OPS Interceptor & Hazardous Waste Recycling

OPS Interceptor & Hazardous Waste Recycling

OPS have over 10 years of experience of hazardous interceptor waste treatment plant design (130508 etc). Our range of bespoke multi-process interceptor waste treatment solutions treat interceptor sludge, oily water and solid waste, minimising the interceptor waste recycling overhead by producing treated product for non-hazardous waste disposal.

Hazardous or low hazardous interceptor waste treatment plant would typically include:

  • Properly designed received pits/tanks
  • Sand scrubbing
  • Thickener with oil separation capability
  • Water treatment with oil separation capability
  • Oil storage and decanting


Sand which is received from interceptor waste will not be cleaned to the WRAP inert protocol which just a cyclone and dewatering bed – more attrition is required hence the OPS sand cleaning expertise comes in.

The OPS Thickener with a separate oil take off is also required to give another collection point of slop oil. This unit occupies only 3m diameter footprint but can handle all you site fines. 

The OPS water treatment is Electrocoagulation and DAF which effortlessly rips the oil from water and gives another collection point for the oil. 

Whether a client just chooses to ship the oil off site at this point is their decision otherwise it can be further treated to give a zero or positive cost rather than a negative.

Energy Efficiency = Reduced Wear.

OPS design our plants with the following features:


  • Zero ’90-degree’ elbows on pipes transporting sand and water
  • Zero ’90-degree’ elbows at the outlet of pumps
  • Recirculation pump controlled by flowmeters and a pressure sensor to reduce energy consumption
  • Accurate control of sludge flowrate to ensure smooth and efficient centrifuge operation
  • To strive to be water neutral by capturing, treating and reusing all the water which comes into a site

As engineering systems integrators, we combine cost efficient 'off the shelf' products with our high throughput proprietary processes. Integrated by best in class process control into a single solution individually engineered to site conditions, OPS deliver consistent performance, reliability and optimised life cycle costs.
