CULTEC Manifold Components
CULTEC currently manufactures two types of manifolds:
- Internal Manifolds
- External Manifolds
Feed Connectors are inserted into the side portals of the CULTEC chambers to create internal manifold systems. The different model numbers may only be used in conjunction with specific chambers.
The HVLV SFCx2 Feed Connector may only be used with the Contactor 100HD to create a side portal internal manifold.
The HVLV FC-24 Feed Connector may only be used with the Recharger 150XLHD, Recharger 180HD, Recharger 280HD, Recharger 330XLHD, and Recharger V8IHD Intermediate to create a side portal internal manifold.
The HVLV F-110×4 Feed Connector may only be used with the Recharger V8SHD Starter and V8EHD end units to create a side portal internal manifold.
A CULTEC No. 20L™ Polyethylene Liner is placed beneath the feed connector locations to prevent scouring and to provide a smooth surface upon which the stormwater may travel.
When an internal manifold is not desired, you may use the HVLV 180 Header System as an external manifold instead of a conventional pipe manifold.
The HVLV 180BT Blind Tee and HVLV 180SC Straight Connector are used with the HVLV FC-24 Feed Connector to create an external chamber-type manifold.
The HVLV 180 Header System may be used in conjunction with its CULTEC Recharger 280HD and Recharger 330XLHD stormwater chambers. The units have an open bottom to allow for maximum flow volumes at a retarded rate of speed similar to the design of its plastic stormwater chambers. This allows the water to move at a slower rate and infiltrate rather than outflow.
A CULTEC No. 20L™ Polyethylene Liner is placed beneath the HVLV™ Header System to prevent scouring and to provide a smooth surface upon which the stormwater may travel.
Feed connectors are inserted into the HVLV™ Header sections to act as feed lines to the bed of stormwater detention/retention chambers.
The HVLV 180 Header System goes in front of the chamber bed when used with Recharger Models 280HD and 330XLHD. By installing the header first, it presets the center to center spacing of the Recharger chamber rows.
CULTEC Chambers have a higher storage capacity in a lower profile product and require less stone than HDPE pipe.
Advantages over conventional pipe manifolds:
- No haunching
- No critical alignment
- No heavy equipment for placement
- Less burial depth required
- Smaller separation requirements
- Less stone
