New Video showcasing the World leading strength of the BMS Stormbreaker Storm water Attenuation System.

The BMS Stormbreaker is a class leading solution for the management of surface water flows from sealed surfaces to prevent flooding as part of a Sustainable urban Drainage System (SuDS) system.  It forms an artificial void underground, which allows the storage of storm water flows, which can then be allowed to infiltrate into the surrounding soil when water levels abate (infiltration) or to be discharged in a controlled manner from a fully sealed system (attenuation).

There are many plastic attenuation systems on the market, so what makes the Stormbreaker different?

Its main point of difference is its immense strength;

Its certified vertical loading is 756 kN/m2.  BMS have observed vertical loading in excess of 900 kN/m2 in product quality testing.

This means that the Stormbreaker offers;

  1. Unmatched peace of mind over the 50 year + lifespan of an attenuation system; it will take any traffic load without moving, breaking or collapsing.
  2. Minimal cover requirement; it can be installed with only 130 mm of cover for patios, blue/green roots and pedestrian traffic areas and only 600 mm of cover under roadways.
  3. Unrivalled Installation depth range; from one Stormbreaker piece; 0.165 mm to an installation as deep as 18.56 m.  This means the Stormbreaker can achieve virtually any storage volume no matter what the site constraints are.

To demonstrate the Stormbreaker’s strength BMS commissioned a video where a 18 tonne fire truck is driven over a Stormbreaker installation with only 130 mm of cover in the form of sand and paving brick, which can be seen below.

The video shows that the Stormbreaker does not move vertically or laterally or suffer any kind of structural damage despite the 14 tonne load and only 130 mm of cover.

For further information please go the Stormbreaker on our website or contact us.  BMS can offer a ‘one stop shop’ for all your surface water requirements from design to installation including Interceptors, Holding Tanks, Stormbrake Flow Control & Ecostorm Vortex Silt Separators.

BMS Pass Quality & H&S Audits

Butler Manufacturing Services (BMS) Ltd. are happy to report that once again the company has come through its annual ISO 9001 Quality Management and OHSAS 18001 H&S Management system reaudit's with flying colours.  The audit was conducted in BMS Headquarters in Longford, Ireland in late November and this time was a complete reaudit of both systems rather than a surveillance audit. 

BMS take pride in producing quality products that are great value for wastewater and surface water treatment and were first accredited with ISO 9002 Quality Management system in 1995.  With the increasing focus on H&S both in work and on site BMS Management see their OHSAS 18001 H&S as a great way to continually improve H&S in the workplace which is of benefit to all staff and sub-contractors.

BMS are now recertified for another three years subject to yearly/spot surveillance.

BMS Sales Manager, Tommy Butler remarked that the continued success of both systems is down to a group effort by all BMS employees but special thanks must go BMS Quality/Production Manager, Dave Gannon and O&M Manager Padraig Smyth.

Stormbreaker installed at St. Mels Cathedral

The Recyclone is a fully self-contained 'all in one' wash water recycling system that can be installed in half a day with minimal civil works.  It can provide vast water use savings of up to 90% with no discharge and is especially suited to recycling truck wash water for companies with large fleets such as those present in the rapidly growing Saudi Dairy/Agriculture markets. 

The Recyclone recycles all captured used 'wash water' for immediate reuse using proven biological technology. The Recyclone is available in 2000 l/hr, 4000 l/hr, 6000 l/hr and 8000 l/hr models, with the first two models fitting in a standard 20 foot container and the second two in a standard 40 foot container for ease of shipping. 

Tommy will also be available to discuss all of BMS other products, such as the BMS Blivet, the world’s most compact all in one package sewage treatment plant, which can now produce fully disinfected high quality effluent suitable for immediate reuse and the BMS Stormbreaker, the strongest and most flexible plastic water attenuation system available worldwide.

If you would like to book an appointment with Tommy or have any questions please do not hesitate to contact BMS.
