Como Filtration Systems



Model TS3 Tramp Oil Coalescer Separator COMO designed a line of Coalescer-Separators to remove tramp oil from machine tool coolant, wash water, and other water-based fluid mixtures.


COMO's Coalescer-Separators provide:

  • More separation volume and coalescing media than comparative systems
  • Lower separation velocity and higher flow rates than comparative systems
  • A micro adjustable conical oil outlet weir that allows visual inspection of oil quality and dryness
  • A stainless steel handle that keeps your hands dry
  • A COMO skimmer head that effectively removes the oil or other light immiscible fluids from the surface of the water
  • Fluid filtration up to 180° F with a range in pH from 3 to 11
  • Flow rates ranging from 3 to 20 gallons per minute

A COMO Coalescer-Separator can help you solve the following problems:

  • Residue on finished parts
  • High fluid disposal costs
  • High fluid replacement costs
  • Short fluid life
  • Foul odors
  • Dermatitis
  • Strict EPA regulations

Standard Models:

  • Model TS3 - 3 GPM Pump (Pictured Above)
  • Model TS5 - 5 GPM Pump
  • Model TS10 - 10 GPM Pump
  • Model TS20 - 20 GPM Pump

Additional options available on COMO's Coalescer-Separators:

  • Bacterial control with ozone Injection
  • Portable or free standing

COMO's Coalescer-Separators work by applying the following two physical principles:

Gravity field separation of immiscible fluids

Fluid mixtures naturally separate along the field of gravity, and droplets can readily coalesce when they reach the interface between the fluids. The media in COMO’s Coalescer-Separators divides the separation volume into smaller segments that are perpendicular to the field of gravity, effectively reducing the distance, and travel time, between a suspended droplet and the interfacial region.

Selective molecular attraction

Moreover, the media in COMO's Coalescer-Separators is made of oleophilic (oil attracting) materials. Therefore, suspended oil droplets attach to the media and flow upward, coalescing with other droplets, until they are large enough to separate from the media. This ensures that the oil droplet will be removed in the Coalescer-Separator volume rather than be flushed out of the unit.
