Automobile Leak Testing System

For clients who have to leak test vehicles to ensure that there has been no water intrusion after manufacturing or modifications, we have developed a complete leak testing system. Custom engineered to fit your facility and testing protocols, our water intrusion / leak testing systems consist of containment pads, test arches, a water supply system and a fully automated filtration system designed to remove contaminants from the test water so that it can be re-used for a period of time prior to disposal or discharge to the sewer. Designed for commercial and industrial applications, all features of the system are manufactured to insure superior performance and minimal operating requirements.

The containment system consists of a water containment pad constructed of steel or heavy-duty PVC.

Sized to fit your facility and test vehicle, these pads feature entrance and exit ramps and drive over and/or pedestrian grating, if desired. Custom-sized water-proof canvas canopies, PVC curtains or Fiberglass walls are installed on the pad to minimize overspray.

The leak test system is built to fit into the containment system so there is no overflow. Depending on the client’s needs, the leak test system will include multiple side and overhead spray arches, vertical spray posts, and undercarriage spray bars, positioned to provide optimal coverage.  The spray test will last for a client-specified period of time and can be easily controlled by a driver with a remote start/stop key fob.

During the water intrusion / leak test, water is automatically pumped from the containment pad through an initial filter to remove any minor solids and contamination. From there, water is pumped into manifolded water management tanks.  The tanks provide enough water storage to permit proper water balancing during the testing period and the water recovery time. The tank system is equipped with level switches to protect the pumps and to automatically provide for fresh water make-up due to evaporation or drive-off losses. From these tanks, water is pumped back to the test arches, when needed.

In most leak test applications, the contaminants are minimal so this pumping and filtration cycle can last a considerable amount of time. When the water becomes too contaminated to re-use, however, the water can be pumped out or processed through additional filtration and discharged to the sewer.

5 Stages Of Oil Water Separation Diagram

5 Stages of Oil Water Separation Diagram

  1. The free oil (150 micron in size or greater) is separated in the inlet quiescent zone.
  2. The settleable solids will flow downward into the hopper section for removal.
  3. The suspended solids and dispersed oil will flow upward through the inclined plates
    section, where most of the suspended solids will slide down the plates into the hopper.
  4. The remaining suspended solids and dispersed oil will flow into the separation
    compartment where the coalescing plates will separate the oil 30 micron or greater to
    the surface for removal .
  5. The flow of water will go over the overflow weir plate into the clean water compartment
    and then discharge to the sewer.

INLET COMPARTMENT & INCLINED PLATES:  The inlet chamber shall be comprised of a non-clog diffuser to distribute the flow across the width of the chamber. The inlet compartment shall be of sufficient volume to effectively reduce influent suspended solids, dissipate energy and begin separation. The inclined plates will sit elevated on top of a sludge chamber. As the water moves upwards the suspended particles have their upwards velocity interrupted by the inclined plates. These particles drop down and slide down the inclined plate and join larger previously settled particles in sludge hopper. The sludge compartment will be provided to retain settleable solids.

SEPARATION CHAMBER:  The oil separation chamber shall contain HD Q-PAC Coalescing Media containing a minimum of 132 square feet per cubic foot of effective coalescing surface area. The medias needle like elements (plates) shall be at 90 degrees to the horizontal or longitudinal axis of the separator. Spacing between these elements shall be spaced 3/16” apart for the removal of a minimum of 99.9% of free droplets 20 micron in size or greater. The elements are positioned to create an angle of repose of 90 degrees to facilitate the removal of solids that may tend to build up on the coalescing surfaces, which would increase velocities to the point of discharging an unacceptable effluent.

Laminar flow with a Reynolds Number of less than 500 at a maximum designed flow rate shall be maintained throughout the separator packed bed including entrance and exit so as to prevent re-entrainment of oils with water. Flow through the polypropylene coalescing media shall be crossflow perpendicular to the vertical media elements such that all 132 square feet/cubic foot of coalescing media is available for contact with the coalescing surfaces.

None of the coalescing media surfaces shall be pointing upward so as not to be available for contact with the cross-flowing oily water. The media shall have a minimum of 87% void volume to facilitate sludge and dirt particles as they fall off the vertical elements and settle in the sludge compartment. The media when installed in crossflow OWS shall meet US EPA Method 413.2 and also European Standard 858-1.

BAFFLES:  The tank shall be provided with an oil retention & underflow weir, and overflow weir. The underflow weir will be positioned to prevent re-suspension of settled solids.

SLUDGE CHAMBER:  The sludge chamber shall be located prior to the coalescing compartment for the settling of any solids. It shall also prevent any solids from entering the clean water chamber.

OIL SKIMMER:  The clarifier compartment and the oil separation compartment will be provided with rotatable pipe skimmers for gravity decanting of the separated oil to a product storage tank.

CLEAN WATER CHAMBER:  The tank will be provided with a clean water chamber which allows the water to leave the separator by pumped flow through the clean water outlet port.

solids-settling-below-ground-oil-water-separators-1280x427.png

Our new solids settling below ground separator is ideal for any application with high concentration of solids and oil in water.

Most old conventional separators require long retention times, resulting in needlessly large units. They also have little in the way of solids settling. Our new innovative new design has both a much smaller footprint and a much higher removal efficiency for both oil and solids which lowers your total cost of ownership.

How it works:

To enhance separation, these separators contain an inlet diffuser, grit chamber/inlet compartment, down tube, coalescing/separation chamber, oil storage area, effluent compartment, and sheen filter.

Series WB-ES Solids Settling, Below Ground Oil Water Separators

  • In the Grit Chamber, the inlet diffusor initially distributes the incoming water flow evenly over the cross-sectional area of the separator. The free oil (150 micron size or larger) is separated and the settleable solids are captured at the bottom.
  • The suspended solids and dispersed oil then flow upward through the down tube in the Grit Chamber, and over to another diffusor in the Coalescing Chamber.
  • The flow continues through the Coalescing Chamber where the coalescing plates will separate the oil droplets 30 micron size and larger up to the surface, and the remaining suspended solids will be captured beneath the coalescing plates.
  • Finally, a removable Sheen Filter inside the up tube in the Effluent Compartment will remove carryover, smaller droplets of oil, and mechanical emulsions.

Performance Standards

  • Utilizes patented, revolutionary, non- plugging coalescing plates which remove free oil droplets as small as 30 microns
  • Performance guarantee based on influent characteristics
  • Will achieve discharge of 5 ppm or less in accordance with CEN EN 858-1
  • Warranted for (1) year on material and workmanship and (10) years against external corrosion
