Quarantine Oil Water Separators

For effective wastewater management in quarantine areas

Key wastewater challenges for the quarantine industry

  • The industry deals with hazardous substances, including oils, chemicals, and pollutants.
  • Strict regulations govern the discharge of wastewater from quarantine facilities.
  • Quarantine facilities often handle materials that can be harmful to aquatic life.
  • Cross-contamination between different types of waste is common.
  • Water sustainability can be costly for quarantine facilities.
  • Oil can harm other equipment, such as filters and treatment systems.

Industry overview - managing oil discharge in quarantine facilities

An oil water separator serves as a critical wastewater treatment system within the quarantine industry, playing a pivotal role in effectively removing oils, chemicals, and contaminants from quarantine facility wastewater before its discharge.

As a result, this safeguards environmental integrity, ensuring regulatory compliance and preventing the pollution of water bodies and ecosystems.

With capacities ranging from 1,000L to 5,000L nominal flow rate per hour, we guarantee you’ll find a wastewater management system that optimises and streamlines your water discharge practices.

Understanding the oil water separation process

Step 1


Pre-treatment involves oily water from quarantine facilities entering the separator.

Step 2

Primary separation

Large oil droplets rise to the surface to form a floating layer of sludge. The contaminated liquid can then be mechanically removed.

Step 3


The water moves into a coalescing chamber equipped with specialised media packs that aid in oil removal.

Step 4

Secondary separation

The remaining oil and suspended solids continue to rise to the surface.

Step 5


The clarified water from the oil water separator system can be discharged appropriately as it now meets authority regulations.

 Note that additional water treatment measures, such as the inclusion of a quarantine screen filter, may be necessary to comply with quarantine standards.
