Oil and petrol separators or hydrocarbon separators are used to separate oil from the waste water. For the following applications, the installation of such separators can be mandatory: carwash installations, petrol stations, parking places for trucks or tractors, garages, etc. . Depending on the kind of surface to be treated (covered or uncovered parking spots, washing places or unloading location, …)  as well as local guidelines, it can be accepted that part of waste water does not entirely go to the separator. In this case, a bypass is installed. This system is most commonly used in outdoor parking garages.


Hydrocarbon separators without bypass

Hydrocarbon separators without bypass treat the drainage of waste water on parking spots. They are recommended for areas used for the unloading of goods or areas with a risk of accidental pollution (e.g. distribution sites, stripping sites, fuel storage) or in vulnerable areas (recycling of industrial waste water, etc.).

Designed according to EN 858, 1-2, they belong to the family of separators in Class 1, with discharge of hydrocarbons smaller than 5mg / liter.

Hydrocarbon separators with bypass

Hydrocarbon separators with bypass are the most installed appliances. Fitted with a completely inspectable bypass (the only one on the market), built into the tank, they provide the drainage on roads and parking spots. The bypass takes care of the distribution of the outflow into the installation and subsequently derives part of it during storms.

Designed according to the  EN858,1 norm, our class 1 separators have an oil discharge of less than 5mg / liter

Alarm systems for oil and petrol separators

The alarm system detects the maximum thickness of the oil layer. According to EU norms (EN 858-1) an alarm is mandatory.
