Oily water separators

An Oily Water Separator provides an important function to safe guard our environment, and are present in most industrial wash down areas. We are able to maintain & clean your commercial fuel & oil separator tanks to ensure they work as effectively as they can. This allows for more precise, non-destructive excavation, and is particularly effective if you are trying to locate underground utilities.

An oily water separator separates the oil/fat and the water based on the density difference – the oil/fat droplets being lighter than the water. To do this the oily wastewater is pumped tangentially into the separator which forms a powerful vortex and huge centrifugal forces. This squeezes the lighter oil/fat droplets into the center of the vortex. Two streams are generated: treated water ready for discharge or reuse, and the separated oil for storage and disposal.
