Full Trash Capture (FTC) device description: REM TRITON Bioflex Trash Guard (BFTG) Filter
REM TRITON™ Bioflex Trash Guard (BFTG) Filters are an effective and economical solution to help Municipal Regional Stormwater NPDES Permit (MRP) permittees achieve no visual impact from trash by the year 2022.
The San Francisco Regional Water Control Board staff has approved REM TRITON BFTG Filters as a standalone Full Trash Capture (FTC) device.
REM TRITON BFTG Filters are easily installed inside virtually any size and type of catch basin structure. They fit below the grate in drop inlet and combination grate & curb inlet as well as below the curb-cut inside curb inlet catch basins.
REM TRITON BFTG Filters utilize a patented stainless steel vertical media cartridge system that houses a three dimensional filter media called Bioflex (BFTG). Bioflex provides continued treatment flow-through when most two dimensional sieve type filters (such as perforated screens) experience occlusion and blinding. The increased treatment rate reduces pooling and trash bypass during heavier rain events.
TRITON Filters hold trash and debris on a filter base plate mounted 10 to 20” below the road grade level allowing maintenance crews easy access and eliminating any necessary entry into confined spaces by service personnel. Filter media cartridges cam-lock in place and are easily removed if access below the filter is required.
