About SeparatorsSeparators do what their name suggests – separate out from drainage/run-off waters contaminants that need to be removed before the drainage adversely affects the environment (whether a watercourse or the local groundwater) and/or your drainage system and equipment. Contaminants may include substances such as grease, oil, dissolved oil, petrol, detergents, degreasers or trade effluents.
Where the run-off is coming from a relatively low risk area (e.g. car-park) then what is known as a 'source control approach' using techniques such as permeable surfaces or infiltration trenches might be enough to offer sufficient protection to the local environment and thus obviate the need for a separator system. There are a variety of separator systems available for various business needs and these are explained at length within this site, plus helpful links to the Environment Agency website.
