Geotextile Tube

Geotextile Tube Dewatering & Structural

For All Your Environmental Needs

Geosynthetic tubes, also known as geotextile dewatering bags or dewatering tubes, are specialized containers made from high strength geotextile fabric designed for various civil engineering and environmental applications. These tubes provide an effective and environmentally friendly solution for dewatering, containment, and shoreline protection.

Geotextile sludge tube is tube shaped bags made of porous, weather resistant geotextiles, we separate them into two categories:

  • One type filled with a sand slurry, to form an artificial coastal structure such as breakwaters, dykes, groynes or levees, and we call them structural geosynthetic tubes. 
  • The other type filled with environmental sediments, industrial wastwater, dredging mud, mining sludge and etc. We call them environmental dewatering geobags.

geotube contaminated Sediments

TUBE 70-95 is high efficiency filtration products designed to effectively deposite silt, sludge, sediment and other unwanted materials from your discharge slurry. Dewatering geotextile tube has been frequently used during dredging, mining, lagoon sludge removal, and other sediment removal processes.

mine dewatering

TUBE 70-105 is high efficiency filtration product designed to effectively deposite silt, sludge, sediment and other unwanted materials from your discharge slurry. Dewatering geotextile tube has been frequently used during dredging, mining, lagoon sludge removal, and other sediment removal processes.

geotube food processing

TUBE 79-110 is high efficiency filtration products designed to effectively deposite silt, sludge, sediment and other unwanted materials from your discharge slurry. Geotextile tube has been frequently used during dredging, mining, lagoon sludge removal, and other sediment removal processes.

geotube seawall

TUBE 120-120 is weather resistant geosynthetic tube technology and filled with sand slurry, to form an artificial coastal structure such as a breakwaters, dykes or levees. They are aligned with the shoreline to weaken wave energy and protect against coastal erosion.

geotube dyke

TUBE 175-175 is weather resistant geosynthetic tube and filled with sand slurry, to form an artificial coastal structure such as a breakwaters, dykes or levees. They are aligned with the shoreline to weaken wave energy and protect against coastal erosion.

geotube groynes

TUBE 200-200 is weather resistant geotextile tube technology and filled with sand slurry, to form an artificial coastal structure such as a breakwaters, dykes or levees. They are aligned with the shoreline to weaken wave energy and form as shoreline protection.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the geotextile dewatering tubes?

Historically, it has been used to contain sandy soils to permit their use as flexible, erosion resistance, mass gravity structures in hydraulic and marine applications. More recently, geosynthetic tube has been used of disposing and dewatering various waste streams and contaminated sediments.

What is the geosynthetic tubes size available?

Boatup dewatering tubes have GTVC software, it can simulator varies of sizes depending on your working site space.

Do I need polymer for environmental tube dewatering?

A polymer is usually needed and speeds up the dewatering process, makes for clean discharge water, and saves money. As geosynthetic tubes and polymer work better, it is very desirable to return the decant water back to the mian stream.

How does the dewatering geotextile tube work?

When pumping into the tube begins the water will come out through the fabric and the solids remain. Eventually the fine grain materials will plug the fabric and the tube will pump up like a water balloon, then the filter cake will peel off the geotextile fabric. The tube will then dewater rapidly.

How clean can I get the effluent water?

Normally, with right polymer the effluent can meet TSS requirements. However it is especially important when dewatering contaminated materials or releasing to a fragile environment. To get very clean effluent a second treatment is sometimes required. Also, special care needs to be taken at the initial fill of the tube to prevent solids to pass through the fabric.
