BMP’s newest product, the Turbo Plate® was recently tested at Alden Labs in Holden, MA. At a flow rate of 225 gpm (gallons per minute) the TP18 system, which is comprised of a TP18S, 2 TP18-90s and an 18R SNOUT removed 80% of the sediment with particle sizes ranging from 50-1000 microns. The Turbo Plate system is a sediment baffle or energy dissipator that reduces the velocity and turbulence of stormwater flow with a very small head loss. The reduction in turbulence greatly increases the sediment capture of a sump stormwater structure allowing users to gain far more utility from their stormwater infrastructure. Turbo Plates sizes currently available are: TP12, TP18, TP24 and TP30.
