Filling and Ports

TenCate offers two filling ports:  the GP-4 and the GP-8.  These patent pending fill ports are designed for connecting lines up to 6" to a TenCate Geotube® container.

TenCate Geotube® GP-4 Port Connection Details --  This is an innovative connection to the TenCate Geotube® MT and MDS containers.  Designed to improve and simplify the connection, the TenCate Geotube® GP-4 connection is comprised of 1" thick inside and outside flange rings that sandwich the TenCate Geotube® GT 500 textile between 1/8" thick rubber gaskets and is secured with 5/8" bolts.  Attaching your feed line to the TenCate Geotube® GP-4 connection is fast and easy with off-the-shelf PVC plumbing fittings.

This GP-4 port connection can be assembled in two options:

  • Option 1:   Basic connection
  • Option 2:   Connection with sampling

TenCate Geotube® GP-8 Port System and Connection Details  --  The patent pending TenCate Geotube® GP-8 filling port system is designed to improve the performance of TenCate Geotube® dewatering technology.  It simplifies the connection and filling process, increases operating safety, and allows higher pumping heights and greater dewatering volume.

The factory-installed TenCate Geotube® GP-8 filling port system uses PVC flange rings, neoprene gaskets, and a flexible sleeve to produce a stong, efficient filling system that prevents leakage and than can be sealed once the job is complete.
