  • Oil

  • Oil separation and removal systems for Oil drilling & saltwater disposal industry - Oil, Gas & Refineries - Oil

    Oil separation and removal systems for Oil drilling & saltwater disposal industry

    In the oil drilling and saltwater disposal industry, companies must properly dispose of saltwater (used in oil production) from oil-production sites. Oil drilling and/or saltwater disposal companies store this wastewater, which often has residual oil in it following extraction from the ground, in outdoor disposal pits according to regulatory guidelines.

  • Petrochemical

  • Oil separation and removal systems for Petrochemical industry - Chemical & Pharmaceuticals - Petrochemical

    Oil separation and removal systems for Petrochemical industry

    In petrochemical plants, process oil and oil used for equipment can leak or spill. Water is used to channel spilled oil to plant treatment systems where it then needs removed from the wastewater solution to ensure compliance with wastewater regulations.

  • Steel

  • Automobile & Ground Transport - Trains and Railways

  • Oil separation and removal systems for Railroad industry - Automobile & Ground Transport - Trains and Railways

    Oil separation and removal systems for Railroad industry

    In the railroad industry, oil is prevalent – oil leaks and fuel spills are commonplace, oil and fuel is often washed off of locomotives during cleaning prior to maintenance, and more. To help ensure compliance with wastewater regulations and maintain environmental responsibility, railroad yards direct collected oil, fuel, wash water and rainwater to collection pits or catch basins.

  • Food

  • Oil separation and removal systems for the Food and beverage industry - Food and Beverage - Food

    Oil separation and removal systems for the Food and beverage industry

    From packaged food producers to snack-food manufacturers and more, those in the food and beverage industry typically find oil – such as that from kettles and fryers or canning/seamer applications – often mixes with wash water used during production and/or cleaning. The resulting water/oil mix becomes part of the wastewater stream, complicating the wastewater treatment process by making it more expensive, more time-consuming, and less effective.

  • Water Treatment

  • Oil separation and removal systems for Parts washing industry - Water and Wastewater - Water Treatment

    Oil separation and removal systems for Parts washing industry

    In the parts washing industry, metal parts need to be thoroughly washed prior to being painted or coated to eliminate any oil that may be present on the metal and ensure the metal touts a clean surface. During the washing process, residual oil and grease is washed off the parts; however, in the process, it mixes with wash water, which is then collected in a containment area.

  • Manufacturing, Other

  • Oil separation and removal systems for Military industry - Manufacturing, Other

    Oil separation and removal systems for Military industry

    In the military, there are various instances in which oil recovery and removal is necessary. From properly disposing of cooking oil from mess halls to effectively removing spilled or leaked oil from military airplane, ship, or tank fleets as well as other heavy equipment. As in many industries, oil from military applications is often mixed with water as a result of cleaning and washing processes.

  • Water and Wastewater

  • Metal

  • Oil separation and removal systems for Metal machining industry - Metal

    Oil separation and removal systems for Metal machining industry

    In the metal machining industry, oil used to lubricate equipment can leak into coolant during the machining process. When oil is not removed from coolant, the coolant can deteriorate and bacteria can grow. Additionally, wastewater and wash water pick up coolant and oil during the machining process – any coolant or oil must be separated and removed to ensure compliance with wastewater regulations.

  • Chemical & Pharmaceuticals

  • Oil separation and removal systems for Chemical industry - Chemical & Pharmaceuticals

    Oil separation and removal systems for Chemical industry

    In the chemical industry, oil is often discharged into wastewater during processes such as cooling or polymerization. This oil/water solution typically collects in common industry basins following completion of one of these processes or sumps when rainwater washes away oil that has leaked or spilled.

  • Mining

  • Oil separation and removal systems for Mining industry - Mining

    Oil separation and removal systems for Mining industry

    Mining equipment is known to commonly leak oil and fuel. And, more often than not, wash water is used to rinse such leaks. This oil/water solution is often funneled into collection pits where any oil must be separated and removed from the wastewater to ensure compliance with wastewater regulations.
