At StormwateRx, we specialize in industrial stormwater pollutant removal. We understand the needs of industrial customers, and we know how stormwater acts on pollutants in industrial environments. This expertise helps us cut to the chase.

Oil-Water Gravity Separation

Divider text here
Clara (klar-uh) is a patented† oil-water gravity separator for industrial stormwater treatment. This below-ground, standalone system removes dirt, oil and floatables by gravity separation. Clara is recommended when suspended solids are greater than 200 mg/L and oil is greater than 10 mg/L. With the built-in internal high flow bypass, pollutants are trapped in this below-ground structure even during peak runoff events. For more complete pollutant removal, Clara can be installed in a treatment train with Aquip and Purus. Click Here To Learn More! 

Clara Features
  • Traps pollutants within the system
  • Removes floatable materials, oil and dirt 
  • Treatment flow rates of up to 1400 gpm 
  • Oil storage capacity of up to 820 gallons

A Versatile Stormwater Filter

A Versatile Stormwater Filter Aquip (uh-kwip) is a patented† media filtration system for enhanced industrial stormwater treatment. Aquip is available in several performance levels, each specifically designed for the removal of stormwater pollutants such as suspended solids, turbidity, heavy metals (including dissolved metals), organics (e.g. BOD, volatile hydrocarbons, PCBs, PAHs), and nutrients (e.g. nitrogen and phosphorus). Targeted metals include copper, zinc, iron, lead, aluminum, nickel, cadmium. Aquip is typically installed above ground with a single pump station in a simple, easy-to-use configuration.

Aquip’s Features
  • Removes particulates and dissolved pollutants
  • Uses passive filtration, no chemicals, no backwash
  • Open top for easy access and operation
  • Operates unattended, 24/7
  • Gravity flow-through system, no moving parts
  • Simple and safe effluent sampling 
  • Available structures include steel, concrete and plastic

A High-Performing Stormwater Polisher

Purus Polishing is a collection of industrial stormwater treatment technologies designed to remove small particulates, colloidal solids, dissolved metals, nitrate, toxic organics and bacteria to low levels. Purus requires relatively clear inlet water with a TSS concentration of less than 20 mg/L. To achieve this level of clarity, Purus systems are most often used downstream of Aquip filtration or another high-performing particulate-reduction technology.

The Purus technologies can be applied individually or in a series to reduce most pollutants to below benchmarks or numeric action levels. With this level of stormwater pollutant removal possible, the Purus system is ideal for industries where higher concentrations of specific pollutants are unavoidable or where more stringent or watershed-specific water quality standards apply.

Purus Features 
  • Flow matched to upstream treatment rates
  • Slip-stream treatment configuration available
  • Freeze protection available
  • Targets individual site-specific parameters
  • Removes trace pollutants in hard to treat applications

Zinc-B-Gone for Roof Runoff

Zinc-B-Gone (patent pending†) is a sorptive media filtration system for industrial stormwater roof runoff applications. This stormwater treatment BMP removes dissolved metals such as zinc, copper and lead in a simple and easy-to-use configuration. Zinc-B-Gone is typically installed above ground in-line with a rooftop downspout, and comes scalable up to 1200 gpm for rooftops 0.5 acres and up. Click Here To Learn More!

Zinc-B-Gone Features
  • Removes dissolved zinc, copper and lead
  • Super-duty tank for many years of service
  • Ideal for TSS
  • Uses passive filtration, no chemicals, no backwash
  • Open top for easy access and operation
  • Operates unattended, 24/7
  • Gravity flow-through system, no moving parts

Zinc-B-Gone Applications

Zinc-B-Gone’s simple configuration can be used in various applications such as: 
  • Industrial stormwater roof runoff
  • Cooling tower blow down 
  • Mining operations runoff
  • Galvanized application runoff
