Dewatering Filter Bags

DX2 Geosyntex’s Dewatering Bag is the perfect solution to the myriad of problems caused by sediment in pumped water. Issues with erosion around construction sites and roadways, for example, can cause sediment to enter ponds, streams, storm drains and other water systems. This causes potential damage to both drainage systems and the surrounding ecosystems.


What Is Sediment, And Why Can It Can Cause Problems

Sediment particles from land surrounding bodies of water can cause damage to drainage systems, including blockage of storm drains. Sediment particles can be formed from silt, sand, and even decaying animal and plant matter in the surrounding area. Sediment, in and of itself, is a natural part of the erosion and decomposition process. However, what may be good on land isn’t always desirable in the water. These particles may add nutrients and new life to soil, but this process actually creates problems for aquatic life and the surrounding area. These problems include pollution to drinking water, disruption to a fragile ecosystem, and damage to the drainage system itself. These are issues common at construction sites, ponds, and dredging locations.

How DX2 Geosyntex’s Dewatering Bag Can Help

The collaborative expertise of many experts, including experienced engineers and various building planners, has resulted in the creation and design of the DX2 Dewatering Bag. The DX2 Dewatering Filter Bag is made from a very reliable, nonwoven geotextile fabric, and it helps by collecting these particles from pumped water and removing them.

The DX2 Geosyntex’s Dewatering Filter Bag Specifications

Each DX2 Geosyntex’s Dewatering Filter bag is made to meet AASHTO M288 Class 1 and accommodates a discharge hose of four to six inches. The bag is made of eight ounces of geotextile fabric, and its custom design, along with the strength of material, allows it to meet the strict company standards of DX2 Geosyntex, Inc for using only the most reliable materials for its products.

Straps secure the four to six-inch discharge hose, ensuring no unfiltered pumped water gets through. The dewatering process begins by inserting the discharge hose into the neck, and securing the d-ring tie straps. The water flow and filtration efficiency can be maximized by placing the bag on an aggregate bed. The rate of water per minute passing through the bag will vary depending on the size of the product and the type and amount of sediment being filtered. However, in most situations a 15×15 DX2 Geosyntex Dewatering Bag will pass a maximum of 500 gallons of water per minute. When the DX2 Geosyntex Dewatering filter bags flow and removal rate decreases, the dewatering bag is full.

DX2 Geosyntex, Inc has been committed to providing a wide range of superior products to its clients for almost thirty years. Their clients include public officials, civil engineers, and others concerned with the protection of roadways, waterways and the ecosystems surrounding them. DX2 Geosyntex, Inc is proud to specialize in providing erosion control products made from only the toughest of materials.
