Pollution Control Devices or PCD help to reduce the risk of fines and ecological damage by proactively containing spills from industrial sites and/or Combined Sewer Overflows. Combined with warning systems that include SMS, Sirens and flashing lights.

Manufactured here in the UK, using high quality stainless steel. The range of pollution containment valves can be supplied to fit almost any profile of drain or overflow (subject to a maximum operating head) and retrofitted, typically in less than half a day. Compared to penstock valves there are seldom any need for civil works and, more than often the valves can be retro-fitted to an existing chamber or outlet. This minimises disruption and saves considerable amounts of time and money during installation.

Containment valve Installation

PCD Containment Valve 600 

Ultra Low Power – No Mains Power Required

Containment Valve 250mm

The valves light weigh construction enables them to be operated in areas devoid of mains power, under the control of a dedicated ultra-low power logic controller. Units can operate for many months from a stand alone 12V battery or permanently operated with the addition of a small solar panel. Further, if mains is available then the units include a mains power supply that is used to maintain the battery charge which doubles as a battery backup if there is a power failure.
Safe Remote Control Operation.

Valves can be equipped with wireless communications that permit their operation from a safe distance or under automatic control if there is a fire. This feature can be invaluable when dealing with spills of hazardous materials or during a fire when the last thing you want to do is place staff at risk to operate a valve. Further, remote operation obviates the need for dual working teams when operating valves in exposed hazardous areas such as public spaces or on river banks.

We manufacture an exclusive range of ultra-low power receivers that are compatible with the valve controller that permits the upgrade of any valve for remote activation without placing excessive drain on the battery.
Remote Diagnostics – BMS, SCADA and Telemetry Compatible.

The valves can also be equipped with 2-way communications that can be used to relay the status of the valve OPEN – CLOSED – FAULT – LOW BATTERY – MAINS FAIL to a remote location. This permits alarm messages to be delivered to single or multiple locations in a variety of formats.
Options in include:

Gateway Receiver – To existing BMS, Telemetry, SCADA
Sentinel Receiver – Multi-Zoned receiver for installation in security offices / lodges
Data Concentrator – Permits alarms and status to be forwarded by e-mail, SMS Text, etc.
Call Points – Remote Call Points to Activate Valves from a Distance
Acoustic Fire Alarm Triggers – Activate Valves from the Detection of a Sustained Alarm Activation.
