The Vortex Insert Assembly is a new realization of the simple and economical Vortex Drop method developed for eliminating odor and reducing corrosion in sewer drops, forcemain discharges, pumping station wet wells, and interceptor joint structures. The pre-fabricated assembly installs quickly, and transforms problem drop structures into aerators.

The Vortex Drop Structure (VDS) is a sewer drop with the Vortex Insert Assembly (VIA) installed. It is an effective and proven solution for the problems associated with sewer drops.

The VIA is a simple, pre-fabricated insert for existing or new drop structures. It redirects influent sewage flow to create a slight vacuum, preventing emission of odorous gasses and entraining air into wastewater. It is well suited for odor and corrosion control in all types of sewer drops.
