Accessories for Dewatering Bags

dewatering bagsAll sediment control bags can handle up to an 8" discharge hose. The hose can be placed along any edge by making a small incision into the fabric, inserting the hose, and then clamping the fabric to the hose via wire, ties, clamp, rope, or something similar to create a good seal. These dewatering filter bags are rugged but not indestructible. Care should always be taken to properly monitor performance to ensure that pump rates or concentrations of sediment are not excessive. Failure to do so may cause dewatering bags to fail.

Dewatering Options

dewatering bagsGEI Works offers two options for dewatering operations: Dewatering bags for silt and geotextile sludge and sediment filter tubes for dredging spoils, lagoon sludge, and slurry. These are an economical effective way to keep within NPDES phase II and Clean Water Act compliance and avoid shut downs and/or fines for not removing material like sediment and organics from pumped water and possibly exceeding TSS permit levels. These are ideal for aquaculture use, composting, or site remediation.

Our Taurus HD Dewatering Bags are ideal for pumping sediment-laden water into where it is filtered. The water passes through the non-woven geotextile, which retains the sediment and oil, too!
