Oil plays a part in just about every industrial process on
earth. While oil can play crucial and beneficial role in industrial operations, it can also cause
many challenges once it has served its purpose and ends up in the wastewater stream.
To increase the efficiency of wastewater treatment processes and maintain environmental compliance, organizations must first remove the oil
before repurposing it or the water, before discharging water to the municipality, and before...
Many industrial and manufacturing processes require the use of
After all, coolant plays a critical role in both lubrication and temperature regulation. It’s vital in
metalworking, machining and many other industrial processes—any that use or create heat.
From cutting, grinding and machining oil-coated metal parts, and because CNC machining centers leak
hydraulic oil, coolant quickly picks up tramp oil, particulate matter and other impurities,
mandating regular upkeep. Coolant often contains oil as an ingredient,...
Recognizing the limitations of belt skimmers and other oil
removal methods, 50 years ago we invented the “better belt skimmer”, the Brill® tube type oil skimmer.
Choosing Which Belt Skimmers are Best: Traditional vs Better Belt Skimmer
Using the right type of oil skimmer can be just as important as deciding to skim oil in the first place. Whether
your business is considering a new skimming solution or has traditional belt skimmers in operation already,
it’s important to...
Similarly, in most, if not all of those same industries, oil
plays some kind of role. It may be lubrication oil, fuel oil, or the process itself may consume or
produce oil—such as in chemical plants and oil...
water is a byproduct of oil and natural gas extraction. Typically, the salt water contains residual
oil. For companies involved in the disposal of salt water, removing the residual oil from the water offers
potentially significant economic benefit.
One salt water disposal facility successfully used a Model 6V Brill® oil skimmer with the
free floating collector tube, from Oil Skimmers, Inc. to remove oil from its disposal pit. The Model 6V
performed flawlessly and...
