Oil Water Separator
The Ultraspin oil water separator has a high separation efficiency. It requires little or no maintenance or operator attention.
Our oil water separators achieve these unique benefits by using our innovative hydrocyclone technology that generates high centrifugal separation forces.
Our oil water separator systems have won awards from our customers, including large corporations.
For oil water separator flows of less than 3.5 m3/hr (15.4 gpm) Ultraspin has standard packages that include all the accessories needed for typical oily wastewater treatment installations. Follow this link to see more details.
Oil water separators are also available for higher flows. Ultraspin has supplied systems for many applications including treating meat and dairy industries effluent water. Follow the link to see more details.
How does the Oil Water Separator work?
This oily water separator works on a powerful but simple vortex principle. The Oily water is pumping tangentially into a cone shaped separator. This creates a spinning vortex which which creates the separation force.
The vortex accelerates as it moves down the cone. These strong centrifugal forces separate the heavier water phase to the outside of the vortex while the lighter oil phase moves to the centre.
The separated oil is removed through an orifice located in the inlet end and the treated water is discharged through the opposite end.
Why is it such a powerful separator?
This oil water separator relies on strong centrifugal forces for oil separation. Other oil water separators like coalescing plate pack, petrol interceptors or similar oil separators, rely on weaker gravitational forces for oil separation.
The centrifugal force generated inside the vortex of the Ultraspin oil separator is in the order of 1,000 times the force of gravity! With such force good oily wastewater treatment can be achieved even with emulsified oil droplets.
