Jensen Stormwater’s filtration systems incorporate tested and proven 3P Hydrosystem cartridge filters, which provide swirl-concentrating, sedimentation pre-treatment followed by advanced, up-flow filtration in one unit. Designed for diverse applications, these systems are typically deployed as multi-cartridge systems in precast manhole or vaults structures. For smaller developments, the filtration systems are deployed in trench vaults, precast drop and curb inlets, or catch basins.
Our cartridge filtration systems provide both physical and chemical treatment for removing Total Suspended Solids (TSS), metals (Al, Cd, Cr, Cu, Fe, Ni, Pb, Zn), nutrients (phosphorous & nitrogen), and hydrocarbons (grease, oil, etc.). The advanced filtration cartridges use fire-hardened, expanded ceramic spheres engineered to have a very large specific surface area. The media substrate is specially coated with oxides to produce a large cation-exchange capacity (CEC) to target the removal of heavy metals and nutrients. The result is a filtering media well-suited for severe stormwater treatment applications.
Filter media is fine-tuned to address specific pollutants of concern by blending in Granular Activated Carbon (GAC), perlite, zeolite or peat fiber for enhanced bio-filtering. The media is also equal to, or superior to, granulated activated carbon for addressing the removal of pesticides.
