HydroProtector systems are autonomous and gravity operated, therefore will function without electricity. They are engineered to meet the European Standard EN858:1: 2002 and have been independently tested for discharge water quality of less than 5mg/l and also achieve percentage removal rates of nitrogen and phosphorus.
All HydroProtector models are independently certified for hydrocarbon spill capture volumes. Hydraulic testing has been carried out to ensure capacity and flowrate accuracy.
The HydroProtector is a full retention separator that does not allow any liquids to be bypassed, therefore all flows into the unit are treated.
The HydroProtector has an incorporated flame trap, an automatic closure device and is a two chamber design which protects the coalescer that is fitted at the outlet from inundation in the event of a spill.
HydroProtector units are manufactured to treat stormwater flow rates from 2 l/s up to 350 l/s with a maximum pipe size of 750mm.
The rainwater from the connected area is fed into the silt chamber. This section of the tank is designed to retain all forms of sedimentation. Upon entering the tank, the water settles and as this occurs, the sedimentation settles to the bottom of the silt chamber as the water rises.As the water level rises the water reaches an appropriate height to flow into the next section of the HydroProtector. In the dual chamber system, the water flows into the inlet pipe, past the automatic closure device in and into the baffle. The Inlet pipe into the baffle has been designed to prevent the flow of oils into the coalesce unit. This part of the system is only used in high oil risk and fuel risk situations.The water then flows through the baffle into the coalesce unit. This filtration system provides a process to remove smaller contaminants in the stormwater run off to reduce the light liquid output to 5mg/L or less.The cleaned water then passes through the flow director, up into the outlet flow pipe and out into the water systems surrounding the HydroProtector.
FLAME TRAP INLET
The inlet pipe features a flame trap which worksby eliminating air from the liquids entering theprimary chamber
The primary chamber of the Stormprotector isdesigned to slow down and separate pollutantsfrom stormwater runoff, allowing dense particals tosettle at the bottom of the chamber and the lighterfluids and deris to rise to the surface while thecleaner water flows into the secondary chamber forfurther treatment.
Captured hydrocarbons rise to the surface of thestorage chamber and are retained behind a wierwhich stops them from flowing into the secondarychamber without resuspension during high flowevents
OIL PROBE, CONTROL PANEL AND VAPOUR Y SEAL
The oil probe and control panel are crucial componentsin monitoring and maintaining oil spills. The probedetects any oil leaks and sends signals to the controlpanel, which alerts the maintenance team.
The Vapor Y Seal is an essential component installedin control panel conduits to prevent vapours fromescaping the unit. It is designed to maintain theintegrity of the unit and prevent hazardous vapoursfrom escaping into the environment.
SLUDGE WEIR (OPTIONAL)
For unsealed sites with high silt loads Hydroprotectorunits have an integrated sludge weir which preventsthe build up of silt from clogging the outlet of thefirst chamber and facilitates effective sealing of theAutomatic Closure Device in the event of a spill.
AUTOMATIC CLOSURE DEVICE
The automatic closure device is calibrated to floating water and sink in light hydrocarbon liquids. If the maximum oil spill capacity of the primary chamber reached, the device will shut off flow of liquid to the secondary chamber and therefore protecting the environment from a catastrophic event
COALESCER FILTER UNIT
The secondary chamber is fitted with a finely perforated coalescing unit which removes the remaining globules of light liquid to a certified5mg/l. The Coalescing unit is installed on guiderails for ease of installation and maintenance.
