How to Guides and Advice: Industrial Degreasing & Oil Water Separators

Is your wash bay waste water becoming expensive? Meeting wastewater regulations and lowering waste disposal costs requires a detailed understanding of how conventional cleaning and degreasing chemicals work and the way in which they affect oil water separators. Aside from the cost of oil content which is emulsified in wastewater, it is also important to consider the impacts of conventional degreasing chemicals themselves on the environment and worker safety.

Triple7 Quick-Break Degreasers provide a very short lived emulsion to lift and remove grease and oil from all types of surfaces. The emulsion is highly unstable and breaks right at the cleaning surface, which allows oils and greases to rise to the surface immediately, and removes the need for retention time in oil water separators! Now THAT is quick break! Reduces waste water cost, improves waste water system performance, and safer for the environment and your workers.

Wash Bays - How to save big money by reducing oily waste water

27th June 2016 | quick break degreaser, Oily water separation

Using conventional chemicals and degreasers in industrial wash bays creates large volumes of oily waste water that cannot be released down sewers or into water ways. Strict government regulations require the safe removal and disposal of oily waste water from wash bays. This can be very expensive.

Quick Break Degreasers
Safe, Eco-Friendly Heavy Duty Degreaser Technology

1st June 2014 | quick break degreaser, oil water separators

A quick break degreaser is a specially designed surfactant which lifts oil, grease and other hydrocarbon soils from the cleaning surface without forming a permanent emulsion. Once the oil and water has been rinsed away the degreaser rapidly releases the oil again, allowing it to be separated. This leaves behind wastewater containing little or no toxic hydrocarbon content.

The cost impact of effective oil / water separation

1st June 2014 | oil water separation, quick break degreaser, degreaser, case study

For industrial cleaning and degreasing operations, cost effective wastewater management relies on the efficient removal of oils and other hydrocarbons from wastewater prior to its release. This is normally achieved through gravity type oil water separators.
