Sand filter back wash

TenCate Geotube® MDS mobile dewatering systems

To day the transportation of sludge coming from sand filter back wash is a costly repetitive business. If dewatering could be done on site the cost would drop considerably. Stationary conventional presses are to cost ineffective for this type of job. Mobile dewatering units are commonly used but since they have to carry a voluminous press as well there is only limited space left for sludge. This increases the number of transport movements and has a negative impact on cost.

Simple and cost effective

TenCate Geotube® MDS mobile dewatering systems offer a simple and adequate solution to this problem. Our standard product line comprises a 10ft and a 20ft container bag. Since every TenCate Geotube® system is made to measure bag allows you to use every inch of the transportation capacity of your container.
TenCate Geotube® MDS system uses high strength filtration fabrics with very unique retention properties to provide solutions to mining, municipal water and waste water, industrial, agricultural, and various other applications where space is at a premium. Installed within minutes, the TenCate Geotube® MDS container will lose over 70% of the water coming in straight away. Our customers love the simplicity of the installation, the high reliability and the absence of down time. Since the container is also controlling odour, and serving as a temporary on-site dewatering system, TenCate Geotube® MDS systems make sludge logistics much more convenient.
