Oil/ Water Separation

AMPAC USA oil separation systems leverage nanotechnology to selectively segregate biomolecules after initial mechanical processing (centrifuge/ decanting) of extract liquid, solid material and water.

Polymer Sorb® -- Innovative Hydrocarbon/ Water Separation Technology

AMPAC USA Polymer Sorb® is a proprietary blend of synthetic polymers designed to remove oil derivatives and hydrocarbons from water.   

Polymer Sorb® has a highly porous structure with hydrophobic and oleophilic characteristics capable of removing hydrocarbons while allowing high flow-through rates of water.

Polymer Sorb Media

Polymer Sorb® remains buoyant in calm or agitated water, permitting it to remain in place until fully saturated, to ensure that the product is fully utilized.

In addition, all absorbed oil and hydrocarbon residue is non-leaching; Polymer Sorb® transforms the pollutants into a stable solid allowing for a practical, less expensive, hassle free handling and disposal.  This result in a problem-free closed-loop solution to water pollution.  

The Polymer Sorb® is designed not to deteriorate in water, allowing for longer product life.

AMPAC USA has developed an intra-filter antimicrobial technology synergistic with Polymer Sorb® technology.  This effort produced Polymer Sorb® Plus, which features an antimicrobial agent chemically and permanently bound through proprietary process to the Polymer Sorb® surface to promote and prolong the effective and efficient functioning of the pre-filter. 


Key Benefits:

  • Effective in fresh or saltwater at temperatures ranging from 32° to 130° F
  • Chemically selective to hydrocarbons
  • Inhibits growth of mildew and mold
  • inactivates bacteria in contact
  • Capable of removing up to 3 times its own weight in hydrocarbons
  • Reduces or removes sheen
  • Remains completely buoyant even after saturation
  • Transforms fluid hydrocarbons into a stable solid per EPA's Toxicity Characteristic  Leaching Procedure (TCLP)
  • Offers both point and non-point source pollution prevention
  • Provides potential for long-lasting remediation
  • Excellent pre-filtration for sea water desalination reverse osmosis systems in polluted areas 

AMPAC USA has developed Filter Sorb Media 4" x 20" Cartridge to fit Standard Big Blue Filters for different Applications as follows:
