All compressed air systems contain water, dirt, rust and even degraded lubricating oil which all mix together to form unwanted compressed air condensate.
This condensate should be treated and have the oil removed before discharging to a sanitary sewer, unless lubricant is biodegradable. Oil/water separators are installed as part of the compressed air system and simply reduce the oil concentration in the collected condensate. By reducing oil concentration in water to a permitted level, this allows the larger volume of clean water, up to 98% of the total condensate, to be discharged safely into the sanitary sewer. This leaves the relatively small amount of concentrated oil to be disposed of legitimately and economically
Ingersoll Rand oil water separators and drain valves help make condensate management easier, more efficient and more environmentally friendly.
