Oil interceptors are installed in many locations ranging from filling station forecourts through to public car parks.
How it works: Flapstopper Pollution Control Valve
Oil interceptors are capable of separating insoluble oils, such as engine oil and pure diesel from water permitting the output to flow into normal water courses. However, with the introduction of bio-diesel oil interceptors are now defeated as the bio-part of the diesel, usually Ethanol is soluble and emulsifies in the water thus is able to pass through oil interceptors into the environment causing major environmental damage.
The solution we offer eliminates the need to replace existing oil interceptors with Full Retention types. We offer a retro fit fully ATEX certified Zone 1 Flappstopper valve that is inserted in series with the output from the existing interceptor that can be activated at the push of a button to close the interceptor's outlet in less than a second upon the occurance of a spill of bio-diesel - thus locking off the interceptor and protecting the environment.
