Storm Water Filtration
Dewatering & Filtration
Solhutec, a division of GEI Works's Dewatering & Storm Water Filtration Products are manufactured from a range of high strength filter fabrics designed to remove silt, and sediment from a water source. Oils can be filtered as well, with the additional use of absorbents. Equipped for both small and large filtration projects, products include filter bags for dewatering ponds, pipe socks for site runoff, and drain inserts for stormwater filtration.
Dewatering & Filtration Products
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 and supplemental absorbents are also available to address the needs of sites dealing with oil or hydrocarbon discharge.
Taurus Pipe Socks
One of our most economical products is an item known as the Pipe or Filter Sock. Manufactured with needle-punched fabrics, these socks attach directly to the end of pipes or hoses to filter out discharge as it leaves your site.
Taurus Pipe Socks: The Economical Filtration Product
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.

Taurus Dewatering Bags
For large scale projects, such as dewatering ponds, filtering out dredging materials or clearing large site runoff, the Dewatering Bag can be the perfect solution. Equipped to store and filter out anywhere from 1 to 15 cubic yards of materials, these bags have helped lower the cost of dewatering in a range of locations.
Taurus Dewatering Bags: Silt & Sediment Filtration Products
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.

Taurus Over Grate Filter
The Over Grate Filter is an economical filtration option for storm drain grates. All drain guards are designed with frames that allow them to sit directly on top the grate. This provides fast installation that does not require grate removal.
Taurus Over Grate Filter
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.

Taurus Runoff Filter (TRF)
The Taurus Runoff Filter is a great solution for filtration of streams and runoff in parking lots, asphalt or other flat surface areas. Installed directly in natural flows, these guards catch debris and sediment within the filter bag. This allows pollutants to be removed, while still allowing water to pass through the filter.
Taurus Runoff Filters (TRF)
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.

Taurus Drop Insert Filter: Custom Storm Water Filtration
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.
Custom Stormwater Filtration
As a manufacturer of storm water filtration and containment products, Solhutec, a division of GEI Works is also able to do custom filtration projects.
