Get a Pump Station for Your On-Site Oil/Water Separator System

Oil/Water separators are used at many different types of industrial facilities, and many of them require a pumping system. Romtec Utilities provides pump stations that handle water going to or coming from an oil/water separator, in all types of oily water conditions.

Your Pump Station is Engineered to Meet Your Exact Pumping Needs

Romtec Utilities engineers work with your specific criteria when configuring your pumping system. This can account for water that may include oil like from a spill or it can account for water that is always oily like machine blowdown. Then, Romtec Utilities supplies design documents to communicate how the new system will meet your needs.

Get Pump Stations for Oily Water Faster with Our Prefabrication Processes

Romtec Utilities completes prefabrication of our pump stations for handling oily water. When your pump station arrives, installation is quick and straightforward because we stage deliveries, and most major assemblies arrive ready to simply be set in place.

You Get a 1-Year Warranty for Your Complete Pump Station and Controls

After Romtec Utilities completes the commissioning or start-up of your system, our technician will perform testing and training. With the system fully tested for operation, and handling that specified water condition onsite, Romtec Utilities will warranty the entire station, typically for 1 year.

Oily Water Projects

Tesoro Oil and Water Separator Pump
Tesoro Corporation | Oil/Water Separator Stormwater Pump Station
400 GPM | 30′ TDH

A remote Tesoro Corporation industrial site needed this stormwater pump station to handle water discharged from an oil/water separator which processes on-site runoff. Submersible centrifugal pumps were used in a duplex configuration in this shallow wet well. The 7.5 hp Ebara explosion-proof pumps were sized to meet low flow, medium head conditions for stormwater. Check valves and plug valves were integrated into the discharge piping in the well for a simple and cost-effective design. The precast concrete wet well and the access hatch are both pedestrian rated.

British Petroleum Cherry Point Refinery | Industrial Stormwater Runoff
350 GPM | 30′ TDH

This package lift station handles the medium flows of stormwater and process water drainage at this oil refinery. A stormwater plan is required at most industrial facilities and BP proactively chose a reliable lift station to manage its environmental footprint. Duplex submersible centrifugal pumps and a below grade valve assembly comprise the major underground components of this system. An outdoor control panel utilizes float controls and an ultrasonic transducer for primary and backup liquid level-sensing.

Boardwalk Pipeline Partners
Boardwalk Pipeline Partners | Midstream Pipeline Stormwater Pump Station
100 GPM | 11′ TDH

The City of Los Angeles needed to construct a new 54” force main to increase sewer capacity and add redundancy to an existing 48” force main at Marina del Rey.

Union Pacific Railroad | Replacement Sewer Collection System
100 GPM | 22′ TDH

The Union Pacific Depot in Cheyenne, Wyoming needed two new sewer lift stations to replace its existing sewer collection system. Romtec Utilities was the lift station of choice because five lift station packages were developed in conjunction with the goals and plans of CH2MHILL and its customer Union Pacific Railroad.

Dow Chemical Company
Dow Chemical Company Louisiana Operations | Prefabricated Pump Station
8500 GPM | 32′ TDH

This package pump station was designed to respect the confidentiality of this industrial facility. The entire system was delivered with much of the hardware preinstalled in the fiberglass wet well to facilitate simple, “drop-in” installation.

Mitsubishi Chemical Carbon Fiber and Composites
Mitsubishi Manufacturing | Identical Stormwater Pump Stations
500 GPM | 15′-15.3;′ TDH

A Mitsubishi manufacturing plant in Sacramento, California needed two new matching pump stations to handle low-flows of stormwater from an on-site treatment system.
