Alarm System For Oil Separators
Oil separators (Interceptors) are typically installed in drainage systems below ground. They are designed to trap oil and other hydrocarbons that have entered drains, preventing pollution incidents. If oil, silt or liquid reaches excessive levels, oil can pass through the separator and pollute watercourses which may result in expensive fines and clean up costs for the owner.
European Standard EN858-1 suggests separators are fitted with an alarm that warns of excessive liquid levels, and for the alarm to be fitted, tested, commissioned and serviced by a competent installer.
Mains powered separator alarm
Ideal for new build sites or where mains supply is readily and easily available making installation efficient and cost effective. This unit has an audible alarm and a liquid crystal display and is operated by means of a simple Push switch. An output relay is provided which allows the use of an external sounder or beacon and can also be connected to your building management system (BMS).
Solar powered separator alarm
Ideal for retro fitting to existing separators or on sites where power is not easily accessible. The Solar Alarm removes the need for digging ducts and laying long cable runs, making installation efficient and cost effective.
The standard system is supplied complete with an intrinsically safe control unit together with a high oil probe and a steel mounting stand. The control unit is capable of monitoring up to 6 probe units in 2 separator tanks (3 probes per tank), to automatically monitor oil, silt and liquid levels notifying immediately when the separator needs emptying and therefore eliminating unnecessary waste management visits.
The status of the probes is displayed via a liquid crystal display which can be customised to display your messages.
There are 2 Solar Alarms available from ATG, the Beacon System alerts the user by means of a flashing amber xenon beacon, alternatively there is the GSM System which will alert the user via mobile phone text messaging.
