Defend Waterways Against Oil Spills

Even the most conservatively constructed pollution control systems can be defeated by large, unforeseen oil spills. The Oil Stop Valve is a low-cost solution for containing hydrocarbon spills on the premises until they can be safely disposed of. The ballasted float is the only moving portion of Lubchem‘s Oil Stop Valve, which is made of either non-corrosive Stainless Steel or PVC. When an oil leak develops, the float loses buoyancy as the free-floating oil depth rises, eventually seating on the discharge port, which closes and confines the spill.

Oil Stop Valve Construction

To give additional design freedom and price alternatives, the Oil Stop Valve housing is made of non-corrosive PVC (low risk of fire) or stainless steel (high danger of fire). It’s usually put below ground and in line with the pipe system, although it may also be built inside a pre-assembled concrete manhole or vault.
