The XTREAMPROTECTOR is designed to filter stormwater run off and remove a large proportion of the contaminants in the process. This filtration device to be implemented into stormwater systems to remove fine sediments, nutrients, heavy metals and phosphorus from stormwater runoff. Once treated this water is then returned into the water system, efficiently keeping our water clean.
The XTREAMPROTECTOR as a hole is a series of stacked filtration disks. Each disk contains two layers of filter media, two increase the amount of surface area for the water to com into contact with, and a propagation media for the liquids movement to be promoted throughout to cause the even distribution on the filter. The system uses gravitational and water hydraulic techniques to force the stormwater runoff throughout the systems filtration layers. The water, once through either filtration media disks, is then funnelled into a middle water propagation media and then moved into channels, one centrally, and one outside the disk, through carefully placed holes in the casing of the filter, to be funnelled upward.
Each disk also contains 6 stormwater channels to allow the water to be filtered through each filtration disk from above and below, doubling the amount of surface area utilises per disk. Once all the filtration disks, the number of disks dependant on the model chosen, have been passed through, and the water level has reached the top of the casing of the stack, the water is then moved into a central dropper tube and then run out of the system into an outlet fitting as clean water.
Interception and attachment techniques
Oil and hydrocarbon capture
Gross pollutant trap
Bypass – Able to retain flow through system in the event of high flow situations, still providing sedimentation and gross pollutant trap processes.
Backwashing – Upon vacuum siphon break, the system backwashes, cleaning the system, reducing maintenance frequency and standing water risks.
Up-flow process – reduces head loss, prevents clogging and allows a higher flow rate
One way air release Valve – allows the use of a vacuum siphon to maintain full flow even at reduced water levels.
Passive Hydraulic Operation – ensures function in the event of power failure
Wide range of configurations – System easily allows for design in multiple filter arrangements in combination, hence able to suit any site demands

Due to the Modular Cartridge design, the sizing options for the XtreamFilter and the simple connectivity of multiple Filters, a large range of arrangements can be configured for any need. Combined this with the high surface area and high flow capacity, the XtreamProtector range can be inserted into any specific locale or any flow rate requirement. Whether deployed singularly into manholes, or in a large arrangement, the XtreamFilter will suit any need.
Housing options are also widely available to choose from, whether deployed with our effectively designed FRP tanks, in concrete casings with a large number of filters, or singularly in manholes or precast vaults, the XtreamProtector is the filtration system for you.
The FRP tank installation follows the same basic process as the installation of our Hydraprotector range and Maxiprotector Range. As the system comes pre-assembled, the installation is simple, fast and easy. A downloadable document with further information on this can be provided on request.
The installation details for the concrete casing Installations are detailed below.
Remove the cover and open
Before entering the system make sure the air is safe per OSHA Standards or use a breathing apparatus. Use low O2, high CO, or other applicable warning devices per regulatory requirements.
Using a vacuum truck remove any liquid and sediments that can be removed prior to entry.
Using a small lift or the boom of the vacuum truck, remove the used stack by lifting them out.
When the stack and drain down modules are removed, disassemble the stacks system into each disk section. From this the removal of each disk is simple, take out each filter media and the water propagation media and replace.
Reassemble each stack and secure into position.
Clean the Riser pipes and channel pipes, inspect, and reinstall the stack into position.
