Oil water separators are designed to be simple yet efficient tools which separate and capture oil and other contaminants from wastewater.
An increase in society’s environmental awareness has developed through technological advancement and our evolved social conscience, leading to the use of oil and water separators in a variety of contexts in which grease and suspended solids can be found.
No longer are oil separators limited to industrial uses in mines, petrol stations and treatment plants. Oil water separators are also widely employed in situations such as:
- mining workshops
- mining wash bays
- petroleum refineries
- service stations
- petroleum depots
- power stations
- oil and gas stormwater treatment
- tank farms
- bund water treatment
- railway workshops
- railway wash bays
- mechanical workshops.
Businesses of all sizes are adopting their use in their effort to contribute to the preservation and sustainability of our planet, by engaging in effective oil and water separation practices.

Having decades of experience within the industry, we know that the coalescing plates found within the separator play an important part in oil separation, carrying out the bulk of the oil and water segregation. For this reason it is critical to choose a separator that is based on a scientifically proven performance calculation and a known plate surface area.
We have designed and manufactured the products in our oil water separator range with flow rate capacities ranging from 1,000 litres per hour to over 500,000 litres per hour, based on our proprietary knowledge.
