Ecodrain LS Series
Condensate is the liquid formed from water vapour in the air as a result of a drop in temperature and/or an increase in pressure. This liquid water mixes with atmospheric hydrocarbon contaminants as well as oil carried over from lubricated compressors to form an acidic oily sludge. A 1000 SCFM compressor operating at 100 PSIG, in 20°C (68°F), 65% RH environment can produce up to 58,000 gallons (219,000 L) of oil contaminated condensate per year.
Compressed air condensate usually contains far more than 20 mg/L of oil. There are two possibilities. One can have the condensate taken away by a special waste disposal firm at a considerable cost. Alternatively, one can process the condensate on site by separating the oil and the water. Zander's Ecosep oil-water separators offer compressed air users a simple and economical solution to achieve an oil content in water of 10 mg/L or less, which can be safely discharged into an effluent system.
Standard features and benefits
• No external power required.
• Remote overflow alarm connection.
PAO = polyalphaolefins, TMP = trimethylolpropane ester, PE = pentaerythrityl ester, PAG = polyoxyalkylene glycol.
The above values are not applicable for polyglycol lubricants or ATF (Automatic Transmission Fluid). The sizing guidelines are based upon an ambient inlet temperature to the compressor of 70°F (20°C) and a relative humidity of 65%. For all other operating conditions use the correction factor tables below to properly size the separator.
