Product: Geotube® Dewatering Technology
Application: Mining & Mineral Processing
Location: Wellston, Ohio
A coal washing plant needed to simplify its dewatering operation and lower the related costs.
Their existing method of mechanical dewatering was old and inefficient. It was replaced with the high-volume, low-maintenance Geotube® dewatering technology. The Geotube® dewatering system utilized a project height of 5 feet for the dewatering containers [photo 2].
The coal sludge dewatered to 63% solids inside the Geotube® units. The project achieved nice results with improved quality of effluent water [photo 5].
