Voraxial separators are used for separating oil, water, and/or solid mixtures. A Voraxial separator produces vortex via impeller with the water and solids drawn to the outside and the oil drawn to the center, forming a core. A manifold is used to collect the separated streams at the outlet.  

It can operate with low inlet pressures and typically requires no pressure drop. It is also not as sensitive as a hydrocyclone to flowrate and surge. 

It is a compact unit with small footprint with variable speeds for optimize separation.
