Oil Water Separators For Automotive Workshops
Streamlined oil separation from auto workshop wastewater
Key wastewater challenges for the auto workshop industry
- The discharge of wastewater containing oil, grease, and other contaminants.
- Oily wastewater running municipal sewer systems can lead to violations and fines.
- Reliance on equipment that requires lubrication results in oily water discharge.
- Treating oily wastewater can be expensive, especially for smaller auto workshops.
- Operational efficiency for an auto workshop decreases without a separation system.
- The release of harmful substances into local water bodies.
Industry overview - managing oil in auto workshops
An oil water separator is used in auto workshops to effectively separate and remove oil, grease, and other contaminants from the wastewater generated during various automotive maintenance and repair processes. This ensures compliance with environmental regulations and prevents the release of harmful substances into the environment.
Cleanawater's oil water separator serves as a vital solution for the auto workshop industry, effectively addressing the challenge of managing oily wastewater. With capacities ranging from 1,000L to 5,000L nominal flow rate per hour, our separators can be easily installed and maintained, helping all auto workshops meet and maintain water authority regulations.
Auto workshop oil separator products
Our coalescing plate separators are available in polyethylene and stainless steel.
In the auto workshop industry, Cleanawater's polyethylene oil water separators offer a cost-effective solution for efficiently managing the wastewater generated during vehicle maintenance and repair processes. These separators are lightweight, durable, and corrosion-resistant, which aligns well with the demanding nature of auto workshops.
In contrast, Cleanawater's stainless steel oil water separators are tailored for auto workshops with more demanding wastewater needs. Crafted from high-quality stainless steel, they boast unparalleled durability and corrosion resistance, making them ideal for intensive use in auto workshops.

The pre-treatment stage involves filling the oil water separator with the contaminated water from engine wash down and vehicle washing practices.
Large oil droplets and other solids rise to the surface to form a floating layer of sludge. This can be removed mechanically.
The water moves into a coalescing chamber equipped with specialised media packs to separate oil.
The remaining free-floating oil and smaller suspended solids continue to rise to the surface.
The clarified water, which has undergone multiple stages of separation, exits the oil water separator system through the outlet pipe.
Since 1996, Cleanawater has provided the automotive workshop industry with reliable and innovative wastewater management solutions. We have spent years developing, manufacturing, and optimising specialised oil water separators that address the unique challenges faced by auto workshops.
Whether it’s from an engine or floor washdown or parts and vehicle washing, our oil water separators aim to transform the way your company manages wastewater.
