Enhanced Biofilter Treatment of Stormwater by Optimizing the Residence Time (Redahegn Sileshi, Rober

This paper describes the initial tests investigating the basic hydraulic properties and the clogging potential of Capiphon. A pilot-scale biofilter using a trough 3m long and 0.6 x 0.6m in cross section was used to test the variables affecting the drainage characteristics of Capiphon as an underdrain material (such as length, slope, hydraulic head, and type of sand media).

Examining the Clogging Potential of Underdrain Material for Stormwater Biofilter (Redahegn Sileshi

The tests were conducted using two different species of green algal that were encouraged to grow in the biofilter device for several weeks before draining. The results indicated that the biofouling had only a small effect on the discharge rates, even though the algal growth was extensive

Capiphon Flow Rates

Poor drainage over the years had led to a soggy base under the Hot Tub which, in turn, led to the timber of the tub starting to rot. Water may also have been coming down through the cut into the embankment to add to water splashed out during use. Capiphon belts under paving solved the problem.

Drainage Characteristics of Capiphon Belt and Pipe - Some Comparisons with slotted pipe with sock

Paper presented to the International Commission on Irrigation & Drainage (Adelaide June 2012): Initial studies showed that Capiphon drainage technology out performs slotted pipe with sock (Drain Coil) in soil. It also had a higher flow-rate in free water at low hydraulic head. In soil when flooded, Capiphon commenced flow before, and continued to drain long after Drain Coil had ceased. Its capillary and syphonic action resulted in drawing water upwards, pulling the water table down to at least....
