One of the applications the Q-Mag® is used for, is to treat a medium prior to separating oil from it.
In the automotive industry, degreasing baths remove oil and dirt, mainly metal particles, from the car bodies. A large amount of these metall particles are found in the flow into the oil separator and cause problems in separating the oil.Filtration before the oil separator is not possible; the oil will cause problems in the filtration and at the same time the filtration will cause the oil to be emulsified.
In the picture to the left, Q-Mag® is use before the oil separation, to remove metall particles without emulsifying the oil. The result is less problems with dirt in the oil separation and a much more effective separation of he oil.
