The difference between self-cleaning water separators & self-cleaning oil separators

Self-cleaning water separators and self-cleaning oil separators are essential devices for businesses in several industries that require purified liquids. Water separators are used to separate water from heavy chemicals like oils and gasoline, whereas self-cleaning oil separators are used to purify chemicals like oil and gasoline from solids.

How does a self-cleaning water separator work ?

Self-cleaning water separators work like conventional water filters but are made specifically to separate oils from samples of water. The devices consist of several important components, two of the primary ones being the weirs and skimmers which are responsible for the separation of water from oil.
These components essentially work in tandem to collect oils from the topmost layers of water samples.

How does a self-cleaning oil separator work?

Self-cleaning oil separators on the other hand are much more complex as they separate liquids from solids. To do this, the chemical flows into the bowl through a feed pipe before entering a distributor where the separation takes place. The liquid is then accelerated in a rotational direction by the bowl, the phase in which the light substances (the chemical being treated) are separated from the heavier solids.

To achieve this, the liquids flow to the centre of the bowl while the solids are accelerated out towards the diameter of the bowl. The two substances are then expelled into the two upper chambers of the separator where two centripetal pumps allow them to flow into the outlet pipelines for distribution.

Which self-cleaning separator should you use?

This depends on the task at hand. If you merely require water purification, a water separator is your best bet. If you require oil and gasoline purification however, oil separators are your best bet. To learn more about self-cleaning water and oil separators, get in touch with us today!

Reasons to use a self-cleaning Water separator

When it comes to water purification, self-cleaning water separators are among the best devices anyone can use to separate water from heavier chemicals like gasoline and oil. They have many applications in several industries that require water purification and offer businesses of all sizes numerous benefits.

These devices are primarily used to purify water of heavy chemicals that could be harmful to the environment. Their usage in the oil and petrol industries is paramount to clean water before allowing it to be expelled back into a water network.

How does a self-cleaning water separator work?

Water separators have several components that work in harmony to purify water, one of the primary ones being the weirs and skimmers. The weir component holds back oil as streams of water pass under it. The skimmer then continuously ‘peels’ off the topmost layers of the oils, allowing the water to become as purified as possible before use or expulsion.

Reasons to invest in a self-cleaning water separator

Easily purifies water content

When you need to clean dirt , sometimes regular filters wont get the job done. Self-cleaning water separators come in handy when pools of water are too filthy to reuse or expel back into a water network. They have several phases of water purification and can remove virtually 100% of oil content from a sample of water.

Help maintain a safe environment

Expelling harmful liquids into a water network can have detrimental effects on the organisms that rely on that network to survive, whether it be humans or animals. Self-cleaning water separators help protect water systems and ensure that businesses working with oil and gasoline are compliant with environmental safety regulations.

Ease of use

Self-cleaning water separators are very easy to use and install. These devices don’t require electricity or chemical gasoline to operate. They are highly efficient and low-cost water purification devices that don’t require much human intervention when working. Get in touch with us today to learn more!

All about Thermo Chemical Platforms

Thermochemical processing is the use of heat to promote chemical transformations of biomass into energy and chemical products. This is the down cycling of organic compounds. This in contrast to fossil fuels, thermochemical platforms have significant environmental advantages. In the world that we live in, we need to recover resources from non-conventional sources, so that we can ease the energy crisis and slow down environmental degradation. This will also help reduce the percentage of land-filled waste.

There are different thermo-chemical conversion routs. These aredependant of the type and quality of waste feedstock, the desired form of energy and several other standards that need to be met. Thermochemical processing can easily be seen as the simplest to adapt to current energy infrastructures and to tackle the inherent diversity in some pieces of waste. The first is combustion with is associated with the creation of carbon oxides and other organic compounds. This method isn’t the most efficient when it comes to producing energy that creates less pollution. The second is gasification which involves partial oxidation. Lastly, there is pyrolysis which involves thermal degradation without the use of oxygen. This process yet still under development leads to the production of energy-dense products that can be used in several applications.

Thermochemical processes transform biomass into synthesis gas or oil. The conversion is highly complex and uses several components and operating conditions one would typically see in petroleum refining. This form of refinery although still in its early stages of development can greatly impact different environments and communities.

All about Waterless Degreasing Platforms

Degreasing is the process of removing grease or oil from different platforms and surfaces. The goal is to degrease a variety of components and areas without using a large number of resources. Several degreasing platforms use water, chemicals and intensive labour to degrease. The problem with water degreasing platforms is that they tent to leave dampness inside the components being degreased. This is where waterless degreasing platforms are the most beneficial.

Vapour degreasing is a waterless degreasing platform. It is a no-touch method, the degreaser is vaporized within the vapour chamber and condensates on the parts that need to be cleaned. This vapour then drips from the surface releasing the grease and removing it along with any other residues with it. Some platforms have additional chambers where a solvent is sprayed to speed up the degreasing process and to clean the area after the degreasing process.

Waterless degreasing platforms have several benefits. Firstly this method of degreasing is less time consuming and requires less effort to degrease the components as it offers the most ideal solution for cleaning electronic parts. Secondly, vapour degreasers offer a greater level of degreasing than traditional means of degreasing. The vapour can easily coat all hard to reach places and tight creases. This means that it offers an optimal clean and finish. The process is simple as the boiling solution acts to dissolve the contaminants and remove them by dripping it off from the part.

Different kinds of Absorbent Platforms and what they are used for

Absorbents platforms are materials that will keep your workplace clean and safe. There are numerous types of absorbent platforms and it depends on the spill or mess that needs to be handled that will determine your choice of absorbent. They also come in various forms such as absorbent socks and pillows, spill mats and pads, industrial rugs and reusable absorbents.


Benefits of Oil Recycling Platforms

Proper management of industrial waste is crucial to protect the natural environment and human health. One large, potentially hazardous waste stream is used automotive lubricating oil. Waste oil is potentially harmful to the environment that a litre of used oil is enough to contaminate one million litres of water.



5 Easy ways to recycle water at home and at the office

There are many different types of water waste including bath water, shower water, rainwater and more. People often allow this water to run down the drain – or, in the case of rainwater, directly into the sewers – without thinking twice. However, the smarter thing to do would be to recycle this water therefore decreasing your overall water use. Here are a few ways to recycle water at home and at the office:


How can Hazardous waste be treated by chemical, thermal, biological and physical methods?

Even after a vigorous hazardous waste reduction program, there will still be large quantities of hazardous wastes requiring treatment and disposal. The treatment solutions have been categorized as physical, chemical, biological and thermal.
