Case Study

How would your pollution containment system react to an emergency?

Following a pollution event a UK car plant operated its pollution containment penstock valve. The full spill response took over 20 minutes to isolate the valve. On full closure of the penstock valve, it was apparent that the flow off site did not stop.

Sandfield Penstock Solutions were asked to look at the operation of the system and deliver a scheme to improve the response time and achieve full isolation.

Our team looked at the current penstock valve and recommended replacement with a full stand alone Toggleblok™ system with a control link to the security office.

The site repeated a spill scenario using Toggleblok™ and a total stop to the site drainage was achieved in less than 20 seconds.

Testimonials

"I was introduced to Sandfield about six years ago when the company I worked for asked me to look at the installation of some new penstock valves and servicing of our pollution control valves across the group sites. After talking to Sandfield and meeting their engineers we gave Sandfield our UK service contract.

We then went on to install Toggleblok valves as we were impressed by how it all worked with a minimum amount of civil work required in most instances.

I have recommended Sandfield Penstock Solutions' Toggleblok to many companies over the last few years. They have a very professional and effective approach to water and waste control systems."

"Working with Sandfield allowed us to use existing site topography and drainage systems to maximise emergency containment  on site, creating meaningful quick response scenario’s which are easily communicated to, and understood by regulatory bodies, emergency services and on site staff. We now satisfy our legal duties set out in our operational permit and under COMAH regulations.

During site operation we have confidence that we are able to cope with emergency situations around the clock. Sandfield Penstock Solutions have installed systems, which are not overly complicated and allow for rapid troubleshooting when faults are found during routine testing and planning for alternative arrangements when issues occur."
