What is an oil-water separator?


An oil-water separator treats wastewater by splitting oil and water into their respective components for safe discharge. Throughout the process, the device separates oil-water emulsions through natural filtration patterns and gravitational separation.


Oil-water separators are available in multiple sizes to accommodate existing compressor systems or fit into a new system layout.


How does an traditional oil-water separator operate?


Traditional oil-water separators rely on gravitational separation. The wastewater condensate passes through multiple filtration chambers and utilises a filter bag to remove large particles. The collection chamber creates a natural, gravity-based filtration stage where oil droplets separate from the water and rise to the surface. The remaining oil particles are then absorbed by a floating polypropylene filter bag.


Cleaner condensate continues flowing from the bag into the second part of the chamber with a lower oil trace. In some oil-water separators, the second chamber includes an additional filter to separate the remaining oil from the condensate. Once the condensate has moved out of the chamber and through the exit valve, it is safe to be routed into the sewer system.


How does MstnLand oil-water separator operate?


MstnLand oil-water separator uses the oilphilicity and hydrophobicity of graphene to improve the properties of conventional adsorbent materials, The adsorption material can absorb oil and do not absorb water, so as to effectively remove oil slick, dispersed oil, dissolved oil and part of soluble organic solvent in the water, to achieve the purpose of oil and water separation.
