During construction site jobs, addressing the issue of stormwater runoff is often required to keep sites in compliance with local, state or federal regulations. With this range of products, Solhutec, a division of GEI Works aims to help contractors and site engineers stay in compliance with NPDES and other stormwater regulations. Storm Water Filtration Products have been implemented along the edge of construction sites, at the end of pipes, along ponds or directly in storm drains to filter out unwanted silt or sediment. Models are additionally available in each category to address the needs of sites dealing with oil or hydrocarbon discharge.
Taurus Dewatering Bags, also known as silt bags or sediment filter bags, are a common option for the removal of silt, sediment, and debris from storm water or site runoff. Each bag is typically made from a nonwoven geotextile filter fabric that retains sediment while allowing water to flow from the bag.
The Taurus Pipe Sock is the perfect choice for locations dealing with outflow from pipes or small hoses. Built in 6", 8", 12" or 16" diameters, these filter socks attach directly to the end of a pipe/hose and filter materials as they flow out of the pipe. Filters are small enough to effectively filter and contain unwanted materials before they leave a discharge area.
The Over Grate Drain Filter is used for parking lot, street or site drains. Made with a robust frame and high strength filter fabrics, these guards install directly to the top of grates. This removes the need for grate removal, making installation fast, easy and efficient. While typical sizing for these filters is available, additional sizing can be made to fit the size of your drain.
The Taurus Runoff Filter (TRF) is designed for targeted storm water filtration. Great for parking lots, asphalt, and hard surfaces, these guards sit in natural flow areas to remove debris, sediment and other unwanted materials. TRF units are available in 12", 24", 36" and 48" sizes.
For certain site areas, filtering out storm water runoff is required directly inside the storm drain. For these storm drain catch basins, drop insert filters are built specifically to the size of your storm or gutter drain to meet sizing and flow requirements in your location. Filters can be used inside the storm drain or on top of the grate to catch debris or sediment before it flows into the drain.
Taurus Storm Water Filtration Product Features
A majority of our Taurus Dewatering and Filtrations Products are constructed using an 8 oz. nonwoven geotextile fabric. Designed specifically for filtration purposes, this fabric is able to effectively remove silt, sediment and other materials from stormwater runoff, pond runoff or dewatering sites. All geotextile materials are made from a robust fabric that is able to handle increased water flows and demanding applications.
Dewatering Bag Uses and Advantages
When compared to other dewatering options, filter bags, socks and drain guards can be an economical solution to your sediment requirements. Due to their light weight construction, each of these products can offer fast shipping and reliable filtration for water flows before they leave your site.
