Separator testing

This kind of test aims to determine the basic dimensions and the class of light liquid and grease separators.

A standardized mixture of water and hydrocarbons is introduced in the grease separator during a given time, after which the residual rate of hydrocarbons will be measured.
In the case of light liquid separators, the basic dimensions correspond to the maximum acceptable flow rate of wastewater in l/s that can guarantee a release whereby the flow rate of hydrocarbons should not exceed 5mg/l for a class I separator and 100 mg/l for a class II separator.
 

In the case of grease separators, the basic dimensions correspond to the maximum acceptable flow rate in l/s that can guarantee a release whereby the hydrocarbons flow rate does not exceed 25 mg/l.

Bench test capacity : 

  • Maximum flow : 30 l/s

Standards :

  • EN 858 for light liquid separators
  • EN 1825 for grease separators
