Contributing to minimising water contamination and in support of clean water supplies, Rocla Southern Africa, in collaboration with Alltrap Engineering, has introduced a range of separators, filters and purifiers to separate grease, oil and petrochemicals from industrial and commercial effluent.
Alltrap Engineering is the local importer of the ecoTechnic® range of products from Austria and Rocla has designed a range of concrete tanks to suit the specifications of the ecoTechnic products available. The product range includes ecoLine_b, ecoSep and ecoSorp, for different applications, as well as ecoStop, which is a petroleum spill control system designed for use at any site where the risk of a petroleum spill exists (at petrol and other fuelling facilities, electrical transformers, generators and oil storage areas).
Jennifer Webb, operations manager at Alltrap Engineering, says, “By using the ecoTechnic range of products for specific applications, organisations can save on costs and meet tomorrow’s standards today. The goal is to protect our clean water supply and achieve high efficiency oil and petrol / water separation cost-effectively.”
To complement the oil and petrochemical separators, Rocla has developed a range of gravity grease separators. Grease, which is typically part of the effluent from restaurant kitchens, is generally made up of larger, more buoyant particles than oil and petrol and can therefore be separated effectively using efficient gravity separation.
