Proven, patented method of fluid reclamation, extend the life of soluble oils, coolants, and washwater.

The PRAB Oil/Water Separator uses a proven and patented method for gravity separation of oil from water to less than 15 ppm. This fluid reclamation separator is designed to meet and exceed all performance requirements of U.S. Coast Guard 46CFR162.050 and IMO Resolution A393 (X) of effluent discharge of 15 ppm free and mechanically dispersed oil in water.

PRAB Oil/Water Separator filtration technology uses a double packed, fixed, porous media bed for accelerated fluid reclamation allowing the unit to be compact and lightweight. The system consists of the oil/water separator, supply pump with motor and a floating oil skimmer. Optional items include electrical controls, level switches, lid with vent, clean water discharge pump oil holding tank, oil discharge pump, and other customer specified controls and alarms.
