Dewatering Bag Variety
Choosing the right dewatering filter bags for your location is often dependent on several different different factors including the type of materials you need to filter and where you will be using this product.
One of the most commonly used dewatering filter bags are the sediment-only models. Designed with a high strength filter fabric, these bags are equipped to filter out sediment, silt and other particles as they are pumped into the bag. Dewatering filter bags are commonly used for dredging and construction dewatering projects and include the following standard sizes:
|3' x 4'||8 oz. Nonwoven||0.2 cu. yd./bag|
|6' x 6'||8 oz. Nonwoven||0.67 cu. yd./bag|
|8' x 8'||8 oz. Nonwoven||1.19 cu. yd./bag|
|15' x 10'||8 oz. Nonwoven||5.56 cu. yd./bag|
|15' x 15'||8 oz. Nonwoven||8.3 cu. yd./bag|
For areas requiring the filtration of both sediment and oil, these dewatering filter bags are a good option. Designed with a filter fabric that can handle both oil and sediment, the bags are available in several standard sizes including the following:
|Size||Max Flow Rate||Sediment Capacity||Sediment Capacity||Oil Capacity|
|3' x 4'||500 gpm||0.3 cu/yds.||720 lbs.||1.2 gal.|
|6' x 6'||500 gpm||1.3 cu/yds.||4320 lbs.||3.7 gal.|
|8' x 8'||500 gpm||1.9 cu/yds.||4920 lbs.||4.3 gal.|
|10' x 15'||1500 gpm||5.6 cu/yds.||18,000 lbs.||15.1 gal.|
|15' x 15'||1500 gpm||8.3 cu/yds.||27,000 lbs.||22.6 gal.|
Reusable dewatering bags are a good choice for locations looking to contain and dewater smaller amounts of materials. Rather than being complete sealed, these bags will feature a locking rod that will seal one side of the bag shut. Once dewatering has finished, this portion can then be opened to allow for the bag to be cleaned and reused. Reusable dewatering bag sizes include the following:
|Size||Max Flow Rate||Sediment Capacity||Sediment Capacity|
|3' x 5'||500 gpm||0.3 cu/yds.||960 lbs.|
|3' x 7'||500 gpm||0.7 cu/yds.||2160 lbs.|
*Replacement bags and locking rods are available separately.
For large scale projects, we also have several Geotextile Dewatering Tubes that can be built in large capacities up to 250 feet in length. Geotubes and sludge tubes are meant to handle larger capacities than standard dewatering filter bags.
