Oil Water Separator Market Future Growth Opportunities by 2025

Transparency Market Research has released a new market report entitled “Oil Water Separator Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast 2017 - 2025” on to their report store.


Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/11/2017 -- Oil water separator is a device used to eliminate small amounts of oil and other petroleum products from industrial wastewater and/or storm water systems. In practice, it is impossible to avoid oil spills into watercourses. A modern and effective oil separation technology is required to prevent the pollution of the environment. Discharging oil contaminated condensate from compressed air systems is not only harmful to the environment, but is also illegal. One liter of oil can cover 3500 square meter of water surface. One gallon of oil can cover four acres of water surface.

Compressed air systems contain water, dirt, rust, and even degraded lubricating oil. These mix together to form unwanted compressed air condensate. This abrasive sludge collects in piping systems, filters, aftercoolers, and dryers. They need to be efficiently removed to avoid any disruption in the production process.

Oil can adversely affect the efficient operation of sewage purification by obstructing oxygen transfer to the bacteria essential for sludge digestion. Very low industrial discharge limits are permitted considering the adverse effects oil can create. Rigid legislation exists in most countries to protect the environment against contamination. Most users of compressed air systems are unaware of exactly how much condensate is produced by their system each year, and the devastating effect it can have on the environment. In the past, legal requirements have compelled compressed air users to remove oily condensate. However, the costs incurred for this process are significant.

After the oily condensate has been efficiently removed from the compressed air system, it cannot be discharged directly to the foul sewer; the oil content has to be reduced to be within the legal disposal limits. For this, the simple, economical, and environmental solution is oil water separator. Oil water separators are installed as part of the purification system and simply reduce the oil concentration in the collected condensate. Reduction of the oil concentration in water to a permitted level allows the larger volume of clean water, i.e., up to 99.9% of the total condensate, to be discharged safely into the foul sewer. This leaves the relatively small amount of concentrated oil to be disposed of legitimately and economically.

Most compressed air condensates are a simple mixture of oil and water. Left over a period of time, the oil and water separates naturally, as the oil, which has lower density, rises to the surface of the water. In certain instances, the condensate forms a stable emulsion. A stable emulsion does not separate over time; thus, oil water separators are used for these applications. National and International regulatory agency guidelines are increasingly stringent when dealing with oil discharge limits. This is driving the need for efficient, cost effective, oil/water separation technologies. However, higher maintenance cost associated with oil water separator may hamper the market growth.

Based on technology, the oil water separator market can be segmented into gravity oil/water separators and coalescing oil water separators. In terms of application, the oil water separator market can be divided into wastewater treatment, aerospace & defense, automotive, industrial, and others. In terms of region, the oil water separator market in North America is expected to witness substantial growth due to the effective use of oil filtration technology in various end-user industries in the region.

Key players operating in the oil water separator market include Parker Hannifin, ENEKA, Taiko Kikai Industries Co.,Ltd., Sepura, and Pollution Control Systems Inc.
