TenCate Geosynthetics has pioneered Geotube® Technology for over 50 years.TenCate Geotube® dewatering technology has become the dewatering method of choice for organizations around the world. TenCate Geotube® dewatering technology is used for projects large and small, 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. TenCate 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 for a variety of industries and one of the most effective.

The dewatering containers can be custom-sized to the application, placed in available space between other structures, and removed once dewatering is complete. In some cases, conditioners or polymers are used to promote flocculation to increase dewatering rate, improve solids retention and filtrate quality. Volume reduction can be as much as 90%, with high solid levels that make removal and disposal easy. In some industries such as mining, power and utility, pulp and paper and other general industries that produce sludge, TenCate Geotube® dewatering technology enables the recovery of valuable materials, provides structural stability, improves water quality, or just reduces storage footprint by sometimes 50 to 80%.

Geotube® Tests and Software

TenCate Geosynthetics can help you engineer the Geotube® dewatering operation. The TenCate Geotube® RDT is a simple rapid test that can be used to select the ideal dewatering fabric and determine if a chemical accelerant is required and at what optimum dosage. The Geotube® RDT is a test that will determine the final dewatered and consolidated solids concentration achievable. 

The TenCate Geotube® Simulator software will help determine the safe filling height of the Geotube® dewatering unit while the the TenCate Geotube® Estimator software will determine the quantities of Geotube® dewatering units needed, the filling time required and the final dewatered mass and volume.
