Oil and Gas waste water includes small amounts of free or dissolved hydrocarbons and solids that must be removed before the water can be re-used, injected or discharged. The level of removal (particularly for hydrocarbons) and disposal options are typically specified by the client. Treatment to remove dispersed hydrocarbons in the form of oil droplets from water relies on gravity separation, with addition of our unique coalescing plate pack internals. Within the KD separator, so called Skimmertank the process of coalescence takes place; that is, small oil droplets collide and form bigger droplets.
KD's Oil Water Separator is a gravity separation device designed by using Stokes Law to define the rise velocity of oil droplets based on their density and size. The design of the separator is based on the specific gravity difference between the oil and the wastewater. KD International offers an extensive line of Mobile Oily Water Separators that bring both efficiency and low maintenance. With some unique innovations KD´s Oil Water Separators, make the design highly efficient, easy to maintain and suitable for the demand of each individual client and application. Our unique design and technology makes KD's Oil Water Separators the preferred choice for the following applications; (1) Oil Spills on seas / oceans (2) Oil Spills on rivers / lakes (3) Oil Spills in groundwater (4) Oil Spills in harbours (5) process waters (6) overboard water.

The presence of surfactants in oil and gas waters can cause very stable emulsions, treating this water by the use of chemicals like coagulants in combination with flocculants requires chemicals handling & storage, specialized personnel and extra transports. The traditional management of oil and gas water is costly and wasteful. Series SWANOX, Treatment Skid, utilizes alternative force to drive chemical reactions in a solution, suspension, or emulsion. The treatment process is very similar to normal chemical coagulation, the difference is that it uses an alternative energy force.
KD International supplies engineered coalescing oily water separators for installation inside new prefabricated or to retrofit existing concrete tanks. Our technology can be installed inside existing above or below ground round, square or rectangular tanks. KD´s oily water separators separate free non emulsified oil, hydrocarbons, diesel, gasoline, fuels, from water to below 5 parts per million (ppm). The KD´s oily water separator design can be sized for any flow rate desired in single or multi channel designs to accommodate facility shutdown and maintenance activities without stopping the flow. A wide variety of configurations and features can be provided. When compared to traditional API oil water separators, KD´s separators provides higher oil removal performance and greater efficiency.
KD International supplies a complete line of cylindrical below-ground, steel oily water separators for stormwater and wastewater applications. These high performance units are custom fabricated to meet and exceed the strict construction and performance criteria. KD´s separators are fabricated in carbon steel and available in single-wall and double-wall constructions. KD´s below ground oily water separators can be designed with leak detection systems and passive cathodic protection systems to protect the steel tanks in the ground. Optional our separators can designed with additional corrosion protection package. With our unique design KD´s separators are suitable for large flow rate´s and are available with a variety of influent and effluent product handling options.
The EX-100 is a side stream analyzer using the fluorescence measurement technique. The EX-1000 has additional benefit of spectral analysis. The introduction of this revolutionary oil in water analyzers began with the EX-100. It was the first on-going maintenance free analyzer to provide continuous uninterrupted accurate measurements of oil concentrations. For the first time, reliable real time data enabled operators to take accurate discharge measurements and thus take the next step to improve efficiency of separation processes and saving money.
