Screw Centrifugal Pumps Transfer Oily Water without Emulsification

Gentle Transfer of Oily Water Water Mix without Emulsifying

Hidrostal Screw Centrifugal Pump for Oily WaterOily water clean up is usually done using gravity feed because most pumps will emulsify the fluid. Hidrostal Screw Centrifugal Pumps gently pump the fluids. This allows oil water separation at a faster rate than gravity feed systems, as well as providing greater flexibility in system design.

Hidrostal Pumps Put to the Test in Oil Separation

In extensive laboratory tests by market leaders in separating plants, the impact of Hidrostal pumps on emulsion formation and thus on maintenance of the separation performance was investigated in detail.

In this experimental setup, a Hidrostal screw impeller centrifugal pump was compared with a conventional multi-vane standard chemical pump. The experiments were carried out with identical speeds and hydraulic characteristics with identical speeds at the same operating points. In the experiment, the oil droplet size was measured both at the pump inlet and at the pump outlet with a laser diffraction particle size analyzer.
