Industry overview - managing oil in car washes
An oil water separator is a system used in car wash operations to effectively remove oils, greases, and other pollutants from the wash water, ensuring compliance with environmental regulations, preventing water pollution, and maintaining the quality of water discharged from the car wash facility.
By implementing Cleanawater's innovative oil water separator technology, your car wash business can not only mitigate water pollution risks but also reduce its environmental footprint, enhance its public image, and achieve significant cost savings through responsible water management practices.

The contaminated water mixture enters the oil water separator.
Non-emulsified oil droplets and other chemicals rise to the surface, which are mechanically removed.
The water moves into a coalescing chamber system which can separate oil from water.
The remaining free-floating oil and smaller suspended solids rise to the surface.
The clean water, which has undergone multiple stages of separation, exits the oil water separator system into the water flow.
