Oil-containing waste is one of the most dangerous types of waste in the list of existing wastes for today. The ingress of petroleum products into water or soil leads to mass death of animals, damage to water and diseases that eventually manifest in humans. Therefore, the issues of recycling and processing of such wastes attracted a lot of attention both at the state level and at the level of individual economic entities. In such cases, the oil purification filters of compressor plants come to the rescue.
The correct classification and recycling of any kind of waste is based on the correct classification. With the aim of systematization of existing wastes in Russia, the Federal Classification Catalog of Waste (FCFC) was created. And although, at first glance, the document is quite simple, it contains all the necessary information for further action. In general, we need to know only the type of waste, according to which in the classifier we find the hazard class. Knowing the hazard class, you can use other regulatory documents that determine the measures for handling the waste of the relevant class.
Transformer oil processing filters of compressor units used with a petroleum product content of not more than 15%, according to the FCCC, belong to the third hazard class. In addition to filters, waste oils also belong to this class of hazard.
Utilization and cleaning of compressor units oil
Collection of used oil purification filters for compressor plants is carried out separately from other waste in special containers. Once the assembly container has been filled, the material can be disposed of for disposal. This is usually done by specialized enterprises or companies that have obtained from the state the right to carry out the corresponding type of activity.
On the Internet, you can find many proposals for the disposal of oily waste, to which the waste oil purification filters of compressor plants also belong. In this case, the main method of utilization is most often called thermal neutralization.
