Separator System - Zeppini Ecoflex

The use of systems for treatment of oily effluents at petrol stations is an important practice to protect the environment, avoiding contamination of soil and groundwater.

The activity is so important that standards from several countries determine the need to use of an Oil and Water Separator System to release the operating licenses of the establishment.

Zeppini Ecoflex offers one of the most traditional systems on the market for this application. Here are the components that are part of this system and the importance of using them:

– Solids Separation Module (Grating): It will retain larger solids that are mixed to the effluent, such as leaves, plastics and stones. The use of this equipment is important as it will facilitate and reduce considerably the need for maintenance in the other modules of the system.

– Oil and Water Separator Box: The main component of the system, where is performed the oil and water separation. It is important to make sure that is being used a quality and efficient equipment in order to ensure that the performance meets the standards required by the local regulations.

– Flowmeter with Sample Collect Module: Important module that has two functions, one of them is to indicate through a scale in its interior that the system is operating with the flow according its project. The other function is to establish a proper environment for the sample collect that will be sent later to the laboratory for analysis.

– Oil Collect Module: Used at the end of the separation process to store safely the oil from the treatment process, so that it can be disposed later.

Zeppini Ecoflex offers Oil and Water Separator Systems in multiple versions, with treatment capacity of 1.000 liters per hour up to 12.000 liters per hour.
