In the event of a fire, significant amounts of water may be discharged from a building’s elevator sprinkler system. This discharge can create several safety challenges for firefighters needing constant elevator access during emergencies. ParkUSA’s EleVader® is a product used to pump out liquids (usually oil and water) from the elevator pit. The unit is a passive gravity flow system for the separation of oil from oil-water mixtures. The design utilizes the difference in specific gravities between oil and water (buoyancy force) enhanced by the use of patented coalescing plates. The separator is designed to receive oily water by gravity flow and to process it on a once-through basis. The separator vessel is constructed of high strength precast concrete. The coalescing plates are manufactured of an oleophilic polypropylene.

The system is a complete, fully integrated, and packaged system which contains required alarm features. Per the ASME A17.1 Safety & Building Code, a sump pit and pump (50 GPM each shaft) shall be provided for all elevators with firefighter emergency operation. The code is to ensure the removal of water from the shaft, regardless of what contaminants are present. The EleVader is specially designed for this application.

The system is compliant to all plumbing codes (i.e. UPC, IAPMP). Providing high efficiencies on oil removal and flow treated, the ParkUSA EleVader is leader in the market for these types of applications.
