Wilson offers above ground oil water separators ranging in size from 15 gallons per minute to 150 gallons per minute. Larger units can be built to order.
How Does An Oil Water Separator Work?
A standard oil water separator works by gravity separation. The oil water separator provides a wide area where the rate of wastewater flow is reduced significantly to allow the oil droplets a chance to rise to the surface instead of being carried along by the wastewater. The flow rate through an oil water separator is a function of the total volume of the separator. Most oil water separators are designed to hold the water for 10 minutes. 10 minutes is the industry standard for holding time. For example; if you want to treat a wastewater stream flowing at 7 gallons per minute, holding the water for the standard 10 minutes, the oil water separator tank should be a minimum of 70 gallons. The math looks like this; 10 minutes holding time X 7 gallons/minute = 70 gallons.
