Interceptor Cleaning

What is an Interceptor?

What is an Interceptor?

Interceptors are very common drainage installations on many sites. In order to make sure that they avoid blockage and pollution, frequent interceptor cleaning is very important.

BKP Waste & Recycling Ltd can provide an interceptor cleaning service to keep your interceptors in a clean and well maintained manner. If you would like more information regarding this service or any of our other cleaning services, please give our friendly team a call on 0800 376 5004.

Interceptors or separators are designed to act as storage vessels to allow hydrocarbons to separate from water and allow the water to discharge to the approved outfall under gravity.

There are two types of interceptors. They are known as bypass interceptors and full retention interceptors.

  • Bypass interceptors.
    The bypass interceptor can only be used for low risk sites where there is NO risk of any spillages or erratic flows, such a site could be a car park or a hard-standing.
  • Full retention interceptors.
    The full retention interceptor is used for high risk sites where spillages can occur, such as petrol stations.

Interceptors are available in various sizes and are not just for hydrocarbon separation. They can be used to separate slurries from marble/granite cutting facilities, grease separation from industrial canteens and food processing facilities.

The importance of strict health & safety policies!

We will, as far as is reasonably practicable ensure that the work environment is safe. We achieve this by treating the statutory requirements as the minimum standards. All employees and other third parties who are affected by any of the work performed by BKP Waste & Recycling Ltd will be informed about potential hazards and the required precautions that must be adopted.
