Autonomous DredgeAutonomous Dredge, ADk Unmanned Automated Dredger. Powered by a 4, 6, 8 or 10-Inch EDDY Pump
ADk autonomous dredge system is remote operated and unmanned. This state of the art dredging system is unique to the market and improving the process for high solid pumping. All dredges use our industrial pumps, with this autonomous system using a a 4, 6, 8 or 10-Inch EDDY Pump, to match your project. This pump can move slurry, sludge and high solids up to 4000 GPM at over 400 ft of head. Our patented pump technology outperforms all centrifugal, vortex and positive displacement pumps in a variety of the most difficult pumping applications.
Autonomous Dredge, Eddy Pump has been bringing new innovative solutions to the aging dredge industry since 1987. Building on their popular autonomous submersible dredge technology, Eddy Pump engineers have developed yet another ground breaking product, the AD10K Autonomous Dredge System.
The Autonomous Unmanned Dredge AD10K
The AD10K, is a fully automated dredge with a footprint of only 650 sq. ft. By anchoring 3 to 4 cables on land, the AD10K can effectively dredge a large area without any onboard crew.
The AD10K uses an array of electronic instrumentation to control the four onboard winches to literally pull itself along a predefined dredging path, raise and lower the pump, and regulate pump RPM. Due to the cable-based pump deployment, the AD10K can dredge up to 100 ft.
At the heart of the AD10K is the 10 inch Eddy Pump, the HD10000. This pump can move slurry up to a rate of 4000 GPM at over 400 ft of head. All Eddy Pumps are uniquely engineered to outperform their competitors. Unlike alternative pumps, the Eddy Pump is optimized for:
– High Production
– High Concentration Solids
– High Viscosity and Specific Gravity Fluids
– High Abrasive and Corrosive Materials
– Low Ownership Cost
All while featuring a non-clogging design to minimize machine downtime.
All EDDY Pump dredges use our proven USA Built industrial pumps.
The core of this technology is the patented Eddy Pump technology that redefines the pumping industry, by being the only pump that utilizes the principles of a tornado to create a synchronized eddy current. This pump is not a centrifugal, positive displacement or vortex pump, but instead the most highly efficient high solids and high specific gravity pump on the market. This translates to the ability to pump higher percent solids of material and capture the heavy specific gravity gold.
