Dewatering Bag Project Canada
Question about a dewatering bag project we have in Canada. I work for a town in Quebec (Canada) and this summer we want to go with dewatering bags for all the septic tank sludge of the town, plus 3 others small towns for a total of 5000 septic tanks. My question is do you have dewatering bags that can work for this type of dewatering project? Do you have a representative that works here in Canada?
Answer: Thank you for contacting GEI Works with your inquiry! The Dewatering Bag has been successfully used in sludge applications across the world, including use in Canada. While we do not currently have a representative that works in Canada, we do frequently work with customers in this location and ship regularly to customers in Canada.
Choosing a Dewatering Bag for a dewatering bag project:
For dewatering projects, we offer two types of products:
- Dewatering Bag (shown above): This bag is designed for small projects such as temporary sludge projects, small dewatering on construction sites, and other dewatering jobs.
- Dewatering Tube The dewatering filter tube is constructed for larger dewatering projects. These tubes are significantly larger in size and have been used on locations that require fast pumping rates, high rate of sludge retention, and will be pumping a significant amount of water.
Depending on the size of your dewatering bag project, either of these products could work in your location. As mentioned above, dewatering bags are typically used in small projects, while the dewatering tube is used for dewatering of larger areas such as waste water treatment plants, lagoons, and sludge.
For septic tank dewatering in your Canadian location, choosing the right size bag or tube will depend on the following:
- Amount of Sludge Needing to be Dewatered
- Rate of Pumping
- Available Space (small bags may be placed in dump trucks and other containers for proper disposal after sludge dewatering process. Read more about dewatering bags to handle septage.
Polymers may also be used, if desired, to increase filtering rates in your location. Please contact a polymer specialist for more information.
