The BEKOSPLIT® method
The wastewater flows through a pressure relief chamber 1 for pretreatment in the preseparation tank 2 where free oil parts are reliably separated out by simple gravitational separation. This process is unaffected by fluctuations in the wastewater inflow.
The separated oil is discharged automatically 3 , and the liquid levels are monitored
by a capacitive electronic system that distinguishes accurately between air, oil and emulsion. This ensures that
emulsion cannot get into the oil collector, and free parts cannot enter the splitting process.

The pretreated wastewater is then pumped into the reaction chamber 5 for fully automatic treatment. The reaction process uses bentonite as a splitting agent, a non-toxic natural alumina mineral which is stored in a metering unit 4 and stirred into the wastewater in amounts precisely adapted to the particular application. The splitting agent encapsulates the oil and dirt particles. This results in easily filterable macro flocs which are then removed by a bag filter 6 . The purified water can now be discharged into the sewerage system.
Function of BEKOSPLIT 12-16
The broad-range (pH 4 to 10), highly effective splitting agent eliminates not only the need for the continual adaptation of pH values, but also for the use of chemicals.
