OIL WATER SEPARATORS (OWS)

Separation efficiency for the most stringent discharge requirements

SEPARATION EFFICIENCY

The OWS is modular, engineered oil/water separator that can easily be integrated with other equipment to meet the industrial user’s needs. 

The treatment system’s single stainless steel tank assembly saves valuable floor space and time during installation. Designed to continuously skim the water’s surface to remove even the faintest trace of oil. Once intercepted, the oil is then transferred to a containment compartment where it can be removed easily. A sludge draw-off valve is located on the back of the unit where collected solids can be discharged. 

The OWS is the perfect solution for very low (PPM) discharge level situations required for industrial plants, commercial garages, and cleaning applications. The OWS 500 is capable of delivering discharges under 10 PPM.

NO PACKS TO CLOG

One of the best features of the OWS 500 is what it doesn’t have – coalescing packs. 

While coalescing packs can be useful is certain situations, they can also clog quickly with suspended oil and grease, and require frequent maintenance. Without regular cleaning and maintenance, clogged, coalescing packs can lead to discharge violations and overflows resulting in environmental spills. 

OWS AT A GLANCE

  • Simple, above-ground installation
  • No coalescing packs to clog, leading to violations
  • No filters, chemicals, or moving parts – simple design
  • Continuous skim assures of client separation
  • Easy modification allows wash water to be recycled
  • Simple, minimal maintenance

For industrial plants, commercial garages, and cleaning applications.
