OPS Sand Scrubber: The AEV

OPS Sand Scrubber: The AEV

This is the unit which competitors try to copy but in truth it is only efficient as part of the overall system:

The adiabatic expansion valve or “AEV” works by imparting high pressure water jets into a slurry with a high density of solid particles. The design ensures the energy hits the particles rather than the pipe wall – there is a wear pipe included in the design, but we have never had to change one – obviously it’s not truly Adiabatic but you get the gist.

The OPS AEV is designed to the required pressure directives and has operated in the EU, Canada, Africa and the Middle East providing  a high efficiency method for treating Oily Sand, Oily Sludge, Oily Millscale and Contaminated Soils.

Combined with OPS’s proprietary Electrocoagulation and DAF, AEV can process sludge lagoons, slops water, produced water, car wash and interceptor waste. In addition to the efficient removal of oil from sand and sludge, an AEV unit can also be configured to remove a range of other contaminants such as heavy metals.

Advantages of the OPS AEV

 

EFFICIENT

An OPS AEV can reduce oil on solids to <500ppm, delivering 2500ppm with a single pass without the use of chemical or heat.

 

SCALABLE

The OPS AEV has throughput tonnage rates up to 40t/h per scrubber. Unlimited scrubbers deployable with correct separation equipment specification.

 

ADAPTABLE

An AEV cleans different types of solids from fines to solids of up to 35mm, including sand, soil, chippings, road sweepings, gulley waste, steel mill-scale and glass.

 

FLIEXIBLE

Available in small footprint mobile systems relocatable within 24 hours, semi mobile and large scale fixed plant configurations.

 

SIMPLE

Fully PLC controlled allowing a single operator can run a plant with a loader driver feeding the unit.

 

COMPLETE

Combined with our world class effluent processing solutions, OPS offer complete modular treatment systems
