OIL SEPARATORS WITH COALESCING FILTER
1.SEPARATION AREA: stilling area in which floating substances such as oil. grease and any foam are separated from the effluent and accumulate on the surface, while the heavy substances (stones. grit, pièces of rubber and métal,...) settle on the bottom of the tank.
2.OIL ACCUMULATION AREA: the oils separated from the effluent accumulate on the surface.
3.HEAVY SEDIMENT ACCUMULATION AREA: the heavy materials separated from the effluent accumulate on the bottom of the tank.
4.COALESCING FILTER: fine micro-bubble polyuréthane filter inserted into a stainless Steel grid. which can be extracted thanks to the presence of a base and guides, also made of stainless Steel. The coalescing filter is able to join the fine particles of oil présent in the effluent into larger drops that are large enough to migrate towards the surface, separating from the effluent.
TECHNICAL CHARACTERISTICS: Oil separators with coalescing filters allow improved performance to be obtained in removing light substances. The System makes use of a polyuréthane sponge support on which the oil and hydrocarbon particles collect until their dimensions are such that enable them to settle away from the effluent by gravity. This treatment is recommended in the presence of particularly severe limitations on the discharged concentrations of minerai oils and hydrocarbons. It is advisable to install a grit separator upstream of the oil separator in order to prevent solid particles from clogging the filter meshes.
