We still have a few more questions to answer as regards Petrol/Oil Interceptors (Separators), next up; What is the difference between a Class 1 and Class 2 Separator?

Petrol/Oil Separator:
Another word used to describe an interceptor.

Class 1 Interceptor:

Designed to achieve a concentration of 5 mg/l of petrol/oil at discharge under normal conditions, includes a coalescer.  A Class 1 Interceptor is usually required for discharge to any surface water.

Class 2 Interceptor:
Designed to achieve a concentration of 100 mg/l of petrol/oil at discharge under normal conditions.  Normally used when discharge is to a foul sewer.

BMS have introduced a full set of Petrol Interceptor/Holding Tank Sizing & Selection Charts to help you easily size and select an Interceptor/Holding Tank suitable for your requirements. They can be downloaded at this link.
