The Go-Filter™ Mobile Treatment System is a modular skid mounted water quality device designed to reduce turbidity levels in discharge waters at construction sites or industrial facilities. Turbidity reduction is accomplished without the use of environmentally harmful flocculants or chemicals. A trash pump mounted on the trailer conveys captured stormwater runoff from an adjacent collection pond, storage vessel, or other water source at a flow rate up to 250 gpm (16 L/s). Coarse material is first removed from the treatment flow through a gross pollutant separator and strainer. Primary treatment is then accomplished by two cross-flow (centrifugal) sand filters configured in parallel. Backwash water is derived from the treatment flow process without the need for a separate backwash water source (e.g., tank). Treated water is discharged directly to a receiving water body or other conveyance mechanism. Both the filtration assembly and trash pump are powered by a single connection using electricity or generator.
The Go-Filter™ can achieve over 90% turbidity reduction with discharge levels on the order of 10 to 20 NTUs (Nephelometric Turbidity Units), depending on the influent level. As opposed to conventional sand filters, cross-flow filtration technology removes sediment particles down to very fine silt and clay sized particles which results in very low turbidity levels thereby meeting the most stringent NPDES permit discharge limits.
Various rental agreements are available for the Go-Filter™. Please contact AquaShield™ to determine which payment plan is best for you.
