Oil water separator waste management

Waste oil water separators are used to separate oil and water with the water being treated for discharge into sewers. Most machines operate by separating oil and water based on the principle of gravity displacement, utilising gravity plates, centrifugal force, floatation, hydrocyclone and other methods.

Oil and water separators are used in various industries, from crude oil production to vegetable and mineral oil manufacturing. They are also used on ships to prevent oil and other contaminants from reaching the ocean.

Regular oil water separator waste management includes servicing your tank every three to six months, depending on type and volume. This usually involves removing accumulated waste from the tank, followed by a deep service clean, if required. Depending on your location and industry, your waste oil water separator tank may also be regulated by water authorities, making regular service essential.

Businesses that use oil water separators include:

  • Automotive workshops
  • Car washes
  • Marine ships
  • Mining
  • Food manufacturing businesses

Oil and water separator waste disposal

In general, there are three components to oil and water separator waste: oil, water, and solids, which are usually separated by their respective densities. Depending on the machine, the water can be treated and then reused in the separator, while the sludge may be repurposed into beneficial soil conditioners. The oil may be sent to a refinery facility to be re-refined into new lubricating and fuel oils.

Cleanaway’s team of inhouse experts and specialist fleet of trucks can help you manage your oil water separator tank waste disposal, maximising resource recovery while helping you close the loop on waste.
