This diagram shows a typical installation of the
Highland Below Grade Oil / Water Separator
Construction and Design:
Oil - Water Separator installations vary greatly with each location. We'll make sure you
get a custom fabricated solution to satisfy you specific needs.
Our cylindrical designed separators remove oils with a specific gravity less
than .95, and are constructed to meet the specifications of the American
Petroleum Institute, Underwater Laboratories, and the Steel Tank Institute.
Common construction options include: single wall (of mild carbon or stainless
steel), double wall Type I (with a secondary steel wall completely wrapped
around the primary vessel, and double Wall Type II (consisting of two steel
walls separated by standoffs that provide a defined space between tanks).
