Oily water is a common waste stream generated by many industries, including oil and gas, marine, and manufacturing. Oily water can contain a range of pollutants, including oil, grease, and other contaminants that can be harmful to the environment and human health.
To ensure compliance with environmental regulations and protect the environment, it is essential to properly treat oily water before discharge. There are several oily water treatment technologies available, including:
- Coalescing technology: Coalescing technology is a widely used oily water treatment technology that works by separating oil droplets from water using gravity. The technology involves passing oily water through a coalescer that contains a series of plates or tubes that encourage the oil droplets to come together and form larger droplets that can be easily removed.
- Membrane technology: Membrane technology is a filtration process that uses a semi-permeable membrane to separate oil and other contaminants from water. The technology is effective for removing both dissolved and suspended contaminants, including oil, grease, and other pollutants.
- Biological treatment: Biological treatment is a natural method of treating oily water that uses bacteria to break down and metabolize the contaminants. The technology involves creating a controlled environment that supports the growth of bacteria, which in turn consume the contaminants and produce harmless byproducts.
- Chemical treatment: Chemical treatment involves adding chemicals, such as coagulants and flocculants, to oily water to separate the oil and other contaminants. The chemicals cause the oil droplets to come together and form larger droplets that can be easily removed.
