The Friess Oil Separator is used wherever tramp oil mixes with the process liquid instead of floating on the surface. A positive displacement pump is used to pump liquid containing tramp oil from the tank into the Skimmtelligent Mini.
The liquid is pumped into the separator tank of the Skimmtelligent Mini. In the process, the liquid mixed with tramp oil flows through inclined coalescing plates. Even the slight buoyancy of small oil droplets is sufficient to cause them to rise to the underside of the next inclined plate. There, the many small oil droplets join together and can rise to the liquid surface with now increased buoyancy. The oil layer thus formed flows over a height-adjustable overflow edge into a Separator Container.
As a final result, tramp oil collects in a chamber, while the cleaned liquid flows back into the tank.
Optionally, a Friess Magnetic Filter can be integrated. This can additionally filter out ferritic particles down to a size of about 1 µm from the fluid.
