Dewatering Filtration Products

Dewatering Filter Bags and Socks for Sediment Filtration

Dewatering filtration products like dewatering filter bags and dewatering filter socks are an easy solution for any site looking to filter discharge, runoff, or wastewater streams. Designed in both small and large filtration models, these dewatering filtration products have been used on construction sites, waste water treatment plants, and job sites to control the amount of sediment or pollution leaving the site. Dewatering bags and socks have been used worldwide to help sites stay in compliance with local and federal stormwater regulations.

Dewatering Filtration Product Options

dewatering sediment bagsDewatering Filter Bag: Dewatering and sediment filter bags are the most common option for removing unwanted materials from discharge or stormwater runoff. Bags are smaller in size, making them ideal for dumpsters, drop boxes, or other small dewatering areas.

dewatering filter sockDewatering Filter Sock: The dewatering filter sock is designed as a quick and easy alternative to large dewatering bags or filters. Simply place the sock at the end of a discharge hose or pipe and allow the sock to filter materials. Sizes include 8", 12", and 16" diameters.

Dewatering Filter Bags Differences

sediment filter bagThe main difference between dewatering filter bags and dewatering filter socks is their size and construction. Dewatering socks are a smaller filtration option and are typically designed for areas with limited space or small dewatering projects. By contrast, dewatering filter bags are significantly larger in size and are typically used for wastewater projects such as lagoon dewatering or sludge removal.

While all dewatering filtration products are constructed from a filter fabric, larger bags will typically require a higher strength material to accommodate larger sediment amounts. For this reason, smaller dewatering bags will typically use a nonwoven geotextile, while larger dewatering bags will use a woven monofilament.

  • Dewatering Filter Bags: 8 oz. or 10 oz. Nonwoven Fabric
  • Dewatering Filter Tubes: Woven Monofilament Fabric

Both dewatering options have helped companies avoid shut downs or fines. Products can help remove sediment/organics from pumped water and reduce total suspended solids (TSS) levels from a runoff flow.

Sediment Control BMPs

Effective stormwater management often involves a combination of dewatering filtration products, best management practices (BMPs) and devices to accommodate various drains, projects or work. For this reason, GEI Works offers several additional Stormwater Best Management Practices Products (BMPs) including Drain Guards, inlet logs, gravel bags, silt fencing and filter socks for Erosion Sediment Control Products.
