An Oil/Water Separator is a device for separating and removing oil from water. Enhanced Gravity Separation is an economical method that utilizes coalescing plate technology that accelerates the process which oil and water do naturally, separate. The process occurs without any moving parts and is based on principles consistent with gravity and buoyancy.
The oil/water separator contains an oleophilic (oil-loving) media through which the contaminated water flows. The oil in the water coalesces on the coalescing media forming progressively larger oil droplets. The droplets then float off the media and accumulate at the surface level of the separator. Oil accumulating at the separator is safely detained until removal and properly disposed of.
ParkProcess separation equipment ranges from those that separate coarse solids from fluids as in our vibratory screening units, to sand and silt removal devices such as our hydrocyclones, to colloidal solids removal using our inclined plate clarifiers and centrifuges. Applications for our separation equipment include waste water treatment systems, where unwanted solids are removed enabling the waste stream to be sent to a sewer, removing unwanted solids in systems where the water is being recycled. Removing solids from surface water prior to entering a water treatment plant, and removing sand, silt and fine solids from drilling mud. Solids/Liquids separation equipment also is a necessary item in some chemical processes, manufacturing plants, mining operations, paper mills, power plants, and a myriad of other industries.
