TenCate Geotube®


Dewatering System TenCate Geotube®
Dewatering Methods for small and large amounts of sludge

Part or Complete clearing of waters like:
Ponds, sludge/ sewage sludge ponds, damage ponds, rainwater detention reservoirs, fire water ponds, sludge basins, pond sewage treatment plants, industrial ponds, filter and secondary filter bed.
With the help of a decanter, chamber filter press or the TenCate Geotube® , the sludge can be drained or thickened.

1. Filling
Sludge (dregded material) is being pumped into the TenCate Geotube® Container.
Environmentally-safe polymers are added to the sludge, which makes the solids bind together and water separate.
2. Dewatering
Clear effluent water simply drains from the TenCate Geotube® container through the small pores in the specially engineered textile. Over 99% of solids are captured, and clear filtrate can be collected and recirculated through the system. The decanted water is often of a quality that can be reused/returned for processing of returned to native waterways without additional treatment.
3. Consolidation
Solid materials stay within the pipe, and the volume reduction can be as high as 90 percent. When full, the TenCate Geotube® container and contents can be deposited at a landfill, remain on-site, or the solids can be removed and land-applied when appropiate.
