At Ultraspin, each and every system that leaves our factory passes a rigorous Factory Acceptance Test (FAT) as part of the pre-commissioning process. This pre-commissioning ensures that when the separator arrives on site, installation is as simple as possible and there no doubts of the performance of the separator. Given our systems treat water, the only way to complete a stringent test is to run water through the system and this testing can use up thousands of litres in a very short space of time.
“I’ve always believed that where possible, it’s our duty to protect and improve the environment to the best of our abilities.”
Mr Gavan Prendergast, General Manager & Owner of Ultraspin Technology
The core aim of Ultraspin and the separator technology we’ve developed is to assist our customers to minimise their environmental footprint. While we know our equipment makes a massive difference in the world, for us that’s not enough. We want to ensure that we’re producing our world class oil water separators with as little environmental impact as possible.
Today we take that one step further… our wet test bay is now completely operating on rainwater harvested from our factory roof. A capture tank intercepts the water coming down the gutter and when the level in this tank reaches a set point, we transfer this water inside directly to our test bay tank. If either tank overfills for any reason, they’re both set up to overflow excess water back to the gutter downpipe. The design allows for further slimline tanks to be installed to increase capacity as required in the future.
