According to the Environment Agency’s PPG3 guidelines, all separators must be provided with a robust device to provide visual and audible warning (if necessary to a remotely located supervisory point) when the level of oil reaches 90% of the oil storage volume. This automatic warning device indicates that the separator is in need of immediate emptying for it to continue to work effectively.
Conder can supply a full range of visual and audible warning devices including: mains powered, solar powered alarms (with flashing beacon) or solar GSM (sends txt message to a mobile phone of your choice). Three probes are fitted in the separator to automatically monitor the oil, silt and liquid levels. The probes will also indicate exactly when the separator needs emptying, eliminating unnecessary waste management visits.
If site conditions permit, the control can be used to monitor multiple probes in a number of different separators.
Mains powered system
This option is best suited to new build situations or sites where installation of the necessary cabling and ducting is straightforward and economical.
Solar powered system – flashing beacon
This option requires no mains power supply or any significant cabling and ducting making it economical for large sites and retro fitting alarms to existing oil separators. A high intensity beacon will flash when a problem is detected.
Solar GSM alarm
The Solar GSM alarm sends a status report of your separator to a mobile phone number of your choice. The status of the GSM alarm can also be tested at any time by simply sending a pre-recorded text message via your dedicated mobile phone.
