Our dredge system is highly portable and versatile. It is essentially diver operated and can deliver sediment 300 feet from the work site. The 8 inch diameter flexible hoses enable the operator to
work under any floating object, even a ship. The diver on the suction end can also be selective as to what goes up the pipe thus avoiding marine life and the recovery of unwanted sediment.
This type of pump is used extensively in the off-shore marine diamond industry and is equally capable of dredging solid material as it is with slurries.
The pump itself is 6ft x 4ft x 4ft, weighs approximately 1 tonne and is driven by a Deutz F3L914 engine. Please view this short
