What are oil water separators?

An oil water separator is a device used to treat wastewater. It removes oils, grease and hydrocarbons, leaving only the non-hazardous water. The wastewater can then be disposed of safely in drainage. There are different kinds of oil water separators, and each one has a different capability. They are used for varying commercial and industrial applications. They also treat contaminants found in water, including free-floating oil, emulsified oil, dissolved oil, and suspended solids.

See our oil water separators in action

Witness firsthand how our cutting-edge oil water separators successfully addressed a critical environmental challenge faced by Swinburne University, showcasing our remarkable efficacy in mitigating oil and hydrocarbon contamination, reducing environmental impact, and achieving compliance with rigorous regulatory standards.

Case Study

Swinburne University

Swinburne Uni needed to clean its earth-moving equipment and discharge water using sustainable solutions and minimised operating costs. To do this, Cleanawater provided a portable wash bay and an oil water separator. Using coalescing plate technology, we were able to separate oil and grease from washdown water, allowing the purified water to pass through municipal sewers.
