Separators

  • A Bypass Separator is a tank used in low risk areas such as a car park or roadway and they are designed to treat the first 10% of surface water runoff. The first flush from the surface is typically the most contaminated. The runoff enters the unit where any solids present sink to the bottom and are retained in the first chamber.Oil and water are then passed through to the second chamber where they are partially separated. As rain water builds and the surface water entering the separator exceeds the design flow, further runoff is diverted to bypass the second chamber ...

  • A Full Retention Separator is a tank used in high risk areas such as a car wash or scrapyard where the risk of pollution is high. They are designed to fully retain 100% of the surface water from the drained area resulting from an intensity of 50mm per hour for a period of time long enough for the water and hydrocarbons to separate.Full Retention Separators are fitted with a closure device which prevents the flow passing through the separator when the retained oil exceeds storage volume.
