    Geotextiles solutions for hydraulic constructions sector

    Water is irreplaceable for life and for a great many businesses. It is a guarantee of survival and a scarce resource. Today`s society demands increasingly large volumes of increasingly high-quality water. TenCate Geosyntehtics has had a constant hand in the creation of water management infrastructure. In the last 20 years it has built more than 30 dams of a wide range of types and has used for that purpose the most modern of construction systems. TenCate filtration systems offer optimized hydraulic properties with high compression strength. Sensitive hydraulic structures - dams, dykes, canals, reservoirs - require perfect water control. Whether used to protect banks, around a drainage structure or against clay sealing cores, TenCate filtration geosynthetics achieve this level of requirement.

    Monitoring of hydroelectric dam sumps

    The Situation

    Hydroelectric dams produce electric power by harnessing the force of the water flowing through the dam. There are numerous sources for oil spillage:

    • The hydroelectric turbines are lubricated by lubrication oils.
    • The very large water control valves are normally hydraulic powered and are lubricated with various greases and oils.
    • Vehicles including fork lifts, trucks, etc., can spill oils and fuels.

    Any accidental spillage of oil or grease or intentional wash down water containing minor amounts of oils, greases, and detergents must be collected and treated before discharge to the river. These fluids along with any water leaks are collected in sumps in the dam and are regularly pumped out. In many cases, the volume of water is substantial.

    PEHD membrane sealing systems for retrofitting in existing landfill site

    It is also possible to retrofit a monitoring system in existing surface sealing liners without impairing the synthetic liner sheet or the immediately adjacent functional layers. For this purpose, cable trenches must be dug in the recultivation layer above the drainage layer. The detection cables are then laid in these trenches.

  • Tunnels

    The geotextile performs two primary functions when used in the construction of tunnels:- 1. Protection of the linear from abrasion and puncture by protrusions from the base surface of the tunnel well. 2.Drainage of water seeping through the rock and sprayed concrete layer. The in-plane oermeability of the geotextile enables the water to flow to a subsurface drainage collection system. where it is directed awa from the tunne

  • Soil Stabilization

    Problem: Poor load-bearing soils pose a significant problem for transportation and construction needs. Unpaved areas, such as access roads, paths, parking lots, driveways, etc can be highly vulnerable to near-surface shear failure and rutting, especially in moist conditions or areas with higher expected loads. Typically, engineers bridge over weak soils with rigid structures such as thick, reinforced concrete for roads and highways. However, such techniques are prohibitively expensive and inordinately difficult to install. The poorer the quality of the sub-base and the heavier the expected loads, the greater the amount and better the quality of support required.

  • Water Monitoring and Flow Measurement Systems for Hydrology

    In recent years acoustic flow measurement and flow metering has established itself as the standard method for measurement in many hydrological stations but is also used as the basis for various applications, for example for flood protection and flood forecasting. Ultrasonic flow meters are also used in hydro-engineering constructions. With this almost contact free technology data can be recorded continuously and it provides 24/7 monitoring. Such flow monitoring is particularly important in waterways used for shipping, transportation, irrigation, drainage and for cooling water extraction of power plants. A further important use of transit-time open channel flow meters is the transportation of water used for the supply of drinking water. Here the focus lies on detecting the flow rate of water loss at an early stage as it is sometimes difficult to detect small leakages.

  • Geosynthetic Lining for Highway and Civil Applications

    GCL can be used in highway and civil applications such as at airport de-icing facilities used to remove ice build up on the surfaces of planes. During the application process, glycol-based de-icing fluids can leak into local stormwater runoff, potentially causing pollution. CETCO GCLs were found compatible with de-icing fluid (glycol diluted 50/50 with water). GCLs can also be used to line roadway drainage swales for containment and prevent excessive percolation, thereby minimizing potential for groundwater contamination. Another example of using GCL in civil and highway applications is using the liner to contain acid rock and prevent runoff from entering the local water supply.

  • Belt filter press

    Belt Filter Press is often applied in wastewater treatment plant sludge dewatering process and it is one of the most cost effective options regardless of the type of sludge feed into the systems. There are several combined processes added into one unit and it involves different applications such as chemical conditioning, gravity drainage and mechanical shearing and compression effect to remove water and dry up the sludge. Today, belt filter presses are widely used and it has become a standard for general wastewater sludge application and thus, learning how to optimize and use it to your advantage is very important.

  • Protection and Filtration for Industry and waste areas

    Geotextiles enhance both drainage and lining systems in environmental applications. In the large industry of waste containment, geotextiles are used to protect and cushion landfill liners and landfill capping systems, and they are used as critical components of geocomposites such as geocomposite drains and geosynthetic clay liners. Heavyweight, needle-punched nonwovens are use as cushion/protection for landfill and pond liners to keep adjacent stones in overlying or underlying drainage layers from puncturing the impermeable liner.
