Catch Basin Bacteria Filters

basin bacteria filtersSmart Sponge Plus features an antimicrobial agent chemically and permanently bound in a proprietary process to the Smart Sponge polymer surface. It destroys bacteria such as enterococcus, Escherichia coli and fecal coliforms, while also attracting and encapsulating oils and other hydrocarbons. Fits most catch basins and curb inlets. Multiple shapes and configurations make Smart Sponge effective as Passive Skimmers, Bilge Skimmers, Line skimmers, etc.

Smart Sponge® technology is at the heart of our catch basin filters product innovation. Its unique molecular structure is based on innovative polymer technologies that are chemically selective to hydrocarbons. Smart Sponge® fully encapsulates recovered oil, resulting in a substantially more effective response that prevents absorbed oil from leaching. It is also capable of removing low levels of oil from water, thereby successfully removing sheen. In addition, the Smart Sponge® remains buoyant in calm or agitated water, permitting it to remain in place until fully saturated and resulting in no wasted product. Once oil is absorbed, the Smart Sponge® transforms the pollutants into a stable solid for easy recycling, providing a closed-loop solution to water pollution.
