DRAINTUBE provides technical and innovative solutions for mines rehabilitation, tailings drying or dams drainage. DRAINTUBE effectively drains liquids and gases even under extreme conditions.
For many years, AFITEX-Texel has developed and manufactured multi-linear drainage geocomposites to decrease pore pressures in the soils. DRAINTUBE technology is a solution that provides safety, long term stability as well as consequent environmental footprint reductions.
Multi-linear drainage geocomposite DRAINTUBE main applications :
- Gas and groundwater drainage under geomembrane in fresh/processed water ponds
- Rainfall water drainage on final covers of tailing/mining waste storage sites
- Pore pressure control in tailings dams
- Tailings dewatering
- Leachate collection in heap leach pads
- Rehabilitation of old mining sites
