  • API oil–water separator is a device designed to separate gross amounts of oil and suspended solids from the waste water effluents of oil refineries, petrochemical plants, chemical plants, natural gas processing plants and other industrial oily water sources.
    The name is derived from the fact that such separators are designed according to standards published by the American Petroleum Institute. (Applicable design code: API 421)
    API Separators are frequently used in the pre-treatment of refinery waste water that has been contaminated by oil and oily sludge.
    API removes free oil more than 150 microns as a pre-treatment. API Separators can be equipped with VOC containment covers. Both fixed and floating styles are available.
