AbsorbALL Oil/Water Condensate Separators

The reduction of pollution and effluent is of vital concern in today’s industrial environment. The consequence of unlawful pollution or contamination affects us all in the future of our environment and the way we run our businesses. Ultrachem has helped develop the absorbALL family of oil/water condensate separators to help businesses meet local, state and federal regulations while profitably reducing the amount of effluent generated from their compressed air systems.

Ultrachem has five models of our successful oil/water separators that are useful as an add-on system to your current air compressor system. These absorbALLs will remove the excess oil from the large amount of water generated when air is compressed. In many cases, reducing the oil to levels below 100 ppm will allow the remaining water to be disposed of in a sanitary sewer. Your local sewer district can help supply guidelines on local regulations.

Our many years of manufacturing air compressor oils with a variety of petroleum and synthetic formulations gives Ultrachem unique experience in being able to separate the oils from the water. The absorbALLs may be successfully used with any oil currently used in an industrial air compressor application.

absorbALL Features

  • Automatic—No electricity or heat required to work. Units should not be placed in an area where it is likely to freeze.
  • Energy Efficient—No moving parts.
  • No Bacteria—No stagnant water means no bacteria buildup. Avoid the use of oil/water separators that incorporate large settling tanks, as they can generate harmful bacteria or molds due to stagnate water.
  • Built-in Depressurization Chamber—Use with autodrains, timer controlled drains, intelligent drains or manual drains. Will accept blowdown pressures to 250 psi in most cases.
  • Safe—Thermal units heat condensate and release harmful vapors into the air, use energy, and cost many times more to purchase and maintain.
  • Easy Model Sizing—Sizing is based on the cfm output of the compressors. Selection of the appropriate poly-element bag is based on the chemistry of the oil. If the compressor is using a PAG (polyglcol type coolant) then there is an element bag specifically for that type of oil and the cfm rating for each unit is reduced. We have found that large reciprocating compressors, particularly double-acting recips., generally send more oil downstream which results in a shorter bag life; as the bags can only absorb so much oil. There is no need to worry about diminished capacity with humidity increases.
  • System Expansion—In many cases the Model 750 and 1250 allow for increases in capacity for the future. Adding on the absorbALL Extender can double the capacity. The Extender may be positioned to the front or side.
  • UPS & FedEx Shipping—The smaller Enviro and the Model 520 easily ship by UPS or FedEx.

How absorbALLs Work

The absorbALLs utilize a unique patented poly-element filter that acts as the primary filter to remove and absorb the bulk of the oil in the condensate. Different poly-elements treated with different proprietary chemicals are used for polyglycol (PAG) coolants.

The condensate then moves through a carbon filter media that acts as a polishing stage and removes all oil down to 20 ppm. The life of the filters is directly related to the amount of the oil in the condensate.

EXTENDER

oil-water1
Part # Model Description
9511 Extender Additional 1250 cfm
95113 Charcoal Bag Black Kit

Applications

The Extender may be hooked to the front or side of the 1250 and to the side of the 750. It will double the capacity of wither unit. The Extender contains an extremely large carbon filter media bag that cleans or polishes the condensate water, but it also serves another purpose. It slows the through-put of the condensate. The result is more dwell-time for the filters to work on the condensate and remove more of the oil.

The Extender may be added later as the air compressor system grows. It should be noted that all absorbALLs are totally dependent on the amount of oil used by the compressor.

Characteristics

  • Automatic – No electricity or heat required. Energy efficient. No moving parts.
  • Change indicator – Tells you when its time to change filters.
  • No bacteria – No stagnant water means no buildup of bacteria.
  • Built-in depressurization chamber – Means no required condensate settling tank. Use with autodrains, timer controlled drains, intelligent drains or manual drains. Will accept blowdown pressures to 250 psi.
  • Safe – Thermal units heat condensate and release harmful vapors into the air, use energy, and cost many times more.
