Oil Water Separators

Oil Water Separator

Featuring an image of one of our oil water separator designs.

We offer a complete line of high efficiency, stainless steel, above ground oil water separators that will remove 99.9% of free and dispersed non-emulsified oil and settleable solids from the waste stream.

Our staff of experienced engineers will provide you with an innovative, efficient, and cost effective solution to your oily waste water issues – just give us a call at 800-453-8639.

Innovative Oil & Water Separation

Oil water separators use parallel corrugated plates to cause the oil droplets in the water to increase in size, thereby speeding the gravity separation process. We enhance this process with our innovated UNIPACK cross-fluted media design with an internal structure of interconnecting channels with multiple crossing points between adjacent plates.

Coalescing of the oil droplets takes place in three steps:

  • Corrugated plates intercept oil droplets as the oil/water mixture flows through the separator.
  • New droplets coalesce with retained droplets, to make larger droplets.
  • Enlarged oil droplets separate from the water and rise to the surface

Water & Oil Separator Technology

The most common approach to the design of oil water separators is to configure parallel corrugated plates that cause the oil droplets to increase in size, thereby speeding the gravity separation process. We use a unique Unipack cross fluted design with an internal structure of interconnecting channels having many crossing points between adjacent plates. This produces enhanced efficiencies in significantly smaller units. Our Unipack construction requires a unit with only 5000 gallons capacity to produce the same yield of a traditional separator unit with 15,000 gallon capacity at a flow rate of 500 gallons per minute.
