Parkson’s Model SRC and SRM Oil/Water Separators offer a reliable, compact, and economical solution to a wide array of oil/water separation applications. The Oil/Water Separators remove free, non-emulsified oil and settleable solids to produce an effluent with less than 10 mg/l of oil droplets 20 micron or larger.
The influent flow first enters an oleophilic (affinity for oil, not for water) slant-rib coalescing pack where oil droplets adhere to the ribbed pack and merge with other droplets which grow in size and rise to the liquid surface. The design of the coalescing pack and oil attracting characteristics of the media ensures the highest degree of surface contact and coalescing efficiency. Accumulated oil at the surface displaces water and begins to overflow a weir into an oil reservoir where it can either flow out by gravity or can be pumped.
