of operation:

(Fiqure1..) with before

Waste condensate in a compressed air system is generally contaminated oil. This oil i. introduced by the air compressor and must be removed the conden8ate i8 di8charqed into a sewer.

Condensate drain lines from the system aftercoolers, filters, dryers and receivers may be piped directly into the inlet connection (3) of the Ecosep. As the condensate enters the Ecosep, any pressure i8 reduced to atmospheric pressure via the diffuser. The spray from this depressurization is captured by the CVF charcoal filter (2). At this point the oil/water mixture drains through the inlet tube as8embly (4) into the initial oil separation chamber

(5) .

3.

Within the initial oil separation chamber (5), the bulk of the oil rises to the surface and out into the .8condary settlinq chamber (7). The water is discharqed at the bottom of the initial oil separation chamber (5) to allow a flow of the cleanest conden.ate to enter the secondary separation chamber (7) at the bottom of the unit. The water then enter. the feeder pipe and throuqh displacement is caried into the first staqe activated charcoal chamber (8). The water flows down throuqh the activated charcoal filter which adsorb. any re.idual oil from the condensate and into the second staqe activated charcoal chamber via the transfer tube. Aqain throuqh displacement the condensate passe. throuqh a final polishinq filter and out the water discharge outlet (9). NOTE: The model WT 10 & WT 5 have only one activated charcoal filter (8). Throughout the process entrained Over a period of time a quantity build up on the surface until it and into an appropriate container oil is continuing to ri8e to the surface. of oil ( approximately 1/2" to 1" deep) will flow8 out of the oil di8charge assembly (10) (customer furnished) for proper disposal.

After inLtial installation it will take weeks or months before the first amount of oil will be drained. Once the separator begins to discharge oil into the waste oil container be sure to inspect it for a mixture of oil and water. If this is the case, adjust the sleeve on the discharge port to a higher level.

An exact indication of the rest oil content can only be determined by a sample analysis from an independent laboratory. A sample can be taken via the sample valve on the separator. Regular sample analysis determines the condition of the activated charcoal filter and water quality. Zander provides a testing service for the Ecosep. Please contact your local Zander distributor for more information on this service. *

The service life of the activated charcoal filter depends on the type of compressor, type of lubricating oil, amount of waste condensate, temperature of the waste condensate and the condensate discharge system. Normal loading conditions of compressor oil with good separation characteristics will render an average service life of about three to four months. It is recommended by the manufacturer to sample the water quality every ninety days at a minimum to ascertain the condition of the activated charcoal filters and ensure a consistant effluent quality from the separator.
