieve-Box in place of the Filter-Box.
The size of the sieving nets defines the minimum size of the floating objects to retain. No water amount is collected.
collect biological and chemical data about water healthiness
This function is obtained by installing a control unit for chemical and biological analysis of the water.
The control unit can be configured with different sensors in order to the needed data.
A cloud digital store and the related software make the database storable and editable.
sampling and storage of microparticles
This function is obtained by installing a sampling net for plankton and microplastics between the catamaran hulls. The reachable sink is about one meter.
The size of the microporosity defines the minimum size of the objects to retain. No water amount is collected.
oxygenate the water surface
This function is obtained by installing a system that provides the spraying of oxygenated gas from a plurality of nozzles distributed on a wide support.
