ROCKVILLE, MD, May 30, 2012 /CNW/ - New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) has granted Final Certification to Imbrium® Systems' Jellyfish® Filter, based on rigorous field testing conducted according to the Technology Acceptance and Reciprocity Partnership (TARP) protocol. The NJDEP certification, as with the recent NJCAT verification, is based on the Jellyfish Filter's field test performance. The innovative membrane-based technology demonstrated removal of 89% of total suspended solids (TSS) from stormwater at flow rates much higher than is possible with conventional granular media-based filters.
"We're excited about the NJDEP certification of our technology. This is a big milestone for our company," stated Joel Garbon, product manager for Imbrium Systems. "The Jellyfish Filter continues to impress regulatory agencies with its outstanding pollutant removal performance at very high flow rates, which offers a high value, small-footprint solution for the stormwater design community."
Extensive third-party field testing has demonstrated 89% TSS removal at a flow rate of 80 gpm per cartridge, which is vastly higher than the 10 - 20 gpm flow rating of other filter cartridges.
"The Jellyfish Filter also removes high levels of nutrients, metals, oil, and gross pollutants. But most engineers who have examined the Jellyfish are impressed by its high flow rate treatment, low driving head requirement, and simple maintenance. Jellyfish is the only stormwater filter with cartridges that can be easily backflushed or rinsed and re-used. This is a big advancement, and ensures low-cost maintenance and sustainability," noted Garbon.
