What is your experience in compressor condensate management?

Clean Resources began in 1997, and our team has over 50 years of experience in Condensate Management. Our company was formed with the singular goal of providing trouble-free oil-water separation for those in the compressed air and environmental markets.

Do I really need an air compressor oil-water separator?

If your job involves using an air compressor, absolutely! Whether you have been told by a compressor salesperson, or management to save a few bucks, dumping oil and contaminants down the drain morally wrong and worse, it’s illegal. Take ‘A Closer Look.’

Are your oil-water separators EPA compliant?

Yes, and we guarantee it. The Clean Water Act mandates the compressor condensate to have no more than 40 parts per million. Our products clean water to less than 10 parts per million. Most labs cannot even detect anything below 10 ppm.

How do your units separate oil and water?

We use a specially prepared media bed that attracts oil and repels water. The media bonds so completely with the contaminants it eliminates the possibility of groundwater contamination. Take ‘A Closer Look.’

Is this media hazardous to workers?

There are no hazardous ingredients. It is non-flammable, and Greenstream is non-absorbable through the skin. Take ‘A Closer Look.’

Are they proven in the field?

Absolutely! To date, over 30,000 compressor rooms have become EPA compliant using a Clean Resources Oil-Water Separator.

With what type of lubricants do your oil-water separators work?

Our units work with diester-based lubricants, PAO-based lubricants, glycol-based lubricants, hydraulic lubricants, food-grade lubricants, and mineral-based lubricants.

Is installation difficult?

We’ve designed our units to be simple to install. It is essential to prime the unit, and then attach an inlet and outlet hose, and calculate a change out date.

What do I do with the empty “jug”?

In most cases, spent units can be disposed of as part of your waste management pick up service, provided the proper paperwork is completed. In the event a unit cannot be disposed of through your regular pick up, Clean Resources will accept spent paks through our return program.

How do I get a new one?

Contact your Clean Resource distributor. Not sure who that is? Contact us here.

How much maintenance is involved with these units?

These products are engineered to minimize maintenance. Using them will reduce cleanups, reduce costs, and operate efficiently in all conditions.

How are your products guaranteed?

When properly sized and installed, our products are guaranteed to reduce the contaminants in your compressor condensate to less than 10 ppm for the life of the unit. In the event of failure under these conditions, Clean Resources, Inc. will replace the failed unit or provide a refund via your distributor.
