Primary Treatment

The VTC removes hydrocarbons and settleable solids from industrial wastewater and coolant.

In operation, this separator accepts industrial liquid waste in the inlet chamber. Here settleable solids fall to the bottom as sludge for periodic removal.

Then the waste stream enters the coalescing separation chamber. A matrix of vertically-postioned polypropylene tubes gives laminar flow characteristics to the liquid. The result is a liquid more responsive to gravity separation.

The tubes also provide a coalescing medium. Oleophilic in nature, they attract small oil globules which coalesce with other globules, increase in size and buoyancy, then break away to rise through the tubes to the top. Surface oil drains by gravity into a rotary pipe skimmer for discharge to a storage facility.

Performance that can be expected of the VTC separator is:

  1. Removal of oil globules down to 20-micron size
  2. Reduction of oil content to 10mg/ltr

The VTC removes even non-permanent mechanically emulsified oil. It leaves no visible sheen and traps solids too. In metalworking and similar applications, it removes more than 99% of tramp oils from coolants.

The VTC incorporates a molded fiberglass construction. Internally reinforced, the structure withstands severe soil and hydraulic loadings.

The entire exterior surface is covered with corrosion-resistant gelcoat, integrally-colored and ultra-violet resistant. Since the envelope and fittings are corrosion-resistant, the separator can be installed in many hostile environments. No sacrificial protection required.

Equipment and construction options are available please see the optional equipment section in the lower left hand corner.
