Oil separators are made of polyethylene, which is suitable for clean water and fecal matter.
In accordance with EU directives, oil separators are installed on everything:
at gas stations,
open and closed parking lots.
They are intended for the extraction of light water according to European standards SIS EN 858-1 and prEN 858-2.
Atmospheric water mixed with oil and mudflows from asphalt and concrete surfaces into the sewer system or into nature. Oil separators are designed to clean water from mud and oil. For optimal effect, a two-chamber tank is most often used. The first part of the tank is used as a settling tank , and in the second part the oil separates from the water.
Inside the Reservoir
Inside the separator, the sludge is separated as follows:
With oil and mud, dirty water enters the tank.
Using a specially patented water distribution system, the water is evenly distributed throughout the tank.
Long chamber, where it is already purified from sludge.
Under the second part of the tank the oil is separated from the water.
With a specially patented system for distribution of water, water and oil are evenly distributed throughout the tank. Larger oil droplets are on the surface, due to the high density. Smaller droplets combine and increase in volume in the filter, and rise to the surface. This makes it easier for companies engaged in cleaning waste oils.
The water that flows out of the separator is pure-purified water.
The excavation should be about 50 cm larger than the dimensions of the separator.
A layer of sand must go next to the tank, and it is gradually buried.
It is necessary to check the terrain under the tank, it must be well trodden.
Separator placed on a lower level, must be protected by a reinforced structure.
It is necessary to make sure that there are no sharp objects that would damage the tank.
Instructions for installation on site with groundwater
Due to groundwater, the oil separator must be fixed, ie anchored. At the bottom of the pit, it is necessary to concrete a concrete slab with anchoring threads. The tank must be connected to anchor with polyester strips.
Fill the entire system with water due to the perfect operation of the separator, high groundwater that could lift the tank. Secure clean sensors in the electronic alarm device.
