Volume Filter – VF2

Volume Filter VF2


Rainwater filter for bigger roof areas. Filter for installation in a concrete manhole (Ø 1000 mm). Standard concrete shafts or similar load bearing chambers can be used. The filter can be delivered to directly to the site, yet pre-assembled in the shaft.

Two step cleaning system, therefore high level of filtering efficiency, independent of flow rate.

Due to the steep inclination of the filter cartridge the dirt is continuously cleaned away into the sewer. The connection to the sewer is installed at the shaft. The dirt falls down on the bottom of the shaft and is washed away with the next strong rainfall.

Relative connection capacity according to DIN 1986 for roof areas up to 1200 m². Because of a Bypass-Installation a bigger area can be connected.

Inlet rainwater DN 200
Outlet into tank DN 150
Outlet into sewer DN 200
Height difference between inlet and outlet 320 mm.

The filter has to be cleaned depending on the contamination 1 – 2 times during the year.

How it Works

1. As water arrives the level builds up and flows evenly across the width of the filter cascade.

2. The largest dirt particles flow across the primary filter cascades directly to the sewer.

3. Pre filtered water then flows over the secondary filter sieve (Mesh size 0.4 x 1 mm). Due to the special mesh structure of the sieve, any dirt falls directly down onto the bottom of the shaft. In case of heavy rainfalls, the filter has more loss, as the water washes away the filtered dirt into the sewer.

4. The cleaned water is being absorbed in the lower tank and directed through a tube DN 150 (160mm OD) into the storage.

5. Dirt goes to the sewer through the shaft.
