FILTREXX ENVIROSOXX POLLUTANT FILTER SOCK

Filtrexx EnviroSoxx Pollutant Removal Filter

EnviroSoxx stops pollutants from leaving your site.

EnviroSoxx® is the most versatile and cost effective filter for storwater pollutant removal. A passive filtration system ready to install on any site, EnviroSoxx targets the most common pollutants in stormwater runoff, particularly in urban watersheds, sensitive receiving waters, and Total Maximum Daily Load - TMDL (§303d) listed water bodies. EnviroSoxx help industrial stormwater permit holders/MS4s comply with their permits, easily and quickly. EnviroSoxx can be applied on bare soil, vegetation, or impervious surfaces in the path of sheet flow or concentrated flow to target stormwater pollutants.

APPLICATIONS

  • In swales, bioswales, ditches, or channels
  • Around site perimeters or contaminated areas
  • Across landscapes or impervious surfaces
  • Around curb or drain inlets or outfalls
  • As flow or filtration baffles
  • Pre-treatment for bioretention, rain garden, storm water ponds, or similar storm water treatment systems
  • Flow velocity reduction
  • Infiltration enhancement
  • Compliance with industrial or municipal storm water permits, part of TMDL, Green Infrastructure, or Low Impact Development ordinances
  • Treatment on or around animal feeding operations, agricultural cropping systems, and mining operations
  • As an integral component of a holistic, treatment train approach to site stormwater management

ADVANTAGES

  • Reduces stormwater pollutant loads
  • Fits existing infrastructure
  • Easy to maintain & replace
  • Third-party researched
  • Use on hard & impervious surfaces such as pavement/asphalt without the need to trench or stake
  • Cost-effective system
  • EXTREME durable mesh stands up to hard surfaces and harsh site conditions

REMOVAL RATES

EnviroSoxx is available in two filter blends to target common pollutants.
Advanced Blend: One filter targets the four common pollutant groups.
Industrial Blend: Targets only heavy metals and hydrocarbons.

Removal rates vary by pollutant and are based on third-party research, actual removal rates may vary and are highly dependent on site specific environmental conditions including flow rate, flow volume, pollutant concentration, pollutant load, proper installation, maintenance, and design. See Research References below.

3-WAY BIOFILTRATION

EnviroSoxx contains compost FilterMedia™ plus natural sorbents used to increase pollutant removal capacity, and to reduce pollutant transport in runoff and absorption by plants. EnviroSoxx is filled with all natural materials.

When designing a passive filtration system, water gets cleaner as it passes through multiple filters – therefore a combination of inlet protection, runoff diversion, channel protection, and outfall filtration using EnviroSoxx is typically recommended. EnviroSoxx can also be stacked in a pyramid style to increase the capacity of the system. Replacement of EnviroSoxx filters is designed according to site conditions, but is typically recommended on a quarterly basis.

Biofiltration is a technique to control pollution by using living material to capture and biologically degrade process pollutants. A 3-way biofiltration system entails the following areas:

  • Physical: it traps sediment in matrix of varying pore spaces and sizes
  • Chemical: it binds and adsorbs pollutants in storm runoff
  • Biological: it degrades various compounds with bacteria and fungi
