National Public Works Week - An Industry Essential To Our Communities

By troy_lott National Public Works Week With 0 Comments

National Public Works Week is May 20-26. BAG Corp values our public works professionals and the role they play in keeping our communities safe and functioning smoothly. Public works professionals include those who manage water, sewer, public transportation, and refuse-removal systems as well as those responsible for maintaining public buildings and grounds. They are the folks who maintain and improve the systems and services vital to our community’s health, safety and comfort.

Public facilities and services could not be provided without the dedicated efforts of public works professionals, who are engineers, managers and employees from state and local governments and the private sector, who are responsible for rebuilding, improving and protecting our nation’s transportation, water supply, water treatment and solid-waste systems, public buildings, and other structures and facilities essential for our citizens.

BAG Corp developed many of our products, including the DeWatering Super Sack® container, with the public works professional in mind and has humbly served this industry for many years. Municipalities have found our dewatering bag useful in the battle to control problematic Struvite at wastewater treatment plants. Other common uses include dewatering sludge, clarifying water or other liquids, bio treatment projects, dewatering silt, product washing, product collecting, cake filtration, and more.


How it works:

A dewatering bag facilitates filtration of a fluid mixture allowing solid materials to be retained as the water or liquid drains. With BAG Corp’s DeWatering Super Sack®, the smallest particles retained during filtration is 460 microns. A special liner can be installed in the dewatering bag to help filter even smaller particles, as needed. Our bags are UV treated for extended use outdoors and provide a remarkable 90% tensile strength retention after 1,000 hours of exposure. Download a .pdf of our product spec sheet below.

BAG Corp’s DeWatering Super Sack® is engineered with special porous polypropylene fabric with warp and weft tensile strengths greater than those of conventional 8 oz. polypropylene. The heavy-duty construction provides an impressive 3,000 lb capacity with a safety factor of 5:1. Super strong, heavy-duty lift loop construction is available depending on your specific weight requirements. It comes with a variety of filling and discharging selections for efficient and safe handling of this specialized product.

The DeWatering Super Sack® container, and a diverse inventory of other bulk bags are available through our online store for immediate shipment from our warehouse.
