Fuel interceptor 

Fuel interceptor
  • must be cleaned once yearly due to environmental laws
  • keeps rainwater systems flowing

Fuel interceptors are installed into areas where there is a high risk of fuel contamination to our sewers, water plants and natural watercourses. Fuel interceptors are an essential piece of kit as they separate oil and fuels from wastewater produced on your site.

Fuel Interceptors are commonly found within car parks and rainwater systems. The environment agency recommends that fuel interceptor emptying is carried out every six months to avoid blockages and prevent pollution of your drainage systems. Fuel interceptors work as a final defence against polluting sewage and watercourse systems, so it’s crucial the installation and maintenance are correct to reduce the risk of flooding and contamination.

Fuel interceptor cleaning & emptying

Regular fuel interceptor cleaning ensures your site is running efficiently, minimising the potential of downtime in an emergency due to pollution or drainage problems. If you do not have a fuel interceptor cleaning regime in place you run the risk of your interceptors not fully functioning and if there were to be a spill, you are at risk of being prosecuted.
