We have researched and tested media for more than a decade, we've learned what works.
Filtrexx® Media™ is the essential element in Filtrexx® Soxx™ technology. Depending on the final application, Filtrexx Soxx can help reduce, divert, clean and filter stormwater runoff, and the media chosen has a major impact on performance. Whether it is composted or non-composted media, Filtrexx is your partner of choice for selecting sustainable technologies in stormwater management, sediment & erosion control, pollutant removal, living walls, agriculture and gardening applications.
For detailed Filtrexx Media information, specifications and typical performance results, contact a Filtrexx professional today.
Filtrexx® FilterMedia™ is designed for optimum filtration and hydraulic flow. It is used for most Filtrexx sediment and erosion control applications. To ensure proper performance, FilterMedia must meet specifications for particle size (60% retained on 3/8” sieve).
Alternate FilterMedia™ is typically a non-composted wood chip product,
which is suitable for sediment and erosion control applications, but is
not recommended for pollutant removal other than sediment. To ensure proper performance, Alternate FilterMedia must meet specifications for particle size (60% retained on 3/8” sieve).
Filtrexx® GrowingMedia™ is designed for optimum vegetative growth. GrowingMedia is used in Filtrexx vegetated sediment and erosion control applications. It is also used inside GardenSoxx® for agriculture and gardening applications.
Two-thirds of sediment storage capacity is in the media.
Only Filtrexx FilterMedia is certified to meet the necessary flow-through rates specified by both the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and most state regulators.
