Oil Separator (Interceptor) Maintenance

Regular separator maintenance (formally known as interceptors) is essential to safeguard businesses that handle and store oil or other hazardous materials – such as petrol station forecourts, major car parks and hauliers’ yards – from on-site flooding and pollution to the environment.

Separators are designed to trap harmful substances before they enter the surrounding area, but if they are not serviced and become blocked, apart from the pollution risk, flooding can also be a problem as water cannot run off-site.

Separator maintenance, including separator cleaning, is also essential for legislative reasons, providing the information needed for service log scrutiny during environmental inspections. The Environment Agency standard, PPG3 and European standard, EN858-2, both state that separators should be serviced at least twice a year and in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions. Adler & Allan offer one to five year service contracts for separator maintenance.

Adler & Allan has a highly experienced team of experts who can specify, supply, install and service standard or bespoke oil separators (interceptors), including full retention and forecourt separators, to the most stringent standards.
