Barracuda Stormwater Separator

Protect water quality and remove total suspended solids with the high performance, hydrodynamic Barracuda separator from ADS.

The Barracuda is market-changing, stormwater quality technology. A high-performance, vortex hydrodynamic separator, the Barracuda removes total suspended solids (TSS). Offering quick installation and multiple pipe configurations, the Barracuda provides outstanding value with these features:

  • No elevation loss between the inlet and outlet
  • Flexible inlet/outlet positions (not just 180 degree orientation)
  • Internal bypass for inline installation (where applicable)
  • Revolutionary, patent-pending “teeth” mitigate turbulence in the sump area to prevent resuspension of captured contaminants.
  • In-stock components for quick delivery.
  • Can be provided within a 48” (1220 mm) ADS HP Manhole, factory fabricated and delivered complete to the job site.
  • Installation available in a standard, 48” (1220 mm) precast manhole.
  • Barracuda “teeth” apparatus fabricated and designed for quick and easy field assembly.
  • Easy maintenance using a vacuum truck or similar equipment.
  • Surface inspection and maintenance with no confined space entry.
