Separator Servicing

Separator System Audit

Environmental Construction Solutions Limited’s comprehensive range of services have been modelled on the requirements detailed in the Environment Agency / SEPA’s Pollution Prevention Guideline document PPG3 and the European Standard EN858-2.

Our services are designed to protect our clients from the risks associated with Separator Systems, whilst adopting a regime where emptying is only carried out when needed to reduce unnecessary waste management costs. This service is designed for installations where there is insufficient information regarding the current condition and functionality of the unit.

We conduct an Audit and provide a report detailing the status of the Separator and what cleaning or replacement parts are needed (if any) to ensure that the Separator System can operate efficiently, prior to entering a Service Contract.

Within the Audit we carry out the following tasks:

Establish the type of Separator if not known.

Establish that the Alarm system (if fitted, see below) has been installed correctly.

Compile a Log detailing servicing and cleaning to date.

Measure light liquid and solid level and detail findings in the Log.

Provide a report detailing what (if any) work or cleaning needs to be undertaken.

NB: We could incorporate a site drainage survey with the separator audit

ECS Limited will not enter into a Service Contract without an Audit taking place if a Separator System has been installed in excess of 12 months.

Please note if a service contract is taken out on the sites then 10% of the audit cost will be deducted.
