Freytech presents ecoStorm plus, an affordable stormwater filtration system designed to remove sediments, heavy metals and nutrients. Surface water runoff contains significant concentrations of heavy metals and other soluble pollutants. Structural Stormwater treatment systems are effective in removing sediments, but do not remove solubles such as heavy metals and nutrients (phosphates and nitrates).

See why ecoStorm plus is the most cost effective stormwater filtration system on the market, setting new standards for stormwater regulatory requirements.
All ecoStorm plus units are equipped with a central overflow and maintenance pipe to handle peak flow rates and allow access to the sediment storage chamber. While ecoStorm plus is typically designed for gravity treatment of stormwater drainage, it has the flexibility to accommodate other methods of pollutant delivery. The patented concrete filters can be modified to accommodate various applications and flowrates.
Sediments are removed from stormwater by gravitation and trapped in the base section of the ecoStorm plus unit. A small amount of sediment will accumulate temporarily on the lower surface of the filter (PlusFilter). The design of the ecoStorm plus system allows self cleaning.
Vertical filtration in the pollution control pit and constant immersion in water of the PlusFilter prevents formation of a film on the lower side of the filter, which might otherwise lead to clogging.
Pollutants like hydrocarbons and dissolved heavy metals are adsorbed by the modified porous concrete surface.
The PlusFilter buffers the pH of the stormwater, which is typically acidic, hence promoting precipitation and accumulation of dissolved substances. The fine pores of the filter allow water to seep slowly through the media providing greater opportunity for interaction between water and the alkaline composition of the filter.
The frequency of sediment removal and filter replacement are dependent on siteconditions and pollutant loads. Sediment, which may contain heavy metals removed during the cleaning process, is disposed either manually or by mechanical suction. Permeable concrete filters (PlusFilter) in the Pollution Control Pit are self-cleaning and are expected to remain effective for long periods (up to 2 years) without replacement. However, new filters should be considered at more frequent intervals where pollution loads are heavy. Replacing filters is an easy and inexpensive process.
