The Jay R. Smith Mfg. Co. Ultracept Oil/Water Separation System, 8600 Series,is an above ground unit that removes free oil from wastewater.The proprietary Ultracept Oil/Water Separator continuously skims even the slightestsheens of oil from the surface of the water. The skimmed oil is discharged into astorage tank where it is easily removed for proper disposal. Solids that are collectedare discharged through a sludge draw-off valve in the rear of the unit.®When Meeting Discharge Requirements is the Problem,The ULTRACEPT System is the Solution.The ULTRACEPT Process
Ultracept series separators are used in applications such as:• Service Garages with Engine Maintenance & Rebuild• Industrial Plants• Heavy Equipment Wash• Ground Water Remediation• Truck Wash• Vehicle Wash• Aircraft Maintenance FacilitationThe ULTRACEPT ProcessThe Ultracept works best in cleaning applications where oil and sediment must be efficientlyremoved to very low (PPM) discharge levels. Discharges under 10 PPM have been achieved.®When Meeting Discharge Requirements is the Problem,The ULTRACEPT System is the Solution.
The Ultracept System uses no coalescing packs.While coalescing packs can help separate oil inappropriate applications, in truck wash down areasand other applications with high concentrations ofsuspended solids mixed with oil and grease, thecoalescing packs clog quickly, necessitatingmaintenance. If maintenance is ignored, cloggedcoalescing filter packs can cause discharge violationsor environmental spills due to unit overflows.No Coalescing PacksIt is very difficult to find anyonewho wants to clean these plates!What if you didnt have to dealwith messy, clogged coalescing plates?®When Meeting Discharge Requirements is the Problem,The ULTRACEPT System is the Solution.
The Ultracept design features high separation efficiency without the need for coalescingfilter packs. Ultracept incorporates a proprietary design which takes advantage of thecohesive quality of water coupled with a patented multi-stage separation process whichenhances separation. Analytical results validate the effectiveness of the Ultracept design.High Separation Efficiency!®When Meeting Discharge Requirements is the Problem,The ULTRACEPT System is the Solution.
Competing units use some variation of the “knife edge skimmer” to remove separated oilfrom water. This type of skimmer must be manually adjusted and is commonly misadjusted,resulting in water being skimmed with the recovered oil ( <10% water in the recovered oilis typically required by the waste oil reclaimers).In contrast, the Ultracept utilizes a “Continuous Skim” design that skims oil and water as itenters the skimming chamber. Water is used as a carrier in the skimming process. The skimmedoil and separated water are deposited in an off-line compartment with extended detention timeallowed for separation. The water that carries the oil to this final treatment compartment isautomatically decanted back to the surge pit and the pure oil is collected in the oil compartmentfor draw-off or for automatic gravity transfer to an adjacent oil storage tank.Continuous Skimming (Water is used as a carrier)®When Meeting Discharge Requirements is the Problem,The ULTRACEPT System is the Solution.
How The Ultracept System Can Work For You.Truck / Maintenance Shopand Wash AreaWater flows from aboveground into Smith /ACOtrench drains.Water flows fromtrench drains intoan undergroundcollection pit.The water comes into thecollection pit and flows over abaffle to collect large debris.The water comesover the baffle andgets pumped aboveground into theUltracept.The water comes into theUltracept and passes overbaffles that separates the oilfrom the water.The water comes in from the baffleschamber and the oil gets collected tobe drawn-off while the clean water isreturned to the sewer systemThe over flow water is pipedfrom the Ultracept back tothe collection pit to begin theprocess over.
• No coalescing packs, filters, moving partsor chemicals• Effective multi-stage separation process•• Continuous skim design ensures negligiblewater content in collection waste oil• Simple on-grade installation• Easy to modify to recycle wash water• Minimal required maintenanceFeatures & Benefits:
Many competing companies have only below groundsystems. Separating and storing oil below ground isa disadvantage with owner liability for leaky under-ground tanks and contaminated soil. Above groundinstallations are easier to service and maintain.Underground units are typically gravity fed butstill require a pump to remove the oil and drainthe unit. The Ultracept is piped to allow for gravitydraining of the entire unit for cleaning. The separatedoils flow from the unit via gravity to a storage vessel.Above vs. Below Ground Installations®When Meeting Discharge Requirements is the Problem,The ULTRACEPT System is the Solution.
Since Ultracept systems have no moving parts, no coalescing packs to clean and nofilters to change, suggested maintenance is less than 10 minutes a week. When occasionalservice is required on an Ultracept (e.g., to remove a heavy sediment layer on bottom on unit),a drain valve connected to the multiple drain ports on the rear of the unit is simply openedto drain the unit back to the surge pit. The sediment can then be easily removed (with a wetvacuum, or equivalent).Service and Maintenance®When Meeting Discharge Requirements is the Problem,The ULTRACEPT System is the Solution.
®The ULTRACEPT System SizingThe Ultracept unit comes in a variety of sizes to fit virtually any application. Units areavailable for nominal flow rates of 2, 5, 10, 25, and 45 gallons per minute. Multipleunits can also be installed in parallel to handle even higher flow rates.Model GPM GPD8602 2 2,8808605 5 7,2008610 10 14,4008625 25 36,0008645 45 64,800Ultracept Flow CapacitiesThe process is the same regardless of the units size.
