PECOFacet MPak® oil-water separator plate packs are self-cleaning, but even self-cleaning packs can become plugged with solids under adverse conditions. For this reason, they are designed so that they can be cleaned in place to remove accumulations of solid particles.
Plate type separators that are provided in large modules must be lifted out of the separator by a crane when contaminated with dirt. This is inconvenient and expensive, and it is possible to damage the packs during removal or reinsertion. PECOFacet MPak® plates are designed to be cleaned in place using a special cleaning wand and city water pressure. The wand has a connection just like an ordinary garden hose and is equipped with a small conical strainer in the connection so that solids in the inlet water will not clog the cleaning holes.
