Brain VGS Vertical Gravity Separator

Designed to separate non-emulsified oil and water

If your reading this then you will understand that separating your oil and water can turn a waste disposal cost into a positive self-funding operation.  The Brain VGS (Vertical Gravity Separator) is a compact, cost effective unit developed to separate non-emulsified
oil and water . Simple to install operate and maintain a VGS can achieve the necessary water quality for discharge to water authority standards, while oil and low density waste solids can be profitably reclaimed or recycled

  • Portable
  • Cost effective effluent treatment.
  • Produces clean water and reclaimed oil.
  • Removes potentially hazardous vapor’s.
  • Reduces the risk of high pollution penalties.

How Does it Work?

The VGS operates by the control of both fluid flow rate and pressure. The patented internal geometry of the VGS regulates these forces & allows non-emulsified impurities to separate from the water under gravity; high-density contaminants to fall to the bottom of the vessel and importantly the oil phase and low density suspended solids to rise to the top of the VGS thus separating the oil & dense solids from the water.

Waste Minimisation

A solution is to reduce oil contaminated risings from interceptors by applying the Liquid Skimmer and Vertical Gravity Separator (VGS), which removes the oil from the interceptor on entry thus reducing the chances of oil contacting the silt, which settles in the bottom of the interceptors and prevents emulsified oil from settling on top of the silt. This in turn reduces the frequency of oily solids removal and concentrates the oil / liquid waste in a holding tank, which is a lower cost collection and disposal waste stream
