Separator alarm devices are extremely important for the efficient operation of industrial kitchens and restaurants, retail stores and fast-food outlets, as well as industrial installations and garages, car parks, service stations and car washes, airports, motorways, and transport routes near groundwater reserves. Separator alarms are used to indicate when oil, grease and sand separators need to be emptied.
Separator alarms are required to fulfil most industrial and communal environmental licenses and environmental certificates, as they are vital to environmental safety. For example, separator alarms are compulsory under the international EN 858 standard for separator systems for light liquids. The Labkotec White Paper presents European directives and standards concerning mounting, installation and operation of light liquid separators.
