Oil Water Separators
Air compressors, produce considerable amounts of oil-contaminated condensate. This contamination must not be discharged directly into open drains, public sewers or natural watercourses. As a result, most countries now have environmental laws placing strict limits on the discharge of industrial effluent containing oil.
The low cost, effective solution is an oil/water separator from General Air Products. Installed as part of the compressed air system, it simply reduces the oil concentration in the condensate to permitted levels, so that clean water condensate can discharge safely into the drains. This leaves a relatively small amount of concentrated waste trapped in an encased cartridge to be disposed of by the most economic of legitimate means.
Features & Benefits
Low Cost, Low Maintenance Oil Water Separators
The oily condensate enters the separator under pressure. Here, the excess pressure is eliminated and pre-treatment begins. The multi-stage cartridge removes particulates & oils through unique adsorption materials with no activated carbon. Clean water is carried to the outlet with effluent well under legal limits for oil carry over. A sampling port is provided near the discharge for "spot checking" filter performance at any time.
