SPEL Puraceptor is a full retention separator that treats all flows. It is to be sized to contain more than the anticipated maximum oil spillage — enabling it to be fully operational in treating stormwater runoff at all times. It has two chambers, a coalescer and is fitted with an automatic closure device specifically designed to contain major oil spills, thereby making it suitable for high-risk applications. It achieves a water discharge quality of less than 5mg light liquids per litre, complying with European Standard BS EN 858.1. 2006. Treatable flow rates range from 2LPS to 200LPS. Pipe sizes range from 100mm to 450mm (larger sizes on request).
The Automatic Closure Device (A.C.D.) is precisely engineered to be sensitive to any change in water density, as a consequence of light liquids build up. This automatically activates a process of depressing the A.C.D. to shut off the separator, preventing pollutants from discharging to drains and waterways
All liquid is treated. There is no by-pass operation.
Provides a coalescing process for the separation of smaller globular light liquid pollutants to reduce the light liquid content in the outlet to 5mg/litre or less.
This provides minimum turbulence and prevents fire and inflammable vapours passing through to the drainage system.
A non-turbulent flow, through two horizontal treatment chamber, utilises the underflow principle to retain light liquids in all flow conditions.
Will function in the event of power failure and fits into existing pipe drainage systems or new sites.
Easy and safe, with no entering of the tank required.
In a single chamber oil-water separator, the Coalescer is exposed to the hydrocarbon spill and therefore treatment efficacy is compromised.
In a spill situation, the single chamber system will not retain the stormwater discharge quality that these systems are installed for.
The single chamber is a cost effective unit for use on service stations, however the application should be carefully selected.
These systems are suitable for use within areas that will not receive direct rainfall (under canopy) as they can only treat low flows.
The other cost to weigh up is that they have no guarantee discharge quality in the situation of a spill.
Two chamber are Better than One!
As the 2 chamber Puraceptor has been tested and proven in Australia, both in the lab and field, it complies with Australian regulations and guidelines and will provide a guaranteed water quality in spill conditions.
Due to the superior Coalescer design and the fact that the Auto Closure Device (ACD) operates as a separate function to the Coalescer, the 2 chamber Puraceptor is the choice of over 99% of sites in Australia.

Coalescer units are easy to maintain and easily washable even without maintenance for years.
It provides a coalescing process for the separation of smaller globular light liquid pollutants to reduce the light liquid content in the outlet to 5mg/litre or less.
