Process-oriented. Universal. Uncomplicated.

AWAS water treatment systems offer innovation and efficiency. For natural, environmentally friendly recirculation of waste water.

VVS – Supply System to Galaxie Tower

The 4-stage pre separating VVS supply system for gas - oil - sludge - water - mix

Parameters: 5 cbm/h up to 100 cbm/h 

AWAS designed solutions for specific requirements of the oil industry for

  • large quantities of oil with more than 10% up to 50% in the oil-water mixture 
  • high specific weight of oil up to 9,81 kN/m3 
  • higher temperatures of the media
  • low flowability of oil 
  • sludge fraction up to 1% 
  • fine sludge of < 50 mµ 
  • emulsions 
  • gases to be discharged into the atmosphere 

Its development is based on the philosophy of the company AWAS, which includes the use of the laws of nature - here we use the whirl forces - to complete the existing AWAS technologies.   


The integrated AWAS spiral pump achieves an intensive circular flow in the ascending feed pipe to the Galaxie Tower. 

Thus emulsions, oil and gases are twirled centripetally to the middle, the water and the sludge particles are whirled centrifugally outwards. 

Gases flow to the top and are released to the atmosphere.  

Oil flows agglomerated into the upper AWAS Galaxie Tower inlet and then into the oil tank.   

The sludge particles flow agglomerated into the lower Galaxie Tower inlet and then into the sludge filter container or a similar tank. In order to achieve the maximum cleaning performance of a chemical free water treatment, we use as an additional stage the AWAS Affinity separator, which separates smallest free oil droplets and even temporary emulsions.
