Primary Sludge Separation & Processing
Primary Separation is the first stage of separation. It aims a facilitating the separation of components like hydrocarbons, water and solids while it collects each of these components for further specialized processing. Traditional Primary Separation has coalescing type separation complex designed in compliance with API separation requirements.
Our Complex Benefits:
Gravity Oil/Water/Solids Separator;
Focculant6 to enhance Solids Separation
GreenZyme® Hydrocarbon Polishing Unit
Centrifugal Solids Separator; Clarifier
Sludge is now separated into Hydrocarbons, Water and Solids. We can now specialize the preocessing for each components with further stages.
Oil is Collected $. Hydrocarbons will be further Polished in the GreenZyme Polishing Unit to achieve low water in oil.
Fuel Oil/Marine Diesel $. Light solvent fuels used in hot oil tank cleaning of hard bitumen will be collected as a mix by the complex and can then be recovered as Bunker Grade Fuel with low water content using the Polishing Unit.
Water Treatment: is separated and sent to Secondary Separation Unit for additional clean up treatment for reuse or further purification and discharge.
Hydrocarbon Contaminated Solids: are concentrated and removed. When using Floc 6, the flocculant action will also bind to PAHs and concentrate this and other contaminants like metals. Having this amount of contaminants requires thoughtful containment or further decontamination.
