Dewatering Tubes or Geotubes, are a reliable and cost-effective solution to manage water on your construction site, industrial project, or environmental remediation site for volumes that are measured in cubic feet of sediment. GEI Works’ high-quality dewatering tubes are designed to handle large volumes of water. They are the ultimate tool for effective sediment and water separation, ensuring clean and clear results.
Dewatering Tubes are used extensively in construction and protection of water infrastructure systems. Applications include on-land and off-shore marine applications. These close-ended tubes contain filling ports evenly spaced at intervals along the length to allow for even hydraulic filling of a slurry of sand and water. Their long exteriors and high permittivity allow them to effectively remove waste solids and other pollution from water while leaving sand and solids inside the tube. After drying, the sediment creates a solid horizontal structure of compacted sand and / or dried mud.
Dewatering Tubes are perfect for large dewatering filtration or sludge removal projects. Dewatering tubes have significantly larger dimensions and superior strength woven geotextile fabric or composite materials, as compared to the smaller footprint and non-woven material of dewatering bags. Once on site, Geotextile Dewatering Tubes are hydraulically filled with saturated sediment, sand or bio-organic solids and waste materials. When fully dewatered,
the sediment is reduced in both weight and volume, allowing for more cost-effective material handling.
Their components meet or exceed minimum DOT Erosion and State NPDES Sediment Control requirements as outlined in 40 CFR 122.26. GEI’s Dewatering Tubes help keep runoff clean and keep your site in compliance with local and federal stormwater regulations.
