NES KBO Oil Recovery and Separation System getting
the good oil back and minimising waste
Since its inception nearly ten years ago, the KBO ST150 has undergone many changes and additions.
Today’s version represents years of experience and customer feedback
which has resulted in certainly the most safe, sophisticated and best
performing ST150 ever produced
The importance of using efficient methods of sludge
Negative Environmental and Safety consequences of
using traditional methods include land wastage and possible
contamination of the water table. Also of concern is wastage of
large quantities of potentially usable product.
significant consideration is the proliferation of legislation
designed to protect both the environment and populations whose
Health & Safety concerns need to be addressed.
The NESL KBO Crude Oil Sludge Treatment System
addresses all of these issues using the most efficient and
cost-effective technology available at the present time.

The ST150 can be used as a stand alone unit to
process oily sludges and sediments from pits and lagoons or
can be used alongside the range of NESL Tank
Cleaning Systems such as Tanksweeps, Manway Cannons, ROVs
KBOil waste oil sludge treatment system has been specially designed for
on site processing of a wide range of heavy waste oil sludge materials.
Designed and manufactured as a completely integrated system it provides
cost effective treatment of
crude sludge by reclaiming good quality, reusable oil from the waste
Depending on the application, the heavy duty portable system is supplied
complete with a purpose built, heavy duty two phase centrifuge,
hydraulic power pack and all controls for safe operation in potentially
NESL KBO two phase centrifuge( has a number of unique design features
and offers the most cost effective method of waste oil sludge treatment.
The specifications of the recovered oil and remaining residue after
processing are acceptable to refineries for reuse and local authorities
for land fill
Also available as a 3 Phase System
