Oil separators Petrol separators Sludge traps
As an importer of high-quality separators, we supply a complete and certified separator program.
To separate mineral oil from water in a simple way, use oil separators. The size of a gasoline separator depends on the amounts of oil and water. Oil separators are used in places where there is a greater chance of discharging mineral oil. Consider, for example, washing passenger cars and trucks. But also at workshops where people work on motor vehicles or at a petrol station.
We offer you a complete and CE certified separator program. All our separators meet the European standard NEN EN 858. This way you are assured of functional and durable products with proven performance and reliability. If desired, we make the necessary capacity calculation for you, of course completely FREE!
Separators for all applications
We supply the right separator for every application. In this way we always offer the best drainage solution. Can be delivered quickly and almost always from stock. We supply the following types of separators:
- Oil separators or oil petrol separators (OBAS) for petrol stations, workshops, garages, washing places, parking areas, storage of hazardous substances to retain sand, sludge and mineral oil in the waste water.
- Sludge traps

- Control / sampling wells
- Oil alarm systems
These oil separators are distinguished by the CE mark. These separators meet the stipulated requirements such as sludge and oil volume.
In addition to the separators, we also supply accessories such as alarm systems that warn you when the maximum oil collection and / or back-up in oil separators has been reached.
The petrol separator
Oil and related oil products such as gasoline and diesel are extremely dangerous and bad for the environment when exposed. Yet it is these oil products that are indispensable to keep our economy running. These products are almost always found in vehicles, such as cars and trucks. Sometimes there will be a leak in the engine and then you can immediately see what damage oil products can cause. A large oil patch with distinctive rainbow colors appears on the road surface and is difficult to remove with water. Try to imagine what if such products end up in the environment and affect water and animals. This is why companies that work with oil products are obliged to use a separator. For example, a petrol separator is widely used in car garages, parking garages, petrol stations and car washes. This prevents petrol and diesel from entering the municipal sewage system or surface water.
How does the gasoline separator work?
Gasoline separators are also referred to as oil separators or hydrocarbon separators. Hydrocarbons are the components in crude oil that must absolutely not end up in open water. These hydrocarbons, together with water and other oil products, are discharged as waste water through a concrete tank, the actual petrol separator. Since the density of these hydrocarbons is much lower than water, they will separate in this well and come to the surface. There is an automatic shut-off valve in the separator. This valve, also called a float, only floats on the water. The water will be discharged via the exit to the sewer or open water. The more oil that enters the tank, the lower the water level will be. As a result, the float will also drop more and more. At a certain point it closes the exit and no more water can be drained. This is a sign that the tank is full of hydrocarbon and needs to be cleaned. There are separators with and without sludge trap. Space is then reserved in the pit for sludge that comes along. If this is not available, a separate sludge trap must be added.
