What kind of pollution control units do we provide?

Pollution control units are designed to contain pollutants of all forms, shutting down drains entirely within seconds at the touch of a button, the activation of an alarm, or even with the receipt of a text message.

At Lanes, we are able to source a number of popular and proven pollution control units to meet the environmental needs of your premises, including:

Bund water control units

These automated pumping systems continually monitor the contents of your bund, automatically detecting the presence of contaminants such as oil and reacting by safely pumping the water out into the surface water drainage system.

These systems provide instant alarm warnings and notifications when contamination is detected, allowing you to stay on top of any problems. They can be instrumental in helping your site maintain the minimum 110% storage capacity of the largest tanks, as required by Environment Agency guidelines.

Aquasentry Interceptor Monitor

Manufactured by Aquasentry, one of the leading providers of environmental solutions, these monitoring systems measure oil and liquid levels within your interceptor, as well as tracking the buildup of silt.

These systems are designed to alert users to potential environmental issues before they actually occur, giving you timely warnings when excessive levels of oil, liquid and silt are reached, ensuring compliance with the Environment Agency’s Pollution Prevention Guidelines.

CheckValve, DrainStopper and FlapStopper

These pneumatically activated pollution control units, developed by Aquasentry, are designed to contain pollutants, oil spills and firewater runoff issues on your site within seconds of an incident occurring.

They can be fitted to outfalls of up to 72”, 24” and 18” respectively, meaning the range includes suitable options for high, medium and low water usage sites.
