Geotextile tube for dewatering

Geotube® dewatering technology has become the dewatering method of choice for organizations around the world. Geotube® dewatering technology is used for projects large and small in the mining, industrial, energy, wastewater and agricultural sectors, and there’s good reason - simplicity and low cost; there are no belts or gears.

Geotube® containers are available in a variety of sizes, depending on your volume and space requirements. Geotube® systems can even be mounted in mobile roll-off containers that can be transported around your property as necessary. It’s one of the most versatile dewatering technologies available and one of the most effective. Volume reduction can be as much as 90%, with high solid levels that make removal and disposal easy.




Geotube® dewatering containers are fabricated from a specially engineered dewatering geotextile of high tenacity polypropylene multifilament and monofilament yarns woven into a stable network. The woven geotextile is then sewn to form the Geotube® dewatering containers to the circumference and length required. Specialist filling ports are fabricated into the container. All the seams are designed to have a strength to meet the expected pumping pressures.


Geotube® dewatering containers are supplied to site and placed into position. Sludge which is treated with specialist polymers is then pumped into the containers and the clear effluent water is then drained leaving the solid remains within the container. When full the containers can be disposed at a landfill or the solids removed and land-applied. This simple but effective process makes Geotube® dewatering containers ideal for the Pulp and Paper industries for primary and secondary lagoon cleanout and for mining processes to remove tailing, coal sludge and other minerals. Geotube® dewatering containers have also been used for water and wastewater treatment dewatering to provide a reduction of up to 85% to 90% in BOD and in agriculture to efficiently manage waste in the dairy, poultry and other agricultural industries.
