Biotech Forecourt separators are full retention separators specified to retain on site the maximum spillage likely to occur at a petrol filling station. They are required for both safety and environmental reasons and will treat spillages occurring during vehicle refueling and road tanker delivery.

The size of the separator is increased in order to retain the possible loss of the contents of one compartment of a road tanker, which may be up to 7,600 litres.

Typical applications include:

  • Petrol forecourts
  • Refuelling facilities
  • Fuel storage depots


All Biotech Forecourt Separators have an automatic closure device (ACD) fitted as standard. This is compulsory for all PPG3-compliant Full Retention Separators and prevents accumulated pollutants from flowing through the unit when maximum storage level is reached.


All Biotech Forecourt Separators are available in both Class 1 and Class 2 and include an automatic closure device (ACD) fitted as standard. To comply with EA regulations/standard, this product has a gross capacity of 10,000 litres.
