  • Minimal maintenance – no mechanical parts and no power requirement

Low-cost, low-maintenance & scalable drainage for bunds

Green Rhino Oil Removal Cartridges and Filters remove hydrocarbons and sediment from bund water to non-detect levels, allowing it to drain freely. Popular with transformer manufacturers and maintenance contractors, these filters can be used on any bunded area which may become contaminated with hydrocarbons. These oil cartridge filters offer a cost-effective alternative to oil-discriminating pumps, oil water separators and vacuum tankering.

Green Rhino Oil Removal Cartridges are listed on the Considerate Constructors Best Practice website.

How do Green Rhino Oil Removal Cartridges work?

Oil is removed from the bund water as it passes through the cartridge. The active component in these cartridges is a proprietary smart polymer which reacts with hydrocarbons to form a solid and insoluble rubber-like substance. Trapped inside the cartridge, the solidified oil physically can’t leak out. Discharged water can be allowed to flow into the environment or surface water drains.

When all the polymer in the filter has been activated by oil, flow is naturally blocked so no leakage can occur. This means that the cartridges deliver a failsafe response in the event of a catastrophic breach.

A wide range of hydrocarbons can be captured, including dielectric fluids, oil, diesel and used motor oils.

Green Rhino’s Oil Removal Cartridges simply require a drainage outflow to be built into the bund. They do not require a power source or internet connection.

High performance

Filters are available with a range of capacities from 1‒14 litres of oil and flow rates from 6‒80 litres of water per minute. On low-risk sites, cartridges may last years before needing to be replaced.

Low maintenance

The cartridges have no mechanical parts or power requirement which reduces the potential points of failure. This is ideal for remote and infrequently-visited locations.

Your maintenance engineers simply need to check the cartridges when on site. An accumulation of water in the bund indicates either that the sediment filter needs cleaning out or that the cartridge needs replacing. Each Oil Removal Cartridge includes a removal sediment filter which can be easily inspected and cleaned.

A fitting kit enables the cartridge to be removed, inspected and replaced without any leakage occurring. The sediment filter can be easily removed and cleaned out during inspections.

The smart polymer inside the Oil Removal Cartridges poses no health and safety issues to maintenance operatives and units can be disposed of in standard hazardous waste bins.

Scalability

If the flow rate or concentration of hydrocarbons increases, lower-capacity cartridges can be replaced with higher-capacity units, or additional filters can be added. Similarly, filters can be retrofitted to bunds to replace or provide support for pumping systems that are struggling to perform.

Low cost

Cartridges cost from around £240 depending on the specification. Factor in the savings on construction, installation, maintenance and waste oil/water removal, and Green Rhino’s Oil Removal Cartridges and Filters offer a very cost-efficient solution.
