DWUWD-14-16-18 Dredge from 130′ to 200′ Deep
Our Dredge Works “deep dredge” is a superior design to competitive models. Due to the underwater pump, dredging in deep deposits became possible. Before the underwater pump, deep deposits were mined mechanically by clamshell, drag line, bucket ladder, air lift, or Sauremann drag bucket. Today dredging is preferred in deep deposits. Our dredge model for deep dredging is not a original concept and has been used in the past by various manufacturers.
Dredge Works studied all concepts for deep dredging and feel this is a much superior design to the massive single ladder dredge. Now dredging to 150′ or more is viable with this design. On our standard model is a 75 foot main ladder section and a second 75 foot section ladder. This portion can articulate separately to the main ladder. There are many advantages to this style.
Ability to dredge at shallower depths
Less chance of a caved in ladder or interference from underwater structure
A less overall massive build and structure
A more affordable build for our customers
A 100 % increase over a hull pump is easily achieved in this model due to limited lift of the hull pump
