Petro Barrier Systems has constructed filter systems with continuous operating pressures ranging from 0 to 125psi and flow rates of up to 100 USG per minute. Higher pressure and higher volume systems are able to be designed and implemented upon request, and overall flow rates and the physical size of the system are scaled based on customer requirement. Pressure Filter Systems can range from small systems for onboard personal watercraft to large systems suitable for hazmat water handling at large power utility sites, and can be created either as an add-on to an existing water handling system or designed from the ground up.

For marina use, Petro Barrier Systems has created a complete pressure filter suite called the

, which incorporates a Pressure Filter System as part of a comprehensive water treatment and recycling plan.

Many water handling systems run under pressure, and having to incorporate unpressurized storage tanks simply to accomadate a filtration system is an additional expense and complexity that may not be feasible for many applications. Also, space considerations may make the addition of too much extra equipment difficult if not impossible. To date, Petro Barrier Systems has seen demand for systems capable of running under pressure from three main areas: marine applications both on-water and on-shore; automotive workshops cleaning wastewater before release into municiple sewer systems; and large industrial sites with high flow rates of water within pressurized pumping systems.

All of these applications are suitable environs for a Pressure Filter System. Tailored in size and pressure capability for the installation site, our Pressure Filters can be configured to remove hydrocarbons, heavy metals, or a number of other contaminants based on local needs. The capability of these systems to remove a variety of contaminants can make a Pressure Filter System ideal for manufacturing facilities concerned with reducing water use, allowing a significant portion of their waste water to be recycled instead of being released into municiple water systems. For smaller operators, an onboard Pressure Filter System on a boat can properly treat dirty, oily bilge water while at sea instead of having to wait for dockside facilities to be available, and remove the possibility of contaminated water leaking out into the marine environment.

Other products and services from Oil Spill Defense


Oil Spill Defense � Leaf and Grit Barriers

By shielding the filter itself from accumulations of leaves, gravel and other relatively large-particle contaminants, the oil-blocking Floor Drain Protector can continue to function at peak efficiency even in environments that have large amounts of particulate.


Oil Spill Defense � Filters for Metals and Non-Oil Contaminants

Metal Filters are available in a variety of sizes to suit various flow rates, and can also be coupled with Petro Barrier Systems oil filtration products to create a complete protection suite. Berm Barriers - Floor Drain Protectors - Storm Drain Protectors - Oil Water Separators - California Drains - Polishing Filters - Leaf Barriers - Filter Pads - Pressure Filters.


Oil Spill Defense � Custom Solutions

The water would then be chemically treated while in the drum to cause most of the silt and other solids to precipitate out, collecting in the drum over the course of multiple treatments until sufficient had accumulated for normal disposal.


Oil Spill Defense � Berm Barrier

Berm Barriers allow contaminated water held within a bermed area or holding pond to be cleaned of hydrocarbons and safely discharged as it accumulates, without the need to ever have a shut-off valve manually operated. Large sites such as transformer vaults and storage tanks often face problems with filtering small concentrations of oil out of very large quantities of water that accumulate from weather or normal operation.


Oil Spill Defense - Storm Drain Protector

Storm drain systems in populated areas are a prime culprit for carrying this pollution to water sources, and a moment contemplating the sheer number of drain inlets in a single city should make it clear why little media exposure is turned on the issue due to the lack of clear targets to implicate as offenders.


Oil Spill Defense - Floor Drain Protector

Even just a few drops of gas being spilled while filling a lawnmower or a car driping oil in the garage for a few days before being fixed will often result in these oil products eventually finding their way into drains, and from there onwards into our waterways.


Oil Spill Defense - Products For A Cleaner Environment � Environmental Safety Solutions

Fitting into a variety of standard drainpipe sizes up to 12" in diameter, the Pipe Protector will filter out small concentrations of oils, and will automatically block in the case of major spill - making cleanup easier and vastly reducing environmental impact. Petro Barrier Systems is dedicated to ensuring that pollutants are removed before they enter the marine environment, and recognizes that everyone's problems can be a bit different.
