Treating oil-contaminated waste can be a real… treat! And with continuously changing waste streams the ‘perfect solution’ can be difficult to find.
We regularly have people contacting us to ask what the most efficient process is to treat oil-contaminated waste. With oil waste, as I am sure you know, there is no “one size fits all’ but we have experienced some very effective processes in our time. Let me share a little of that experience with you by walking you through one process we have seen work very effectively in the past:
Pump the waste from your storage tank (http://www.gnsolidsamerica.com/
The mixture is then fed through the centrifuge.
The solids separate from the liquid and fall out the bottom of the centrifuge (https://en.wikipedia.org/
The liquid, which will contain oil, water and some chemical, is then pumped to a settling tank.
Here the water and oil separate under gravity, a process which is accelerated and enhanced by the SAS chemicals.
Now SAS is partnering with GN Solids Control (http://www.gnsolidsamerica.com/
