Cultec Offers New High-Capacity Recharger® 900 HD Stormwater Chamber
878 Federal Rd., P.O. Box 280
Brookfield, CT, 06804 1830, USA
BROOKFIELD, CT - CULTEC, Inc. introduces a new Recharger® 900HD detention/retention chamber to the stormwater market. The ultra-high capacity model offers the benefit of maximizing storage while reducing installation area.
The 900HD is now the company's largest capacity model, measuring 9.25' long, 78" wide and 48" tall. It features a bare chamber storage capacity of 123.34 ft³/unit and a minimum installed storage of 190.73 ft³/unit. Systems constructed with the tallest available chambers typically allow customers to use fewer units to achieve the needed storage volume and require less labor, resulting in the lower cost per cubic foot. Additionally, such systems decrease a required installation footprint.
The introduction of the Recharger 900HD brings the total number of CULTEC's chamber sizes to 10, further expanding the selection to help accommodate almost any site parameter. The 900HD is optimal for replacing large diameter pipe, stacked or crate systems and allows for additional site development. It features CULTEC's unique side portal internal manifold feature and works together with HVLV FC-24 Feed Connectors to allow manifolding to take place at any point within the system for maximum design flexibility. Each unit has the ability of accepting up to a 24" diameter pipe into its endwall to manage greater flow rates.

In 1986, CULTEC introduced its Contactor® and Recharger® HDPE septic and stormwater chambers and helped begin a revolution toward the use of plastic construction products. Since then, several product developments and strategic alliances have made CULTEC a cutting-edge R&D-based manufacturer. CULTEC chambers can be used as subsurface retention or detention systems and as replacements for ponds, concrete structures or pipe and stone installations.
CULTEC manufactures 10 different chamber sizes ranging from 8.5" - 48" tall to accommodate almost any site parameter. The chambers' perforated sidewalls and fully open bottoms promote maximum infiltration capability and allow for the transfer of high volumes of water at a low velocity. The units can be installed singularly or in series in single- or multi-layer beds.
In addition, CULTEC developed its own in-line side portal manifold system, which eliminates the need for a conventional pipe header system, and water quality unit for maintaining CULTEC chamber systems. CULTEC products meet H-25 wheel load requirements and have a 10-year warranty.
CULTEC's technical staff offers free design assistance including preliminary calculations and job-specific CAD details. A free CULTEC StormGenie(TM) -- AutoCAD® Plug-In for designing CULTEC systems and a free HydroCAD CULTEC custom edition is also available from the company. In addition, CULTEC products can contribute to the U.S. Green Building Council's credits, under the LEED rating system, when the project is designed per LEED requirements.
