When water is used in an industrial process for manufacturing, cooling or washing, it often combines with
contaminants (solids, oil, grease, fats, etc.). Before this water can be re-used within your facility or
prepared for discharge into the municipal sewer system, it must first be cleaned of the oil.
The infographic below demonstrates four key areas where
oil skimming can be leveraged in the wastewater treatment process:
Before process water is re-used for an industrial procedure.
Oil skimming can have an immediate and sustained impact on your business. In fact, a Brill® tube-type oil
skimmer can pay for itself within a few months
through process efficiency gains, new revenue streams, and reduced equipment and labor costs.
During many industrial and manufacturing processes, water is
combined with chemicals, oils, grease, fat and other containments.
What is Oil Skimming?
Oil skimming is the process of removing floating waste oil, fat or grease from wastewater. It is the first step in any recovery, recycle or reuse project, and has numerous benefits for the environment, economy, and businesses.
