ZebraTube Dewatering Bags

ZebraTube® dewatering bags are manufactured from a uniquely developed woven geotextile. A dedicated production team takes the utmost care in manufacturing our market-leading dewatering and sediment separating bags. These dewatering bags are ideal for large, medium and smaller dewatering and sludge removal projects.

Spilo Backfill Bags

Spilo Technical Textiles produces specific geotextiles utilized in the world of deep-level mining. The backfill concept plays a pivotal role in allowing mining to continue safely and efficiently at world-record depths. Mine tailings (extracted earlier from the mine for their mineral content) are pumped back underground into our long woven fabric geosynthetic, stitched into tubes specifically designed for the solids and fines contained in that mine’s tailings. The main function of the tubular backfill bag is to replace traditional wood packs in propping up the hanging wall (roof) thereby preventing catastrophic fall of rock during any subsequent
mining or seismic activities.
