Maccaferri solutions make dewatering easier and more cost-effective
The dewatering process is the removal of water from solid material or soil by filtration, centrifugation or other solid-liquid separation processes, through specific designed dewatering pumps.
We provide an excellent solution in our geotextile tubes, MacTubes®, which are used for dewatering mine tailings, sludge ponds or slurries. They are specifically designed to retain solid particles within the tube, whilst the filtrate fluids are released through the fabric.
The drained solid residue can be left to dry before disposal in a controlled and cost-effective manner.
