The Flapstopper has been designed to effortlessly mitigate spill and firewater incidents.
The FlapstopperTM has been designed to effortlessly mitigate spill and firewater incidents, taking in-drain containment being taken to the next level with this dual purpose emergency management tool.
Manufactured from Stainless Steel, the FlapstopperTM can be used for more industrial spills than bladder systems. The FlapstopperTM is completely retro-fittable, already being used in chemical environments; locations where medias may cause bladders to perish, and ATEX areas where a more hardy product is required.
Presenting the end user with choice and flexibility, the control panel can be operated by mains electric, or a solar panel, which can be as small as 10W. The solar option allows use of the FlapstopperTM in hard to reach sites, or in locations where it is not cost-effective to run mains power to.
The FlapstopperTM can be activated manually via a push button on the control panel allowing the end user to have total control over their system. Alternatively, it can be remotely controlled using worker operated call points, fire alarm detection equipment, or a range of condition detecting probes, e.g. oil interceptor alarms. Activation rapidly closes the valve in the man-hole or outflow in less than 5 seconds significantly reducing the risk of contamination, enabling the FlapstopperTM to be a market leader in its field.
The FlapstopperTM can be made for a number of installation situations, with our in-line design fitting gullies in manholes, to our wall-mounted version which fits over outflows or in situations where a flush fitting to the wall is needed. Should the need for a flanged FlapstopperTM valve be needed, please talk to us to discuss the options available.
The FlapstopperTM has been designed to bring a site in to line with a number of UK and EU environmental Legislations, including: EA PPG 3,7,8,13, and 18 (managing fire water and major spills).
Automating or Remotely Operating your Valves.
Using a wireless call point to remotely activate your In-drain containment will allow any user to activate the system in an emergency. Not only this, but it can also be used to activate and de-activate the system on a more user friendly basis. This may be when you have a delivery for example, or alternatively when a tanker is refuelling.
Utilising a number of call points around a site can ensure the site is fully risk assessed and proactive in their approach rather than reactive.
See out wireless call point page for more details
Using a pH probe to monitor your surface water outfalls may be required if you looking to fulfill your discharge permit. Monitoring the level of pH will ensure that all discharges are well within your permitted levels and will also provide evidence to prove this. A pH probe can automate your containment system, closing the valves on detection of a high or low pH. This isolation of site, and then alarming of the fact will mean your site could avoid heavy fines or prosecutions.
Dairies, fromageries, and creamery’s make up a good portion of our clients due to the fact that a milk spill can be worse than oil. Milk is high in protein, and as it enters the surface water drainage systems can spur phenomenal growth of algae and bacteria. As a result this significantly reduces the dissolved oxygen in the water to dangerous levels.
The unit can be used to automate a FlapstopperTM valve to mitigate the effects of such a spill, giving your business piece of mind whatever the activities on site. Numerous notification process can be added to this system along with a logging mechanism. Most sites require different usage, which can be accommodated quite easily with our bespoke systems.
Oil interceptor and separators should be alarmed. This is not only for evidence and good practice, but to ensure your interceptor is being managed and serviced efficiently and cost-effectively. Our interceptor alarms can tell you when your interceptor needs servicing, whilst time and dates stamping bills of good health.
