Interceptor tanks, also known as oil, grease, and water traps or separators, are crucial components of many drainage systems. They serve to separate wastewater from oil, silt, dirt, and other harmful contaminants, preventing pollution to local watercourses. However, without regular emptying and cleaning, these interceptors can become inefficient and even pose environmental risks.
Interceptor tanks are typically found at sites where vehicles may leak fuel and oil onto the ground. These include fire stations, supermarkets, garage forecourts, car parks, car wash bays, bus depots, and industrial yards where vehicle washing takes place.
The interceptor works by retaining the separated waste in a chamber of the tank for collection. Over time, the run-off from vehicle washing and cleaning activities can cause contaminants to build up in the interceptor. Unless regularly emptied, this build-up can compromise the interceptor’s efficiency and potentially lead to environmental pollution.
The Importance of Regular Interceptor Emptying & Cleaning
Regular interceptor emptying and cleaning is crucial for maintaining the efficiency of your drainage system and protecting the environment. By removing the build-up of contaminants, you can ensure that your interceptor continues to function optimally and prevent harmful substances from polluting local watercourses.
