Oil Interceptor Alarm

Monitoring environmental drainage such as separators, catch pits and sumps is essential if you want to be in control of your site.

Monitoring environmental drainage such as separators, catch pits and sumps is essential if you want to be in control of your site. Since 2005 any new Oil Separator is supplied with a robust oil monitoring alarm to meet BS EN 858-1:2002 and BS EN 858-2:2003. Why not upgrade all equipment to this standard.

Oil Separators can often be left for years without inspection or over cleaned with an empty every 6 months by expensive tankers just to meet environmental audits set out in ISO14001.

An entry level oil separator allows you a simple low cost means to monitor the OIL, SILT & FLOW from your separator allowing you to control your environmental maintenance budget better. Keeping you in control of what you cant see.

Over time hydrocarbons builds up inside a separator real time monitoring this level allows a clean to take place at the optimum time as oil capture is not something you can predict over time. One small oil spill immediately after a clean could leave your separator polluting until the next service.

Another important function of a separator or catch pit is silt control. If your site has traffic especially commercial sites silt can be a major issue. Silt can build up inside the separator preventing it working. The silt can result in localised flooding as rainwater fails to drain through the silt. Cleaning of a silted separator can also be expensive and difficult. If the silt isn’t removed correctly the internal baffles can fail resulting in total separator failure. Our oil / silt monitoring systems will help you stay in control and keep you in control of costs.
