This style of interceptor should be used when light or infrequent contamination of petrol and oil may occur.
Bypass interceptors differ to full retention as they may not treat and contain all of the pollutant flushed through the system, especially in storm conditions. When a storm flow occurs, the bypass interceptor will contain some contaminants but will allow the excess flows through without prohibiting full bore flow. For this reason, a bypass interceptor is used for smaller locations, where flow calculations allow.
Bypass Interceptors are suitable options for: Smaller Car Parks, Industrial Estates, Roads and Highways, Small manufacturing units.
Environmental Innovations can specify, and survey for the specification of a Bypass Interceptor. We can also install these units for you, and intergrate them into existing drainage networks. Being in control of your sites surface water discharges can bring you in line with various environmental regulations and best practices.
