Oil separator for industrial wastewater treatment

Oil separators and separation of oil emulsions

If you are looking for a solution to separate oil from your process baths, we have got you covered. We deliver several types of oil separators. From the most simple oil separator, over the more sophisticated Suparator oil separators, to the membrane technology solutions for oil-water emulsions. These oil separators are often used in process baths in the automotive and galvanic industries (metal processing, coating and surface treatment of metals). Good cleaning is of fundamental importance for the quality of the end product. The degreasing effect of cleaning agents can decrease as more oil and contaminants (such as dust or grinding residue) are introduced into the cleaning agent. Therefore, a good oil separation is necessary.

Which techniques are used for oil separation?

Suparator®: The most efficient oil separator

Suparator oil separators are without doubt the most effective oil separators on the market. The oil can be completely separated from the cleaning agent within minutes. Oils and greases are then no longer a reason to replace the cleaning agent. Almost all major car manufacturers use Suparator®.

How does a suparator work?

Suparator® is the only oil separator that continuously keeps the oil content in the cleaning agent at a very low level. The system consists of two parts: a skimmer and a suparator unit. 

The Suparskim® skimmer is mounted in the bath and moves with the liquid level. The skimmer is designed in such a way that the top layer is continuously skimmed off and the formation of an oil layer is prevented.

The skimmed top layer, with cleaning agent and traces of oil, is then passed through a Suparator® unit. In the Suparator®, the oil is collected, concentrated and then separated in a number of steps. The clean cleaning agent is returned via the bottom section.
