How does a separator work?

Oil separators can be fitted to surface water drainage systems to protect the environment from pollution by oils. They work by separating the oil from the water, and then retain the oil safely until it is removed by a licensed Waste Carrier company.

They are installed to contain oil leaks from vehicles and plant and accidental spillages. To be effective, oil separators need to be correctly designed, installed and maintained.

This is where Direct Drainage come in, as we can visit the site to size the appropriate separator, recommend the best location for install and cover the entire installation and ongoing maintenance for peace of mind.
