The PIFH-616 Petro-Pipe is used to discharge rainwater from oil containment areas. The 7” housing pipe is flanged and mounted through a liner or containment wall. The housing pipe functions best when installed at a 15 - 25 degree slope, allowing water to build up on the face of the Petro-Pipe providing a positive head pressure for optimum flow of 3.5 to 4 gpm.
The Petro-Pipe is installed into the housing and is attached with 5 stainless steel screws. There is an o-ring between the flanges that compresses when the screws are tightened, creating a water and oil tight seal.
In a liner application, there is an additional flange attached to the liner prior to the installation of the housing pipe. This flange provides a complete seal between the liner and the Petro-Pipe itself.
Petro-Pipes have a retaining ring on the inside that is removable and its dirt filters are accessible. The dirt filters keep the Petro-Pipe free of debris and requires periodic maintenance, usually about once per year. Petro-Pipes allow for point-source discharge so they can be changed out and the filters can be replaced if needed.
