Diver Operated Dredge

This diver operated dredge pump can be electric or hydraulic powered. Run 2 or 3 dive operators at once. Call about your specific project so we can match your job to the right Eddy Pump equipment.

Diver Operated Dredge System.

Our Diver Operated Dredge design is easily mobilized and designed for pumping production rates of 75 to 300 cubic yards of material per hour while pumping a higher solids content and not clogging like conventional pumps.  Units can be designed electrically or hydraulically and allow for up to three suction hoses and three divers to operate simultaneously.   Over 300-ft of suction hose can be added to the pump, which allows for the versatility not found in conventional diver operated dredges.  This allows for the easy mobility into pipelines for difficult dredging applications.   With the Eddy Pump Diver Operated Dredge you do not need booster pumps as you can easily pump over 3500-ft.

All our diver operated dredges utilize our patented pump technology that outperforms all centrifugal, vortex and positive displacement pumps in a variety of the most difficult pumping applications.

  • 4-in to 12-inch Dredges
  • 40-60% solids by volume
  • Up to three divers running simultaneously
  • Over 300-ft of suction hose
  • Pumping distances over 3500-ft

All EDDY Pump dredges and excavator cutter heads pump attachments use our patented 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.

With references from Discovery Channel’s  Bering Sea Gold in reference to the Subdredge, “There is truly no limits for this Subdredge.”.   After 4-weeks of operation under the 5-foot thick ice of Nome, Alaska, the Subdredge can truly be seen as the new wave of the future in underwater gold mining and will soon be seen by millions on the Discovery Channel! The same can be said for the Diver Operated Dredge.

Eddy Pumps power all of the equipment in our lineup. The diver unit in most cases is a modified Excavator Attachment Pump setup with a new head unit for dive dredging. This provides your operation a tool that can be used for multiple applications at a job site. Call for information.
