An oil water separator (OWS) is a piece of equipment used to separate oil and water mixtures into their separate components. There are many different types of oil-water separator. Each has different oil separation capability and are used in different industries. Oil water separators are designed and selected after consideration of oil separation performance parameters and life cycle cost considerations. "Oil" can be taken to mean mineral, vegetable and animal oils, and the many different hydrocarbons.
Oil water separators can be designed to treat a variety of contaminants in water including free floating oil, emulsified oil, dissolved oil and suspended solids. Not all oil separator types are capable of separating all contaminants. The most common performance parameters considered are:
|Minimum Order Quantity||1 Unit|
|Purifiers Type||Alfa Laval Oil Separator|
|Model Name/Number||Alfa Laval MAB 103|
Separation takes place in a solids-retaining bowl that can be arranged for either clarification or purification. In both cases, the contaminated oil is fed into the separator through the centre, and it is separated by centrifugal force into its various phases, the heaviest phase (sludge and water) being forced outwards to the periphery of the bowl. The accumulation of sludge is periodically removed from the bowl by hand.Installation
The oil is pumped, heated, and separated as shown in the figure. A liquid seal in the separator bowl prevents the oil from escaping through the water outlet. If this seal is broken, an alarm device is activated. With unmanned engine rooms, the
signals are transmitted to a remote control unit. When the seal is broken, the three-way valve shuts off the oil feed and the oil is recirculated until the fault is corrected.
