In military applications, the most common sources of wastewater requiring treatment for oil or grease separation are associated with vehicle maintenance activities. Within a motor pool, bilge water, or aircraft hangar, there are numerous areas associated with maintenance or vehicle wash stations that produce wastewater that will require treatment. Typical areas include, but are not limited to: wash racks, maintenance bays, fueling areas, and POL storage areas.
Mercer has also worked in naval applications where our separators were used for bilge and ballast water treatment. We have supplied separators effectively for both ships and submarines.
Mercer designs and fabricates oil/water separators for many industries around the world. Any industry where effluent performance is important and solids are present, and where maintenance is an on-going issue, our design should be considered.
