The Dewatering Box has a heavy-duty screen mounted above the
floor on the inside so that material entering the box is separated
into solids and liquids. The solids remain on top of the screen
while the liquids drain down to the bottom of the box. One use for
Dewatering Boxes is when draining firewater ponds during heavy
equipment excavation. The contents of the pond are pumped out and
into a Dewatering Box, allowing the water to drain from the solid
particulates and then decanted out from the box via filter. The
solid waste may then be disposed.

The false floor system is designed to provide a partially open
filtering cage above the container floor to support waste materials
and allow liquid contents to drain into the void area below. This
is accomplished by installing a cage constructed with a carbon
steel punch plate floor and expanded metal walls 13 inches above
the container floor. This cage is supported by a series of stands
and is welded in place. The cage starts at the rear door and
extends to the front dog house or slant front wall. The area around
the dog house is covered with 3/16 plate. The cage spans the width
of the container between the walls. The drain, a 4" pipe nipple
with ball valve, is located at floor level, just behind the front
