TenCate Geotube® industrial fabrics deliver solutions for pulp and paper applications. From our complete product line for the dewatering market, we offer materials that can be pumped to capacity with sludge and dewatered repeatedly. The effective reduction of sludge can range from 20% to as high as 80% depending on application, always yielding tremendous capital and operational cost savings.
TenCate Geotube® containers provide successful containment and dewatering of all types of sludge residue. They can easily handle wide ranges of incoming solids from low (<1%) to high (>25%), with flow ranges from zero to thousands of gallons per minute, both batch and continuous. TenCate Geotube® dewatering technology can be located on-site without affecting mill operations. TenCate Geotube® units have proven to provide dewatering and containment without odor issues of both the solids and the filtrate. The rapidity with which a TenCate Geotube® dewatering operation can be set up has also been an advantage in paper mill applications, particularly in emergency situations where mills ran the risk of having to shut down. TenCate Geotube® containers provide a safe, low cost, storage system allowing mills to decide the best time to remove solids based on cash flow and market conditions. Biofuel raw materials from pulp and paper waste streams will be one of the key resources of the mills of tomorrow, with TenCate Geotube® units providing the low cost, efficient, staging system for short- and long-term needs.
