To preserve the environment simply and efficiently it is mandatory to treat the oily rainwater polluted with hydrocarbons before the discharge into the environment. Thanks to mobile and easy-to-use solutions, GMT International & AKHELEC offer the best alternatives to conventional operations of pumping, transporting and destroying waste. In this article, you will discover what the Clean Water Act says, our solutions for filtering rainwater polluted with hydrocarbons and the qualities of our F50 rainwater filter.
There are 3 main laws to fight against the phenomenon of water pollution:
These water laws are associated with 2 standards and directives:
Thus, the various laws on water imply an active engagement of companies, and therefore consequently adapted solutions to protect this natural resource as well as the environment.
International Standard IEC 61936-1 has been prepared by IEC technical committee 99: System engineering and erection of electrical power installations in systems with nominal voltages above 1 kV a.c. and 1,5 kV d.c., particularly concerning safety aspects.
Transformer oil or insulating oil is an oil stable at high temperatures which has excellent electrical insulating properties. It is used in oil-filled transformers (wet transformers). Its functions are to insulate, suppress corona discharge and arcing, and to serve as a coolant.
Transformer oil is most often based on mineral oil, but alternative formulations with different engineering or environmental properties are growing in popularity.
This international standard notably explains that oil immersed transformers shall be equipped with a total retention bund able to collect 100% of the dielectric volume contained in the transformer.
Other sections deal with fire protection items.
The FILTRELEC® range was developed by GMT International, in partnership with TOTAL and the Institut Français du Pétrole Energies Nouvelles. The entire range is made in France.
Filtration solutions for fixed installations offering a wide range of filtered water flow rates and operating by gravity:
Portable device for recovering leaks identified on equipment installed outdoors HOLYBAG® (shared patent GMT / RTE).
New F50® mobile on-site depollution device. All our products have been tested and certified (strict compliance with the Clean Water Act) by external organizations. All of our products comply with REACH and RoHS regulations and directives.
An alternative to traditional pumping, transport and reprocessing solutions in an approved oily water centre, the F50 provides the following advantages:
This solution was created in order to comply with the laws in force regarding the filtration of water polluted with hydrocarbons. It allows you to respect the environment, fauna, flora and surrounding soils.
This filtration unit can operate completely autonomously in combination with our “BUNDGUARD” system (control of the feed pump regulator according to the level and the presence of oil).
By using an absorbent media insensitive to ambient temperature (-40 ° C / + 50 ° C) the service life of the filtration unit is greatly increased. The absorbent media should only be replaced when it is saturated with hydrocarbons.
When saturated with hydrocarbons, the absorbent media forms a tight plug and all of the fluid (water / oil) entering is then drawn up to the pit polluted by reflux. This avoids any risk of accidental pollution.
At saturation, the replacement of the pre-filtration and filtration baskets is carried out quickly and without tools.
