Geotube® Application Testing Services
MPS provides the following Geotube® application testing options:
Send A Sample
MPS offers free lab testing for Geotube® applications review at our facility. When MPS receives a 5-gallon sample of the institu product for testing, you will receive a reply within two weeks. We will provide you with discussion of application at your project site, along with an estimated cost of Geotube® containers and support equipment rental cost offered by MPS.
Applications may require testing on-site due to volume or containments within the waste that prevent shipping to our lab. A nominal charge will apply. MPS offers two options to best meet your project goals:
Tailgate Skid Unit
It's a unique mobile filtration skid design attached to our service trucks. That allows testing of various Geotube® filter fabric options with a pre-screened chemical program to attain optimum filtration rates, solids capture and filtrate quality. Skids are equipped with a 45-gallon, variable-speed mix tank, hand-operated 2" diaphragm pump, 1-cubic-foot capacity MiniTube™ and clear-filtrate collection container. Test results will provide Geotube® container sizing for the application tested.
Lab Trailer Unit
Our mobile lab trailer provides additional analytical methods for evaluating waste stream characteristics and application/dewatering technologies. Equipment is capable of simulations for clarifiers, screens, belt filter press, recess chamber and Geotube® applications. Engineering firms and/or end users utilize these tests to establish methods for design/build or remediation using these technologies.
