Gross Pollutant Traps

Growing environmental awareness has seen a change in the nature of development. Recent legislation has directed engineering design towards environmental protection, and often local and state governments require developments to include environmental protection devices.

 

To accommodate government requirements for stormwater treatment, the Aglass Gross Pollutant Traps have been designed to reduce oil and silt levels in stormwater systems.
Applications:

 

The AGLASS Gross Pollutant Trap has been specifically designed for the in-line removal of Oil and Silt in Stormwater run-off from roads and both residential and industrial buildings, and can also be implemented in any situation requiring the removal of Oil and Silt from stormwater flows.
