There are a vast number of stormwater separators on the market which can make it challenging when selecting the ideal solution for each project. Hydrodynamic separators and oil/water separators are often used interchangeably in the industry but each system is unique and one may be better suited for the overall treatment goals of the project. So what is the difference between a hydrodynamic separator and an oil water separator and how can you determine which one is best suited for your project?
We all know that stormwater runoff carries trash and debris into our water ways, but have you ever wondered what kind of material this runoff picks up?
A Contech Continuous Deflective Separation unit (CDS) was installed on a site in California and the performance of the unit was monitored over a 12 months. During a maintenance event, the trash and debris that was captured by the CDS was removed, and the contents were separated and characterized.
