If treated in the right way, condensate is nothing to worry about. The Atlas Copco range of condensate separators efficiently separate the oil from the water. The harmless water can be drained away and the oil disposed of in an environment-friendly manner. Based on our years of experience with air treatment products, we suggest only the equipment that is right for your setup.
The unique OSD offers a condensate treatment package fully integrated into the compressor, reducing both installation costs and complexity. Clean water is discharged from the compressor outlet drain valves whilst the separated oil is collected in a generously sized oil can. 4 The new patented OSC technology brings a whole series of new advantages to the market. These free standing units, with multi-stage oleophilic filtration, can separate all kinds of condensate from all compressor technologies, giving unparalleled performance and reliability for minimal maintenance.
As efficient as the process may be, a compressor inevitably produces more than compressed air alone. One of its by-products is a large volume of condensate, generally an emulsified combination of oil and water that poses a serious environmental risk. Only by treating this condensate in the right way, can we make sure it brings no harm to the environment.
