Economy Sediment Filter

There are no excuses for pumping dirty water onto the road or pavement and risking a costly fine. Our entry-level filter will fit all budgets and cleans water to Environment Agency accepted levels (100µm). The filter media is made from a non-woven geotextile.

Lightweight and easy to use it is suitable even for one-man jobs.

The Budget Filter is designed for capturing 20kg sediment before being replaced. This may equate to a single job or a small number of low usage jobs. When it becomes harder, or impossible, to pump water through, the filter is clogged. 

UKPN Works With Green Rhino to Develop Roadside Dewatering Filters

A new filter bag has been developed in partnership with the UK Power Networks Environment Team and a consultancy called Capture Green. The introduction of the Green Rhino has prevented any potential for localised pollution by fitting over the pumps discharge pipe and capturing any silt and contaminant residue. After a successful trial of the system it is now standard. UK Power Networks are leading best practice in this area being the first utility to adopt this filtering process.

Green Rhino Technology Part of UKPN Innovation Strategy

Green Rhino® technology is being deployed by UK Power Networks on street-works to benefit the company, our customers, and the environment. Before the introduction of the Green Rhino it was accepted practice to pump water out of a street-works hole and discharge to a grass verge, if available, or down the street if not. If the water was heavily contaminated with oil and/or sediment, the company would have to arrange for a tanker to pump out the water and take it off site for disposal at a cost of approximately £1,000. UK Power Networks worked closely with Capture Green to develop the Green Rhino, an oil and sediment filter, for use when dewatering small excavations prior to undertaking work. The Green Rhino prevents the need to tanker away lightly contaminated water and also ensures any water that is pumped is clean. A Green Rhino bag costs £150 and is re-usable, with the technology subsequently having been adopted by other DNOs and in the gas, water and telecommunications sectors.
