API Oily Water Separators and CPI – Corrugated Plate Interceptor – allow the separation in the oily water treatment of the suspended solids and of the oil globules from water by gravity separation principle that is based on the difference of specific gravity between the phases (oil, solid, water). API and CPI are often used for a preliminary water treatment in order to process the waste water before the flotators (Tecniplant’s IGF Units).
API and CPI separators can be supplied as a complete package (metallic basin with instrumentation, ancillaries and automation). The CPI separators can be supplied in pressurized design (U-STAMP, PED)
