Oil / Water Separators in Doncaster
When oil, water and the products you create don’t go together, talk to us about the compressed air equipment to keep them separate.
Whether the air from your air compressor is busy sawing, spraying, pumping or cutting, chances are you’ll want it to do its job without contaminating your products or processes with oil and water.
The trouble is, every air compressor generates water as a natural by-product of the compression process. And if your air compressor uses oil as a lubricant (as most do), then oil vapour will also be a natural and unavoidable consequence of using the compressor.
That’s why your Doncaster compressed air system needs an oil/water separator.
Protecting the product. Protecting the compressor
It’s important to remove oil and water from the compressed air you generate for several reasons:
Oil and water vapour can contaminate end products. That may not be a huge issue if you’re using the compressor to inflate car tyres, but it definitely will be a concern if you’re manufacturing food, drink, pharmaceuticals or if you’re paint spraying and want a pristine finish.
Excess moisture within the compressor system can increase wear – so removing it before it has a chance to corrode parts or cause costly breakdowns makes sense.
Meet Condensate Drainage Regulations: Every business needs to meet challenging wastewater obligations – and you can’t meet them unless you’re able to ensure that the water you send to drains is free from oil.
How does a separator work?
Centrifugal force collects about 85% of the oil in your Doncaster compressed air system and drops it into the separator collector. The remainder is caught by the separator filter or filter bag, where fine oil mist gathers as larger droplets which then fall into the separator, leaving only clean water to be piped to your foul drains.
Our separators are available to buy independently as one-off purchases, or as part of a broader compressed air installation package.
