Did you know that each oil separator (OS) has a matching oil collection tank (OCT)?
It is not a requirement for an OS to be installed with an OCT. However, there is one application where it makes a lot of sense: oil level monitoring.
If the project requires an oil level monitoring system, an OS would need to be installed with an OCT and an AVA-3 or AVA-4 level monitoring system. The level system includes a control panel with audio and visual alarms, as well as the single- or multi-level float switch. The float switch is to be installed in the OCT. We provide everything needed to install the float switch inside the OCT.
The OS would be ordered with a draw-off arm (D02) to draw oil from the OS to the OCT.
A secondary benefit of an OCT is that it increases the total liquid and oil capacity of the oil separator system. We recommend only installing equal-sized OS and OCT units.
