FILTREXX UNIVERSITY - CORE COURSES
The collective body of research conducted over the last 25 years about the performance of compost for environmental applications is well documented. These courses provide an overview of the many applications for compost filter sock and the specifications critical to their performance. After reading these lessons, you will understand how Filtrexx® products Mimic Nature® to manage rain where it falls.
NATURAL SEDIMENT CONTROL
There are many systems utilized for sediment and erosion control applications, but none can compare to the exceptional performance our Filtrexx® Soxx™ Technology offers. We share how our simple, but ingenious Soxx technology harnesses the following natural design principles:
- Energy dissipation
- Vegetation establishment
Unlike silt fence, straw wattles, or other types of socks, Filtrexx® Soxx™ technology offers superior performance to let water through while keeping silt and clay inside the Soxx™. There are five Filtrexx Mesh specifications that are critical to performance:
- Material Type
- Design Diameter
- Mesh Opening
- Tensile Strength
- Functional Longevity
Filtrexx® FilterMedia™, Alternate FilterMedia™ and GrowingMedia™ are designed to perform under different, yet demanding circumstances. Particle size matters, so depending on the application, Filtrexx will recommend the most suitable media to guarantee appropriate performance.
Performance of sediment control barriers is of increasing concern to designers, regulators, and contractors. In order to evaluate the sediment control performance between various sediment control barriers, these practices must be subject to the same standardized testing procedure or evaluated in controlled side-by-side testing.
Studies show compost biofilters can remove a wide variety of pollutants from storm water, including metals, nutrients, harmful bacteria, oil/petroleum hydrocarbons, and fine sediments. This lesson dives into the data on compost for pollutant removal.
Low Impact Development is a stormwater management strategy that attempts to mitigate the impact of increased water runoff and stormwater pollution. There are a set of design strategies and best management practices to capture, filter, detain and infiltrate stormwater.
