Fabric Strength and Construction Provide Strength Needed For Extra Capacity, Faster Dewatering
TenCate develops and produces materials that function to increase performance, reduce cost, and deliver measurable results by working with our customers to provide advanced solutions. Now, products from TenCate Geotube can provide even more flexibility and value.
Thanks to developments in fabric and seaming technology, Geotube units can now be pumped to higher maximum heights safely and effectively. In fact, TenCate Geotube products can be pumped to heights greater than any other dewatering container on the market
TenCate Geotube's GT 500 dewatering fabric is a proprietary product that combines the advantages of superior strength and maximum filtration. GT500 is composed of high-tenacity polypropylene yarns, which are woven into a stable network so the yarns retain their relative position. GT500 is inert to biological degradation and resistant to naturally encountered chemicals, alkalis, and acids.
TenCate Geotube's patented seaming techniques are another reason for the strength of the completed units. With new technology that allows for both circumferential and linear seams, the fabric is bonded together with seams that rival the actual material in strength.
Geotube units meet a variety of ASTM standards for fabric strength, seam strength, permeability, and puncture resistance. Details on Geotube dewatering technology fabrics can be found in the product specification sheets located atwww.geotube.com. They are also available from any TenCate Geotube representative.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Geotube units should never be pumped to heights greater than the figure stenciled on the actual unit To keep pumping heights at maximum efficiency, many organizations stretch a simple colored ribbon over the unit at the maximum pumping height The operator can easily see when the unit is reaching its maximum capacity- They can also see when it is possible to increase pumping volume to reach the maximum height.
