A gravity separator is a device that separates different components where separating the components with gravity is practical. Gravity separators, as the name suggests, use gravity as the primary force of enabling separation.
Corrugated plate interceptor separators (CPI Separators) are machinery that is mostly used in the treatment of effluent water to separate oil or suspended solids from the water. They are commonly used by oil refining companies and are a highly safe and efficient method of wastewater treatment.
In the treatment of oily water, plate packs are used in the CPI separators to improve the economy and size of the separation system.
Once separated the oil components collect in the corrugations while solids accumulate in the troughs.
Water and oil are naturally designed to separate. A CPI separator is a quality oil water separator system which is designed to separate the components quickly and efficiently. CPI separators are designed to recover the maximum amount of hydrocarbons from wastewater and cleanse the effluent for further treatment.
How It Works
Oily water enters the CPI at the top of the device and flows downwards between the...
Since early times sewerage and other waste have been dumped into waterways, with people relying on nature to break up the bacteria. Population growth and increased use of technology have resulted in a greater amount of wastewater, and advanced have been made to remove contaminants by way of wastewater treatment.
When properly treated,chemical wastewater is improved and purified, with some or all of the contaminates being removed. Whether domestic or industrial, wastewater needs to be efficiently treated so that it can safely and hygienically return to nature.
The Importance of Efficient Domestic and Industrial Waste Water Treatment
Treated chemical wastewater is returned to the environment by way of our waterways. This can be to the ocean or to rivers, or to groundwater which lies beneath the earth’s surface. This water is inhabited by our marine life, and can also be the water that we drink. It is vital that effluent...
