Sullivan-Palatek Oil-Water Separators
Oil-water separators for compressed air systems keep your air compressor’s internal water and oil independent of one another to prevent contaminant-related damages and complications.
SP Separator Series – Oil/Water Separators
At Fluid Aire Dynamics, our Sullivan-Paletek water separators come with a wide range of innovative features and benefits for any industrial market. From high performance rates to easy installation and versatile sizing options, our SP Series oil-water separators are some of the best in the business.
Sullivan-Palatek 60-7000 SCFM Model
Oil-water separators by Sullivan-Palatek use the most advanced proprietary filtration technologies to separate oil from water in your air compression systems. This media is made of 100% recycled materials for better sustainability and is noncarbon-based for the best oil absorption and water repellence. When you use SP Series separators, you can ensure that your condensate is clean and can be disposed of safely and cost-efficiently.
Standard air compression and gas systems create thousands of gallons of liquids every year. Disposing of this condensate can be expensive and unnecessary. Condensate produced by compressed air systems often consists primarily of pure water that can be cleaned and flushed away seamlessly and affordably. You can achieve this level of cleanliness with Sullivan-Palatek oil-water separators and significantly lower condensate disposal costs.
The SP Series features high-tech and innovative designs that raise the bar for oil-water separators with environmentally friendly media. This separation technology is simple and effective without the use of external oil containers, messy carbon bags or untreated condensate tanks.

Innovative Filter Media
Standard separators use activated carbon substances that can be messy and require extensive maintenance, such as frequent replacements, presoaking and substantial contact time. SP Series oil-water separators offer solutions to these problems with high-tech proprietary media. This noncarbon-based technology captures oils and repels water cleanly and simply.
Basic separators use settling tanks and rely on the oil’s natural ability to separate from the condensate — though many of these synthetic oils have a similar composition to water and won’t settle. The heat from the drain valves can also amplify the issue by emulsifying the mixture before it comes into contact with the separator.
SP Series oil-water separators don’t rely on settling tanks, eliminating the risks of poor oil separation and premature emulsification.
You must consider many factors when sizing a standard separator, such as condensate flow, surrounding conditions, oil type, pressure levels, compressor type and temperature. Sullivan-Palatek water separators eliminate this problem with easy sizing based on gas or airflow. They can be used for single units of up to 10,000 scfm.
Traditional separators have large settling tanks that require a wide amount of floor space. Because our oil-water separators don’t need these hefty tanks and come in a compact design, they are more space-efficient and easier to install. Many of our models also come equipped with wall-mounting kits to make your setup process easier.
Our filter media come packaged in easy-handling bags that are lightweight and clean — unlike heavy standard activated carbon bags that require presoaking. This means SP Series separators are ready for use the moment you remove them from their packaging.
With our separators, you’ll never have to empty oil collection containers or clean settling tanks. That’s because our separators feature disposable filters that capture oil seamlessly. You can even monitor your media kit and ensure that you adhere to discharge standards with Sullivan-Paletek’s service indicators. Their time strips indicate when it’s time for a new media installation.
Sustainable media allows our Sullivan-Paletek water separators to repel water and absorb oil for the cleanest condensate. Once condensate is purified, it can be properly disposed of without high expenses.
After condensate is sent to the oil-water separator, it passes into the primary filter, which:
- Depressurizes the condensate.
- Traps solid particles to protect the secondary filter.
- Captures bulk hydrocarbons at a high oil absorbent capacity.
Once the condensate travels through the main filter, it then passes through a network of intricate filtration media, which absorbs and releases oil concentrations of 5 ppmv or less so the remaining water can be discarded in adherence to environmental standards.
