Modern’s Kleerwater™ High Efficiency
Oil Water Separators
Patent No. 5,229,015
Kleerwater™ Gravity Displacement Oil Water
- Kleerwater™ oil water separators may be
constructed in single or double wall tank designs. Double
wall configurations have interstitial monitoring
capabilities. Separator material of construction is
carbon steel or in special applications, stainless
- Tanks are built to Underwriters Laboratories UL-58 /
UL-1746 construction standards. Kleerwater™ oil water
separators are tested to Underwriters Laboratories,
- Separators are designed to separator free-floating
oils and greases with specific gravities between 0.7 and
0.94, from fresh water influents.
- Kleerwater™ separator design criteria is based on
Stokes Law which defines the rates of rise of oil spheres
in a liquid medium. Special coalescence media enhances
the separators efficiency to obtain unmatched
performance, down to 5 ppm. (See note 1 below) Efficiency Verification
- Kleerwater™ can handle larger continuous or
intermittent influent flow rates. This allows for smaller
separator system tanks. With smaller separation tanks,
there is less spent on installation and equipment costs.
- Kleerwater separators are designed for no internal or
confined space entry when performing routine maintenance.
(See note 2 below)
- Kleerwater™ separators are available with
electronic audible and visual alarms for preset
notification of liquid levels in the separator.
- Kleerwater™ oil water separators are not for use in
applications where cleaning detergents are involved.
Solvents or highly dissolved solids, such as untreated
sanitary sewers, should not be introduced into
- – Efficiencies are dependent on influent flow
rates, concentrations and specific gravity of oil. Any
one of these factors can affect the separator's
efficiencies of oil and water separation.
- – Maximum 180 day maintenance inspection schedule
must be implemented for this claim to be applicable.
Follow published maintenance instructions as published by
the Kleerwater™ oil water separator manufacturer.
Kleerwater™ separators will not separate chemical
emulsions, dissolved hydrocarbons or volatile organic
