Ultra Trench Drain Filter
Oil-Absorbing Trench Drain Filter Fabric
Ultra Trench Drain Filters remove the oil and sediment that flows through trench drains and pipes. Stormwater trenches can often be overlooked when it comes to compliance. However, they are subject to the same EPA and Clean Water Act requirements as catch basins and other stormwater drains. The Ultra Trench Drain filter is the answer to removing harmful oils and gasoline from stormwater runoff in trench drains.

Trench Drain Filter Fabric Details
The Ultra Trench Drain Filter gets it's hydrocarbon filtration muscle from incorporating strips of Ultra X-Tex filtration fabric. As water runs through the trench, it flows through these oil-absorbing strips, capturing sand, silt, and sediment in between the strips, with oil also being absorbed. The Trench Drain Filter Fabric has a 10' x 2' section of filter strips. Nylon cord is sewn along the entire length of the fabric for added strength. Create the filter length needed by connecting multiple Ultra Trench Filters together through the loops on each end. Tie off the end of the Ultra Trench Filter with the included 10' cord, anchoring it securely in place.
The Ultra Trench Drain Filter helps you comply with various regulations and rules. These include: Stormwater Management Regulation 40 CFR 122.26, National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES), and Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL).

Ultra Trench Drain Filter Applications
When you need to remove pollutants from open channels or trench drains, the Ultra Trench Drain Filter is the answer. It traps sediment and absorbs any oil and hydrocarbons that are present. You can use the Ultra Trench Filter with products like the Ultra Drain Guard, the Ultra Curb Guard or the Ultra Grate Guard, to give you stormwater management products and plan an extra dose of pollution protection.
Use the trench filter in concrete trench drains with downstream flows of water. These trench drains can sometimes be overlooked in stormwater management, but with this stormwater protection product, you can make sure that water flowing downstream is free from oil and sediment.
Trench Drain Filter Fabric FAQs
The Ultra Trench Drain Filter is made from strips of Ultra X-Tex, sewn together with a nylon cord. The Ultra X-Tex filter strips are made of a proprietary blend of fibers that naturally absorb oils and greases from water. The water itself will flow through these strips while the hydrocarbons are held in the strips of fabric.
Using the 10-foot cord, you can secure the trench filter by staking it to the ground or tying it to the storm drain grate (or other nearby structures).
