Oil-Water Separator

Above ground steel tank coalescing type separator utilizing polypropylene porous tubes to capture droplets.

Oil/water separators are commonly used to separate oils from a variety of waste water discharges, as in industrial waste streams and storm water discharges. A properly designed, installed and operated oil/water separator system prevents the entry of unacceptable levels of oil contamination to a storm sewer or sanitary sewer system.
