Elevator Oil Interceptors

standard sizes + custom configurations

Hydraulic oil in elevator sumps is most often a code violation and potentially dangerous for all personnel working on and around the elevator equipment. This condition can cause damage to the elevator equipment and pollute the environment if allowed to persist. Hydraulic oil can migrate through concrete and seep into the ground, requiring an environmental cleanup and removal of all contaminated soils. They work in compliance with the  EPA’s sewer pretreatment or storm water programs by helping prevent petroleum products from being discharged to sanitary or storm sewers.

Highland Tank offers standard and customized oil interceptors and complete systems to remove oils and treat wastewater associated with all types of elevator operations. They are constructed of mild carbon steel and coated with heavy duty polyurethane for superior corrosion resistance, are suitable for installation above or below grade and are available in configurations to fit almost any requirement.

elevator sump pump interceptors

Highland Tank Elevator Sump Pump Interceptors are designed to trap sediment and retain free floating oil and grease, like petroleum hydrocarbons and other volatile liquids, in wastewater discharged from elevator pit sumps. Hydraulic oil in an elevator sump is a code violation and a danger for all personnel working on and around the elevator equipment. It can also cause damage to the elevator equipment and a potential contaminant to the environment. Hydraulic oil can penetrate concrete, seep into the ground and require environmental remediation. Sump pump interceptors are suitable for installation above or below grade and are available in configurations to fit almost any requirement.

elevator sump discharge filtration system

Discharge Filtration Systems recover harmful oil spills or discharges from hydraulic elevator sumps whenever the sumps are drained by a self activating pump. These systems are used in applications where strict water quality discharge regulations are mandated. They work in compliance with the EPA’s sewer pre-treatment or storm water programs by helping prevent petroleum products from being discharged to sanitary or storm sewers.
