Food Processing with API Oil Water Separators
Pan America Environmental, Inc. recently provided three customized API-100-V oil water separator systems to a major international food producer for treating a variety of wastewater from barge wash water to flour settling. The system designs allow the operators to directly reuse the tank volume through flow balancing for site operations where water quality allows water reuse thereby reducing water and peripheral equipment costs.
With floating and sinking solids and oils the API with V-hopper, sludge auger and surface drag skimmer was the perfect solution for a variety of issues. PLC/HMI control for pumps, skimmer with feedback and other devices for DCS tie in completes the package.
