MyCelx Oil Water Separators exhibit excellent removal effectiveness for a wide range of oils and hydrocarbons like crude oils (light and heavy), condensate (from gas production), tar, waxes, asphaltenes, gasoline range and diesel range hydrocarbons, Polyaromatics (PAH) and other associated hydrocarbons, like WSO’s (Water Soluable Organics) from water.
MyCelx systems can achieve oil removal to critically low levels while taking up a fraction of the footprint of conventional filtration trains. MyCelx systems can be standalone units or retrofitted to fit within any part of your current treatment train to help achieve the required level of oil recovery and removal. The MyCelx oil water separators optimises the MyCelx polishing filters operation by removing suspended solids and reducing oil loading.
As an added benefit, MyCelx oil water separators are much lower in cost to operate than conventional systems.
The MyCelx product line is highly customisable with multiple combinations of different types of MyCelx chemistries available to achieve the required oil and grease concentration in water. A MyCelx system does not work under physical gravity separation principles but rather through chemical binding principles.
Because MyCelx uses chemical binding rather than adsorption or physical separation, it is also able to treat much smaller droplet sizes and stronger emulsions than conventional separation methodologies.
