Choose the size you need for your project. The bags can be stacked to save space.

Reduce the cost of your sludge dewatering without compromising efficiency.

Stacked dewatering bags

ZebraTube® dewatering bags use woven polymer fabrics as semi-permeable membranes to trap the solids inside. The sludge is pumped in and the geotextile acts as a filter, allowing water to pass through but retaining the solid matter.

When the tube has filled and completely drained, the solid material is dry enough to remove or re-use. The filtrate can also be collected and recycled.

ZebraTube® geotextile bags provide a fast, simple and cost-effective alternative to mechanical sludge dewatering equipment like filter presses, belt filters or centrifuges.

  • Bags are stackable, allowing for efficient use of space

  • Minimal operational costs & low labour requirements

Call us today to find out how we can assist with your project.

ZebraTube® dewatering bags are manufactured from a uniquely developed woven geotextile to achieve top dewatering efficiencies.

We supply for all project sizes, large or small, across a range of industries - including mining, dredging, construction, manufacturing and food services.

ZebraTube® small-scale square bags are ideal for dewatering smaller sludge volumes on a batch or continuous basis.

The open-top configuration ensures you can easily access and monitor the dewatered material. Forklift handles are fitted to the bag for swift handling and disposal.

Our bags can dewater nearly any type of slurry they are filled with, so why not select one of our small-scale bags to test on your operation?

 1   Sludge enters the bag via pumping or gravity drainage.

 2   In some cases, a flocculating agent is added to agglomerate particles and increase dewatering efficiency.

 3   Solids settle in the bag and a filter cake forms on the geotextile surface, enhancing filtration through the material. Filtrate can be collected and re-used.

 4   Dry solids within the dewatering bags are removed.

ZebraTube® tubular bags are suitable for large dewatering projects.

Tube sizes range from 5m circumference by 5m length, to 35m circumference by 90m length. We can also custom-design to suit the size of your specific operation.

The stackability of tubes enables efficient use of space, while the quality of the geotextile fabric allows for swift dewatering of large sludge volumes, with minimal labour requirements.

Our geofabric tubes can dewater all types of slurry.

 3   Solids settle in the bag and a filter cake forms on the geotextile surface, enhancing filtration through the material. Filtrate can be collected and re-used.

 4   Dry solids consolidate within the dewatering tubes as the filtrate drains through the geotextile. The contained material can then be removed for disposal or re-use.
