Features & Range

  • Good access to all parts for desludging.
  • Automatic closure device (ACD) closes the separator off automatically once the maximum storage capacity of light liquid pollutants is reached, eg. major fuel spillage, so preventing them passing into the drain.
  • Tank shell designed in accordance with BS 4994/BS EN 976.
  • Filament wound shells are lightweight, but have great strength and durability and carry a 25 year warranty.
  • Life expectancy in excess of 50 years.
