Ultraspin Overview

We provide:

•    Innovative hydrocyclone oil separator technology for removing oils, greases and fats from water
•    A powerful oil separator package that removes emulsified oil droplets as small as 10 microns to achieve your discharge requirements
•    A low cost and low maintenance alternative to a traditional oil separator such as coalescing plate separators, gravity interceptors and DAFs
•    Off the shelf or customised oil separator solutions to meet your specific needs
•    Dedicated After Sales and Spare Parts Support

How do the Ultraspin Oil Water Separators work?

Like many oily water separators, the Ultraspin system separates the oil/fat and the water based on the density difference – the oil/fat droplets being lighter than the water. To do this the oily wastewater is pumped tangentially into the separator which forms a powerful vortex and huge centrifugal forces. This squeezes the lighter oil/fat droplets into the center of the vortex. Two streams are generated: treated water ready for discharge or reuse, and the separated oil for storage and disposal.
The centrifugal separation force generated is over 1000 times the force of gravity!
Separates emulsified oil droplets as small as 10 microns!
The Ultraspin separator is one of the simplest and most powerful oil water separators available. And all with no consumables and no chemicals!

Oil Skimmers

The Ultraspin oil skimmer is an important part of many of our oil water separators. Why do we like them so much?
•    Greatly improve the overall water discharge quality
•    Minimise the risk of oil spills if the pit floods (no oil on top to overflow)
•    Reduces flammable risk – no oil on top to catch fire
•    Less pit pump-outs when no oil gets built up
•    Eliminates nasty odours

Our skimmers are floating self-adjusting weir style which means if there are fluctuations in water flow or the skimmer tilts, it will adjust itself automatically and operate as normal. Find out more by visiting our Skimmer page
Strainers – bigger is better

Our systems include very large, high capacity easy clean strainers. 30 years experience tells us a strainer is essential for protecting the pump and other equipment from wear and damage. All kinds of debris collects in an oily water pits; leaves and twigs, cigarette butts, feathers, food packets, cable ties, even beetles and other insects!
Our customers really like our large strainers – its a great advantage of our systems. Particularly as most competitor oil water separators do not come with a strainer at all, meaning their equipment gets damaged quickly – forcing downtime and requiring costly spare parts.
Ultraspin strainers are designed with the operator in mind:
•    Large capacity – reduce the frequency of emptying and monitoring
•    Quick and easy to clean
•    No heavy lifting or bending over, can be cleaned by one person without any special tools
•    Robust perforated stainless steel (not mesh) so debris doesn’t get stuck or damage the strainer

Clever Controls

We provide pneumatic and electric control systems that can be manual or fully automatic. We also include additional control features for some customers such as:

Start up Recycle: Allows the removal of thick oil layers before treating and discharging water; Multiple treatment of water to increase overall oil separation efficiency when oil droplets are very small or higher water quality discharge is required.
Aeration – Water Polishing

Aerating water is a common and well-established water treatment method. It serves as a simple cost effective way to treat a wide range of contaminants which cannot be physically separated. If you have strict discharge requirements then an Aeration tank is a good way to ensure you are consistently compliant. Aeration works by releasing contaminants from the water into the air or converting contaminants into a form which can be discharged.

Low Shear Pumps

Pumps are a very important part of an oil water separator and we are very fussy about pump selection. A poor pump can be very detrimental to the performance of an oil water separator. By using our oil droplet particle sizer we quickly identify pumps that ‘shear’ or chop up the oil droplets, emulsifying the oily water, and making oil separation more difficult. Most vendors don’t have equipment to measure oil droplet particle size and therefore often select pumps purely on cost. This results in poor oil water separator performance and a costly mistake for their customers.
At Ultraspin we design, select and performance test (with one of our oil droplet size tools) all our pumps to make sure that they are gentle on the oily water and give the very best possible oil water discharge quality. Its one of the many reasons our systems work so well. With this philosophy we are able to offer pneumatic and electric pumps to suit your application. Different materials are also available to suit the application.
