Taurus Dewatering Bag 15' x 15'
Dewatering Bag Specifications
Question: I'm looking to purchase a 15' x 15' dewatering bag, but would like to know the specifications before I make a decision.
Answer: Thank you for contacting GEI Works with your inquiry. I would be happy to go over our dewatering bag details and specifications.
Dewatering Bag Materials: Our sediment Dewatering Bag is fabricated using heavy duty needle punched filter fabric (non-woven geotextile) which provides high permittivity (water flow) and a fine pore structure that allows water to flow through freely, while preventing fine soils from piping through. Another option is woven monofilament (polypro or PE), which is ideal for high flow, rugged, and high tensile applications.
Dewatering Bag 15' x 15' Fabric Options: You can choose between an 8 oz or 10 oz non woven fabric, from our standard stock, but we can also manufacture the bag to custom specifications if needed. 6 oz fabric may also be available.
Dewatering Bag Sizing: Dewatering bags should be sized based on the volume of water being pumped (pump flow rate), quantity and type of sediment and the permittivity of the given bag size. Consideration should also be given to location. (Steep sloped surfaces are typically not recommended as the bag may roll). Placement may be in a 20’ drop box, dump truck or similar for containment to facilitate transportation.
Discharge Hose Capabilities: 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.)
