TenCate Geotube® technology was used once again in the removal and dewatering sludge from wastewater treatment lagoon. The Geotube® solution has proven to be extremely effective in this type of work. Allow a significant reduction in sludge volume (over 90%) to be transported to final destination.
TenCate Geotube® dewatering technology enables effective dewatering of solid material with high moisture content. The high solid matter contents (solids concentration) achieved allows an easy sludge handling and ensure significant savings in transport and disposal.
Process and application simplicity is one of the great advantages of TenCate Geotube® dewatering technology. A Geotube® unit was deployed at a WWTP, allowing to quickly response to the high solids loading in the treatment system.
When the mechanical dewatering system failed, the Geotube® solution provided a quick and effective response to the dewatering problem at the WWTP. This made possible to continue dewatering process and keep the WWTP running smoothly.
TenCate Geotube® dewatering technology is being used to treat all the effluent produced from the stone production process. From the start of the project it was planned to change the configuration of the quarry. The Geotube® solution allowed this redefinition of spaces to be easily carried out due to its ease handling and adaptability.
Geotube dewatering technology was applied at WWTP to confine, dewater, and store solids removed from reservoir during a maintenance job. The Geotube® solution allows for rapid application and ensures a significant reduction in the volume of sludge to be disposed of.
The Geotube® MDS (Mobile Dewatering System) solution placed in a standard metal containers was used effectively for sludge dewatering at an industrial wastewater treatment plant. It restored the optimum levels of matter in the system while promoting a significant reduction in the volume of sludge to be disposed of.
TenCate Geotube® dewatering technology allows the continue of sludge dewatering in a WWTP during periods of maintenance and/or breakdown of traditional mechanical equipment and also solves problems of sludge volumes above the installed treatment capacity.
Solid accumulation in biological reactors creates various problems in wastewater treatment systems. The TenCate Geotube® solution with TenCate Nicolon® low density impermeable geomembrane enables rapid and effective action to remove and dewater accumulated solids.
TenCate Geotube® technology makes better use of existing drying beds at many wastewater treatment plants. The Geotube® unit, applied over the drying bed filter , provides a second filter layer and allows triple the height of sludge stored in each drying bed. This increases sludge consolidation time and allows significant economic savings in sludge transportation to final destination.
