Getting the mastery of pollution – and save money!
The ‘fully automatic’ system maintains the SPEL Separator at peak performance 24/7 and safeguards surface water outfalls from breaching consent levels. In addition the hydrocarbon pollutants are skimmed from the surface in the SPEL Separator and transferred to a SPEL containment tank.
The separated and contained fuel/oil has a value and can be sold or reused e.g. fire training grounds. This has resulted in cost savings of 90% over the traditional emptying method with actual savings of £10,000 per annum.
Specifying a separator? Consider the cost of maintenance first
With the increasing demand for large SPEL Stormceptor® by-pass separators, SPEL Puraceptor® full retention class 1 separators etc, to cater for catchment areas up to 30 hectares, the periodic emptying of pollutants and sludge can be extremely costly and therefore must be considered with a long term view.
Tank emptying contractors will often prefer to remove the entire contents of a large separator involving up to several thousand pounds a year in tankerage and administration costs.
With the SPEL Econoskim System the tank emptying contractor is only required to remove the liquid pollutants from the SPEL Tankstor containment tank. The light liquid pollutants have a minimum of water volume and therefore the emptying contractor’s disposal costs are dramatically reduced.
