Oil emulsion separation of process water with an ultrafiltration unit

Oil emulsion separation

Oily process water reuse

Radiators coming out of production have to be tested for watertightness in test tanks. The problem for this radiator manufacturer was that the water in the test tanks became contaminated far too quickly with the adhering oil residue from the production process. This led to a high invoice for water consumption. By separating the oil present in the water of the test tanks, this water can be reused, which means a very substantial saving for the client. This oil emulsion separation is realised by means of ultrafiltration techniques for radiator manufacturers Henrad in Herentals Belgium and Caradon Stelrad in Nuth the Netherlands. Both companies are part of the Caradon Radiator Group, headquartered in the United Kingdom.
