  • Oil Water Separation

    An industrial facility imports oily wastes and separated them using a thermal process. The process raises the oil water temperature to 180 degrees F and uses insulated tanks to obtain an oil/water split. The facility had a 3-day workweek processing 100-200K gallons/day and then maintenance of the equipment the rest of the workweek and often weekend(s). The majority of the work was keeping the ...

  • Oil Skimmer makes oil/water separator more efficient

    Industrial facilities depend on oil/water separators to separate oil from its waste water. While oil/water separators are a helpful component to a plant's wastewater system, oil/water separators traditionally do not provide an efficient method of removing oil once it has been separated from the waste stream. Traditionally, the separator industry has either used overflow skimmer pipes or weirs, or ...

  • Separation

    Introduction: Ex situ separation can be performed by many processes. Gravity separation and sieving/physical separation are two well-developed processes that have long been primary methods for treating municipal wastewaters. Magnetic separation, on the other hand, is a much newer separation process that is still being tested. Gravity Separation Gravity ...

  • Kimre Inc. LIQUI-NOMIX oil-water separators

    Liquid - liquid mixtures of contaminant oils (or organic solvents) in water (or aqueous solvents) can be separated economically and efficiently with gravity settlers or decanters. To achieve high efficiency separations, the settling unit must include a coalescing stage for removal of small droplets of oil. Kimre Inc.'s LIQUI-NOMIX coalescers provide high efficiency polishing of liquid streams and ...

  • Not all oil water separators are created equal

    Efficiency is meaningless unless engineers and maintenance professionals are able to sustain it for a long periods of time. This webinar addresses three major questions: How do I prevent my company from incurring fines and citations? How do I increase the time between maintenance/cleaning schedules and stMl produce satisfactory effluent? How do I save my company money in regard ...

  • Simple design criteria and efficiency of hydrodynamic vortex separators

    Vortex separators still draw attention from specialists investigating the process of removing particles suspended in liquids. The devices are locally applied for waste water treatment in different systems – from storm waste water sewerage to water circulation in fish ponds. However, the methods for separator design presented in the literature are questionable. The paper presents two ...

  • Oil/water separator and oil skimmer companies work together to help power generation facilities

    Power generation facilities depend on oil/water separators to separate oil from its waste water. While oil/water separators are a helpful component to a plant’s wastewater system, oil/water separators traditionally do not provide an efficient method of removing oil once it has been separated from the waste stream. Knowing what his customers were faced with, Dave Goding, president, Mercer ...

  • Electrokinetic Separation

    Introduction The principle of electrokinetic remediation relies upon application of a low-intensity direct current through the soil between ceramic electrodes that are divided into a cathode array and an anode array. This mobilizes charged species, causing ions and water to move toward the electrodes. Metal ions, ammonium ions, and positively charged organic compounds move toward the cathode. ...

  • Improving GAC efficiency

    PROJECT BACKGROUND: A Superfund Site located in the Northeast US was previously used for reclaiming and re-refining waste oils from 1945-1985. A TSCA inspection uncovered the presence of PCB’s in several lagoons onsite. The site had seven lagoons containing over 9,000,000 gallons of water and oil. Due to heavy rains, the lagoons fill frequently. Therefore, several emergency removal actions were ...
