Cartridge Based Filter Inserts

Filter Cartridges Deployed To Target Pollutants Of Concern

Ferguson Waterworks partners with Fabco Industries on a wide range of cartridge filter devices for stormwater filtration. From catch basin inserts to cartridge vaults and downspout filters, there are a variety of configurations to work with your project. Call a Ferguson Waterworks expert today and discuss customization options for preventing stormwater pollution.

Rectangular StormBasins with a strong adjustable frame

Catch Basin Filtration System: StormBasin™

StormBasin is a catch basin insert filter that captures and treats stormwater pollutants commonly found in runoff. For example, debris, nutrients, coliform bacteria, oil/grease, and dissolved metals from parking lots or along roadways. Customize this filtration system with preassembled proprietary cartridge filters to catch specific pollutants. Ferguson Waterworks offers two styles: round catch basins and rectangular catch basins – each is available in multiple sizes. As a result, the StormBasin works well with most storm drains and is an ideal solution for municipal storm drain retrofits.

Rectangular StormBasins

The rectangular stormwater basin unit includes a heavy-duty adjustable aluminum frame. The frame is up to 2 inches and works well in non-standard storm drain inlets, inlets with construction flaws, and inlets with obstacles such as ledges or shallow depths. In addition, the design includes a “hooded” bypass to reduce flooding concerns during heavy storm events.

Round StormBasins

The round stormwater basin unit does not include an adjustable frame. It does, however, come in multiple sizes: 24”, 26”, 28”, and 30” diameters.

Installation and maintenance for both the rectangular and round StormBasins are minimal. Simply remove trash and debris with a vactor hose.

StormSafe Cartridge Vaults

For centralized stormwater treatment, consider StormSafe Cartridge Vaults. These vaults use the same cartridge technology as the StormBasin, however, they are intended for centralized stormwater treatment. For example, they are often used for primary drainage areas. Between the cartridge technology and the pretreatment chamber, the StormSafe subsurface vault system is ideal for complex pollutants. It is also valuable for applications where trash removal is important. In part, this is due to the cartridge filter technology because it is customizable to remove various pollutants, like those found in parking areas, industrial facilities, and maintenance facilities.

How do StormSafe Cartridge Vaults work?

The runoff cartridge device is a multi-chamber vault. The first chamber is the pretreatment chamber where untreated water enters. Then, there is the filtration chamber where the filtration cartridges are located. The third part is the outlet chamber which contains the outfall pipe.

Firstly, runoff enters the system through the pretreatment chamber. Here, the heaviest pollutants are separated from the runoff and sink to the bottom. As the runoff fills the pretreatment area, it rises to pass into the filtration chamber. In order to keep any floatables and debris out of this chamber, a full-length hood covers the opening. In addition to removing any remaining trash, debris, and oil/grease, it also protects the cartridges. Once the water filters through the cartridges, it drops into the outlet chamber. Here, water exits the system free of pollutants.

Down Spout Filter

Filters for rooftop runoff treat particulates and soluble pollutants. This is important to protect local bodies of water and the environment from contamination. There is a reaction when water comes in contact with metal roofs, metal components, or metallic roof-mounted equipment. As a result, it releases soluble metals into the water supply. For example, metals like zinc, copper, lead, and aluminum can be carried by stormwater. Additional animal waste and particulate from industrial activities collect on roofs and contribute to the polluted runoff. By using a stormwater downspout filter and other cartridge devices, the surrounding environment is protected from harmful contaminants.
