SPEL Vortceptor

SPEL Vortceptor GPT is a non-blocking hydrodynamic separator that has a unique screen and treatment action producing low vortex conditions resulting in excellent pollution removal performance and resulting high water quality outcomes.

It separates and captures gross pollutants, sediments, silt, total suspended solids, some nutrients and oil and grease.
