A simple, passive, construction! No controls, no instruments, no moving parts. Just making the laws of physics work for you. That's all, but it means everything in the separation of oil from water.
The Suparator® principle is a patented solution for the removal of floating substances, like oil, from water or other aqueous media. Initially developed for oil spill recovery applications, the principle has shown to be incomparably effective in any oil/water separation application.
The advantages of the Suparator® unit.
Different from any other oil separation technology, Suparator® actively collects, concentrates and actually removes oil from the process. This 3-step mechanism, collect - concentrate - separate, offers significant advantages.
- The oil is separated without water which means it is not a chemical waste and has a certain value. It can for instance be used as a fuel in incineration furnaces.
- Because the separation starts when the concentration of oil is still very low, the oil concentration in the process will no longer rise to unacceptable levels and the life time of the cleaner or coolant is extended to the maximum.
- The oil is removed very quickly, minimizing the contact time between pollution (oil) and chemistry, and avoiding different oils from mixing. That eliminates undesirable reactions between different oils and between oils and chemistry, which makes a very big difference for the life time of the medium (cleaner, coolant etc.)
- Because the oil is removed quickly, dirt and fine particles in the oil can not settle out in the process and are removed with the oil. Fine particles, which otherwise would remain suspended in the medium, are removed from the process with the oil.
