Geomembrane Technologies (GTI) designs, engineers, fabricates, installs and maintains complete cover systems for water and wastewater facilities at municipal, commercial and industrial sites around the world. Treatment tanks and lagoons, of virtually any size or shape, can be securely covered to control and contain odors, reduce heat loss, collect biogas, capture VOCs, eliminate sunlight penetration to control algae, and prevent splashing.
Custom cover systems for water and wastewater facilities
Customized options, such as retractability, modular construction, hatches and off-gas piping connections, are also available. GTI custom cover systems are ideal for clarifiers, chlorine contact basins, sedimentation tanks, aeration basins and potable water tanks.
GTI features several custom and patented cover designs:
- Floating covers
- Retractable arch-supported covers
- Removable modular covers
Each design is customized specifically to meet each project’s functional requirements.
Floating covers for industrial wastewater facilities
Typical applications for industrial wastewater include odor and off gas control, heat loss control for process stability, and biogas collection for energy recovery (GHG reductions). Floating cover designs are used when all or most of these applications are needed. GTI covers can be used on virtually any size and shape of tank, reservoir or lagoon.
Retractable arch-supported covers and removable modular covers
If odor, algae or heat loss is the major concern then retractable arch-supported covers or removable modular covers can also be recommended for industrial wastewater facilities.
Retractable arch-supported cover system for municipal water and wastewater facilities
Typical applications for municipal water and wastewater facilities include odor control, VOC capture, elimination of sunlight penetration, prevention of splashing, evaporation reduction, and reduction in the use of chemicals.
GTI’s retractable arch-supported cover system allows tanks to be securely covered while providing easy access to the tank’s internal components. These retractable arch-supported covers are made of high-performance, reinforced, UV-protected membranes, supported on a low-profile aluminum arch frame so they can be quickly detached and re-attached, providing easy access for plant operators.
Retractable arch-supported covers provide a significant contribution to workplace safety and wildlife control. They virtually eliminate contamination and help lower operational costs, and they are ideal for clarifiers, chlorine contact basins, sedimentation tanks, aeration basins, etc.
