Fuel and oil interceptors will usually be found in locations where vehicles or plant may leak fuel and oil onto the ground; such as petrol station forecourts, carparks, garages, distribution depots, factories and car or truck washes. They are a seldom noticed but essential piece of equipment, as they separate oil and fuels from wastewater produced on your site, preventing contamination of the drainage network. The Environment Agency recommends that interceptors are cleared every six months to avoid blockages and prevent pollution of your drainage systems and the environment around your site. We can carry out regular, hassle-free interceptor emptying services to help you with you this.
Regular interceptor emptying ensures that these vital oil and water separation units comply with industry best practice and remain free of litter, grit and other debris. Our operatives are trained to use specialised de-watering vehicles which separate the silt and oil from the water in your interceptor and recharge the grey water straight back into the interceptor, making it a more environmentally beneficial and cost-effective process.
