Small pre-filtration box for PETRO-PIPE® cartridges
Small pre-filtration box for PETRO-PIPE® : an essential complement to the PETRO-PIPE® filters. Placed upstream of the filter cartridges, it protects them from impurities present in the water (mud, sand, leaves, etc.) and guarantees their proper functioning.

Use and design:
The pre-filtration box PFB0810 is essential for the proper functioning of PETRO-PIPE® filters: placed upstream of the filter cartridges, it protects them from impurities present in the water (mud, dust, sand, leaves, etc.). This system is ideal for civil engineering applications (retention tanks, concrete pits, compressors, generators, etc.).
The systems consists of an aluminium box, foams and geotextiles that filter and trap impurities in the water. The PFB0810 is designed to be equipped with one PETRO-PIPE® filter. For larger discharge configurations, other pre-filtration box models are available: consult us.
Installation and maintenance:
The pre-filtration box is fixed in the bottom of the pit or retention basin thanks to their pre-drilled brackets or is slid between the 2 plates (including) previously fixed to the wall.
The internal elements of the equipment must be cleaned at least once a year by rising with clear water. In difficult conditions (important presence of leaves, dust, sand or any other element that could block the pre-filtration system), maintenance must be carried out more regularly. If no major incident occurs, it is highly recommended to change the internal components every 5 years.
Box delivered without screws and bolts for fixing (specific to each installation site depending on the thickness of the concrete).
To equip 2 PETRO-PIPE® filters, use the PFB1012 pre-filtration box.
The pre-filtration box is composed of:
- 1 metalic pre-filtration box
- 1 black mesh reinforced filter sheet
- 1 layer of white filter foam
- 1 set of metalic plates to install the PFB on the retention wall.
SPI® has been an Eastern American manufacturer based in Connecticut for 30 years. Bill Gannon founded SPI® in 1991 to develop a technology for solidifying polluting oils. His experience as Vice President of Liquid Waste Technologies from 1985 to 1991 and the Exxon Valdez disaster in 1989 were key elements in the creation of SPI®.
In the early years, SPI® focused on waste treatment by creating solidifiers for oils (Oil Bond) and for water (WaterBond). Then, in the years that followed, SPI® naturally turned to pollution prevention.
SPI® offers its patented PETRO-PIT®, PETRO-PLUG®, PETRO-PIPE® and PETRO-BARRIER® products to all customers who need to secure their retention equipment with a passive and inexpensive solution, thus allowing good drainage of rainwater without risk of overflow and therefore pollution.
No oil has ever drained from any SPI® filter. SPI® filters comply with American EPA SPCC standards, European and French standards on water treatment in light hydrocarbon separators as well as the water law (hydrocarbon content of water at the filter outlet less than 5 ppm , ICPE compliant). For three decades, thousands of installations have been protected by SPI® products in North America, Europe and Latin America. Its approval with the largest petrochemical industries, power companies and local authorities gives it an obvious strength to innovate in the filtration and solidification of new pollutants (natural esters FR3-COPPER, synthetic esters MIDEL7131) and find the solution for which you need.
