PRAB > Water & Wastewater Solutions > Oil Water Separators

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.

  • Down-flow gravity coalescing separator
  • Reduced haul-away costs up to 90%
  • Decreased water consumption
  • Increased life of soluble oils, coolants, washwater, rinse water, and pressure wash-down water (or process water)
  • Separates oil from water to less than 15 ppm
  • Double packed, fixed, porous media bed
  • Compact and lightweight
  • High quality carbon steel (304 stainless steel units available)
  • PVC oil weirs (stainless steel available)
  • Self-contained for simple operation
  • System includes separator, separator supply pump (electric or air), and floating oil skimmer

PRAB Oil/Water Separators are perfect for fluid reclamation in the following applications:

  • Rinse Water
  • Wash Water
  • Wastewater
  • Steam cleaning operations
  • Compressor blowdown
  • Machinery pits
  • Gas stations
  • Non-contract process water
  • Refueling areas

This standard oil/water separator system is made of high quality carbon steel with epoxy coating (304 stainless steel units are also available). Oil weirs, as well as all piping, are PVC, galvanized steel, or stainless steel separator. Supply pump is offered in a variety of materials and is driven by an electric motor. An air operated double diaphragm (AOD) pump is also available.
