In comparison with the current traditional filters the new filter has following advantages:

1. Reducing the number of particles that can damage the tank cleaning machines (on board the vessels). Reducing sediments inside the cargo tanks. On shore side can be implemented to process waste water and sewage water to minimised particles and segregate achieved mud. Filter can be inserted as part of sanitising pre-filtering system to minimise damages on the central unit.

2. Cost savings through reduced maintenance and repairs, with periodical inspections.

3. The self-cleaning properties ensure no formation of sediments inside the filter.

4. No interruptions to the cleaning process because of blocked filters.

5. No loss of time

6. Improves the efficiency of the COW washing process.

7. Improved cleaning results leading to much reduced amounts of sediments (ROB) inside
cargo tanks.

8. Increased economical benefits owing to reduced amounts of sediments in cargo tanks
(ROB) provide more volume for paid cargo.

9. Fuel savings and CO2 reduction

10. Low investment costs because the newly designed filter inlet can be used in existing
filter casings.
