Tackling Oil Recovery Problems
Machine shops, steel mills, industrial manufacturers, waste water plants, the food processing industry and many others have to remove oils from coolants and wastewater on a daily basis. Removing oil from water or coolant reduces disposal and liability costs. If oil remains in a coolant tank anaerobic bacteria, which break down the coolant’s components, can grow. When that happens the coolant needs to be changed more often.
Why Do Oil Skimmers Work
Oil skimmers are devices which recover oil from the water’s surface. They exploit the fact that water and oil do not mix. Even if you tired to mix oil and water together they still separate. The oil always floats to the top because it is less dense than water. Oil and water do not mix because water molecules are more attracted to each other than to oil molecules.
