Oil water separators OWS


Condensate treatment

Normally, compressors produce large amounts of condensate that is contaminated with oil. This liquid cannot be disposed untreated by law into the sewage system or the environment. SCC offers the OWS series of oil water separators that remove oil contaminants from the condensate so reliably that the water contains no more than 20 mg / l of hydrocarbons and can therefore be disposed of in the sewage system.
This is not a normal oil water separator: no decantation tank; no external tank to collect oil; simple, fast and effective condensate treatment. The unique advanced design and bag material of high quality assure an extreme level of filtration.

TWIN system

With our unique TWIN system you have the possibility to double or triple the quantity of treated condensate or to improve the quality of drain water. You can expand the system at any time, not only during the first installation. The separator that can work as single or double column.

Operation principal:
o The condensate flows into the separator through a lid depressurisation chamber (LD)
o Then condensate filters down into the separator tank (BD) through the hole in the lid (LD)
o The prefilter (PF) and activated carbon bags (CF) purify the condensate from oil and solid particles
o After this process, the condensate can be drained in sewe compliance with the national laws

Benefits for our customers:

High performance, also works for new synthetic oils for compressors which cannot be separated from condensate by traditional ways, such as decantation

Simplified maintenance and consequent reduction of maintenance costs

Lower concentration of oil, less than 10 ppm/l or lower (by a regular replacement of bags)

Compact dimensions and easy installation

TWIN Solution, the only separator which can work with two or more separators

Ecological and user-friendly material

Depressurisation chamber is removable and directable to allow front or rear connection to drain for an easy installation

Depressurisation chamber containing an activated carbon filter to avoid atmospheric contamination

Heavy-duty Monobloc plastic tank to avoid any leakage

Synthetic pre-filter to assure a long life period and protection to carbon filters

Over-sized activated carbon filter

Warranty: 2 years or 5 years with 
our extended warranty program

Realistic and plannable service costs and no unexpected surprises by unplanned repairs

Data refer to the following nominal conditions

o ambient temperature: +25 °C
o inlet air pressure: 7 bar (g)

Consider oversizing the separators if ambient temperature and humidity are higher than nominal ones. Nominal data considered for screw compressors.
