The Voraxial® Separator is fitted with a patented non-clog, low-shear rotary assembly designed to create a vortex in the fluids flowing through the separator.
By this action, heavier materials (such as solids) are forced to the outside of the vortex while lighter materials (such as oil) are drawn to form the central core of the vortex, thereby creating separated flow streams.
A specially designed manifold is utilized at the exit of the separation chamber to collect the separated streams.

Four Model Sizes
Enviro Voraxial Technology manufactures four different models of the Voraxial® Separator that can process volumes from three to 5,000 gallons per minute. The Voraxial® can be equipped to do 2-way or 3-way separation. Each Voraxial® Separator is custom built to fit each customer's needs. View the models and several applications below or download a pdf brochure here.
The Voraxial® 8000: 1000-5000 GPM
MODEL 8000: The Voraxial® 8000 separates solids and oil from water at a rate of up to 170,000 barrels a day. The uniqueness of the Voraxial® Separator is its ability to separate contaminants, such as oil and sand, from large volumes of liquids and without any pressure drop, enabling it to be utilized in many different applications, both offshore and onshore.
Custom Voraxial® Skid
APPLICATION: The Voraxial® (above) can be easily mated to existing pipeline or equipment, supplied within a complete turnkey solution, or retrofitted into existing water treatment systems to improve the separation efficiency and reduce wastewater costs.
Operators will experience immediate savings in acquisition, installation, operation and maintenance costs.
The Voraxial® provides consistent separation without requiring any adjustments if the inlet oil or sand concentration and flow rate fluctuates. The standard Voraxial® is rated for 250psi and 250F but it can also be built to withstand more pressure or higher temperatures should the application require.
Voraxia®l 4000: 100-500 GPM
MODEL 4000: The Voraxial® 4000 Separator (above) separates solids and oil from water at a rate of up to 17,000 barrels per day. The Voraxial® is installed via a flange connection within the customers' existing pipeline. The fluid pressure is approximately 20-35psi.
APPLICATION: The Voraxial® 4000 Separator (left) processes between 4,000 to 17,000 barrels per day as a pretreatment to provide a consistent influent stream to the IGF.
By installing the Voraxial® as a pretreatment, the customer increased separation efficiency
from: 72% without the Voraxial®
to: 93% separation with the Voraxial®.
By installing the Voraxial® as a pretreatment, the customer increased separation efficiency from 72% without the Voraxial® to 93% separation with the Voraxial®.
APPLICATION: The above Voraxial®, combined with other equipment, is a compact turnkey solution installed on an offshore FPSO.
The customer cannot afford to lose any fluid pressure in completing the separation.
APPLICATION: Two views of a complete turnkey system that includes three Voraxial® Separators working in parallel and in series, separating sand from water at rates of up to 30,000 barrels per day. The Voraxial® system is installed via hose connection to the customers existing system. The fluid pressure is approximately 15psi.
