Opticlean Oil / Water Separators

The Need For Opticlean

Oil-injected air compressor condensate is known to contain carryover oil at levels in excess of the allowable amounts or limits in almost all regions of the world. The EPA has strict standards about the disposal of these oils that get mixed with water during the compression process due to concerns about waste water treatment and ground water contamination. The fines for non-compliance can be severe!

Federal regulations restrict contaminants to less than 40 ppm for compressor condensate. However, local codes may be even more strict. Typical compressor condensate has 500-3000 ppm of contaminants. When properly sized and installed, Opticlean can reduce the contaminants in your compressor condensate to less than 10 ppm, for the life of the unit.

The Opticlean system has been designed to provide the most cost-effective means of removing virtually all hydrocarbons through an active filtration process. This approach utilizes a molecular sieve that removes the hydrocarbons from the condensate stream. Utilizing a natural substrate that is modified to create an ionic charge, the system attracts the hydrocarbons to active sites and bonds the hydrocarbons to the natural substrate. This active filtration helps achieve a higher utilization of the media bed providing an industry leading capacitance. Due to the bonding of the hydrocarbons to the substrate, temperature variations and vibration will not dislodge the hydrocarbons from the substrate.
