FILTRELEC® is a range of products which are indispensable to filter oil polluted water. Each product in the range allows rainwater to percolate through whilst retaining hydrocarbons. In all tests carried out the filters discharged water with less than 5 ppm of oil concentration. In case of an oil  leak the active product solidifies immediately avoiding any polluting discharge.

These filters are designed using patented technology widely used in the USA and Canada.
They are made up of an oil retaining but water rejecting polymer which holds hydrocarbons  permanently. The different products in the FILTRELEC® range correspond to specific applications in terms of water flow rates and speed with which they react to hydrocarbons. Each element of the range is made up of the filter cartridge and its pre-filter, preventing the cartridge from becoming blocked with dust and silt in the oil. The shut off system operates without any mechanical device or electrical connection. FILTRELEC® reduces maintenance costs considerably and as such is a
unique solution to continual filtering of rainwater draining from bunds.

Contrary to concrete bunds, GMT metal bunds are individually calculated to match the exact dielectric capacity of all the transformers currently on the market. GMT bunds are manufactured individually and can be made to measure to match the dimensions of the premises where transformers are located
