BENTONITE CHIPS

DESCRIPTION

Medium Bentonite Chips are made of high swelling natural Wyoming sodium bentonite. These chips form a flexible, permanent, non-toxic seal where water flows and hydrostatic pressures are involved.

Chip sizes are available in 6 - 10 mm (1/4 to 3/8 in.) and are packed in 22.7 kg (50 lb.) bags, 48 per pallet. All pallets are plastic-wrapped.

APPLICATIONS

Seal all types of piezometers.


Seal surface casing for water wells and well pits.


Provide an intermediate seal preventing inter-aquifer transfer.


Seal at the upper most aquifer and prevent entrance of surface water into aquifer.


Seal abandoned wells maintaining aquifer yield and artesian head.

QUICK SPECS

Increased hardness an density provides better settling characteristics. Can be placed in a dry or wet borehole with the same ease as pea gravel.


Extremely slow swelling rate allows the proper placement of the bentonite seal without bridging.


Will swell up to 15 times its dry volume when hydrated by fresh water. (Please note that performance can be affected by water quality).


Chemically stable. Results from TCLP Priority Pollutants analysis are below RCRA limits for hazardous constituents.


Will provide an “in place” expansive seal.


Will not shrink or crack with time.


Cost effective.

BENEFITS

Increased Productivity


Immediate Delivery


High Accuracy


High Reliability
