The AWS Oily Waste Polisher is designed for use after an Oil/Water Separator, but can be used as a stand-alone. It is a barrier against oil and other hydrocarbons remaining in wastewater.

Filters are also available for purchase separately

Once wastewater has run through an oil-water separator (OWS), that wastewater still needs to be polished. This process completely removes or reduces the size of oil droplets. Our Oily Waste Polisher (OWP) functions as a flooded housing trickle-down unit. The filters within it pull hydrocarbons from wastewater. Users can use the Oily Water Polisher as a stand-alone oily waste water filtration unit.

The housing contains nine filter canisters in parallel or series configuration. It is ready to install when we ship it. Canisters are easy to change via three hatch covers on top of the polisher housing. You can also buy replacement canisters as a stand-alone.
