The series 86 units are compact separation systems based on the Suparator® principle.
The all stainless units, with only two adjustments, make a very reliable and versatile system, which has been used already in many industries and applications.
Thanks to a wide range of powerful extensions, like flush headers and rake skimmers, the units can be used for the most challenging applications.
The 86 units are available in volumes (gross volume) from 160 to 320 liters, suitable for a flow from 750 to 1200 l/h. That makes them suitable for aqueous cleaning baths and coolant systems of up to 5.000 liters in volume, to control the oil concentration and maximize the life of the medium. The 86 series units are also used for many other applications.
With a footprint of 1.2 x 0,5 m2 they are very compact and easily integrated in existing situations. The standard configurations, fully assembled and tested prior to shipment, make it a unit which is easily installed and started up.

The 86/xxxGR11 configuration is the most commonly used configuration. It is the standard system for many application in both aqueous cleaning and coolant. Because of the many features which are available for this system it is also the unit which is used in many challenging, non-standard, applications.
The configuration of the 86.
The sketch at the right shows a cross sectional view of the 86 tank.
- The aqueous medium with oil enters here.
- Most to all of the flow, the main flow, comes up here and enters into the Suparator® device, carrying the oil traces along.
- Some of the flow, the bypass flow, can be made to follow this route, through the siphon and into the effluent compartment.
- Whether there is a bypass flow, and how much, is set through lowering or raising the siphon by turning it clockwise or counter clockwise respectively. The standard setting is no bypass flow.
- The aqueous medium which collects in the effluent compartment is discharged through this outlet.
- The actual separation of oil takes place here, in the Suparator® device, with the patented construction. Here the oil traces are collected, concentrated and than separated.
- Pure oil passes over the weir, into the oil trough, and is discharged via the outlet at the side.
- A coalescing filter is possible but strongly advised against. It adds little in terms of efficiency while accumulation of dirt will make frequent cleaning necessary.

The picture to the right shows an 86/320/002 in use, shortly after start up, showing very nicely how Suparator® works.
- Oil traces are coming to the surface.The clear aqueous fluid is distinctly recognizable.
- Oil is accumulated and concentrated inside the Suparator® device.A brownish layer is formed at the surface; an oil film is build up.
- Oil builds up a thick layer in front of the oil weir. Oil is concentrated before separation.
- Oil passes over the oil weir, into the oil trough.

The large number of options which are available for the 86 series units make it a very versatile system.
- Non-drip cover.
- Flush header for automatic, in line, cleaning; reduces the need for periodic cleaning.
- Insulation; a layer of insulation material with stainless steel outer sheeting.
- External oil buffer fitted to the side of the tank; used as pump buffer and provide with means to fit level sensors.
- Foam knock-off bar; used to stop foam from being separated with the oil.
- Rake skimmer; used in cases where the floating matter is not liquid but more like a paste or grease of scum.
- Sludge rake; used to discharge thick, viscose material like sludge or scum from the oil trough.
