Geotube

Geotubes are capsule shaped elements which are formed by putting together the geotextile rolls and have the strength to hold a relatively large amount of water-saturated material. The geotextile tubes have a porous structure and the solid part is retained when filled with a water-saturated material or slurry, and the water is filtered out of the pores of the geotextile forming the geotube. Geotubes have also been developed for erosion control and storage purposes.

Geotextile bag, tube and carrier, varying in size from 1 m3 to 3000 m3, are a wide variety of infills. These filled elements or tubes are used in the manufacture of stability pads, which are formed under water, in the arbitration of coastal structures against waves, in control of the thalweg erosion by berms, in the protection of the bridge edge legs against the erosion, in the storage of the material from the bottom sweep and in the storage of clean or contaminated materials.

Waterproofing
Screened material, domestic and industrial wastewater treatment sludge, animal waste, paper mill sludge, fly ash, mineral waste

Surface Drainage
Airports, highways, oil spills, agricultural operations

Structural Erosion Prevention
Berms, beaches, rivers, swamps, silt retainers

Storage
Fine-grained screened material, contaminated screened material, sealing of the contaminated material

As mentioned above, there are many uses of geotubes and the usage areas of geotubes are increased due to the increase in technical characteristics. Geotube has field applications to prevent structural erosion.

Dewatering with geotube is a three-step method.

In the first stage, high strength geotubes made of geotextile having the ability to hold larger grains of specific diameter are filled with waste sludge, contaminated floor or waste material obtained by screening. The structure of the geotextile in which the geotube is manufactured should be suitable for the grain structure of the material to be filled and keep the sediment to a great extent within the geotube.

In the dewatering stage, excess water is discharged from the geotube. The discharged water is generally of a quality that can be reused or returned to the natural environment without further improvement. As the amount of solid material retained in the geotube increases, the quality of discharged water is further increased.

In the final stage, during the consolidation phase, the waste water evaporates from the texture of the geotube and the density of the material in the interior increases and consolidates.
