#1 Cost-Effective Compliance Strategy for Compressor Condensate Management

post date: 5/1/2020

If your company produces compressor condensate, you may be aware of some of the challenges associated with managing the fluid. Managing condenser condensate improperly can be costly. The EPA has the authority to levy significant fines on companies that are not complying with the Clean Water Act.

The Cost of Non-Compliance

A Bay City, Michigan company faced a $25,000 per day fine for discharging oil into the Saginaw Bay. Less than two years ago, a Connecticut company agreed to pay a $1 million dollar fine for improperly disposing of wastewater>. In a release from the U.S. Department of Justice, Cynthia Giles, Assistant Administrator for EPA’s Office of Enforcement and Compliance Assurance, is quoted as saying, “Protecting these communities’ means holding violators accountable, both for illegal discharges and for failure to report them.”

The #1 Cost-Effective Compliance Strategy

The #1 cost-effective strategy for compressor condensate management to bring your company into EPA compliance is an oil-water separator. But all oil-water separators are not alike. Some separators can be expensive to buy, install, and maintain. Plus, you may still have the problem of properly disposing of the oil. As we mentioned, that can be costly if done improperly.

The Clean Resources Solution

Clean Resources oil-water separators are not engineered like most others who use gravity to separate the fluids. Our oil-water separators use a unique blend of aluminosilicate as a media bed. This media bed accomplishes two essential tasks. It repels water while it also bonds to the oil, securely trapping the oil inside. It bonds so well, the used media bed can be disposed of with your regular waste. The water can be disposed of in any drain.

EPA Compliance

The EPA has compliance levels of 40 parts per million for compressor condensate. Our products clean the condensate to less than 10 parts per million. This is a level so insignificant that most indicators can’t even measure it. It is so far below compliance levels; it should bring you peace of mind.

Our cost-effective, easy-to-use oil-water separators are simple to install, require little maintenance, and are incredibly effective. See why they have been chosen to keep over 10,000 compressor rooms in EPA compliance. Contact Clean Resources today.
