What is a forecourt separator?

Inside view of a rewatec forecourt separator

A forecourt separator is a specialized type of full-retention separator.

It is designed to retain the maximum spillage that is likely to occur at a gas or petrol station, fuel storage depot, scrap yard, or similar location.

These systems are essential infrastructure because they enable commercial and industrial properties to comply with health, safety, and environmental regulations.

Count on Rewatec forecourt separators to get the job done right. With a glass-reinforced plastic (GRP) tank that resists corrosion, our high-performance solutions retain up to 10,000 L — exceeding the volume of an entire fuel truck compartment.

Where are our forecourt separators used?

Rewatec forecourt separators are most often solutions for:

  • gas and petrol stations
  • refueling facilities
  • fuel storage depots
  • garages and workshops
  • scrap yards

How do our forecourt separators work?

Contaminated stormwater enters the forecourt separator through the main inlet pipe.

The system allows solid particles to settle on the bottom of the tank. It holds the liquid portion of stormwater long enough for fuel and oil to separate and rise to the surface. These pollutants are safely retained until they can be extracted according to local regulations.

Decontaminated water then passes though a coalescing filter before being discharged from the tank.

All Rewatec forecourt separators have fail-safe features. A high-level alarm triggers when the maximum retention capacity is reached. An automatic closure device also comes standard to keep accumulated pollutants from flowing through the system.

Forecourt separator maintenance

Protect your property and the environment by having your Rewatec forecourt separator regularly emptied by a qualified service professional.

The frequency of service depends on the application, the capacity of your tank, and the regulations in your area. It is best to speak with a local expert to determine the service schedule that is right for you.
