Cone Test

The TenCate Geotube® Cone Test offers a handheld evaluation and is perfect for use with a small sample.  It can be conducted in the field, and is useful for fine-tuning polymer dosage during operations.

The TenCate Geotube® Cone Test is a fast and easy test to determine how well a sludge sample dewaters in our specially engineered dewatering textile.  This test is designed to evaluate the efficiency of the candidate polymers and to help predict the percent of moisture remaining in the sludge after dewatering in the cone.  The user will measure the time it takes for free water to be released from the sludge, how well the dewatered sludge releases from the TenCate Geotube® textile, the volume of effluent released from the sludge, and the quality of the effluent.
