Light Industrial

Managing an Ongoing Challenge

TenCate Geotube® industrial fabrics deliver solutions for many light industrial applications.  From our complete product line for the dewatering market, we offer materials that are cost-effective for containment and dewatering.  For many industrial applications, dewatering is a necessary evil.  It disrupts operations, adds cost, and requires complicated and expensive equipment. But this doesn't have to be the case.  One of the real values of TenCate Geotube® dewatering technology is that is can provide a quick lagoon cleanout solution, or it can add capacity by making drying beds much more efficient. TenCate Geotube® dewatering technology can be used at many industrial sites because it can fit any space limitation.  Containment and dewatering can be a temporary or permanent operation.  This technology can reduce the volume of waste materials by as much as 90%. It can even be used to dewater hazardous materials.

In some cases, companies have dewatered the material in their lagoons using TenCate Geotube® dewatering technology, then used the solid-filled TenCate Geotube® containers as berms to expand the capacity of their lagoons.  Dewatering efficiency can be improved because TenCate Geotube® containers protect the dewatered solids from becoming saturated again in wet weather.  And Geotube® containers can be stacked on top of each other to further add capacity.

TenCate Geotube® dewatering containers are routinely specified by consulting engineers for cost-effective containment and dewatering.  Since the introduction of TenCate Geotube® technology to this industry, programs of sludge residue management and control have yielded tremendous operational cost savings. TenCate Geotube® dewatering technology provides the right solution for your project specifications.
