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 aims to help contractors and site engineers stay in compliance with NPDES and other stormwater regulations. 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.
Sediment filter bags, also known as silt bags or dewatering bags, are a common option for the removal of silt, sediment, debris, and even oil 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. When oil is also present in your runoff, bags will feature additional components to address and remove oil.
When smaller dewatering projects are required, the Pipe Sock is the perfect choice to help quickly and effectively filter out a discharge area. Built in 6", 8", 12" or 16" diameters, these filter socks are able to attach directly to the end of a pipe or hose to catch all water flows leaving the site. This helps remove unwanted materials to keep discharge clean and sediment free.
The Over Grate Drain Filter is an easy way to filter stormwater and other runoff materials. Rather than fitting over the entire grate, these filters are designed to install directly to the top of grates. This creates an easy installation process that does not require moving heavy grates.
For certain site areas, filtering out stormwater runoff is required directly inside the storm drain. These storm water filtration catch basin and 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.
Dewatering Bag Uses and Advantages
SolHuTec's Dewatering Bags are manufactured using a geotextile filter fabric that helps to filter our water as it is directly pumped into the bag. Typically constructed with an inlet that can accommodate hoses up to 4" in size, these bags are used on dredging sites, construction sites, and various other industrial locations to remove silt and sediment from water. Sediment filter bags are also widely used in lake, pond, or lagoon dewatering applications.
Storm Water Filtration Pipes and Drain Inserts
Similar to our dewatering bags, these storm water filtration products are the perfect choice for applications requiring the filtration of silt, sediment, sand and other materials. Rather than having water pumped directly into the bag, these storm drain inserts are placed directly into the storm drain to filter out materials as they are entering the drain. This prevents silt, sediment and other debris from entering the drain and polluting a storm water system.
