Many workplaces use a variety of products to clean and run the machines. Over time, the floor is contaminated with those waste products, such as grease or oil. It doesn’t necessarily pose a risk to employees or vehicles, and many companies require that employees wear slip-resistant shoes for such reasons. However, that vein of oil can wash away into the drainage system and into the ecosystem.
Drain filters prevent that from happening, and they’re a cost-effective solution. In most cases, they are noticeable in colour, such as black, which ensures that they are seen by everyone.
Drain filters are practical because they help move stormwater without allowing other debris to get washed away. It can capture fuel, soil, oil and other debris, as well. The filter is unique in that it sits on top of the storm drain and allows water to pass through. However, other by-products are caught. They use bilge socks and a main skirting with an oil sediment basin. The bilge sock is placed into the oil sediment basin and captures any fuel and oil. It’s quite easy to replace and dispose of the bilge sock as needed. In most cases, the bilge sock can be thrown away in any waste bin, though you should check your local regulations first.
At EcoSpill, they realise that company owners have to worry about more than just large spillages. Many times, people only consider the problems associated with huge oil spills, but even trace amounts of oil or grease can cause problems in the local environment. With their drain filters, you can prevent any accidental spills and keep trace amounts of oil away from the local wildlife. You can save money and reduce your risk of fines and negative reviews, ensuring that your company does its part to protect the world around them.
