BMS have just completed an exciting Research & Development (R&D) project in conjunction with the National University of Ireland Galway (NUIG) and are pleased to announce the introduction of the Stormbreaker Defender, a unique ‘plug&play’ vortex silt/solids/oil separator system which can be used to clean surface water before discharge.

The Stormbreaker Defender is an Irish designed and manufactured product which had many unique features;

  • It is delivered to site ‘ready to go’ and does not require extra supports such as a concrete surround or a manhole to be fitted in.
  • The largest unit is 2.3 m in diameter, this means that it will fit on a standard truck for transport of in a container for export.
  • Units are designed for flows from 1-300 l/s and offer a unique removal efficiency arrangement at average flows as well as solids retention at peak flows.
  • BMS can provide comprehensive design, performance and back up data.  BMS can also provide design/selection advise to Engineers and Planners.

The BMS Stormbreaker Defender is a low footprint storm water interceptor capable of removing particles, floating debris and floating pollutants such as oil/hydrocarbons and contaminated settling solids from surface or storm water.  The Stormbreaker Defender can be used up or down stream of surface water holding systems and attenuation/holding ponds as a means of pollutant removal.

The system has no moving parts and utilises natural vortex flow hydrodynamics to remove particles.  It has a unique internal geometry to capture floating pollutants and debris as well as minimise head-losses across the chamber.

The Stormbreaker Defender is just one element of BMS ‘one stop shop’ for surface water treatment including attenuationinterceptorsholding tanks (incl. chemical resistant)hydrobrakes, rainwater harvesting tanks/filters & fully fitted pumps and sumps and much more.
