Fabco’s FabGuard™ media, designed to reduce coliform bacteria found in stormwater, industrial wastewater and municipal wastewater, was recently registered with the EPA. Field and laboratory testing of the FabGuard™ material has shown efficient bacteria reduction, even at relatively high flows rates. Here are more details about FabGuard™ and how Fabco can tailor it to the needs of your project.

How does the FabGuard™ technology work?

FabGuard™ is an open cell foam material that contains an antimicrobial agent that has proven effective in reducing coliform bacteria found in stormwater. The Antimicrobial agent is a patented chemical technology that, when applied to the FabGuard™ base material, forms a colorless, odorless, positively charged coating which bonds to the surface. At the microscopic level, imagine a layer of electrically charge fibers or spikes covering the surface of the FabGuard™ media. Coliform bacteria contained in stormwater that contact the treated FabGuard™ surface are punctured and neutralized.

With FabGuard™, Fabco offers various engineered field solutions for reducing coliform bacteria in stormwater, industrial wastewater and municipal wastewater.

FabGuard™ material can be implemented using Fabco’s replaceable cartridge technology for use in our catch basin insert line (StormBasin™) or in our StormSafe™ underground vaults. For a high-flow end-of-pipe solution, our patented Helix™ systems provide the highest treatment flow rates in a compact, economical design.

Fabco’s Helix™ is a sub-surface vault system that can be configured to treat stormwater flow rates up to 9 CFS. The scalable vault can be used as a standalone BMP, or as a secondary filtration device following pretreatment via a land based system or manufactured treatment device.  Click here to learn more.
