A low maintenance automatic pumping system, that detects the difference between oil and water and safely pumps the water* out of the bund.

Bund Water Control Unit

With unique drip tray featureHow it works

The pump/probe assembly, made from robust non-deteriorating materials, is placed in the sump of the bund. The probe sensors monitor the sump liquids for the presence of water or oil at site/sump specific levels.

The control, switches the water pump on and off at the appropriate levels.

High water and excess oil levels in the sump, and power failure, are indicated by LED signals on the control which may be extended as alarms if linked to the site telemetry system.

Bund Water Control Unit

Failsafe feature

Bunds need to be watertight to be effective and therefore bunded areas collect rainwater, which becomes polluted by the normal day-to-day drips from the storage facility. The polluted rainwater must be removed in an environmentally safe manner so that the bund retains its full capacity to contain a major spill from the storage facility, and avoid an oil pollution incident.
