Dewatering Bag Specifications
Question on dewatering bag specifications: Good morning. I need specifications on a 15' x 10' dewatering bag. What can you tell me about it?
Answer: Good Morning. Thank you for contacting Granite Environmental. I'd be happy to provide you with our dewatering bag specifications. In general, the specifications for these bags will be as follows:
- Material Options: 8 oz.. Nonwoven, 10 oz.. Nonwoven
- Capacity: 6 cubic yards/bag
- Size 15 ft. x 10 ft.
Each sediment bag can handle a 2”, 3” or 4” 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 similar to create a good seal. These sediment 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 bag to fail.
These bags have also been made a couple other standard sizes including the following:
- 6 ft. x 6 ft.
- 15 ft. x 15 ft.
- 15 ft. x 20 ft.
- 15 ft. x 25 ft.
All dewatering bag specifications include a nonwoven material, typically 8 oz. or 10 oz., although 6 oz. bags are also available. Read more about Dewatering and the differences between bags and tubes.
GEI Works offers two options for dewatering operations: Dewatering-Bag for sediment and Geotextile Sludge and Sediment Filter Tubes for dredging spoils, lagoon sludge and slurry which 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 Dewatering-Bag and Sediment filter bags are ideal for pumping sediment laden water into where it is filtered and the water passes through the non-woven geotextile, which retains the sediment and oil too!
