How to Use an Efficient Tramp Oil Skimmer to Remove Tramp Oils

At EdjeTech, we offer a water separation and tramp oil skimmer system that removes free-floating, mechanically disseminated oil in addition to suspended solids from tainted fluid. Our tramp oil separator system operates efficiently through the process described below.

Floating Skimmer Operation

Our T.O.S.S. floating skimmer is installed in a reservoir that is filled with contaminated fluid. Adjustments are made to the skimmer in order to skim the reservoir’s surface and drawing is the floating free-oils on the surface. The skimmer also draws in fluid underneath the surface where suspended solids and mechanically dispersed oil are present.

Supply Pump to the Bag Filter

The contaminated fluid is drawn through the skimmer by the means of a separator supply pump by which it is also discharged into a bag filter in the separator. As the fluid is filtered through the bag, suspended solids are removed. It continues to flow under the tramp oil discharge trough until it arrives into very efficient coalescing media.

High Separation Efficiency

The media consists of cubes of one cubic foot in size and 132 square feet of surface area. The 99 percent separation efficiency of 20-micron oil droplets are made possible by the large surface area. The efficiency of the tramp oil separator depends on the amount of area the tramp coolants must flow through. From the coalescing media flows clarified fluid into the clean fluid chamber which is then released from the separator by means of an adjustable overflow weir and then typically transported back into the reservoir.

The media surface removes the free oils to the top of the tank. They then flow into the tramp oil removal trough and are eventually drained out of the system via gravity into a holding container provided by the client (i.e. 55-gallon drum, 5-gallon pail).

Easy to Operate

The tramp oil skimmer and water separator system we provide is designed in an operator friendly manner without the need to have personnel who are highly technical trained operating and maintaining the system. The system consists of an oil water separation unit, floating skimmer, and air or electric pump.

The operator of the system is only required to place the T.O.S.S. clean fluid return line and floating skimmer in the fluid reservoir. After the pump starts operating, the T.O.S.S. takes care of the rest of the operation.
