Servicing your separator
Servicing your separator/oil interceptor on a regular basis is important to safeguard businesses that handle and store oil/other potentially hazardous materials – such as petrol station forecourts, haulage yards and car parks – from flooding and environmental pollution.
Separators are designed to trap harmful substances before they can contaminate the surrounding environment, but if the systems are not serviced and become blocked, apart from the risk of pollution, flooding can also be a major problem as water is unable to run off-site.
Separator maintenance, including separator cleaning, is also essential for legislative reasons. The Environment Agency Standard, PPG3, and the European Standard, EN858-2, both emphasise that separators should be serviced at least twice a year and in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.
