Ultraspin is the preferred and trusted oily water treatment solutions supplier to major mining companies in both greenfield mines and brownfield sites in South Africa, Australia and worldwide. We’ve supplied over 350 oil/water separators to premium South African mining companies, such as Exxaro, Sibanye Stillwater, Anglo and South 32.
Tough, robust and built to last, Ultraspin separators are a powerful ally in wastewater treatment in Southern Africa
As the worldwide mining landscape ebbs and flows, Ultraspin works with you to develop new mine site design, or find the best solution for mine site upgrades to ensure full compliance.
A number of independent sources show that the Ultraspin centrifugal oil-water separator is fundamentally more powerful than gravity, coalescing plate pack type or VGS systems.
In addition, if you are using coalescing plate pack type oil water separators, you probably know by now that at some point this method of oil separation fails to be effective. It is costly, and requires continual maintenance. With an Ultraspin oily water separator, you can relax. Our separator required no maintenance or cleaning to maintain full oil separation performance.
We offer oily water treatment solutions to all areas of the oil and gas industry
Oil-contaminated water occurs in all parts of the oil and gas industry – from exploration, then production, refining, petrochemical, fuel distribution, depots and terminals, and finally at direct industry outlets such as petrol stations, gas stations and hundreds of types of industrial re-fuelling sites.
My workshop wastewater has a lot of oils and grease – why do I need to treat it?
Removing sediment, oils and grease is an important factor in meeting discharge regulations.
There is no doubt that a workshop generates some of the toughest wastewater to treat. A workshop can exist in a variety of locations, from the local car mechanic, to rail and marine operations, to mine sites.
High-powered vehicle wash oily wastewater treatment for re-use or discharge.
Oily water is pumped into a precisely engineered tapered pipe, creating a vortex generating 1 000 times the force of gravity. Under such force, the heavier water is pushed to the outer edge of the vortex and discharged from the smaller end, while the lighter fats, oils and grease moves to the centre of the vortex and are discharged at the inlet end.
How will the Ultraspin system improve my oily water discharge?
Effective oil separation will improve your trade waste compliance
Out-dated oily water separator systems may no longer be able to meet regulations regarding water discharge, and will need to be replaced.
My power generation equipment creates oily water – what do I do with it?
Bunded oily water is easily treated with an Ultraspin oily water separator system.
A typical power generation site or substation will have a bank of generators and transformers that need maintenance in situ, creating sources of oily wastewater.
Whatever the source of power, there will be bunded oily water.
Ultraspin has been supplying oily water treatment solutions to aluminium billet facilities in Australia, South Africa and around the world for more than 20 years.
How does oil water treatment improve my aluminium billet process? By improving the water quality for re-use through the cooling tower.
Treating the oily water at the hot well stage removes oils and emulsifiers before they enter the cooling tower, enabling the water to be re-used again and again.
