below-ground-oil-water-separator-design.jpg

Our single wall or double wall below ground parallel, corrugated plate oil/water separators meet and exceed API 421 requirements, removing essentially 100% of dispersed non-emulsified oil droplets in the waste stream.

These separators are special purpose prefabricated parallel corrugated plate, cylindrical, gravity displacement oil water separators, containing an inlet compartment, sludge chamber, separation chamber, oil storage area and clean water compartment.

As shown below, the separation process if fairly simple. Wastewater flows into the inlet compartment. A baffle interrupts the flow and allows solids to drop out. Next the oil water moves into the separation chamber where our innovative media causes small oil droplets entrained in the water to coalesce into larger ones which then separate from the water and float to the surface. The clean water then travels into the clean water compartment through the outlet to the sewer.

Features

  • Patented, revolutionary, non- plugging coalescing plates which remove free oil droplets as small as 20 microns
  • Single wall or double wall construction with interstitial space for leak detection
  • Rectangular access manhole with 3’ extension to service and maintain coalescing media

  • Range of porosities available
  • Cost effective
  • Easy to install and move
  • Impervious to non-petroleum

System Components

Geo Bags – Placed in the sump or securely fastened to the end of a discharge pipe or hose, the bag slows down the flow of the incoming water, allowing the suspended solids to remain in the bag. Over time, the bag releases the water. Once the sediment-laden bag is de-watered, it can be picked up by a front-end loader and easily disposed of according to local enforcement agency regulations.  The fabric is comprised of a heavy non-woven fabric and double chain stitched for extra security.  Non-woven geo-textiles are approved by many local, state and federal agencies, including the Federal Highway Administration, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the Environmental Protection Agency and AASHTO.


Pump & Control System – We use heavy-duty, solids handling, air driven pumps that can be fully or partially submerged. These pumps handle debris ranging from stringy to abrasive up to 2” diameter including slurries. The pump and control systems come with a variety of valves, seats, and control panel options that will be engineered to your particular application.

Sump System – The sump is an integral part of the solids handling and separation system. They can be built in stainless steel, aluminum or concrete, with multiple compartments, weirs or screens. Sump sizes are engineered for the washing application and water treatment system.  Depending on the application and location, they can be placed above ground or buried.

Designed to remove extensive contamination, our heavy-duty, multi-stage, discharge treatment systems treat wash water so it can be safely discharged to the sewer or, in many cases, the surroundings.

Stage 1 – Solids Settling 

Multi-Media Sewer Discharge Water Treatment

Almost all commercial washing operations produce some solids so the first stage of our filtration process is the solids handling system. We help you develop site-specific solutions to eliminate as many solids as possible before running the water through to the next stage of filtration. Solutions include custom-designed sumps, basins, trenches or screening systems.

Stage 2 – Oils & Solids Separation 

After the coarse solids settling, the water is processed through either a multi-compartment stainless steel oil water separator or a stainless steel clarifier oil-water separator, which separates out smaller suspended solids, oil and water. In the first compartment of the clarifier oil water separator, free oils float to the surface.  In the second section, the stainless steel clarifying plates remove coarse amounts of oil from the waste stream and remove as much Total Suspended Solids (TSS) as possible.  The angles of the non-clogging plates are 55° which will allow any solids to slide down the plates into the solids hopper, where they can easily be pumped out.   Finally, the coalescing media removes essentially 100% of all free and dispersed non-emulsified oils so the FOG effluent concentration can be as low as 5 ppm.

Stage 3 – Water Filtration & Polishing

After the clarifier oil-water separator, the water is pumped though a multi-media (sand, gravel, anthracite) filter and then safely discharged to the sewer or surroundings. Processed water passing through the system will be free of substantially all emulsified oils, waxes and other volatile organic compounds with only limited soaps and detergents remaining in the treated water. If needed, a blended activated carbon or a carbon/clay mixture tailored to a particular waste stream can be added as an optional polishing filter.

Robustly designed and manufactured for commercial and industrial washing applications, our heavy-duty, multi-stage, closed loop treatment systems treats the wash water so it can be used continuously without any discharge to the sewer or surroundings.

Stage 1 – Solids Settling

Wash Water Treatment System For Commercial Trucking Industry
Many companies choose to haul this water away, but a more efficient way of removing this cost is by recycling and reusing the water.

Many commercial washing operations produce a generous amount of solids so the first stage of our filtration process is the solids handling system. We help you develop site-specific solutions to eliminate as many solids as possible before running the water through to the next stage of filtration. Solutions include custom-designed sumps, basins, trenches or screening systems.

Stage 2 – Oils & Solids Separation 

Truck Wash Water Treatment System
Our Commercial Truck Wash Systems are heavy-duty, multi-stage reclaim and discharge systems, engineered and manufactured for the trucking and transportation industries.

After the coarse solids settling, the water is processed through a multi-compartment stainless steel clarifier oil-water separator, which separates out smaller suspended solids, oil and water. In the first compartment, free oils float to the surface.  In the second section, the stainless steel clarifying plates remove coarse amounts of oil and as much Total Suspended Solids (TSS) as possible.  The angles of the non-clogging plates are 55° which allows solids to slide down the plates into the solids hopper, where they can easily be pumped out.   Next, the water goes through our coalescing media which removes essentially 100% of all free and dispersed non-emulsified oils so the FOG effluent concentration can be as low as 5 ppm.

Stage 3 – Water Filtration, Odor Reduction & Polishing

After the clarifier oil-water separator, the water is pumped though several filtration steps including multi-media (sand, gravel, anthracite), blended activated carbon, polishing filter, and corona discharge ozone. These filters reduce odors and any contaminants to fewer than 10 microns in size, including emulsified oils, waxes, and other volatile organic compounds. The amount of media, carbon, ozone and water storage volume are typically customized to meet your particular application.
