“The Egg Beater Dredge” is a state of the art customized dredging system unique to the market and vastly improves the process for high viscosity dredging applications.
This dredge is used to effectively agitate and mix highly viscous and thixotropic materials to make them easier to feed the pump with a more consistent flow rate. The Egg Beater agitators accomplish this by adequately liquifying thixotropic fluids enough to where the pump can maintain constant production without clogging or becoming starved for fluids.
The pump, agitators, and suction dredge work in conjunction to make this the optimal dredging system for handling compact muds or other highly viscous materials containing a high percentage of solids. This pumping system can easily pump thick mud up thousands of feet through discharge pipelines without the need for additional booster pumps.
All dredges use our industrial EDDY Pumps, with this custom dredging system powered by a 4, 6, 8, 10 or 12-Inch EDDY Pump, to match your project production requirements.
EDDY Pump has been bringing new innovative solutions to the aging dredge industry since 1984. Building on our popular slurry agitation dredge technology, EDDY Pump engineers have developed yet another groundbreaking product, the Egg Beater Dredge.
Converting to an Autonomous Unmanned Dredge
The Egg Beater Dredge can be fully attached to an automated dredge. By anchoring 3 to 4 cables on land, the equipment can effectively dredge a large area without any onboard crew. The Egg Beater Dredge uses powerful twin agitators to thoroughly mix up material just prior to being fed to the pump.

All EDDY Pump dredges use our proven USA Built industrial pumps.
The core of this design is the patented EDDY Pump technology. The design 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 effectively pump highly viscous and thixotropic materials.
We are one of the few companies who manufactures both our pumps and dredging equipment to ensure optimal support.
At the heart of the dredge is the Heavy Duty EDDY Pump. 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
