Petro Barrier Systems has created a set of filters that can remove many contaminents from water, bringing concentrations well below regulatory requirements and helping to ensure that these materials do not build up in local environments. Capable of being mounted in both pressurized and non-pressurized water systems, these Metal Filters can significantly reduce the following contaminants:

Aluminum (to < 1 part per million)

Arsenic (to < 1 part per million)

Barium (to < 1 part per million)

Boron (to < 1 part per million)

Calcium (to < 85 parts per million)

Chromium (to < 1 part per million)

Cobalt (to < 1 part per million)

Copper (to < 5 parts per million)

Gold (to < 1 part per million)

Iron (to < 1 part per million)

Lanthanum (to < 1 part per million)

Lead (to < 1 part per million)

Magnesium (to < 160 parts per million)

Manganese (to < 1 part per million)

Molybdenum (to < 1 part per million)

Nickel (to < 1 part per million)

Phosphorus (to < 2 parts per million)

Potassium (to < 1 part per million)

Scandium (to < 1 part per million)

Selenium (to < 1 part per million)

Silicon (to < 5 parts per million)

Silver (to < 1 part per million)

Strontium (to < 2 parts per million)

Titanium (to < 1 part per million)

Vanadium (to < 1 part per million)

Zinc (to < 3 parts per million)

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.

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 � 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 Defence � Pressure Filter Systems

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.


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.
