Whenever there is a need for oil separation, there is dirt to be removed as well. Check out the website from our sister company, Lomapro b.v., for innovative solutions on filtration and magnetic separation.
Different from any other oil separator, a Suparator® system has a special construction built in which collects and concentrates the oil before separation. This brings many advantages, resulting in a much more efficient separation and significant savings.
Gravity separators primarily collect the oil; they build an oil layer inside the separator, resulting in long contact times. Suparator® uses gravity separation but adds its three step separation mechanism which causes the oil separation to start early on, the separated oil to be free from water and the contact time being very short.
Suparator® utilizes a three-step separation process: collect, concentrate, separate. The special construction collects any amount of oil, even the smallest traces. The traces are than concentrated, causing water and chemicals to separate from it, and build an oil layer. Finally the oil is separated without water and all within minutes.
Because Suparator® collects and concentrates even traces of oil, it starts removing when the oil concentration is still very low. That means the oil concentration in a process will no longer reach a level where it can have a negative effect on the whole process. The oil problem is eliminated.
Conventional oil separators and skimmers require a thick layer of oil to function properly, but that means long contact times and accumulation of dirt. So it is necessary to keep the oil layer as thin as possible, but than you get a lot of water being separated with the oil. You want neither one nor the other. Because Suparator® can collect and concentrate even traces of oil, it does not rely on thick oil layers to function properly and will separate oil without water.
"Oil" is not oil; "water" is not water. In oil/water separation, "oil" typically is a mixture of substances, plus it contains dirt and other pollutants. "Water" always contains soluble substances, either as pollutions from the process or intentionally added, as in aqueous cleaners or machine coolants. The longer the contact time, the more all these substances start to interact. Add bacteria growth to that and what you get is a nasty mixture which, at best, can only partially be separated. The shorter the contact time, the cleaner the process, the better the oil control.
