  • Service Stations
  • Asphalt Plants

The StormProtector is the most widely used separator where it is acceptable to treat the first flush and normal flows up tov6.5mm/hr rainfall. This covers approximately 90% of all rainfall events in Australia. Any excess rainfall is by-passed without treatment.

These are used when it is considered an acceptable risk not to provide full treatment for high _lows, for example, where the risk of a large spillage and heavy rainfall occurring at the same time is small. They are especially suitable for situations where the main requirement is to trap spillages.

The StormProtector is the first by-pass separator certified to BS EN 858-1.

TYPICAL SITES AND RANGE

200/300 series the popular range of StormProtector for small to medium parking areas associated with smaller supermarkets and industrial estates.

400 series large capacity StormProtector for supermarkets, hypermarkets and large vehicle parking areas, industrial complexes, docks, airport aprons etc.

500/600 series the largest StormProtector range, for catchment areas from eight hectares upward to in excess of 30 hectares. Details are supplied against specific schemes.

Class 1

Class 1 separators, which are designed to achieve a concentration of less than 5mg/l of oil under standard test conditions, should be used when the separator is required to remove very small oil droplets, such as those arising from car park runoff.

Features

  • Good access to all parts for desludging.
  • Large and fully accessible primary chamber for silt capacity and its removal.
  • Outlet junction chamber-approved sampling point.
  • Dip pipe inlet for minimum turbulence and to prevent inflammable vapours passing upstream in drainage system.
  • Most models can provide a choice of nine different inlet/outlet orientations to suit site drainage lay-out (check before specifying).
  • Protect unit/s incorporated within the main separation chamber provide an efficient coalescing separation process to reduce the hydrocarbon content in the outlet to 5mg/litre or less. These strong stainless steel units incorporate robust high volume reticulated foam inserts. The inserts efficiently coalesce the finer globules of hydrocarbons for gravity separation and due to their large volume, last for long periods before requiring cleaning.
  • Cleaning is then a simple operation using normal pressure water. The inserts can be reused again and again, rarely requiring replacement.
  • Handle and/or lifting retaining cables with security fixing provided with each coalesce unit (see optional extra systems). See 5.6.
  • Designed for high performance and low maintenance over a long life span.
  • By-pass separator with silt capacity.

Class 2

 

Class 2 separators are designed to achieve a concentration of less than 100mg/l oil under standard test conditions. They are suitable where a lower quality requirement applies, for example where the effluent passes to a foul sewer.

TYPICAL SITES

  • Oil/fuel and handling areas.
  • Industrial yards.
  • Vehicle maintenance and wash down areas.
  • Garage forecourts – forecourt separator Fs2.
