Compressed air contains water vapour and when the air cools it condenses out as liquid water. Mixed with oil carryover from the compressor and what is coalesced out within filtration systems becomes a contaminated oil/water emulsion mixture. You cannot discharge this to normal drainage and the condensate needs to be managed efficiently and with environmental awareness and within legal requirements for discharge.
Oil - Water Separators
IATT offer a range of Oil-Water Separator units offer a uniquely designed range for Compressed Air Condensate Management, avoiding the problematic weir system most other units employ.
The Oil-Water Separator unit does not have a settlement tank or separate oil container. The waste oil is trapped in the filters, this ensures quick and easy handling, simple change of filters, with no oil tank to empty. The design can be connected to any type of drain, making the installation quick and low cost.
The filters are made from predominately recycled materials with an oil carryover at end of life of only 20 ppm.
Benefits of Oil - Water Separators
The range of Oil - Water Separators offers three sizes to suit just about all compressed air applications up to 17,000 nm3/hr (10,000 scfm).
IATT supply, install and service Oil-Water Separators units using our dedicated team of factory trained engineers strategically located throughout the UK.
