Containment

Introduction

Manufactured synthetic lining products have allowed for efficient design and construction of containment structures such as ponds, lagoons, landfills, tanks and secondary spill containment facilities, including vapor management systems. Because of the wide variety of project conditions and materials being contained and with so many liner types to choose from, the design and selection of the appropriate lining materials can be a complex task.

With nearly three decades of experience in geomembrane containment technology, Nilex offers geomembrane liner installation, design assistance, fabrication and construction services for containment applications. The Nilex containment technology process involves compatibility testing and the consideration of facility design and climatic factors.

Containment Applications

Primary Containment

Primary containment applications, such as landfills or tailings ponds, require geomembranes to prevent the leaching of materials into the surrounding soil and groundwater. Nilex geomembrane technology offers a wide range of materials for the containment of a variety of liquids, solids and waste...

Caps & Covers

Geomembrane covers are generally used to protect materials from water infiltration and to prevent loss of material from erosion by wind or water. Additionally, covers can provide odor control. Short-term cover applications include soil remediation projects, temporary stock pile covers and...

Secondary Containment

The storage of industrial liquids in tanks, drums or other containers usually requires the construction of a secondary containment facility that provides protection against potential leaks or breaches. Nilex offers several options for long-term or temporary secondary spill containment materials...

Vapor Management Systems

Nilex’s vapor management systems (soil gas barrier systems) use geomembranes to inhibit the seepage of gases, such as radon and methane from one area to another. These systems can be installed under or around concrete foundations and floors to prevent the build-up of dangerous gases in...

Testimonials

I want to thank you for getting things organized as quickly as you did for us and for the follow up calls and site visits that allowed us to get this work done and meet our schedule dates for the road work. As well, your product knowledge and ability to provide the technical support when dealing with the consultants was a major help in getting the system approved and installed correctly.

Bob T, Project Manager, MGP Construction Ltd.

Not only was there a substantial cost savings realized by the client, there was also a benefit to the road structure as well. The original design road structure number was 3.780 and a calculated traffic (ESALs) of 2,147,000. The revised road structure number using the TX5 is 4.260 and a calculated traffic (ESALs) of 4,593,000.
