Waste Oil Recovery From A Far East Steel Maker

OPEC recently completed an installation of 2 'Eseries' machines for the recycling of waste oil from effluent water on a major steel works in Korea. The machines use OPEC MOP to adsorb any floating oils on the water surface.

Using the OPEC mop and specially made fixed guide rollers on the opposite side to the E-series machine, allows full coverage of the width of the effluent ponds and pits to ensure any floating oils passing the mop are collected.

The OPEC Eseries machines use closed loop mops which are made to order for each application.

Payback for this type of use can be anything from 3-9 months per machine. In some extreme cases on steel works OPEC machines have a return on investment of as little as 6 weeks.

OPEC has more than 1500 mop machines working globally on all types of applications for surface oil recovery with over 200 of them in the steel industry.

The machines can be applied to circular clarifiers, deep drains, sumps, separators, scale pits, settlement ponds and so on.
