Oil Water Separators

SS-MEGA-OWS Oil Water Separator

The SS MEGA-OWS parallel plate oil water separator is sized according to the American Petroleum Institutes Publication No. 421 formula for oil water separator sizing. This separator will remove virtually all free and dispersed oil from the wastewater. The effluent shall contain less than 10mg/1 of oil droplets greater than 20 microns with a specific gravity of 0.89 or less.

The Standard Oil Water Separator Includes

  • Removable PVC coalescing media with spacing options for low, medium or high viscosity and solids loading applications.
  • Adjustable effluent weirs for correct flow and laminar distribution conditions.
  • Integral oil reservoirs.
  • Integral effluent chambers.
  • 304 stainless steel lid assemblies with lifting handles.

Oil Water Separator – Materials Of Construction

  • The tank shell, baffles, fittings and lids are fabricated of 304 stainless steel.
  • The media pack is fabricated of oil attracting (oleophilic) cross corrugated coalescing media PVC material.

Oil Water Separator – Options Includes

  • Integral pump rails and skids, freeze protection, level sensors, pump packages and extra fittings.
  • Polypropylene, 304 or 316 stainless steel media packs for chemical and temperature resistance.
  • Polishing filter cartridges offer an efficient polishing step for superior removal of oil contamination including emulsified oil.

Upgrade your OWS with a MYCELX Industrial Polisher to remove trace oil, gas, diesel fuel, and other hydrocarbon pollutants so effluent can always be safely discharged.

  • Renders Oil into a Cohesive Viscoelastic Mass upon Contact
  • Eliminates Re-Entrainment
  • Is sensitive enough to treat emulsified oil & robust enough to capture unemulsified oil without plugging up or failing due to high dP which is the most common failure for other polisher media.
  • Will discharge highly emulsified bilge water at under to 15 ppm with no visible sheen

Replacement polishing filter cartridges infused with MYCELX are available to replace inferior and ineffective filter cartridges.
