WISY Vortex Fine Filter WFF150

The WISY WFF150 Vortex Filter is designed to separate solids from water and can be used for buildings with 5,500 SF of roof area.  A single unit can filter precipitation off of up to 5,500 sq. ft. of roof area to be reused for site irrigation, toilet, and urinal flushing, janitorial use, laundries, fire protection, evaporative cooling tower make-up, process water, or other non-potable uses. The filter is typically installed in-line with the piping system to direct debris to the stormwater system and divert up to 95% of clean rainwater to a rainwater storage tank. Multiple WFF150 units can be used to cover larger roof areas greater than 5,50 sq. ft.  RMS does not recommend the WFF150 to be used when collecting from green-roofs.  

The inlet and debris outlet elevation height difference of the WFF150 is 20”, the inlet and clean water outlet elevation difference is 10.5”. 

Design Principle

The harvested rainwater flows out of the horizontal inlet pipe into the WFF150 and is drawn in a circular (vortex) motion from inflow level down to the filter insert.  By exploiting water’s natural adhesive forces, the harvested rainwater is drawn through the vertical fine filter and passes through the clean water outlet into the storage tank.  The filtered dirt particles are then diverted to the storm drain.  

The filter insert cannot reach its maximum efficiency until the filter mesh has become completely saturated with water.  This process can take up to 2 minutes if the filter insert was initially completely dry.  During this period, the initial dirt particles from the roof are flushed directly to the storm drain.  This is why the vortex filter can function as a “first flush” rainwater pre-filter and thus meets the requirements defined by ARCSA/ASPE/ANSI Standard 63 for Rainwater Catchment Systems.
