  2. 2. Highland Tank AFamily Business Since 1946, Highland Tank has been on the leading edge of tank technology. Initially, Highland primarily fabricated fuel storage tanks. In 1986, we entered a new era of fabrication with the development of the Highland Tank Oil/Water Separator to meet more stringent environmental regulations to prevent oil spills and water pollution. As our core business of oil/water separator fabrication grew, we expanded our wastewater treatment systems product line to in- clude Oil/Sand Interceptors, Advanced Filtration Sys- tems, and Collection Catch Basins. We put over 20 years of experience into every High- land Oil/Water Separator we build. Our separators are unparalleled in performance, ease of maintenance, structural strength, product compatibility, and corro- sion resistance. With over 12,000 units in commercial operation worldwide, our patented oil/water separa- tors have a proven record of reliability. Highland engineers have designed a functional means of primary separation that meets and surpasses fed- eral, state, and local oil and grease discharge limita- tion requirements. Our separators handle a wide range of oily discharges from oil storage and vehicle maintenance, fueling, and washing areas at petro- leum, transportation, industrial, military, commercial, and municipal facilities. Specifically, our high performance HTC UL-SU2215 ap- proved separators greatly reduce the level of free oil, grease, and oily coated solids down to 10 ppm and re- move free oil droplets down to 20 microns. Highland’s cylindrical or rectangular separators are available in sin- gle and double-walled construction for aboveground, underground, or belowground vaulted installation.2

  6. 6. Saving Our Environment for Future Generations The publics increasing interest in the conservation of the nations water resources has directly affected industries worldwide. Pressure to control harmful oil spills and discharges from industrial facilities has resulted in increasingly more stringent regulations. Industries are now facing costly penalties for noncompliance. Industrial facilities with oil storage and handling activities commonly produce wastewater containing oil, grease, floating debris, and settleable solids. Highland’s extensive line of wastewater treatment systems helps these facilities comply with the EPA’s NPDES regulations for the proper treatment and discharge of contaminated storm water runoff, and satisfy SPCC requirements for spill control and secondary containment. The method of treatment depends on the concen- tration, the type of contaminants in question, and the location of the discharge. The key to success for collecting, separating, and treating oily wastewater on-site is properly configuring the best available technologies to optimize performance and limit operational costs of the system. A well designed drainage system equipped with a Highland Corella® Oil/Water Separator or Oil/Sand Interceptor as the primary step, frequently com- bined with an Advanced Filtration Systems (AFS) as a secondary step, can economically treat most wastewater flows to achieve nearly all discharge limitations and water quality standards for petroleum compounds.6

  32. 32. Pre-Engineered Design Options Single Basin Single-basin interceptors have a sin- gle collection chamber and sludge baffle to remove sand, grit, grease, and free oil. It’s our own simple oil and sand "knock-out" design. Double-basin interceptors have two collection chambers and a sludge baf- fle. Commonly used in car wash and commercial or municipal vehicle washing applications for oil and sand Double Basin removal prior to discharging to a re- cycle wash system. An optional over- flow bypass directs excess flow to an auxiliary retention area. Triple-basin* interceptors have three collection chambers and a sludge baffle. Our most popular and versatile design has a variety of ap- plications, such as car washes and commercial garages. Floatables, oil, sand, and other sediments are Triple Basin trapped in the first chamber, and any remaining oil is trapped in the second chamber. The third chamber can be equipped with an effluent pump system when used in conjunc- tion with Highland’s HighCycle Wash Water Recycle System. Quad-basin interceptors have four collection chambers and a sludge baffle. In addition to their use at large, commercial vehicle washes, Quad Basin they are commonly used at construc- tion sites for oil, dirt, and debris re- moval during site dewatering operations, to comply with strict stormwater regulations. • Conforms to IAPMO - PS - 80 - 2006. 32

  38. 38. Collection Catch BasinsCollection Catch Basins (CB) are designedto capture sand, grit, debris, and asso-ciated pollutants discharged from vehiclemaintenance and fueling facilities andto prevent their entry into the drainagesystem. When installed in conjunctionwith an oil/water separator, the catchbasin acts as a simple pretreatment device,to collect this trash and help prevent itfrom clogging the drain lines. The resultis also less waste material enteringinto the separator!Catch basins are easy to install, operate,and maintain. The catch basin’s remov-able drop-in wastebasket collects trash,which may be deposited at the servicebay drains or fuel islands. A secondscreen welded inside the catch basin,adds further protection against wasteentering the separator. Unlike older style concrete units, our catch basins are constructed of heavy duty steel that wont crack or leak. They’re also available in double- walled construction to meet strict environmental regulations Features: • Coated mild carbon or stainless steel construction • Pre-formed attached grating frame with heavy duty grate • Easy access removable basket for trash collection and removal • Screened discharge pipe • Large sediment retention38
