Cleaning of Means of Transport and Means of Travel

The inside of road tankers and silo vehicles has to be cleaned after every change of cargo. The wastewater generated in this process has come into contact with different materials which have to be removed afterwards for legal discharge into the sewers. Similarly, if the wastewater is to be used as circulating water, is has to meet high standards concerning cleanliness and hygiene.

The popular fully automated car washes, too, often generate wastewater requiring treatment. Mostly invisible for the customer, wastewater treatment is carried out on site. The use of an oil-water separator according to EN 858 is the minium standard required by law. If there are emulsions in the waste water, EN 858 requires the use of an “emulsion breaking system” (EBS) as a supplement to the oil separator.

In accordance with international agreements on the prevention of pollution of the seas and rivers, vessels must discharge their oily bilge water in the ports to be suitably treated there. This applies to both offshore navigation and inland navigation.

For more than 20 years, OKO-aquaclean® have been proven systems for an economical and safe treatment of these waste waters at home and abroad.

Depending on the requirements, we offer the modular systems in different sizes and equipment versions. The basic model, the oil-water separator, is supplemented by the desired modules for flotation and/or emulsion breaking:

  • oil-water separator/light-liquid separator according to DIN 1999/EN 858
  • flotation plant for separating unstable emulsions
    finest particulates are floated to the surface by microscopically small air bubbles
  • emulsion breaking system (EBS) for treating stable emulsions by physico-chemical treatment

Thus, the most efficient and cost-effective method for reliable wastewater treatment is provided.
