SPEL Fuel/Oil Separators

SPEL Fuel/Oil Separators treat surface water run-offs to remove hydrocarbons, trash and silt. SPEL fuel oil separators cater for a wide range of catchment areas from 200 m² up to over 55 hectares with a single unit.

Pollution Prevention Guidelines

SPEL Separators meet the Environment Agency’s Pollution Prevention Guidelines ‘Use and Design of Oil Separators in Surface Water Drainage Systems PPG 3’. These set out the standards with which separators must comply and assist in deciding on the need for a separator at a site and the size and type that is appropriate.

These pollution prevention guidelines require separators to be tested in accordance with the standard test procedure based upon the European Standard BS EN 858 – 1:2002.

SPEL Separators

Designed for high-performance and long service life between maintenance periods. This is achieved with generous retention times and the unique coalescer units which are the ‘heart’ of the separation process to remove finer globules of hydrocarbons.

The range of separators is from NS (NSB) 3 – NS (NSB) 1000.
