An oil / water separator is installed as part of the compressed air system and simply reduces the oil concentration in the collected condensate to a level allowed for discharge.
Once the oil saturated condensate has been effectively removed from a compressed air system, it cannot be discharged directly to drain without reducing the oil content to values within the legal disposal limits. An oil / water separator is the solution to remove oil saturated condensate.
This separation allows a greater amount of clean water, up to 99.9% of the total condensate, to be safely discharged into the sewer and the relatively small amount of concentrated oil disposed of in a legitimate and economically safe manner.
