Compressor Condensate Removal

Condensate is an unavoidable result of air compression. It is a chemically aggressive fluid that mainly consists of water, but also contains oil and dirt particles. This combination of substances can consequently cause serious environmental harm if released in its raw state. Water resource legislation stipulates that contaminated water must be treated to achieve prescribed safety levels regarding purity.

Condensate can often consist of 99 % water and 1 % oil = 10,000 ppm oil content.

The Water Resources Act, Chapter 2, paragraph 85, states that it is an offence to knowingly permit entry of toxic waste to surface or ground water.

It is an offence with a fine of £20,000 or more in a crown court. (Source BCAS fact sheet 302)
