Triple Interceptor:

A Triple Interceptor is also known as a Petrol and Oil Interceptor. Triple interceptors are used extensively in the automotive industry. They are often installed downstream of a silt pit which contains a straining basket to collect dirt and grit before it enters the interceptor.

The interceptor is designed to prevent pollution from trade waste entering the sewer system. The tank has a number of baffles that slow the flow of water to allow suspended grease, oil and traces of fuel and solvents to float to the top while solids settle to the bottom and cleaner water flows out to sewer.

A petrol and oil interceptor is typically evacuated and cleaned 3-4 times a year by an approved trade waste collection contractor.
