Baldwin RM-10 is a unique, one step process for difficult to treat wastewater. As an OSU (Oil Separation Unit) for Compressor Stations it is highly efficient and effective.

Food Processing

The bentonite clay based chemical removes oils and greases, suspended solids, heavy metals, surfactants and permanently encapsulates these contaminants in a readily disposable dry sludge.

Over the last 20 years in Australia this technology has been used to treat wastewater from processes that include – paint wash water, compressor wastewater, mining workshops, mining wash bays, metal component manufacturing, food processing and many other industrial waste streams.

PLC controlled and requiring minimal operator involvement, a Baldwin OSU will treat 24 hours per day if required. Each unit is customised to meet the specific application requirements. Flow rates of standard units vary from 1,000 litres per hour up to 6,000 litres per hour. Custom designed systems have been installed with the ability to treat up to 12,000 litres per hour.

FLOW RATE CAPACITY upto 12000 litres/hour

What are Oil Water Separators?

An oil water separator is a wastewater treatment equipment. Oils, grease, and hydrocarbons are removed, leaving only non-hazardous water. The wastewater can subsequently be properly disposed of in the drainage system.

Oil water separators come in a variety of shapes and sizes, each with its own set of capabilities. They are used in a variety of commercial and industrial settings. They also treat free-floating oil, emulsified oil, dissolved oil, and suspended particles, which are all pollutants present in water.

When do you need an oil water separator?

Using an oil water separator will be a critical aspect of many Australian enterprises’ compliance with local water authority regulations. If your organisation isn’t in compliance, you risk facing severe penalties or having your operations stopped until you are compliant.

You will need an oil water separator if you:

  • Produced wastewater as a byproduct of typical operations.
  • Dispose of the wastewater in public sewers.
  • Must achieve water authority compliance
What are the advantages of the Speciality chemical treatment with RM-10/OSU

Safe & Simple
Chemical handling and storage facilities are minimised; only one non-toxic chemical is required as opposed to three or more using conventional wastewater treatment.

Sludge Disposal
The micro-encapsulation process, in most cases, creates a sludge that is non-leachable and can be disposed of directly at a non-hazardous landfill. Sludge volumes are minimised as the clay base retains no chemically held water.

Efficient and economical treatment
Treatment rates range from 1000 litres per hour up to 10,000 litres per hour and can continually treat without operator attention 24 hours a day.

How do I know if a Specialty treatment with RM-10 Oil Separation Unit is right for my operation?

This is dependent on a number of variables, including budget, location, flow rates, and the composition of wastewater. Get in touch with us at (02) 4954 0440 and we will advise you on the best system for you.
