Thanks to its active media, rainwater filters Petro-PIT® retains hydrocarbon traces while preventing the retention tanks and bunds from becoming real pools.
In a case of a major spill of oil, the component will react instantly and form a cap, resistant to 1 bar pressure, preventing any fluid from flowing into the environment.
In all cases tested, the concentration of hydrocarbons in water filter output is less than 1 ppm.
The cartridge is installed horizontally on a drain valve, thanks to its 1.5'' male threaded head.
The use of Teflon roll on the threaded head of the cartridge is recommended to ensure a proper sealing
A pre-filter is required to prevent the proper filter to be clogged by the impurity contained in the water (Mud, organic materials..) Either with a prefilter screwed in its head (PFC44) or by a pre filtration box PFBS installed inside the retention. In any case it is highly advised to regularly check and clean the pre filtration with clear water, to maintain a maximum rain flow capacity.
Several Petro-PIT® can be connected in parallel in case of higher flow rates.
Beyond 16 litres / min, the use of a Petro-PIPE ® is advised.
