Pollution prevention is a vital part of a sustainable plan to manage a clean and compliant pump station, forecourt or any other site that contains a separator system. If not properly maintained you could face legal fines.
Regular separator maintenance is essential to keeping all pollution prevention equipment working at optimum efficiency safeguarding businesses that handle and store oil or other hazardous materials. Sites such as petrol station forecourts, major car parks and hauliers’ yards all have separators that need regular servicing to prevent pollution to the environment.
Our CCTV camera survey vehicles are used to analyse separator pipes, quickly identifying blockages, surface cracks, fractures, displacements and collapsed systems. Our CCTV inspection and reporting equipment is ATEX approved for safe use on Zone 2 hazardous areas, ideal for forecourt works.
Separators are designed to trap harmful substances before they enter the surrounding area. If filters become blocked, apart from the pollution risk, flooding can also be a problem as water cannot run off-site. As part of the maintenance process we will replace blocked filters.
Regularly cleaning gully’s and separators ensure that discharge water does not pollute the surrounding environment.
Separator maintenance, including separator cleaning, is also essential for legislative reasons. This is important for providing the information needed for service log scrutiny during environmental inspections. The Environment Agency standard, PPG3, European standard and EN858-2 both state that separators should be serviced at least twice a year and in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions. We offer one to five-year service contracts for separator maintenance to suit your needs.
Whether you take out a one year or five-year contract with us, you’ll receive the same high standards and professional quality services from our nationwide team on every inspection.
