PacTec’s dewatering filters automatically separate solid and liquid during a sludge dewatering process. Also known as sediment filters, they are placed in dewatering containers or boxes to streamline and economize the filtering process. Wastewater treatment plants, power plants, drinking water facilities, industrial sludge pits, cooling towers, agricultural operations, construction projects, environmental remediation projects, and mining and marine dredging operations can benefit from using the specially designed filters in the dewatering system when waste needs transporting for disposal to another location. The filters produce compacted, dry waste that has less weight and volume, minimizing waste disposal costs.Get a Quote

PacTec offers various dewatering filter liners to fit most common 20-yard and 30-yard dewatering boxes. We also offer W-shaped dewatering filters to fit boxes of that unique design.
PacTec utilizes many fabrics to effectively capture solids during the dewatering process, regardless of your water content. We offer micron ratings from 50-micron to 260-micron to meet your waste stream needs. If you are unsure which option is best, contact a member of our team and we will gladly assist you.
PacTec offers many dewatering filter sizes, meeting the needs of most dewatering boxes. However, if your box dimensions are uncommon, give us a call to inquire about exact sizing and fit, or we can custom manufacture liners for you.
Yes, PacTec’s dewatering liners are very easy to install, and can be done quickly, by one person and from the outside of the box. To see just how easy it is done, we’ve created this installation video.
PacTec utilizes various materials to fabricate dewatering filters, but the most common are from a non-woven polymeric material. For a larger micron rating, we use mesh screens and woven materials with larger openings. If you need samples to test your waste stream, you can request these by contacting a member of our team.
Most customers use dewatering filters one time only, as they tend to blind off (solids become lodged in all openings) as they fill, rendering their dewatering capabilities null once complete. Knowing this, PacTec makes them an affordable component of your dewatering processes.
PacTec’s dewatering filters are the ideal solution for dewatering many waste streams, including industrial sludge pits, cooling tower sludge, paint sludge, sump cleaning and more. They are also heavily used in construction dewatering and industrial and refining processes.
Dewatering filters are often a much more cost-effective method of dewatering when compared to filter or belt press and eliminates the need for additional solids containment.
