SILTSOXX™ Sediment Filter

SiltSoxx™ is the original compost silt sock filled with Filtrexx® FilterMedia™. Studies have shown that the Filtrexx® SiltSoxx™ outperforms silt fence, hay bales and straw wattles. The SiltSoxx™ is a three-dimensional tubular soil erosion sediment control and stormwater filtration device typically used as a silt fence replacement for perimeter control, filtration of sediment and soluble pollutants – such as phosphorus and petroleum hydrocarbons.

Soil Erosion Sediment Controls

Filtrexx Perimeter control is a method of soil erosion sediment control Best Management Practices (BMP’s) that acts as a barrier to retain sediment on a construction site. The goal of installing soil erosion sediment control devices is to slow and hold water, filter runoff, and promote the settling of sediment via ponding behind the sediment control device.

The Filtrexx compost sediment siltation silt sock stops pollutants in two ways:

• Deposition- sediment settles out as water ponds behind the barrier

• Filtration- sediment is trapped as water passes through the barrier

Advantages:

• The silt sock does not have to be trenched or disturb any soil. It does not damage tree roots like silt fence trenching.

• Sediment is stopped in its tracks.

• 50% more design capacity and flow through than silt fence.

• Easily removed and minimal disposal costs.

• Inlet Protection: The silt sock is used as a sediment filter will restrict silt and sediment from going into catch basins and be used as a curb sediment containment system.

• Check Dams: Use as a check dam device in stormwater ditches, channels, and swales on or near land disturbing activities.

 

Filtrexx® Soxx™ Meet Specifications:

Filtrexx Sock Surpasses Regulatory Criteria

Filtrexx products meet all EPA, AASHTO, USACE and USDA-NCRS as well as the regulations of most state agencies throughout the U.S.

Sediment: It’s all about it

FilterMedia™ is designed to mimic nature. Our use of an aged composted Filtrexx® FiterMedia™ or alternative Filtrexx® FilterMedia™ harnessed inside the tubular mesh provides the principals of containment, sediment filter, retention, detention, energy dissipation and vegetation establishment. Two-thirds of the silt stopping capacity is inside the SiltSoxx™.

Only Filtrexx®FilterMedia™ is certified to meet the necessary flow-through rates specified by both the EPA and most state regulators. Our FilterMedia is constantly tested by a third party lab and includes compliance with the State of Massachusetts MassDOT M1.06.0 specifications.

Using Filtrexx® products is your assurance that the product:

• ONLY Filtrexx® has the independent test data to prove its performance. Inferior knock off sock manufacturers try to stipulate that their product is equal to Filtrexx mesh but are not.

• Meets EPA and most state specifications for perimeter sediment control. The Filtrexx® SiltSoxx™ is approved in all six New England states.

• Avoids the risk of regulatory non-compliance

• Eliminates costly re-install and non-compliance costs for contractors

• Cost savings over the life of the project.

Since our palletized product line conforms with Filtrexx® FilterMedia™ guidelines an installer does not need to be Filtrexx Certified. Most are not aware that Filtrexx® silt sock pallets can be installed up to 3 times faster than conventional blower truck installations. That’s installation rates of 700′-1000′ per hour and not having to shoulder the expense and annual maintenance of a $200,000 blower truck.

 

Filtrexx Northeast Systems Palletized Installation and Support Services:

Having a vast distribution network, we provide support and training to installation contractors. Whether you are a WBE, DBE or MBE, Filtrexx Northeast Systems will show you how lower labor costs per linear foot installed and be more profitable in this competitive soil erosion market. With the strongest polypropylene and cotton meshes in the market, our green/black ribbed and white silt socks can be seen everywhere on construction sites and along roadways throughout New England.

Sediment Control BMP: More than Just Mesh

What makes Filtrexx mesh different? Unlike fence or inferior sock, Filtrexx lets water through while keeping silt and clay inside the Soxx. Only Filtrexx has the independent test data to prove its performance.

What’s so special about Filtrexx FilterMedia? Meeting particle size specification. Two-thirds of the silt stopping capacity is IN the Soxx. Only Filtrexx FilterMedia is certified to meet the necessary flow-through rates specified by both the EPA and most state regulators.

Why choose Filtrexx Certified? Either through a Filtrexx Certified Installer or authorized palletized product dealer, you’ll save time and money because our products meet spec. The Filtrexx Certified Installer network is the largest and best in our industry.
