Fabco Creates Storm Drain Solutions for Gas Stations

In 2015, stormwater fines and compliance directives totaled over 9 billion dollars throughout the country. In 2016, that figure is estimated to grow. In response to this incredible price tag, FABCO has helped create the SWEPE PROGRAM (SWEPE means StormWater Environmental Pollution Extraction). This innovative program is a cost-effective configuration of products and services that successfully deals with stormwater compliance problems.

Environmental agencies police all water entering municipal stormwater infrastructure. They test for stormwaters pollution entering these public aquifers and waterways through dry wells or stormwater inlets. Pollution left unfiltered can create health problems as well as damage to the ecological system, resulting in fines that can effect your financial status.

As Allan Leon of Leon Petroleum states, “We have learned in the past that it is much less expensive to install the filters and exchange them on a regular basis than it is to remediate the soil. Also the EPA and DEC are requiring that you remediate these dry wells or they can result in fines.”

The SWEPE Program helps protect both you from fines and local drinking water from pollutants by using specially designed products and services. This program filters polluted stormwater before it enters your inlet.

The program requires no demolition. No asphalt or concrete needs to be hammered out. Your business and parking lots will not be effected by the SWEPE installation. Afterwards, typical vehicle traffic and debris, including hydrocarbons, sediments, organics, greases, heavy metals, and bacteria are captured. They never enter the stormwater system.

Fabco Goes In-House to Make Stormwater Filter System Prototypes

In an effort to produce high-performance stormwater filter system prototypes in a more timely fashion, Fabco Industries acquired a 3D printer. Previously, Fabco has relied on a rather costly and time-consuming process that involved outsourcing third party companies to build prototypes. With the acquisition of the S-Squared 3D printer, Fabco has brought the work of creating prototypes in-house, effectively shaving a lot of time off a task which previously could take up to 4 weeks to complete. Now Fabco is in total control over when these prototypes are completed and when live testing can be performed for a client, making the entire process much smoother and convenient for all involved. There is even a camera on the device that monitors the prints 24/7.

The S-Squared 3D printer bolsters a large printing area, 12”x12”x12”, or one cubic foot of printable area. It also has a unique printer head cooling system that was custom designed to keep extruder cold ends cold and provide material cooling for precision printing. Its low jam extruder nozzle is designed to reduce the incidents of jams from switching materials without switching the nozzle. With an extremely rigid aluminum frame, this machine will not have any chassis flex even under the most demanding printing. In fact, it’s so rigid you may only have to adjust it one time over its lifetime. Fabco Industries and their clients are sure to reap the benefits of having this highly advanced printer in-house very quickly.
