Should I install an alarm with my separator?
As required by The Environment Agency’s PPG 3 Guidelines, all separators must be fitted with an alarm system to provide visual and audible warning when the level of oil reaches 90% of its storage volume. The alarm system is triggered when the separator is in need of immediate emptying to ensure continuous and effective operations.
There are a variety of alarms available, including alarms for internal mounting, external mounting, solar-powered systems and GSM (telemetry) units which send a text message when the alarm is activated. All require different types of installation and vary in cost, but we can advise you on the most appropriate one for your requirements – give us a call on 01388 537030.
