Within the geotextile tube industry, producing a strong and secure textile injection port system has always proved challenging. Neither the sewn attachment nor the final closing method of the ports has ever been as durable as the textile tube itself. TenCate Geosynthetics Americas has developed a rigid, mechanical injection port system (known as Geoport) which virtually eliminates unwanted stress at this location. TenCate Geotube® GP filling system was issued U.S. Patent Number 8088117 and in multiple other countries around the globe.
“Our patented Geoport filling system provides multiple advantages over traditional textile injection ports, including: higher pumping heights to increase fill capacity, improved operating factors of safety, and a more secure filling connection,” said Christopher Timpson, Product Development, Water and Environment.
