For Adjustable Oil Level Models

Most likely, the adjustment has been set too high. Re-Adjust the 'T-Bar' as described in the commissioning section of the manual.
Most likely, the adjustment has been set too low. Re-Adjust the 'T-Bar' as described in the commissioning section of the manual.

For all VGS Models

Ensure the back flush valve is not closed. Check there is no build up of sludge within the VGS - if there is then it requires servicing. Refer to maintenance section of the manual.
This occurs when the VGS is not operated frequently as the water can become stagnant. Run fresh water from a hose into the top of the VGS for 5 minutes.
Check the floating swith is operating correctly. If not, then re-adjust the high & low setting of the float. If faulty, contact an electrician to repair or replace. Check the suction line for blockage. If blocked, remove and clean (the holding pit is probably full of silt and requires cleaning). Ensure the pump is working as the overload may have tripped out or the suction line may be cracked. Depending on which, reset the overload on the motor or replace the cracked suction line.

Oil Water Separator Maintenance and Installation

An oil water separator is a device designed to segregate oil and solids from wastewater produced in industrial or commercial processes. Its primary function is to extract oil, solids, hydrocarbons, and sludge from the water, allowing the treated water to be safely discharged without polluting the environment or obstructing drainage systems. Consequently, these separators assist companies in meeting their environmental obligations while also maintaining the efficiency of their drainage infrastructure.

Businesses that need to dispose of contaminated water, such as restaurants, car washes, mechanics, and marine settings with bilge pumps, often utilize oil water separators. These separators are essential to prevent environmental hazards associated with oil contamination. Discharging oil into water bodies can disrupt ecosystems and pose risks to plants, animals, and human health. Furthermore, it can cause pipe blockages and other infrastructure damage. Therefore, using an oil water separator is crucial for businesses to ensure responsible wastewater management and environmental compliance.

Regular servicing by an experienced and certified liquid waste management company, like Allflow Industrial Australia, is essential for maintaining optimal performance and longevity of oil water separators. The quality of maintenance directly impacts the effectiveness of the separator. As an owner and operator of an oil water separator, it's crucial to have a comprehensive plan for disposing of accumulated liquid waste. We can assist with oil water separator installation, providing expertise and guidance throughout the process.
