Within the tramp oil separator system, contaminated fluid flows through a series of baffles and a porous media bed where free and mechanically dispersed oils are separated from the fluid. The clarified fluid flows over the effluent discharge weir back to the reservoir for reuse.

The collected oils, bacteria, slime and inverted emulsions are collected at the top of the separator and automatically discharged from the tramp oil separator system by an adjustable weir into a tote or other container.

Various models are available to accommodate different flow rates including:
