Advantages of the G3<sup>®</sup> system

Less equipment needed
When compared to Bentonite system, the G3® system can operate practically without any special equipment dedicated to slurry operations.

Reduced on site stock (compared with Bentonite)
In most cases, the proportion may be 50 times less.

Reduced personnel
It is not necessary to dedicate a person to the slurry plant fulltime, allowing the worker to be available to perform other tasks.

The G3® system is environmentally safe and friendly.
The G3® system was designed having the environment as a major concern; after treated, the slurry can be disposed of to sewer systems, water streams etc.

Clean job sites

Clean job sites
Spoils from the excavations are dry. The slurry is confined to where is needed.

Mixing and hydration in less than 30 minutes

Mixing and hydration in less than 30 minutes
The average mixing time ranges from 15 to 30 minutes.

Use with salt-water

Use with salt-water
The G3® system was designed for interaction with salt water, by either mixing or intrusion in the excavation due to tidal effect.


Faster operation methods
The all process was conceived thinking of production and how important it is to our clients. From the mixing to the recycling and re usage of the slurry.

Lower concrete overbreaks
Due to its ability to interact and bind with the soil, the excavation's geometry is more accurate, therefore the concrete overbreaks are lower.

imgNo concrete contamination

No concrete contamination
The cleaning of the excavations is essential. The G3® system was designed to be able to effectively clean the bottom of any type of excavation.

Lower sand content percentages
The G3® system product line has the most effective method for cleaning sediments and fines that accumulate at the bottom of excavations.

Concrete surfaces with lower contamination than Bentoniteimg

Concrete surfaces with lower contamination than Bentonite
In a cleaner excavation, the contamination level will always be lower.

Increased skin friction
The bond between concrete and the soil is complete since the polymer membrane is eliminated by direct contact with the concrete.

Wider problem solving technical capability
The different methods developed by GEO's technical team, aim to and allow to prevent and to give immediate response to any problem related with the slurry that may occur in an excavation.
