Precast Concrete Hydrodynamic Vortex Separators

Hydrodynamic Vortex Separator

What are Hydrodynamic Vortex Separators?

A hydrodynamic vortex separator is designed for the effective capture and retention of insoluble particles carried within surface water runoff such as silt, other surface contaminants and some oils. Its design delivers separation across a range of flows in a smaller footprint than conventional gravity separators. It is normally installed within a special chamber at the head of a drainage system and is designed to reduce the amount of solid material passing into the main sewer, thus preventing the risk of reduced hydraulic capacity and blockages occurring within the network and to limit the transport of pollutants passing through the system.

Why Use a Precast Concrete Hydrodynamic Vortex Separator Chamber?

  • Precast concrete is strong and highly durable, providing asset owners with a reassuringly long service life and low whole life costs.
  • Precast concrete is a low carbon, sustainable material made from local materials that can be recycled end of life.
  • Can be used in a variety of traffic and surface runoff environments such as housing developments, retail parks, highways, commercial and industrial areas.
