AGES and ConServ offer services in the cleaning of oil/water separators, as well as other large tanks and containers. In general accordance with the Code of Federal Regulations, we clean oil/water separators by flushing internal surfaces three times with an approved solvent. In each rinse, we use a volume of flushing solvent that is equal to approximately 10 percent of the tank or container capacity. There are a variety of approved solvents that can be used to clean oil/water separators. These cleaning procedures may be modified slightly based on conditions encountered in the field.
We also offer an oil/water separator maintenance service. We sample all oil/water separator tank liquids for PCBs (and other parameters as required) on a routine basis, prior to disposal through a client-approved, licensed disposal facility. Additionally, we coordinate the shipping and disposal of basement liquids.
