Depending on what construction or manufacturing processes that need to be carried out in your commercial or industrial line, there may invariably be a case for you to be using any one of the following oil separating processes. Perhaps you want to make a note of these for future reference. In the meantime, somewhere down the line, air compressor oil is being used. The five separating processes you could make a note of so long are; the oily separation of pleated air, deep filter air oil separations, a process known as spin on, traditional vacuum separations and the use of natural gas during refrigeration processes.
The pleated air oil separation process is also known as the use of pleated filter media. Filter media is processed via a machine that induces the pleated or wave-like appearance. The deep filter process is commonly using up to three different grades of borosilicate glass, all wrapped in support tubes with the capacity to hold larger than average amounts. Spin on entails a process of resisting pressure. But it remains similar to the processes canned during the use of traditional oil filters.
Oil separators used in vacuum packages are constructed in similar fashion to standard oil separators. They therefore offer similar types of oil removal performances. These separators, however, are designed mainly with flow direction (from outside to inside) in mind. They are, therefore, suitable only for maximum pressure differentials. Where refrigeration (natural) gas processes are concerned, specific inorganic materials are required.
This is necessary for the construction of properly functioning oil separators in refrigeration and natural gas compressor packages. These units without air are compressed and mixed with lubricating oil which must be removed prior to utilizing gas. In these refrigeration processes, natural gasses continue to be utilized.
