DIESEL AND AVIATION FUEL TREATMENT

We are able to provide green treatment of oil interceptors and catchment pits to reduce oil levels at aviation sites.


SOME OF OUR PREVIOUS WORK.

The problem.

A previous client of ours was a company with training facilities that provided real time scenarios for disasters and accidents. They contacted GWT Limited needing our help. To create the re-enactment of a dangerous accident gallons of diesel oil, aviation fuel and kerosene were spread around on a site. It was then set alight to create controlled fires to be tackled as part of the exercise. 

As a result of this there was  a huge run off, with oil and fuel draining into the water outlet, at a ratio of approximately 1000 parts per million. To capture the oils around the site there have a number of oil interceptors which then draw the run-off to large 500,000 gallon catchment pits prior to leaving the site.

GWT Limited were approached because the company a wanted green treatment for all of the oil interceptors around the site, as well as the main catchment pit as shown in the image on the right.

The solution to the problem.

Geyser Water Treatment were tasked with reducing the oil level down to 10 parts per million. 

We built around the site and added dosing systems and aeration tubes to each of the oil interceptors. This introduced bacteria, which had been specifically designed, to digest the oil that drained into each catchment pit. 

The same process was applied to the  main catchment pit, where multiple aeration tubes for dosing the pit with bacteria. In addition. We also installed specialist filtration pads designed to collect oil but to release clean water off the site.

Testing was carried out after the installation of the filters. The water was, and has over several years since, been releasing less than 1 part per million oil to water off the site into a water course.


A complete success in diesel and aviation fuel treatment.
