A Proven Stormwater Separator

The SciCLONE® Hydrodynamic Separator by Bio Clean Environmental, a Forterra Company recently received verification in accordance with the International Organization of Standardization (ISO 14034) of Environmental Management, Canada’s Environmental Technology Verification (ETV). The technical review was conducted by Centre for Advancement of Water and Wastewater Technologies (CAWT) under the guidance of GLOBE Performance Solutions. Data from independent lab testing under the NJDEP filter protocol provided the basis for the SciCLONE® Separator’s performance claims.

ISO 14034 ETV is an international standard developed with Canadian participation (supported by the Standards Council of Canada and led by Environment and Climate Change Canada) that provides a protocol for third-party verification of technology performance claims. ISO 14034 ETV acts as a “seal of approval” in order to validate and properly verify the “performance claims of innovative technologies”.

During the capture test, the Bio Clean SciCLONE® HDS device, with a false floor set to 50% of the manufacturer’s recommended maximum sediment storage depth and a constant influent test sediment concentration of 200 mg/L, removes 70, 71, 60, 54, 51, 45, and 39 percent of influent sediment by mass at surface loading rates of 40, 80, 200, 400, 600, 1000, and 1400 L/min/m2, respectively.

SciCLONE® is the first separator to offer efficient hydrodynamic separation. Its simple design allows for high TSS removal efficiencies, internal bypass, and efficient capture/retention of free floating oils and trash. It is widely considered the easiest separator to maintain in the industry.

Bio Clean Environmental now offers two stormwater products that carry the ETV seal of approval: The SciClone® Hydrodynamic Separator and the Kraken™ Filter .
