SPEL Ecoceptor is a vertically configured pollutant trap, sediment and light liquids separator suitable for low risk applications. The Stormwater Quality Improvement Device (SQID) has a polyethylene or fibreglass unit, and is designed for use in stormwater drains.

Flow rates on standard units are up to 1400 LPS and can fit pipe sizes from 225mm to 1200mm (with additional sizes available on request).

The SPEL Ecoceptor is independently tested and certified for hydraulic efficiency and the capture of pollutants. It separates and captures pollutants, sediments and light liquids (petroleum hydrocarbons). The unique hydraulic treatment pipe is sized to suit specified flow rates. Ecoceptor has a special vortex cleaning action, which assists in preventing pollutants from discharging. The cylindrical shape of the SQID with its tapered base (there are no square corners) affords effective and thorough cleaning out of accumulated pollutants.

Stormwater is treated with the sediment, heavy refuse and gross pollutants captured in the chamber.

In high-flow conditions and if storms persist, the tank contains a by pass operation preventing ‘back up’.

Light liquids rise to the top of the separation region of the Ecoceptor chamber.

Good and easy access through the manhole cover to all parts for desludging. Simple cleaning procedure for vacuum loaders.

Tanks, being factory made fibreglass or polyethelene (depending on size), provide for light and easy maneuvering and substantial labour savings for site installation.

Light self-contained tanks for low transport and cranage costs.
