GEOSYNTHETICS FOR DEWATERING
A cost-effective solution for dewatering wastewater sludges from Municipal treatment facilities, manufacturing plants, mining operations and contaminated waterway sediments is to make use of geosynthetic dewatering systems. Solmax Geotube dewatering technology uses high strength geotextiles with unique filtration and retention properties.
Effective dewatering of wastewater sludge using Geotube dewatering technology is achieved by pumping the slurry, conditioned with flocculant, into the permeable geotextile tube. The proven specialist geotextile allows rapid release of filtrate through the geotextile pore structure, retaining the waste solids and facilitating ongoing dewatering.
In industries such as mining and mineral processing, power and utility, pulp and paper and other industries that produce sludge, Solmax Geotube dewatering technology enables the recovery of valuable materials, provides structural stability, improves water quality, and reduces storage footprint.
It’s one of the most versatile, low-carbon footprint dewatering technologies available for a variety of industries and one of the most effective.
