The d-Rain Joint Rainwater Filtration System
Bio-Microbics, Inc. has expanded its stormwater treatment line with the d-Rain Joint Exterior Linear Drain Filter Expansion Joint designed for onsite rainwater management. Bio-Microbics, Inc. manufactures innovative, economical and practical solutions, and products that solve onsite water concerns to achieve energy efficiency, and green practices. Developed originally by Bryan White of Arvis Eco to satisfy permeable, pervious driveway requirements in Indiana, the d-Rain Joint uses the low-cost concrete medium that the homeowner wanted and started offering d-Rain Joint to his other high-end code developments as an alternative to expensive pavers.
Urban storm water runoff has become a focus in recent years. In most cities, significant amounts of water fall onto impervious surfaces, such as roads, driveways, parking lots, etc., ending up as run‑off; sheeting across surfaces and picking up more contaminants and pollutants to simply flow out unfiltered to waterways through the storm drains and greatly reduces the amount of water infiltrating the soil. The d-Rain Joint is a simple, low-cost, and robust onsite storm water management alternative compared to other permeable, pervious surface options and can be used wherever a permeable, pervious driveway, parking lot, street or walkway is needed.
The d-Rain Joint system is a highly effective and unique design that allows the use of traditional concrete, asphalt or paver type materials to construct a high performing permeable, pervious surface system. Easy to install like a standard expansion joint in a driveway or walkway, the ADA-compliant d-Rain Joint drainage channel system is less than an inch (1”) wide and is virtually undetectable between the joints of a concrete slab. The product is highly durable material and gives storm water a path to a sub-surface drainage bed; this provides an outlet for surface water to be directed to a drainage bed and collected and held or allowed to percolate back into the soil to conform to environmental conservation and protection requirements. The channel-inserted filter captures sediment to ensure continued effectiveness of the system.
The d-Rain Joint uses rebar (standard steel, uncoated/coated, galvanized, synthetic, or sleeved with heat shrink tubing) through predrilled holes in the product to stabilize and “connect” the d-Rain Joint with poured-in-place 4” concrete slab. The d-Rain Joint is placed on a 4” bed of pea-sized gravel, which is on a 1’ aggregate gravel bed. The d-Rain Joint drainage channels do not extend all the way to the side concrete forms this is so that the channel will become a completely enclosed channel after the concrete has set. The drain, which offers a flow rate of more than 2 gallons per minute per linear foot, installs at the same time as the surface installation.
- Size: 13/16” (width) x 4” (height)
- Standard Lengths: 8′
- Filter media: 10PPI
- Flow Rate: > 2 gallons per minute per linear foot
The d-Rain Joint is a new, innovative and cost effective method for creating permeable, pervious surfaces where LID (low impact development) stormwater management is needed.

Reduces energy consumption and increases MBR technology
LEAPprimary significantly reduces overall energy use, costs and physical space requirements by combining separation, thickening and dewatering of primary wastewater solids into one compact, high-performance unit. It replaces conventional clarification and fine screening in a typical MBR plant. LEAPprimary offers high removal of total suspended solids (50-70 percent) and biochemical oxygen demand (25-40 percent), and the removed solids can be dewatered to 20-30 percent dry matter, minimizing handling costs. Since solids and organic material are removed prior to secondary biological treatment, energy use for biological treatment is reduced.

DEMON Nitrogen Removal Treatment System
DEMON Nitrogen Removal Treatment System
World Water Works’ DEMON treatment system for removal of nitrogen from wastewater provides reliable performance and numerous benefits over traditional nitrification-denitrification systems, making it ideal for municipal and industrial clients that have wastewater streams with high ammonia concentrations.
A DEMON system can play an important role in wastewater treatment energy self-sufficiency, reducing costs, and optimizing any wastewater facility’s footprint. Other major benefits include reductions in ammonia load to the main treatment process, reduced sludge handling volumes, and less greenhouse gas production. More than thirty systems are currently operational using the patented DEMON technology, which was based on extensive academic, lab, field pilot, and full-scale experience.
The DEMON system features ammonia oxidizing bacteria (AOB), which convert half the ammonia to nitrite. A second anaerobic biological process uses Anammox bacteria to convert the combination of nitrite and remaining ammonia directly into nitrogen gas. This system reduces energy requirements by 60 percent, eliminates the need for all chemicals, and produces 90 percent less sludge. The system also features a low carbon footprint – the anaerobic process actually consumes carbon dioxide. The true key to the process success is the patented control strategy and patent pending biomass separation device that enriches the specialized slowly growing biomass. This enhances process robustness and treatment capacity.

The aerator is ideal for a wide variety of applications, including municipal, industrial, agricultural and disaster recovery. It is made of stainless steel, and carries a one-year warranty.
The WWETCO FlexFilter is a simple gravity system with a robust design as a high-rate compressible media filter. The influent liquid applies a hydrostatic force to the compression bladder causing the media to compress. It uses a synthetic compressible media to capture solids in the high-rate filtration process. The combination of tapered media compression, porosity gradient with the media bed and a low flow backwash system make the WWETCO a versatile filer.
BioBarrier Membrane BioReactor utilizes flat sheet membranes for a versatile design and robust process in wastewater recycling. Engineered in a small footprint and immersed directly in the aeration process, the BioBarrier has a high surface area of membrane material in a double plate configuration. Treated water moves through the pores to the space between the films; a pump then extracts the clean water to discharge into the environment. BioBarrier removes biological along with E. Coli and fecal coliform without add on disinfection.
