Our separators are designed to remove oil, grease, light petroleum
products, and oily coated solids from a variety of wastewater discharges. They are typically
installed in industrial areas and receive oily wastewater generated during processes such as bulk petroleum storage and handling, aircraft and vehicle fueling, maintenance, washing, and environmental remediation of petroleum contaminated sites. The effluent from oil/water separators
is typically discharged to either a storm or sanitary sewer system.
Highland separators can be designed to handle high flow rates and remove oils with a specific gravity up to .95. API-421 design criteria can be employed to engineer a separator to the specified wastewater flow rate, temperature, oil globule size, and specific gravity of oil and wastewater.
Effluent quality down to 10 ppm has been consistentlydemonstrated on our high performance
Model HTC UL-SU2215 labeled oil/water separators.
