The Draintector is a pollution containment device which can be used to seal off your drainage preventing pollution from leaving site. Spills, fires or high risk events e.g. fuel or chemical deliveries pose a major risk to the environment, by installing a Draintector you ensure you have the ability to quickly seal your drainage and prevent an environmental incident. It is installed in your drains at a critical compliance point and prevents pollutants from entering the local environment.
The Draintector can be activated manually, remotely or automatically.
Manually: Push a button on the control panel which is hard wired to the Draintector.
Remotely: Push a button on a control panel anywhere on site which connects to the Draintector via telemetry.
Automatic: Activation methods can be designed bespoke for most site specific needs, common automatic activations methods include oil sensors, pH sensors, lactometers, fire alarms and high/low water level alarms
“Drain pipe seals
Pipe seals can be used within a drainage system to prevent the escape of spillages from the temporary containment area, which can have the added advantage of using the pipe-full storage capacity of the pipe network.”
“Shut-off valves and penstocks can isolate part or the whole of a site’s drainage system. They can help retain a spill on site…… They may be operated manually on site or triggered by automatic sensors.”
