RE-FURBISHED EQUIPMENT – For Sale or Lease

SPT-50 Clarifier Oil Water Separator System
The SPT-50 was designed for use in heavy industrial washing operations as a pre-treatment system to remove free oils, grease and high TSS from the waste stream.

SPT-50 Clarifier Oil Water Separator System – The SPT-50 was designed for use in heavy industrial washing operations as a pre-treatment system to remove free oils, grease and high TSS from the waste stream. It is a two-part system designed to be simple to operate but very effective in its ability to remove oil and solids from the waste stream. The first clarifier section will trap and remove coarse amounts of oil from the waste stream and remove as much Total Suspended Solids (TSS) as possible. The plates will also capture larger bubbles of oil and liberate them from the waste stream before they get to the secondary oil water separator section. In that section, coalescing media will remove essentially all free and dispersed non-emulsified oils to an effluent concentration of less than 5 ppm. The entire system can be easily cleaned and maintained.

Standard Features:

  • 1-50 GPM Capacity
  • Stainless Steel Construction
  • Advanced coalescing media designed to remove oil droplets greater than 20 microns
  • Projected plate inclined plates to direct the flow to the surface
  • Sludge hopper to capture and contain settleable solids.

Oil Water Separator
The system removes the floating oils from the top of the water surface and directs the water continuously into the oil water separator.

“Our washing operation used to dump 3,000 to 5,000 gallons of process water down the sewer each day because it was contaminated with petroleum oil and wax. Not only did we lose this water in the middle of the worst drought in history but the heat energy it contained as well. We also risked plugging up the city sewer system.

With the help of Wash Bay Solutions, we designed a system using a floating oil skimmer on a hose, a non-emulsifying air pump, and a coalescing stainless steel oil water separator.

The system removes the floating oils from the top of the water surface and directs the water continuously into the oil water separator. The unit produces water so clean that we can use it in our boilers and cooling towers. Zero water is now sent down the sewer.”

Water Management Consulting
Water Management Consulting: We gather as much data as possible and then use our decades of experience to develop a comprehensive plan for your entire facility.

In many industrial, mining, and oil and gas operations, multiple processes involving water and fluids can be occurring at a single location at any one time. Often, these complicated processes may seem unrelated but they can affect one another and cause poor water quality, unforeseen chemical reactions, and costly equipment failures.

Our approach is a little different in that it is very “data-driven”. We gather as much data as possible and then use our decades of experience to develop a comprehensive plan for your entire facility.

Surveys: As a first step, we perform a comprehensive survey to identify all potential sources of water and fluids entering and leaving the facility. These survey results can be very interesting. They can reveal previously unknown volumes of water and chemicals coming into the system intermingling and creating different reactions and issues.

Data Gathering & Documentation: After the initial survey, we gather as much water quality, flow, pressure, and chemical data as possible with a wide array of measurement and control systems including:

  • Flow meters and pressure sensors
  • pH control systems
  • COD/BOD analyzers
  • Water quality tests
  • Level controllers

We also provide checklists and spreadsheets with automatic graphing capability that can show system changes and allow for further system analysis and process improvement.

System Analysis  & Process Modifications:  By analyzing this data, we are able to recommend various process and chemical changes which will maximize your system operations and reduce costs. Adding measurement devices and control systems will help onsite personnel quickly react to any changes in the system and effectively address issues before they become costly problems.

Developing a comprehensive water management system can have many advantages and be a smart move for your company.  Give us a call at 800-453-8639 for more information.

Floating Oil Skimmer
Floating Oil Skimmer

Floating Oil Skimmers

Our triple-float oil skimmers are designed to free float on the water and remove non-emulsified oils from the surface. Constructed of stainless steel, they can be designed to be rigid or hinged to fit into small manhole openings in wastewater storage tanks.

Wall-Mounted Oil Skimmers

Our dual-float, wall-mounted oil skimmers are designed to remove non-emulsified oils from the surface of the water. Skimmers are constructed from stainless steel for corrosion resistance and sturdy enough for any application. The wall-mounted slide pipe allows the skimmer to float vertically but be kept close to the wall so it can be accessed easily. It can be built to accommodate any size sump.

Depending on the application, both skimmers can be custom-built for size and flow rate.

California Drought and Watewater Recycling Solutions
Aerial view showing low water level in South Lake reservoir in California because of drought.

California is now entering its fourth year of drought. State and local authorities have asked residents to voluntarily reduce water use by 20%. Various water managers estimate that available water will last for a year or at the most three.

While at present the authorities have asked for a voluntary reduction in water use, this is likely to be followed soon by price rationing where households that consume more than 150 gallons of water a day will be charged a higher rate. Apart from residents, industries and businesses too have to work to reduce water usage to help overcome the drought and reduce their water bills or keep them under manageable levels.

Recycling Waste Water

One of the most effective ways of reducing water consumption is by recycling waste water. This helps reduce effluent discharge and ensures that the same water is reused. Many industries such as trucking, fork lift operators, rail operators, car wash units, and others use water for washing the vehicles. This is part of maintenance and ensures a professional image, happy and health drivers, and clean transportation facilities. However, the amount of water used can be high. By recycling the waste water, the businesses can reduce their water consumption and their water bills.

CT Series Wash Water Systems

Commercial trucking companies can install the CT Series wash water systems to recycle and reuse the waste water. The system removes settle-able solids and non-emulsified oil droplets before filtering the water to make it reusable. The multi-stage reclaim and discharge process begins with a solid removal process. This system can be designed to be “site specific” – taking into account the specific features of the site.

A stainless steel oil and water separation system is used to remove non emulsified oil drops from the water as well as settle-able solids. Once this is done, the water is passed through a highly efficient water filtration process that uses corona and activated carbon to purify the water. This removes all contaminants that are larger than 10 microns in size including volatile organic compounds, waxes, and oils.

RL Series Treatment Systems

Another efficient method of transportation is by rail. A rail company that wants to reduce its water usage and still keep its carriages clean can do so by installing the RL Series Treatment Systems. These systems have been developed especially for the railways. They can be combined with existing rail wash systems to ensure that the water use is significantly reduced.

First, the wash water is passed through a stainless steel clarifier oil water separator that removes settle-able solids, and separates the oil and water. All suspended solids are removed at this stage as well as free and dispersed non emulsified oil. Next, the water is passed through a solids filtration system that uses blended activated carbon. This process will remove waxes, volatile organic compounds, and all particles greater than 10 microns in size, ensuring water that can be reused for washing the railway carriages.

Debris Baskets
Stainless Steel Debris Baskets

Our Wash Bay Solutions Stainless Debris Baskets are designed to both protect the equipment and help control costs associated with solids removal from wash bay sumps. The baskets are for washing applications with an average amount of solids. The baskets fit snugly into the sump and catch all solids from the wash bay before they reach the recycle systems. When the basket is full, personnel remove it and set it to the side to dewater. A second basket can then be placed into the sump and washing can continue. Once the sediment in the first debris basket is de-watered, it can be easily disposed of according to local enforcement agency regulations.

Applications:

  • Heavy Equipment Washing
  • Aircraft Maintenance
  • Truck & Bus Washing
  • Forklift Wash Facilities
  • Military Bases

Benefits:

  • Low Maintenance
  • Heavy Duty Construction
  • Impervious to Non-petroleum Materials
  • Easy to Install

The baskets are constructed of stainless steel plates and stainless mesh. They come in standard sizes or custom sizes to fit into an existing sump. One or two handles on each basket make them easy to move around.

Water Treatment Solutions for Trains and Locomotives
Water Treatment Solutions for Trains and Locomotives

Rail is by far one of the most efficient means of transportation. It is estimated that one train can move a ton of freight almost 500 miles on a single gallon of fuel.  Today, Rail Companies are aggressively embracing environmental initiatives by investing in new technologies that further reduce their carbon footprint, energy use, and water consumption.

We can help rail companies keep the trains clean and in good working order AND help them reach their environmental goals.  Engineered and manufactured for the locomotive industry, our Rail & Locomotive (RL Series) Systems are heavy-duty, multi-stage wash water reclaim systems which can be combined with our single or multi-stage wash and rinse arches for a complete wash system that uses a fraction of the water of other wash systems on the market.

In the first stage our RL Systems, the water is processed through a stainless steel clarifier oil water separator which removes most suspended solids (TSS), essentially all settleable solids and all free and dispersed non-emulsified oils from the waste stream.

After the clarifier separator, the water is further processed for re-use by going through an extremely efficient filtration process utilizing fully automated solids filtration and a proprietary blended activated carbon (GAC) polishing filtration. Processed water passing through the system will be free of particles greater than 10 microns in size, substantially all emulsified oils, waxes and other volatile organic compounds.

Closed Loop Reclaim System for Oil and Gas Industry Equipment
To reduce both hauling costs and water usage, many oil field services companies have installed our Drilling Equipment (DE Series) Systems to treat and recycle their wastewater.

Oil and gas drilling, including hydraulic fracking, is a complicated endeavor. The nature of the work ensures that dirt, downhole acids, crude residues, waxes, and grease coat down-hole motors, pumps, subs, drill pipe, tanks, and vehicles.  Constant washing and NDT testing is essential to maintaining the equipment in good working order.  These processes, however, produce an enormous amount of water. Often, the wastewater is stored onsite and disposed of every few weeks – which can get very expensive.

To reduce both hauling costs and water usage, many oil field services companies have installed our Drilling Equipment (DE Series) Systems to treat and recycle their wastewater. Robustly designed and manufactured for the oil and gas industry, our heavy-duty, multi-stage treatment systems clean up the water for re-use or discharge.  By simplifying the water handling, many clients are able to both increase production and reduce costs, resulting in pay back periods of only months!

The important first stage is the solids handling system. Depending on the amount of solids and the wash pad design, our engineers will develop a site-specific system to remove as many solids as possible before the water goes to the filtration systems.

The next stage of the system is the stainless steel clarifier oil water separator which removes most suspended solids (TSS), essentially all settleable solids and all free and dispersed non-emulsified oils from the waste stream.

Depending on the application, the next stage could be biological treatment. Our proprietary biological filter system uses a revolutionary, patented US technology, including specifically developed microbes combined with a highly efficient aeration technology, to treat the water and remove substantially all of the COD and FOG in the water.

In the final polishing stage, the water goes through an extremely efficient filtration process utilizing fully automated solids filtration and a proprietary blended activated carbon (GAC) polishing filtration, and a corona discharge ozone generator to prevent odors. Processed water passing through the system will be free of particles greater than 10 microns in size, substantially all emulsified oils, waxes and other volatile organic compounds.

Water Treatment Solutions for Fork Lift Cleaning

Industrial forklifts are used in a variety of places including construction sites, shipyards, mines and drilling sites.  They are invaluable in that they can unload pallets of materials, steel girders and pipes and other products from the delivery trucks and carry them to parts of the work sites that are not accessible to other vehicles.  Larger, heavy-duty forklifts can also transport large containers from delivery trucks to dockside storage areas, and then to the ships. Due to the working conditions and locations, forklifts will often get extremely dirty. After washing, the wash water generated will be full of grease and oil.

Fork Lift Water Treatment System
Our Fork Lift (FL Series) Water Treatment Systems are heavy-duty, multi-stage reclaim and discharge systems.

Our Fork Lift (FL Series) Water Treatment Systems are heavy-duty, multi-stage reclaim and discharge systems.  Depending on the usage, a certain amount of solids will be generated by the washing process.

4-Vessel Filter System
4-Vessel MINING & CONSTRUCTION (MC Series) TREATMENT SYSTEMS

As the demand for minerals and precious metals grows, mining companies are constantly working to keep up with demand and improve their mining methods while at the same time doing as much as they can to preserve the environment.  Most mining and heavy construction work is predominantly done by heavy equipment such as LHD loaders, backhoes, excavators and dump trucks. This equipment gets coated with solids, dirt and grime on a daily basis.

Daily washing is an important part of maintaining the equipment in good working order.  This washing, however, produces a lot of dirty water and solids. The most efficient way to reduce your water usage and hauling costs is to remove the solids and recycle the water.

Our Mining & Construction Equipment (MC Series) Systems are heavy-duty, multi-stage reclaim and discharge systems, engineered and manufactured for the mining and heavy construction industries.

Because of the enormous amount of solids generated by the washing process, the most critical first stage for these systems is the solids handling system. Depending on the wash pad design, our engineers will develop a site-specific system including sumps, trenches, screens and skimmers to remove as many solids as possible before the water goes to the subsequent filtration systems.

After many of the heavy solids are removed in the first stage, the water will then be processed through a stainless steel clarifier oil water separator which removes most suspended solids (TSS), essentially all settleable solids and all free and dispersed non-emulsified oils from the waste stream.

After the clarifier separator, the water can either be discharged or further processed for re-use.  If the water needs to be re-used, the water then goes through an extremely efficient filtration process utilizing fully automated solids filtration and a proprietary blended activated carbon (GAC) polishing filtration, and a corona discharge ozone generator to prevent odors.
