Media Pack


The Pan America Environmental MP (Media Pack) series is a family of Flopak based coalescing media systems for existing steel, prefabricated on site and/or precast concrete oil water separators for above grade or below grade designs that can be applied to many applications where oils, fuels, solids and many petroleum derived products are present. The TPi is designed for high solids applications.


  • Proven traditional design for reliability
  • Flow rates from 5 to 250,000 GPM
  • Construction:  304/316 SS, PVC, Polypropylene (media pack frame & media)
  • Many possible integrated options
  • Variety of plate spacings and construction
  • Highly customizable design

Process Overview

The MP design is most commonly used wherever oils, fuels and solids can come into contact with a wastestream.

How It Works

The MP places a volume of corrugated Flopak coalescing media into the waste stream, the tank’s flow path brings the oils and solids bearing water to the influent end of the plate pack, it flows horizontally through the pack where oils then encounter the plate surface and are effectively seprated from the water, the oil droplets roll up the plate surface begin to coalesce into larger droplets. Then, the larger droplets increased bouyancy pulls the oils away from the surface rising to the water surface. Solids perform the reverse and drop into the sludge hopper bottom.
