Oilsafe Separators for water contaminated with oil

oil safe separators

Oil Safe Separators

The Oil Safe range of separators are designed where free floating oils are present and outflow typically from yards, hardstandings or higher risk areas can outflow to surface drains or watercourses.

Constructed from GRP they are available as a standard supply for areas of between 200M2 and 5500M2 or built to order for bespoke or specialist applications.

The tanks are designed for where there is a risk of contamination with oil or a foreseeable risk of significant spillages, such as a breakers yard, maintenance facility or an area where oils are stored.

Our oil Safe separators have at least one 600mm access chambers so that when installed they are neatly concealed yet accessible, under a standard 600mm cover and lid*

Dia (mm)made to order
Inlet110/150/200
Height (mm)made to order

In applications where the outflow is higher than the tank, the outflow is higher than the tank, the separator can be used in conjunction with a Morclean pumping chamber or pumping station.

Specification and technical details are available on request.

Please note the oil separators are not suitable for vehicle wash bay applications.

The EA and SEPA Pollution Prevention Guidelines (PPG) which are jointly produced by the Environment Agency for England and Wales, the Scottish Environment Protection Agency, and the Environment and Heritage Service for Northern Ireland (Ref PPG3 / PPG13 / PPG4 / PPG 14) suggest that Class 2 wash bay silt traps and interceptors should be connected only to a mains foul drain, and Class 1 separators to surface drain.

The above assumes you have the consent to connect any outflow to a suitable drain as per the appropriate PPG Guideline. While we always endeavour to provide best advice and accurate information, it the responsibility of the client and/or landowner to comply with the law. Following any guideline doesn’t remove your responsibility to comply with the law and prevent pollution from your activities. Causing or allowing pollution is a criminal offence; compliance with any guidance isn’t a defence. You should make sure that the references to other sources of guidance are still current.

3. Requirements for all vehicle washing and cleaning activities

Activities that produce run-off from the vehicle onto the ground and use cleaning and valeting products should be carried out in areas that are clearly marked and isolated from surface water drainage systems, unmade ground and porous surfaces. These areas are called designated washing bays.

A designated washing bay should be designed so that run-off is:

  • isolated using channels, gullies, gradient (fall on the surface) and kerbs
  • directed to a silt trap or settlement tank to remove larger particles of silt and sediment
  • either collected in a sealed system for reuse, discharged to the public foul sewer with prior permission
  • of the local sewer provider or collected in a sealed system for authorised disposal

You should also:

  • have procedures for everyone, including contractors, that cover where and how vehicle washing and cleaning should be carried out and what to do in a spillage emergency
  • provide notices for designated washing bays saying what they’re for and that washing and cleaning should only be carried out in the bay
  • consider whether a fence or barrier is required to prevent spray or wind drift out of the designated area
  • have procedures and equipment which minimises water use and solid waste production
