Sullair announces the availability of its SP Oil/Water Separators, the versatile, high performance filtration units that are designed to control liquid condensate containing oil and various other contaminants created by compressed air systems. The fact is, studies have shown that a typical 1000 cfm compressor with refrigerated dryer can produce over 57,000 gallons of condensate per year. Left unfiltered, this contaminated condensate can cause environmental issues and represents a threat of substantial regulatory penalties and costly, time-consuming remediation.
Engineered as a practical, cost-effective solution for condensate discharge problems, Sullair SP Oil/Water Separators are designed specifically for molecular filtration of condensate, including emulsified lubricants produced by compressed air equipment, where they have a 100% performance guarantee of less than 10 ppm oil carryover. Sullair SP Oil/Water Separators are furnished in three highly efficient, maintenance-free models: SP-25, SP-40 and SP-60. These models range from 20 to 3000 scfm maximum compressor capacity, and provide a working temperature range of 30°F minimum to 155°F maximum. Featuring rugged HDPE construction, Sullair SP Oil/Water Separators are easy to install and are virtually maintenance free.
All SP models contain a high quality media substrate that is formulated to attract and restrain contaminants while repelling water molecules. Unlike gravity-type separators, Sullair SP Oil/Water Separators require no pumps, sensors or pre-separation filter pads. Condensate from the waste stream simply flows through the media bed where lubricants are trapped, and cleansed water flows to the outlet. Fumes, odors and messy element changes are virtually eliminated. When water turns cloudy, or the unit change period is reached, SP unit disposal can be easily arranged through routine waste management pick-up service.
