RDT Test

The TenCate Geotube® Rapid Dewatering Test (RDT) demonstrates the dewatering efficiency of treated or untreated material.  This is a fast and easy test to determine how well a sludge sample dewaters through our specially engineered dewatering textile.  The RDT is designed to:

  • Evaluate the efficiency of the candidate polymers.
  • Measure the volume of effluent filtered from the sludge.
  • Record the time for filtration.
  • Analyze the quality of effluent water.
