Stormwater runoff may enter the Deflective Screening Device (DSD) via one or more inlet pipes or by grated inlet. Water enters the inlet bay where it is directed to the curved inlet channel. This channel is curved and directs flow into the vortex chamber at an increased velocity along its inner wall creating a clockwise flowing vortex. This vortex helps to capture all trash, debris and suspended solids in the center of the chamber. This vortex continues downward into the screening cylinder area of the device. The water flow caused by the vortex creates a “self-cleaning” effect along the surface of the screen preventing clogging of the screen. As treated water passes through the screen it rises toward the outlet. The Oil baffle traps and retains oils, grease and other hydrocarbons from flowing toward the outlet. Flows above the screen capacity bypass over the weir and straight to the outlet pipe. This configuration prevents any scouring of previously captured trash or sediment during higher flows.
Maintenance & Installation
Installing the Deflective Screening Device (DSD) is quick and easy. The system is composed of a base section, middle riser with holes for pipe connections and internals pre-installed, a top, risers to bring access to finish surface and access covers. Installation of the system follows the same procedures as standard manhole installation. We carry the structures in inventory allowing for short lead times to meet you project schedule.
The Deflective Screening Device (DSD) can be accessed from the finish surface and cleaned using a standard vacuum truck. Access into the sump chamber below is provided through the separation cylinder. With trash and sediment centralized in this area, maintenance can be quickly completed to reduce overall cleaning costs.
