Drain Filter

DrainSAFE™ acts as a drain filter and can save you money in environmental fines and costly cleanups. This innovative device is a simple and cost effective in-pit stormwater management solution. Satisfied customers have been using DrainSAFE™ for many years to prevent pollution from leaving storm drains.

Respond quickly to polluting discharges and spill emergencies. DrainSAFE™ is a unique above ground manual stormwater shut down mechanism. Turn the handle to close the valve and it becomes an isolation device. One person can quickly shut the DrainSAFE™ unit to contain spills in an emergency.

As an act of prevention, enable the closed position of DrainSAFE™ to isolate a stormwater pit before undertaking any activities that risk a potential spill. Likely scenarios include places where liquids are being unloaded or moved, decanted from tanks into containers, at fueling stations and where trucks carrying liquids will be parked.

DrainSAFE™ will trap oils, sediment and gross pollutants 24/7. The practical design allows water to flow through while sediment and gross pollutants are retained in the body of the unit. Hydrocarbons are trapped by an absorbent material secured within the diffuser body.

Avoid harsh fines, penalties and negative press from stormwater pollution. DrainSAFE™ can deliver on corporate objectives to meet standards enforced by the EPA. Install DrainSAFE™ in every drain pit at your premises for maximum effectiveness and tick boxes for stormwater pollution management and spill response. DrainSAFE™ is your go to storm drain filter insert.

The DrainSAFE™ unit is serviceable and can be easily cleaned. It’s important to conduct routine inspections and cleaning to maintain optimal flow rates. Supported by a proper inspection and maintenance schedule, DrainSAFE™ will provide reliable, long term environmental compliance.

The DrainSAFE™ is a serviceable unit that retrofits inside a drain pit. Once installed it sits entirely beneath the drain grate. It does not impede wheel or foot traffic over the grate.

The mechanism that closes the unit and stops flow into the stormwater system is engaged manually by extending and turning the handle within the unit.

The stainless steel handle stows in a protective sheath within the diffuser body and beneath the grate. Once engaged, the telescopic handle will extend 500mm above ground level out of the grate.

Debris is captured in the diffuser body and hydrocarbons are absorbed by a material secured within the diffuser body.

In the OPEN position DrainSAFE™ will trap sediment, debris and hydrocarbons. Rainwater will continue to flow through the unit and into the stormwater drain. This is ideal for continuous environmental compliance during normal operations on most sites.

In the CLOSED position DrainSAFE™ becomes a stormwater isolation device that will block the drain and stop flow through the device. Left in the closed position, rainwater will not flow through the device which could lead to flooding. Ideally DrainSAFE™ is closed only during risky activities or in response to a spill emergency.
