Mobile light liquid separators are available today for a wide range of applications. Sophisticated solutions from LK Metallwaren ensure maximum robustness and highest efficiency even for demanding applications!
In addition to the use of stationary separators, the application radius of mobile plants has recently also expanded more and more. These have long since been used not only in standard applications such as the treatment of washing water before it is discharged into the sewers or of rainwater in service stations, but also for direct protection against water or soil contamination. The range here now extends from industrial (process) water treatment and wastewater generated in the overall area of production or disposal to water pollution control and the elimination of leakages.
Mobile separators from LK Metallwaren have proven their worth across the entire spectrum of application variants for over thirty years now. Based on a technology that has proven itself over decades – filterless separation via a double-acting oil separation principle – we have further developed our solutions for a wide range of applications in response to increasing demand. These combine technical effectiveness, or the highest degrees of separation, with a high degree of robustness and the (very) long service life generally praised in LK solutions.
To date, we supply our customers with high-performance separators in a number of different mobile variants. The advantage of the LK separator system here is that the separation of the water from the contaminated light liquids does not require the use of moving parts, while still providing the required performance even under more stringent wastewater values.
The separator systems made of stainless steel are always constructed from the same proven components. The most important elements here are the sludge trap, a separator (with flow rates from 1.5 up to 100 liters per second), and a collection tank for the oil separated from it.
For a variety of applications, the benefits offered by mobile solutions are obvious. Thus, the installed equipment can be drained right on site: The water cleaned of the light liquid is discharged into the sewer system after separation, and the separated light liquid flows into the oil storage tank.
In this regard, LK Metallwaren offers users the full range of turnkey solutions: from transportable units delivered with a lifting device or on trailers, to separators permanently mounted on trucks, to complete containerized units delivered with the desired peripherals for more permanent use on site.
In the process, operators of mobile light liquid separators from LK Metallwaren benefit from the same advantages offered by the use of stationary LK systems. First and foremost, this includes constant efficiency for highly reliable operation. Fill levels can also be monitored remotely. In addition, cleaning and maintenance measures can be reduced to the necessary minimum due to the corrosion-resistant and particularly stable design. Requirements according to DIN 1999-100/101 and DIN EN 858-1/2 are met with the LK oil separator solutions and can be supplemented, as desired, with a comprehensive service and maintenance package for maximum operator safety.
Experience from over 30 years of LK separator technology
– Application and technology more current than ever
Classic oil firefighting equipment for emergency use – since 1987. Here, the trailer solutions creates an optimal starting position for a quick deployment on the highway or at other locations (especially in case of leakage of oily liquid). This creates the possibility not only to pump out oils, but also to recycle them directly before. Such oil fire departments are also used on larger industrial sites, which are equipped with their own plant fire department.
Compact dimensions as a central design requirement: for the transport of mobile separators on suitable trucks for delivery during temporary operations.
The “big mobile solution” – here using the example of a complete separator and filter station. If necessary, such a system can also replace the use of larger plants and is particularly useful when large quantities of liquids need to be pumped out and recycled. Such permanently installed “truck solutions” can, of course, also be equipped with additional peripheral devices in accordance with the permissible size.
Highly mobile – ready for use as quickly as possible, the separator system in the standard version with lifting fork pockets, crane eyes or heavy-duty rollers is mainly used in the industrial sector, as it can be used in quick succession at the collection areas of several plants or machines.
Equally compact and hypermobile – the trailer solution. Such permanently mounted separator-trailer combinations are used in particular for projects where operations have to be carried out within a defined radius. Examples of this are the extraction of oily components from rainwater catch basins or oil leakages from bodies of water.
The complete container solution can accommodate not only all separator and filtration components, but also all peripheral equipment. In addition, it has the advantage that public or private operators do not have to provide their own premises for the equipment to be installed. Another advantage: They are supplied and connected by LK Metallwaren as fully pre-assembled and thoroughly tested plug-and-play solutions!
