Industrial waste is one of the largest contributors to the contamination of water bodies. In Australia, regulatory authorities require industries to process their waste before disposal. This reduces pollution and keeps people safe from direct exposure to hazardous substances.
There are several ways to prevent industrial waste from getting into the environment. These include using industrial filtration, centrifugation and sludge dewatering systems.
This article features the Interfil Vacuumatic Dewatering System. It is one of the most effective factory-based wastewater treatment systems available. If you are interested in learning more about interfil’s sludge dewatering solutions, then keep reading….
It is quite common for water and oil to get mixed up in mechanical or industrial processes. This can happen in various ways. Some cases are unavoidable, such as when cleaning the garage floor or washing down an oily engine. Yet, other causes such as oil leaks or accumulation of water in your fuel tank can be prevented.
Since oil is not soluble in water, the mixture forms a suspension. Once the suspension gets into another medium such as the soil, rivers and large water bodies, it becomes more difficult to separate. Likewise, if the oil-water suspension gets into your engine, …
Industrial facilities use different types of oils and hydrocarbons in their daily operations. The waste oil generated during these processes is normally washed off with water. However, for environmental safety, the oil must be separated from the water before disposal.
In some cases, waste oil can contaminate your coolants or cutting fluids. This lowers the efficiency of your machines and can cause lasting damage.
Oil skimmers provide a cost-effective way of separating oils and hydrocarbons from denser fluids. In this article, we will define the principles and uses of oil skimmers in industrial settings….
There will always be times when large bodies of water get contaminated due to natural or man-made disasters, broken pipes, deliberate tampering etc. In such cases, the water then needs to be decontaminated for it to be fit for human consumption. Water treatment plants usually handle the decontamination and treatment process for large quantities of water.
In the water treatment plant, the water is adequately treated before it is finally discharged to the public for consumption. However, if you are considering managing a water treatment plant, asides from having stellar equipment like oil centrifuges and industrial filtration systems, there are five …
Industrial filtration is crucial to many different fields and industries. It is used both to separate particles and substances from liquids as well as to lengthen the lifespan of manufacturing equipment. From restaurants and schools to automotive and hydroelectric plants, industrial filters play an important role in treating oils, water, and coolants.
Here we take a look at a few of the different types of industrial filtrations.
The filtration of wastewater can be achieved by employing the use of a sludge dewatering system. This separates solids from liquids and results in clean …
Diesel engines are known for their robust design and resilience. A well-maintained diesel engine can provide you with optimal performance for thousands of kilometres. Yet, even the toughest equipment needs to be treated well.
A neglected diesel engine can suffer costly damages and premature failure. If you want your diesel engine to serve you well, you should always be on the lookout for the challenges listed below.

1. Water Contamination
The most common challenge leading to the failure of diesel engines is the …
Interfil’s intelligent centrifuges are designed for efficient separation of unwanted particles from wastewater, industrial oils, waste vegetable oils, biodiesel, emulsions, solvents and many other industrial processes. You may have heard of the term centrifuge, but may not necessarily know how it works. Keep on reading to find out.
The basic principle upon which a oil centrifuge works is the difference in density among different fluids and solid particulates. This results in the motor spinning at a very high speed to create intense pressures from the centrifugal force generated.
The Operating Principle
Interfil is one of the leading providers of filtration and innovative industrial technologies in the southern hemisphere. Well known for the design and manufacture of a variety of filters, centrifuges, filtration media, blowers and exhausters. It holds several patents on the technologies it provides. Interfil’s culture of continuous innovation has kept it several steps ahead of its competitors for decades.
While Interfil was officially established in 1986, its true origins can be traced back 30 years prior. In the 1960s, one of Interfil’s founders worked in a liquid filtration and asbestos processing plant. When he became the head engineer of the …
How often do you change your engine oil? Most people change their engine oil every three to six months or when the car clocks 3000-5000miles.The main reason for oil changes is the contamination of the oil following several cycles of use. Contaminants inevitably accumulate in the engine oil and change the physical and chemical properties of the liquid. As a result, the oil becomes less useful in lubricating the engine system and maintaining an efficient hydraulic system. Although an oil change is a good solution, there is a better way to restore your engine oil to its useful state, oil …
The efficient operation of your diesel engine is highly dependent on the quality of your fuel. If your fuel is contaminated, your engine may not operate at its optimal power. Also, depending on the type and degree of contamination, your engine could get seriously damaged. This article highlights the occurrence, hazards and control of water contamination in your diesel fuel.
Is your Diesel contaminated with Water?
The most common indicator that your diesel may be contaminated is …
