Geoport is new mechanical injection for tube containers

TenCate Geosynthetics Americas announced in an Aug. 28 press release that it has developed a rigid, mechanical injection system—Geoport—that virtually eliminates unwanted stress at geotextile-tube insertion ports.

The release noted that “within the geotextile tube industry, producing a strong and secure textile injection port system has always proved challenging. Both the sewn attachment and the final closing method of these ports have never been as durable as the textile tube itself.”

According to the press release, TenCate Geotube® GP filling system was issued U.S. Patent Number 8088117 and [also] in multiple other countries around the globe.

“Our patented Geoport filling system provides multiple advantages over traditional textile
injection ports, including higher pumping heights, which increase fill capacity, improved
operating factors of safety, and a more secure filling connection,” said Christopher
Timpson, TenCate product development/water and environment.
