wisy Vortex150 rainwater prefilter
Wisy Vortex150 rainwater prefilter is designed to separate solids from water and can be used for buildings with 5,500 sq. ft. of roof area. Multiple WFF150 units can be used to cover larger roof areas greater than 5,500 sq. ft.
How It Works?
Incoming rainwater is directed into the self cleaning prefilter, the first flush of rainwater moves past the filter mesh and out the dirty water outlet providing a first flush action. Once the filter mesh is sufficiently wetted then rainwater moves through the filter mesh. Rainwater is filtered to 320 microns and rainwater is directed to the tank. Some rainwater continues past the screen out the dirty water outlet, providing a self cleaning action.
The most important step in limiting contamination is pre-filtering, which will remove solid particles containing both the bacteria and the nutrients feeding the bacteria. The pre-filter will also aerate and oxygenate the water reducing the bacteria. Aeration can also help oxidize some metals in the water like iron, which precipitate to the surface and are removed by the skimming overflow.
Not recommend to use the wisy Vortex150 rainwater prefilter when collecting from green-roofs.
