Considerations when renting a oil water separator

When you are renting an oil water separator for your operation, consider the size of your operation to determine which system, and how many systems, will be right for you. Consider the features of each of the systems and the techniques that they utilize for separating the water and oil. Getting high quality machines is always important, so be sure to find those that come from a trusted and known manufacturer in the field. Additionally, consider the control system and how it works to make sure it will integrate well with your other machinery.

Features of oil water separators

Even though the oil water separators from different manufacturers may have some different individual features, they tend to have a number of elements in common. These include being fully automatic with simple to use controls, and simple maintenance. The designs for the machines need to meet the standards of the American Petroleum Institute. Keep in mind that there are different techniques used with these types of separators, although the end goal of separating the water from oil and other contaminants remains the same.

How oil water separators work

The gravity separation systems utilize "Stokes Law", which explains how the oil and other contaminants separate from the water based on the specific gravity between the wastewater and the contaminants. The majority of the suspended solids will eventually settle at the bottom of the separator, essentially becoming a layer of sediment. The oil, on the other hand, will rise to the top, and the wastewater will remain between the two. The oil is then skimmed from the top, and a scraper will remove the sediment layer that's on the bottom. The water will then be transferred for further treatment. Some oil water separators may use different techniques and principles to work.

About oil water separators
