A Dragflow dredge.

Candeo Agostino, Dragflow’s client, needed to collect the mud from two equalization ponds in order to send them to the press filter and continue with the successive step in the disposal process; the operation needed to be done without emptying the pond while also protecting the plastic lining in the bottom. The client also required that the operator could work safely, due to the liquid acidity in the pond.

Easy to transport, assemble and use, the DRP18 mini dredge is controlled by a hand-held remote controller. The dredge is equipped with an eletric pump EL75,S (power up to 100 mc/h, that can be increased in case of necessity) and supplied with an acid resistant package. At the request of the client, an explosimeter was added on-board the dredge.
