OilFree Filter Cartridges

OilFree is a patented polymeric technology that is applied to all Oilfree filter cartridges and related technologies. The Oilfree solution removes hydrocarbons from water, emulsified polluants from water, PCB's, BTEX, oily sheen, synthetic and natural oils, solvents and organically bound metals from water.

Easy Removal of Hydrocarbons

The OiFree technology is engineered to remove hydrocarbons from water, instantly. OilFree immobilizes and permanently bonds the hydrocarbon compounds without developing pressure. The OilFree technology removes oily sheen, synthetic and natural oils, BTEX, PCB's, solvents and organically bound metals. The pressure drop across a saturated OilFree cartridge is less than 1 psi. Oilfree technology is available in turn-key systems with operational ranges from 1 gpm - 5000 gpm.

OilFree Hydrocarbon Removal Matrix (HRM)

Easy Removal of Hydrocarbons from Water

The OiFree technology is engineered to remove hydrocarbons from water instantly. OilFree immobilizes and permanently bonds the hydrocarbon compounds without developing pressure. The OilFree technology removes oily sheen, synthetic and natural oils, BTEX, PCB's, solvents and organically bound metals. The pressure drop across a saturated OilFree cartridge is less than 1 psi. Oilfree technology is available in turn-key systems with operational ranges from 1 gpm - 5000 gpm.

OilFree cartridges are able to remove TPH to below detectable limits: with no water drag out; high efficiency (generally greater than 99.9%); small footprint; fixed chemistry and it is very effective in handling large slugs of pollutants

The cartridges exhibit low pressure differential, no moving parts and will not desorb while treating a wide range of polluants.

OilFree High Temperature Technology (HT)

OilFree High Temperature Cartridges incorporate a high temperature tolerant version of OilFree technology which immobilizes and bonds the hydrocarbons instantly on the filter surface. OilFree High Temperature technology is employed as a stand alone unit or as part of turn-key systems for high temperature waste water filtration applications which are economically sensitive to pressure drop and temperature drop.

Applications

  • Filtration of hydrocarbons from boiler condensate for recycle and reuse
  • Filtration of oils and hydrocarbons from cooling water and evaporators
  • Cleaning of turbine cooling fluids
  • Cleaning of compressor condensate
  • Filtration of hydrocarbons in vacuum or pressure sensitive processes in refineries and chemical synthesis

OilFree PCB Removal Cartridges

OilFree PCB filters are designed to remove low levels of all types of PCB's (Polychlorinated Biphenyls) down to allowable discharge levels (typically 65 ppt). OilFree instantly solubilizes the PCB compounds and bonds them to its surface, preventing any release. OilFree cartridges can also remove low level BTEX (Benzene, Toluene, Ethylbenzene and Xylene) components.

Technical Data

  • Flow Rate: Operational range 1 - 6 gpm (recommended flow rate 5 gpm)
  • Maximum temperature: 140°F (60°C)
  • Construction Material: String wound polypropylene over polypropylene core
  • Pore Size: 1 micron
  • Loading Capacity per Cartridge: 300 g PCBs / 360 g BTEX & light hydrocarbons
  • Filter Length: 30" / Filter Diameter: 2 1/2", the cartridges are designed to fit standard 30"
  • DOE (Double Open End) filter housings
  • Disposal: Oilfree PCB cartridges incinerate down to .2% ash value

Applications

  • Landfill Leachate
  • Groundwater Remediation
  • Transformer Sites
  • Underground Utilities
  • Paper Bleaching
  • Site Remediation
  • Gas Line Dewatering
  • Paint Plasticizer Runoff
  • Hydraulic Remediation
  • Gas Condensation
