Coalescing Media

In some applications, a higher efficiency media is required for environmental concerns. This media uses its high surface to volume ratio to provide extremely efficient oil/ water/ solids separation.

This media is constructed of oleophilic coalescing plates arranged in a cross-fluted configura­tion that provides between 31–69 square feet of oil coalesc­ing surface and 7–17 square feet of solids settling area per cubic foot of media. Each plate has a series of angled ribs, which are sloped from the bottom of the separa­tion chamber to the top at a 60° angle establishing a com­pound inclined surface.

  • Available in stainless steel, PVC, HPVC, polypropylene and stainless steel
  • Vertical slant rib plate spacing of ½”, ¾” or 1 ¼” with slant ribs alternating direction by 90°
  • Supplied in 1’ cubes with optional stainless steel frames for easy installation and removal

The separator and media design maintains a sinusoidal laminar flow throughout the media so the maximum amount of oil separation is achieved. Coalesced oil can flow unimpeded along the plate surfaces to the top of the separator where it is easily removed.

Our standard media has vastly superior properties compared to the traditional media used in oil-water separators. These properties result in a more efficient and effective separation than that attained by traditional coalescing media.

  • A larger amount of surface area per cubic foot of media allows for greater oil drop coalescence. This media has 132 ft2/ft3 surface area for oil droplets to contact. Other typical coalescing media have about 48 ft2/ft3 to 68 ft2/ft3.
  • A more efficient first step separation reduces the need for a second polishing step. Our media removes 99.9% of oil droplets 20 microns in size and larger. This meets EPA Method 1664 Revision A and European Standard EN 858-1.
  • An open design eliminates trapping of particles and subsequent clogging of water channels. Oil water separators with this media require fewer maintenance shut-downs and separates oil and water faster.
  • Where higher-than-normal operating temperatures are required, our media outperforms its competitors. It works effectively in temperatures up to 212°F, versus a maximum temperature of about 120°F for competing media.
