Protect Waterways from Oil Spills
Large, unpredictable oils spills can defeat even the most conservatively
designed pollution control systems. The OSV is an economical option used
to confine hydrocarbon spills to the premises for safe disposal. Contech’s
OSV is fabricated from either non-corrosive Stainless Steel or PVC and has
only one moving part, the ballasted float. When an oil spill occurs, the float
loses buoyancy as the free-floating oil depth increases until it finally seats
on the discharge port, closing and confining the spill.
Oil Stop Valve Construction
The Oil Stop Valve housing is fabricated from non-corrosive PVC (low
risk of fire) or stainless steel (high risk of fire) to provide
greater design flexibility and pricing options. It is typically
installed below ground and in-line with the piping system and can also
be installed in pre-assembled concrete manhole or vault designs.
