Oil Water Separator - Coalescing Plate Separator - CPS:


OIL WATER SEPARATOR - COALESCING PLATE SEPARATOR SYSTEM (CPS)

The Q water – Standard flow range of its oil water separators are designed to treat oily contaminated waste water streams typically generated from:
• Wash-Down of Vehicles – Large & Small
• Machinery in Manufacturing & Fabrication
• Washing Equipment at Industrial & Mining Sites.
• Mechanical Vehicles Repair Shop
• Garage Forecourts & Driveway

Q water’s oil water separators are ideal to treat the waste-water stream to a very low level (ppm) that is suitable for discharge to most domestic sewer systems, ground seepage, leach drain, soak-well or a plastic lined evaporative pond.

An oil water separator that uses coalescing plates to collect small droplets of suspended oil droplets in water is sometimes also known as a CPS (coalescing plate separator).
These simple and efficient CPS units can be either large concrete in-ground systems for very large flows, or more commonly they are smaller self-supporting package systems that are assembled and installed close to the oily water sump for processing the waste water stream of smaller more manageable flows.

Coalescing Plate Separators (CPS) enhance gravity (reference is to "Stokes Law") to separate free suspended oil and light solids from the waste water stream, but are unable to separate chemical emulsions brought about by the usage of detergents, degreaser, engine coolants or other types of chemicals.

If chemicals are to be used in conjunction with a Coalescing Plate Separator on a vehicle wash-bay, they should only be small quantities of proven "quick-break" types which allow the chemical emulsions to break up quickly (within 10 minutes) and release the free oil droplets back into the collected waste water stream for efficient processing.

Each design by Q water of its oil water coalescing plate separators in its standard processing range, has been designed to achieve the best minimum effluent discharge water quality (usually ~<10ppm output). Other low residual concentration levels of hydrocarbons in the treated water stream can be computer calculated and achieved given the known input hydrocarbon concentration levels to be treated. Discuss with us your specific requirements.

The water quality output is expressed as milligrams per litre (mg/L) or parts per million (ppm) and is calculated based not only on the treated water flow rate, but on a range of other influent (inputs) parameters such as water temperature, oil specific gravity and the concentration of oil in the influent water stream.

All Q water Coalescing Plate Separator (CPS) waste-water treatment systems use the acclaimed and most efficient oleophilic collection plates of its type; these are manufactured by FACET® (USA) and due to the high surface collection area and materials of construction, they are super-efficient at processing and reducing the oil concentration levels in the waste water stream; these collection plates will also handle and remove some fine suspended solids. Coarser solids and accumulated floating waste materials should be settled and screened prior to processing

When you need a bit of help and guidance to select a suitable and cost competitive oil water separator system to get you compliant with your local authorities, give our sales team a call and find out how a Q water system will keep you compliant. sales@qwater.com.au

Oil Water Separator - Hydrocyclone Separator:


OIL WATER SEPARATOR - HYDROCYCLONE OILY WATER SEPARATOR SYSTEM

The Q water – Standard flow range of its oil water HYDROCYCLONE separators are designed to treat oily contaminated waste water streams typically generated from:

• Wash-Down of Vehicles – Large & Small
• Machinery in Manufacturing & Fabrication
• Washing Equipment at Industrial & Mining Sites.
• Mechanical Vehicles Repair Shop
• Garage Forecourts & Driveway

 

Q water’s oil water treatment systems are ideal to treat the wastewater stream to a very low level (ppm) that is suitable for discharge to most domestic sewer systems, ground seepage, leach drain, soak-well or a plastic lined evaporative pond.

Q water’s proprietary HYDROCYCLONE separators are designed to extract oil found in suspension with water; our unique system design provides great effluent water quality with minimal maintenance requirements. 

Our oil water Hydrocyclone separators use high quality Duplex SS – HYDROCYCLONES - liners as standard equipment; within the specially engineered Hydrocyclone vortex head, small droplets of oil suspended in water are forced at high centrifugal “G” forces where the concentrated lighter density hydrocarbons spiral upwards and into the centre discharge stream which is then allowed to pass through a small orifice and into the oil sludge separation tank for further processing and final oil separation. 

Like Coalescing Plate Separators (CPS), HYDROCYCLONES are used to separate free suspended oil and light suspended solids from the waste water stream, but are unable to separate chemical emulsions brought about by the usage of detergents, degreasers, engine coolants or other types of chemicals. 

If chemicals are to be used in conjunction with a Hydrocyclone Separator on a vehicle wash-bay, they should only be small quantities of proven "quick-break" types which allow the chemical emulsions to break up quickly (within 10 minutes) and release the free oil droplets back into the collected waste water stream for efficient processing. 

 

Each of the oil water HYDROCYCLONE separators in Q water's standard processing range, has been designed to achieve the best minimum effluent water quality possible (usually ~<5ppm output). Other low residual concentration levels of hydrocarbons in the treated water stream can be computer calculated and achieved given the known input hydrocarbon concentration levels to be treated. Talk to us about your special requirements.

The water quality output of TPH (total petroleum hydrocarbons) is expressed as milligrams per litre (mg/L) or parts per million (ppm) and is calculated based not only on the treated water flow rate, but on a range of other influent (inputs) parameters such as water temperature, oil specific gravity and the concentration of oil in the influent water stream. 

The use of HYDROCYCLONE technology is better used when there are large volumes of water with small concentrations (ppm) of hydrocarbons present in the collection sump waiting to be treated. Oil slugs and high solids loading in the waste water stream should be avoided as these may exceed the design criteria and cause carry over into the clean underflow water discharge stream.
