Below Ground Oil Water Separators
Available from Hydro Quip, Inc.
Hydro Quip’s design meets and exceeds API 421, which is based on Stokes Law. However, API does NOT address the importance of a Reynolds Number. Since Stokes Law is based on zero velocity, a low Reynolds Number is required to achieve the rise times of the oil for better separation. We use the flow rate, temperature, type of product and particle size to achieve superior performance results. Design calculations can be provided which indicate that at the calculated overflow rate, the oil water separator is equipped with the required projected plate surface area to achieve the specified performance under laminar flow conditions. All calculations can be provided by a registered professional engineer.
