About the webinar:
On July 28th 2011 Mercer International’s David Goding and international industry expert Philip D’Angelo put on a complimentary webinar to help engineering, compliance, and maintenance departments reach common ground when assessing the three major questions that relate to removing oil and solids from water:
- How do I prevent my company from incurring fines and citations?
- How do I increase the time between maintenance/cleaning schedules and still produce satisfactory effluent?
- How do I save my company money in regard to our separator equipment?
Regulatory mandates governing the allowable oil and solids effluent concentration call for strict evaluation, making it crucial for those tasked with compliance or environmental oversight to select the most efficient technologies for separation processing. However, efficiency is meaningless unless engineers and maintenance professionals are able to maintain efficiency for sustained periods of time.
Using examples from today’s industry trends and actual case studies, you will discover what you need to know about:
- Industry trends, challenges and opportunities as well as a review of the 5 mainstream options on the market today.
- True cost of ownership (TCO) as it relates to the lifecycle of oil water separation (OWS)
- Critical issues that are often overlooked when selecting an oil water separator and pitfalls that are inherent in most traditional designs
Who Should Watch: Anyone who is evaluating Oil Water Separation, maintaining oil water separators or tasked with compliance or environmental oversight.
