Overview

Credit: 1 PDH

Length: 16 pages

The quantity of oil allowed in the effluent water from refineries, industrial plants, airports, and other facilities is governed by the Clean Water Act. The Clean Water Act requires that there be no sheen on the outlet water.

Numerous systems are available for removing this oil from water, among the most common are API separators, API type separators, and coalescing plate separators.

In this course, the student will learn about these various oil-water separators and the effectiveness of each in meeting effluent discharge requirements.
