275 Upflow Biofilter
Our 275 Upflow Biofilter is a low-cost, highly effective stormwater filtration system that integrates with both downspouts and pump n' treats process systems. Flow rates for our 275 BioUP biofilters reach up to 65 GPM with a sweet operating spot for maximum efficiency at 30 GPM.
The Upflow Solution
The heart of our treatment process lies with our gravity-based, dual-stage, upflow Biofilters. They use organic, carbon-negative media to strip out the stormwater contaminants. The biochar media strips the total/dissolved metals, BOD, COD, and a limited amount of nutrients from the stormwater.
Stage One- Filtration
The first stage is a container consisting of a filter bag made of an industrial grade 10 oz geotextile. There is a secondary filter screen located at the 1st stage filter container outlet – designed to trap any suspended solids that could potentially bypass the main filter bag.
Stage Two- Metals Removal
In the second stage of treatment, the stormwater is redistributed evenly across the second stage and flows upwards through the biochar media. This media treats the stormwater through adsorption, ion exchange, complexing, biological, and chelating in an upflow process. The biochar media strips out the total/dissolved metals, BOD, COD, and a limited amount of nutrients from the stormwater.
