Dam Liners Prices In Kenya

The damlining system comprises a geotextile fabric that is impregnated with a rubberized bitumen emulsion to create an impermeable membrane. The system is cost-effective and has been used extensively in earth dams, oxidation ponds, and canals.

Dam Liners Material Thickness Application

  1. 0.5mm liners are for smooth surfaces without stones or rocks. It will work on a surface with murram. The life span is 8 to 12 years
  2. 0.75mm liners are for rough surfaces with some stones or rocks. The lifespan is 15 to 20 years
  3. 1mm liners are for stony or rocky surfaces. The lifespan is over 25 years

The choice of liner thickness is a factor of the liner size. A liner holding 10,000 cubic is thicker than one holding 500 cubic

I. How to calculate your dam liner size

  • Measure your reservoir length (L), width (W) and depth (D) in meters
  • Apply the formula; (L+2D+2) + (W+2D+2). This converts your 3D measurement to 2D

II. Steps to install your dam liner

  • Clean up your reservoir floor to remove any debris that will perforate the liner
  • Lay your liner at the center on the floor of the reservoir
  • Spread it out to cover the entire floor and the walls
  • Make a trench 1M away from the edge of the reservoir, all around it
  • The trench measures 30cm/ 1ft deep by 30cm/ 1ft wide
  • Tuck your liner in this trench, then cover it with lots of soil

III. How To Weld Dam Liners

Factory welding. Depending on the dam liner size, weld it whole or part in the factory. The weight and volume of the welded material must be easily portable on site.  The latter factor guides how much of the dam liner material will be put together in the factory

Site or field welding. This is done on site at the point of dam liner installation. It is the joining together of the partially welded dam liner pieces from the factory. Site welding is done when the entire dam liner could not be wholly put together in the factory.

This is a result of weight or bulkiness, which limits the lifting and transportation of bulky and heavy material. The weight size of the portable material depends on the thickness of the dam liner. The thicker it is, the less it is

A wedge welding machine or a heat gun/ heat blower is the equipment that does dam liner welding. A wedge machine is what does it in the factory. The heat gun is highly portable, and so is best for field joinery

Dam liner welding involves melting the liner material under high temperature at the point of joining them. Once melted, the 2 layers are laid one over the other and as they harden, become one unit
