Dewatering Tubes



TUBE 50-50 is a typical sediment dewatering geotextile tube for sludge dewatering,  It is a high efficiency filtration product designed to effectively deposite silt, sludge, sediment and other unwanted materials from your discharge slurry. This type of tubes are widly used in circle less than 10 meters. The materials can been dewatered as listed below:
  • Municipal water and wastewater sludge
  • Food processing
  • Mining waste
  • Agricultural animal waste
  • Industrial waste
  • Construction waste
  • Contaminated sediments

Municipal Waste

The dewatering of municipal waste sludge was a early and mature application for geotextile dewatering bags. Most municipal sewage treatment plants store the generated sludge in ponds. 

Geotextile sludge dewatering tubes are used extensively for dewatering sludge from these containment ponds. The effluent water is normally back to the ponds, and solids disposed of elsewhere.

For the limited space available, many customers use small size geobag, which can put into ‘rectangle steel box’ and can be easy moved by truck. It is also called MDS dewatering system.

Mining Waste

The mining of minerals will produce various types of waste. Such as tailings, mineral fines and processing sludge.

Large mining activities produce big amounts of tailings, which are stored in open tailings dams in isolated locations. However, small mines produce small tailings, which are close to population or environmentally sensitive areas.

The management of these tailings or their remediation are necessary, because in many cases the tailings have to be dewatered first before they can be rendered stable and inert.

Contaminated Sediments

The contaminated sediments are always come from industrial effluent waste that settle into rivers, lakes, ponds and streams within timeby. They are such as: PCBs, PCPs, PAHs, lead, copper, zinc, arsenic and etc. These contaminants are harmful to humans, animals and aquatic lifes. Environmental dredging is the most common method of contaminated sediment remediation. The sediment is dredged and pumped into tube, transported after weeks or months consolidation.

Agricultural Animal Waste

Chicken, Cattle and Pig farms produce large amount of waste, which is commonly stored in retention ponds. Over time there ponds are filled with sludge, and they have to be cleaned out periodically use geosynthetic tubes. Animal waste is more fine than sewage waste, it normally has to be treated with coagulate and flocculate to ensure colloids and nutrients are contained within the geotextile bags for dredging during dewatering tubes.

Industrial Waste

Many industrial processes produce waste which is stored in waste ponds on the industrial site. Over time these ponds fill with waste sludge, and have to be cleaned to continue function.

A common method of these waste reclamation is to dewater the waste sludge from ponds and dispose of it in landfill or use it for other applications.

Food Processing

Food processing produces large quantities of slurry waste, which comes from manufacturing process such as Potato Processing(washing and skin waste), Cheese Processing, Wine Processing and etc.


Dewatering tubes Slurry waste stored in sedimentation pond and need to be dewatered periodically.

Client Testimony

Boatup Geosynthetics is not only a reliable supplier, but also an excellent business partner. We are so lucky find the right one in geosynthetics industry.
