Stormceptor case study lifting

Location: Kwinana WA

Load Rating: Class G

Configuration/SPEL Product: Off Line Stormceptor & SPELOsorb

Model: OL.6480.C1.2CEHD

Inlet/Outlet size: 600mm

Treatment Flow Rate: 400L/sec

Total Volume: 140,000L

Excavation depth: 6m

The Challenge

The three SPEL Stormceptor units need to be designed to cleanse the 1 year, 1 hour storm.

Each Stormceptor also has a SPELOsorb coalescer fitted which targets the water soluble/dissolved fraction of the TPH. This simple retrofit enables the Stormceptors to treat all carbon fractions instead of just the free phase hydrocarbons.

Our Solution

Pipe sizes and flow rates are provided below for each of the units for this design storm.

Unit No. Connecting Pipe Size Treatable Flow Lid Rating Required
1 600 389 l/s G
2 300 79 l/s G
3 300 120 l/s D

SPEL Stormceptor unit no. 1 will also need to be capable of treating flows from a foam fire fighting system. The foam, as we understand,is a 2% high concentrate.
