Silt Filter Bags
Specifications for a 6' x 6' Dewatering Bag
Question: I would like information about silt filter bags. Do you have specifications for a 6'x6' dewatering bag model available? Can you provide them?
Answer: Thank you for contacting GEI Works! Our Taurus Dewatering Bag, also known as silt filter bags, are ideal for filtering sediment laden water. The water passes through the non woven geotextile fabric while retaining the sediment inside the bag.
Specifications for a 6'x6' dewatering bag are:
- Material Options: 8 oz. Nonwoven, 10 oz. Nonwoven
- Discharge Hoses: Up to 4"
- Capacity: 1.44 cubic yards per bag
All sediment dewatering and filter bags are 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 material option is woven monofilament (polypro or PE), which is ideal for high flow, rugged, and high tensile applications.
In addition to this bag, we also offer several other standard sizes:
- 15 ft x 10 ft
- 15 ft x 15 ft
- 15 ft x 20 ft
- 15 ft x 25 ft
Dewatering filter bags may be placed directly on the ground, in porous surfaces, and in various other containers (even dump trucks!) to help filter, transport, and store materials.
