All manner of projects, both large and small, are required to maintain compliance with all environmental rules and regulations concerning property drainage. As an aspect of compliance, it is essential that the appropriate separators are deployed in order to meet or exceed the drainage demand but to also comply with the ongoing project demands such as cost and time. Kingspan Klargester offers a wide range of fully compliant Fuel and Oil Separators that meet environmental regulations and when combined with our experienced product experts, we can help select the right solution that provides value for you and your project.
The determination for use of a fuel and oil separator is based on the specific application of the property and not necessarily on size. Combined guidelines from the Environment Agency of England and Wales, The Scottish Environmental Protection Agency and the Environment and Heritage Service of Northern Ireland specify when fuel and oil separators are required. These are:
- Car Parks, for more than 50 vehicles or 800msquare.
- Car Parks of any size in a sensitive environment.
- Any location where good transport is parked or maneuvered.
- Maintenance areas.
- Roads or Motorways.
- Sites where oil is used or stored.
- Refueling facilities.
- Any location at risk of contamination from oil or fuel.
Kingspan Klargester Fuel and Oil Separator Types
There are three types of Kingspan Klargester Fuel and Oil Separators for consideration. The first type is the full retention separator that is designed to manage the complete flow of drainage from the site or a flow rate of 65mm/hr, under standard conditions. The second type are Bypass Separators and these manage a flow rate up to 6.5mm/hr and if the flow exceeds this limit, the flow bypasses the separator system. The last type of separator is the Forecourt Separator. This type of separator is designed for installation in petrol filing station forecourts and similar applications. Forecourt separators can contain a spillage up to 7,600L.
Getting The Right Separator
Naturally, to provide the optimal separator, some factors require consideration. Our separator designs are based on non-impeded flows from external pipework, therefore, the factors to be considered are;
- Calculated flow rate for the area drained.
- The necessary discharge standard.
- Drain invert inlet depth
- All necessary pipework, type, size, and orientation.
