AquaSweep™

Gravity oil water separators

AquaSweep™ Gravity Oil Water Separators are designed for gravity-induced separation of oil from water. This system is passive, meaning that the attributes of the incoming oily water will directly determine the characteristics of treated outgoing water. The separators are designed for gravity removal of non-emulsified hydrocarbons, i.e., motor oils, lightweight oils, and related petroleum products with a specific gravity of less than 1.0.

How does the AquaSweep™ Oil Water Separator Work?

Depending upon the AquaSweep™ model, the contaminated oily water follows a path through various pre-selected coalescer materials. The AquaSweep™ Gravity Oil Water Separator construction slows the flow and turbulence of the incoming water. The interplay of this motion, coupled with buoyant forces and contact with the coalescer material(s) cause droplets of oil to rise and combine into larger oil globules. The globules rise to the surface and float on top of the water. Sludge and other matter settle and accumulate at the bottom of the tank compartment. The resultant storm water, having been cleaned of these contaminants, exits the separator, below the oil level for further treatment or is directed back into the environment. Accumulation of oil and sludge within the separator are contained until they can be removed and disposed of properly.
