The HUF series of Ultrafilters are capable of disposing 60 to 1000 gallons of wastewater per day. Oily wastewater generated by Vehicle and Equipment Washing, Parts Washers, Dip Tanks, Machine Coolant, Vibratory waste and other forms of industrial wastewater are candidates for an HUF system.
Our systems can reclaim up to 98% of the water in the oily wastewater stream. In most cases the water can be legally discharged or re-used in the process.

PRINCIPLES OF ULTRAFILTRATION
In the Ultrafiltration (UF) process, wastewater containing emulsified oils is pumped through a membrane unit. Water and some dissolved low molecular weight materials pass through the membrane pores and exit the system as permeate. Emulsified oil and any suspended solids are retained by the membrane and remain in the wastewater feed. The emulsified oil is concentrated in this manner up to approximately 60% oil and solids.
WHAT IS EMULSIFIED OIL?
There are two forms of oil that we find in wastewater. Free Oil is oil that will separate naturally and float to the surface. Emulsified Oil is oil that is held in suspension by a chemical substance (Detergents – Surfactants) or electrical energy. Free Oil will normally separate by gravity and float to the surface in approximately 30 minutes. Emulsified Oil is held in a molecular structure called a micelle and will not separate on its own.
